Technology follows patterns. You can see it in mobile handsets; they were big, they got small, then they got big again. OK, that’s a bit of a simple example, but the trends are there, very often arising from the desires of consumers (and sometimes dictating those desires.)

Philips Sound Tower DCM5090

Since the days of the original Sony Walkman, personal audio has been a big thing. The advent of MP3 players - particularly Apple’s iPod - spurred this idea further. But it wasn’t long after that people realised that part of the joy of music is sharing it, rather than being the antisocial one with the headphones in the corner of the room. And so a host of iPod and MP3 player docks are available. However, the desire for a music system that can accommodate a host of sources - not unlike those clunky old component HI-FI systems - has pretty much always bubbles under the surface. Thanks to new techniques and technologies, these kinds of devices are better than ever.

Philips has a great one in the form of the Sound Tower. This particularly aptly named device is great for music lovers, because it pretty much covers all of the bases. There’s an iPod dock in the top. The front features a vertical slit for CDs and MP3 CDs. In the back, there’s a USB port and a line-in jack. In one fell swoop, Philips have taken care of every modern music source, and packaged it all in a stylish column that delivers awesome sound.

Using a 3.1 speaker system that totals up to around 200W RMS of sound power, the Sound Tower delivers great stereo audio. Living Sound technology creates a surprisingly wide stereo sound, considering that it originates from one relatively slender source.

Perhaps best of all is that the Sound Tower looks great. Its aesthetic would feel at home in virtually any environment; it is a relatively tall, slender column, finished in black and silver. The speakers are covered by a durable black cloth, while the top of the device - just to the front of the iPod dock - features a tasteful LED display and touch-sensitive control panel. A full-function remote allows for easy control even at a distance.

Ease of use, including effortless switching between music sources, combines with elegance in this unit. It feels equally at home in a loud party as it does when some quiet mood music is called for, and the exceptional sound delivery remains constant across all volume levels. The built-in sub-woofer ensures clear bass, while the high quality speaker system maintains clarity no matter how loud (or soft) the music is.

Philips have a real winner in this beautifully built device, and any music lover with an eye for good looks will absolutely love it.
