The Philips DCM292 micro system with iPhone docking station from DCC – who needs a Hi-Fi?

Who needs a complicated, multi-component Hi-Fi system when you can have one sleek, stylish device that does it all, including docking and charging your iPhone or iPod? The Philips DCM292 micro system from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) lets you play and charge your Apple devices, enjoy music from CDs, or connect any portable music player to the USB Direct or MP3 link. And all of this comes in a slick, flat, wall mountable package guaranteed to compliment any home, office or even bedroom.

“The Philips DCM292 micro music system is feature rich, elegantly designed and most importantly delivers incredible sound quality. With Digital Sound Control for optimised music style settings and Dynamic Bass Boost for deep and dramatic sound, the DCM292 delivers an incredible 20W RMS total output power all delivered in one compact, versatile device,” says Bruce Byrne, Visual Communications Specialist at DCC.

“RMS refers to Root Mean Square, which is a typical measurement of audio power, or rather, the electrical power transferred from an audio amplifier to a loudspeaker, which is measured in watts. The amount of electrical power delivered to the loudspeaker and its sensitivity determines the sound power that is generated. The higher the wattage, the better the sound power emitted by the speaker,” he adds.

Digital Sound Control offers a choice of pre-set controls and lets you get the most out of your music by precisely adjusting the sound balance to match the type of music. Dynamic Bass Boost emphasises the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings at the touch of a button, perfect for getting that party started.

Aside from incredible sound quality and the ability to play music from a host of devices, the DCM292 includes a built-in FM radio with digital tuning and preset stations for added convenience. The CD player is cunningly concealed behind the front panel, accessible by means of a motorised sliding front door. Headphone output is supported, for private listening capability, and a remote control lets you change the music from across the room.

“Today’s world is all about choice, and we have a huge variety of music devices to choose from. The Philips DCM292 lets you play all of them using one stylish, compact and affordable device, which also acts as a charging station for iPods and iPhones into the bargain. It is ideal for home or even office applications and delivers Philips’ renowned quality and sound,” Byrne concludes.
