Philips Micro Music System review – The swiss army knife of music systems

If you’ve got an iPhone you know full well there are loads of great music “docks” available – plug your phone in, and play your music nice and loud.  In fact, if you’ve got an iPhone and don’t have some sort of speaker system you’re crazy – that little smartphone is a powerhouse for music – especially when accompanied by a solid speaker/dock.  We’ve taken a look at the  Philips Micro Music System which does so much.

I first thought this was another dock.. Then I had a little look around it.

Stylish design, thin at the top and edges but curved around the back it would look great on a mantle or kitchen bench.

Then there is your CD player in the top – a rare thing in modern multi-systems, and of course out front – the iPhone dock.

When I say iPhone, this is so well designed you’ll also be able to throw your iPad, or iPod in there too.

It’s great, and the sound is just what you’d want – nothing amazing to be frank, but the quality any average consumer would enjoy.  That said, we’ve got two speakers, a 2.75 inch woofer and the sound at 20W is everything you could want.
