“We are thrilled to have the Fidelio P8 recognized with this prestigious award
from Consumers Digest,” said Keith Michael, Senior Marketing Director for P&F,
exclusive licensee for Philips consumer televisions and home theaters in North
America. “The P8 offers the excellent sound quality the Fidelio line is known
for in a stylish portable design. It is perfect for the office, a bedroom or
out on the patio to provide music for a summer party, like July 4^th
barbecues. We have had a great retail response to the product and to have
Consumers Digest recognize the excellence in sound quality right as this
product comes out is the icing on the cake.”

The Fidelio Portable Speaker range merges high-quality sound with superior
style. The P8 packs a full range of woofer drivers and wOOx technology,
delivering clear sound and surprisingly deep bass that brings your music
collection to life. Sleekly designed with premium materials and a compact
size, the P8 features a touch sensor, which activates to show how much battery
is remaining. To protect the P8 when traveling a protective pouch is included.

The Philips Fidelio Portable Speaker works with Bluetooth, so it is easy to
wirelessly stream your music from any Bluetooth-enabled device. To make sure
it is universally connectable, an audio-in makes connecting any device simple
and the Li-ion battery ensures that no matter where you go you can play your
music loudly and proudly for up to eight hours. You can also charge your
smartphone with the built-in USB port. The P8 is currently available with a
suggested retail price of $149.99.
