Product Information

  • Overview

    The Philips DC291 docking clock radio delivers surprisingly rich, deep sound in a stylish and attractive brushed aluminum finish.

    Wake up your way

    Dual alarms let you set different times for weekdays and weekends, or even vary the alarm settings for more than one person. The gentle wake up feature gradually increases alarm volume, and allows you to wake to your favorite music, radio station, or buzzer alarm.

    Great sound and convenience

    The Digital Sound Control and Dynamic Bass Boost features combine to provide sound performance that rivals much larger audio systems. The smartly designed spring-loaded docking port allows you to effortlessly dock your iPod, iPhone, or iPad, even in a protective case. And when you connect and dock your device, the DC291 automatically synchronizes the clock with it within a few seconds. So you never need to set the time manually.

    My only problem is the ipad is a little hard to get docked, especially if the Smart Cover is on. A few times I thought I docked it, but in the morning realized the plug was only wedged betweeen the smart cover and the ipad!

    The remote control works but I wish it were a little more hefty. It feels so lightweight that it's kinda like a toy remote. If the line of sight is blocked, the remote doesn't work very well.

    Overall, this is a beautiful piece of equipment that works well with your ipod/ipad.

    Sounds great, looks great. Unfortunately it does NOT have battery back-up. If power is lost the alarm and time are re-set. I confi Sounds great, looks great. Unfortunately it does NOT have battery back-up. If power is lost the alarm and time are re-set. I confirmed this with Philips who pointed out that the documentation shipped with the product describes this.How stupid is that? They couldn't tell me what the batteries actually do.

    Also, whenever my phone is docked, the radio cuts out for 3-15 seconds on a seemingly random basis.

    then in the fall of 2012, I started getting error messages about being incompatible with iPhone. I have the 4GS; did a software up then in the fall of 2012, I started getting error messages about being incompatible with iPhone. I have the 4GS; did a software upgrade to the phone eliminate the utility of this as an iPhone speaker? It appears so. The docks will still charge the iPhone, but it stopped communicating to the Philips speakers. I'm surprised the Apple Store is still selling it. The compatibility list for this device needs to be updated.

I was immediately impressed with the sound quality. It does only play FM stations. But, if you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod you can download apps through the app store, connect it to this baby & it will play the radio through the device!

    I have owned a Bose stereo, & if you know the company. They produce High Quality audio at a high price tag. Where as this device sounds almost..if not just as good. It has several sound options to adjust to what type of music your listening to. So if you want a quality item for a fraction of the price..look no further! I absolutely love it! :-D
