Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy iPod music in Hi-Fi sound

Experience your iPod music in superb sound quality with the DCB146. Just dock your iPod and enjoy music the way you like it. Enjoy superb clarity with built-in DAB tuner with this Micro system.

Enjoy your music from multiple sources

Play and charge your iPod
Enjoy your favourite MP3 music while charging your iPod! The dock lets you connect your iPod directly to the Docking entertainment system so you can listen to your favourite music in superb quality. It also charges your iPod while it plays so you can enjoy your music and not have to worry about your iPod battery running out. Use the remote control to navigate, select and playback the music stored on your iPod. The Docking entertainment system automatically charges your iPod while it is docked.

Play CD, CD-R and CD-RW
Philips is known for making products which are compatible with many discs available in the market. This audio system lets you enjoy music from CD, CD-R and CD-RW. A single CD can store up to 10 hours of music. CD-RW (CD-Rewritable Compatible) means that your audio system can play both CD-Recordable (CD-R) and CD-Rewritable (CD-RW) discs. CD-R discs are recordable once and can be played on any audio CD player while CD-RW discs can be recorded and rewritten multiple times and can only be played back on compatible audio CD players.

Enrich your sound experience

Dynamic Bass Boost for deep and dramatic sound
Dynamic Bass Boost maximises your music enjoyment by emphasising the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings – from low to high – at the touch of a button! Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.

Easy to use

Wake-Up and Sleep Timer
Many alarm clocks feature a variety of alarm choices. This Philips Clock radio wakens you with the radio or the traditional alarm buzzer. The Sleep Timer allows you to programme the required length of time for the music to coincide with how long you normally take to fall asleep. No matter what your alarm clock needs, whether it’s a morning buzzer that produces a steady tone, or listening to your favourite music as you go to sleep, this clock radio has it all.

Digital tuning with 20 pre-set stations for extra convenience
Simply tune into the station that you want to preset, then press and hold the preset button to memorise the frequency. With preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.
