Maybe it’s the old-school wood-grain finish and audiophile sound quality, or perhaps the fact that it’s refreshingly compatible with both Apple and Samsung Galaxy devices. Whatever the reason, we’re totally coveting this wireless dock from Samsung. Emanating a warm glow from beneath a glass portal, the starring all-analogue dual vacuum-tube preamp path is combined with a precision digital output amplifier. Translation for non-audio geeks: it delivers crystal-clear sound while reducing harsh distortion. The 2.1-channel woven glass-fibre speakers and powerful built-in subwoofer crank out 100 watts of sound for deeper bass, richer vocals and vibrant acoustics. AllShare Play and Apple AirPlay support allows wireless steaming from Samsung smartphones and tablets, as well as all iOS devices, respectively. Composite auxiliary input, USB Host 2.0 and connectivity via Bluetooth 3.0 with superior apt-X codec provide for ultimate flexibility and cord-free listening from anywhere in the home. Available in mahogany (pictured) or piano black, the dock also charges your devices while streaming music, so you’re always ready to crank it up to 11.
