Philips Fidelio SoundSphere Mini: large sound, small footprint

Jun 12, 2012

If you want an audio solution that isn’t going to look too bulky in your home or office environment, it may be worth taking a gander at the Philips Fidelio SoundSphere Mini. The set of speakers can connect to your PC via a USB cable, or you can dock an iPhone using the slide out tray to blast out your tunes. If neither of those options suit you, there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack for maximum compatibility.

This latest product from Philips is modelled after the DS9800W series, but fits into a more compact package. The company says that this new mini offering has the similar internals to the big brother, packing in a 25mm soft dome tweeter that has been separated from the main speaker cabinet into a separate aluminium arm. That isolates it from any vibrations or other sound waves, providing a better audio experience overall.

Everything is bi-amped and includes a Class D 50Watt RMS, with each driver being powered independently for better sound. Sound like the audio solution you’re looking for? Be prepared to pay £399 for it on Apple’s online store. It should be available right now.
