Samsung launching multi-device compatible audiophile speaker docks
Coming slightly out of left-field here compared to the company’s usual offerings, Samsung are to be showcasing a new range of high-end speaker docks at next week’s CES show in Las Vegas.
A pair of high-end systems are on the way, with Samsung claiming that they’ve “raised the bar in sound quality for mainstream audio products.”
First up is the DA-E670 Audio Dock. It’s capable of outputting 40 watts of power, as well as packing in its own subwoofer. More unusually though is its ability to support both iOS devices (iPod, iPhone and iPad), as well as Samsung’s own Galaxy S line of mobiles and PMP devices. We’re not sure yet whether this means the device will also be compatible with other Android mobiles, but it’ll be music to the ears of the legions that bought the Samsung Galaxy S II, looking to beef up its audio output potential.
Even more exciting is the audiophile-grade DA-E750. It uses Samsung’s vacuum tube amplifier technology, and looks to combine the best of digital amps with the warmth you’d find with traditional vacuum tube audio systems. As with the DA-E670, it’ll support Samsung’s AllShare technology and Apple’s Airplay.
Looking very intriguing indeed. No word on pricing or availability on this pair yet, but we’ll hopefully get some ears-on time with the kit come next week’s big tech show in Vegas.
