Perfect audio fidelity for the discerning Android user

When a device boasts the Philips Fedelio branding, it is often prudent for audiophiles to take note. The pedigree of the Fidelio series has been acknowledged over the course of the past few years as the last word on audio docks, clinching the coveted Editor’s Choice award for Best Speaker Docking Station two years running at the HWM + Tech Awards. The Philips Fidelio Primo DS9000 won in 2011, while the Philips Fidelio Primo DS9/10 took it home this year.

Following this success, Philips has expanded the Fidelio line-up with the Fidelio AS851, the world’s first Android speaker dock. Instantly recognizable as a product from the same genus as the DS9/10 and DS9000 due to its curved back design, the AS851 brings this same high quality Fidelio engineering and audio performance to Android users.

Fidelio, now for Android

Android smartphones come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with many devices featuring non-standard placement of their micro-USB port. When developing the new Fidelio, compatibility with Android devices was a paramount consideration, resulting in the smart FlexiDock system. Philips engineers designed the FlexiDock to be rotatable up to 180 degrees with adjustable positioning, makingg the AS851 compatible with virtually any Android device in the market. In addition, two support blocks with independent height settings are present to ensure devices fit snugly and securely into the AS851.

A 3.5mm port and IR remote are also included as part of the overall package. With these design considerations, the Fidelio AS851 is more than equipped to meet the high standards Philips aims for, finally delivery a worthy docking speaker system for Android.
