Audio Pro Allroom Air One AirPlay Speaker

we used to love docks – sound dock in particular. it was like the coolest accessory for your Apple small devices but now, we treasure clutter-free environment and the freedom of being non-tethered more and therefore, we looked towards AirPlay wireless streaming for that effect. though, there aren’t many AirPlay…

Xiaomi Box

we have seen quite a lot of media players but as far as aesthetic goes, most of the them sticks to the safe rectangular black box. with the new Xiaomi Box, it not only looks different from the sea of media boxes but it also boast an incredible low price point of 399 RMB or about US$64. measuring a mere 4.1 inches by 4.1 inches (105 x 105 mm) and 0.8 inch (21 mm) thick, it sports…

JBL SoundFly Air

JBL SoundFly Air | US$199.00 | www.jbl.com we know. by now you probably already given up on docking your iOS device to a sound dock (it just sound so passe, doesn’t it?) and the safer bet for compatibility sake for your iOS device is probably AirPlay. however, finding an AirPlay-enabled speaker that’s truly portable ain’t […]

AQ SmartSpeaker

for some, simply having a good sounding speaker isn’t enough. it got to have the look to match. as such, a speaker such as the AQ SmartSpeaker that has been allotted with multiple Red Dot Design Awards should favor those with a taste for more than just audio reproduction. sporting an uncommon smooth organic form that you will usually find in high-end audio equipment, the…

Unmonday 4.3L Ceramic Speaker

the moment you hear the name Unmonday, you know you are going to see something unusual. why not? even the name itself implies that or at least that’s what we thought. anyway, Unmonday is a Finland-based speaker firm that wants to reaffirm how audio should be delivered: completely wireless and expandable, wrapped in a single stylish, hexagon ceramic enclosure that’s…

Libratone Zipp

many of us have been reaping the benefit of Apple’s AirPlay that offers us wireless, lossless streaming but still we face an issue: wireless network. yea. however good the AirPlay is, it won’t work without a wireless network which we suspect is also the very reason why Bluetooth streaming suddenly becomes a more favorable proposition. with the Libratone Zipp, AirPlay…

Bowers & Wilkins A5 & A7 Wireless Music Systems

the term sound dock is pretty much quite short lived. these days, wireless is name of the game and if you are still traumatized by the new Lightning connector, then perhaps going wireless will offer you some assurance that it will be a little more future-proof. speaking of which, Bowers & Wilkins has two…

Bose SoundLink Air Digital Music System

we know it sucks to know that the new iPhone 5 now sports the new Lightning connector that renders all your ‘old’ accessories that uses the 30-pin dock connector useless. that actually thought us a valuable lesson: do not rely on connectors and wireless streaming is the way to go, and for the case of Apple’s devices, AirPlay would be the safer bet for many years to come…

Denon Cocoon

despite the rumor of the new iPhone sporting a newly design docking pin, Denon has pushed ahead announcing it’s first sound dock dubbed as Cocoon. though, Denon has little to worry about as the Cocoon is equipped with Apple’s AirPlay which should make it last for years to come, well, at least until Apple decided to axe AirPlay, which is of course, an unlikely scenario…
