Sick of those £50 iPod docks that spew out meek music? Then try Arcam's rCube for size; Wi-Fi meets Hi-Fi on this ‘pod-friendly speaker that's about as high-end as it gets at this size. Ready for more good news? It's portable. Yup - unplug the 5kg...

Arcam rCube - £500

 

Arcam has distilled its audio expertise into a compact iPod system - the rCube. Richard Black asks if this is the ideal office/kitchen set-up?

Impressively capable sonically, with good, clear sound

Wi-fi connectivity is an optional extra and it could do with a radio tuner

If you have a music library on an iPod, this is a great way to enjoy it (almost) anywhere

The Arcam rCube is the portable home speaker system that Apple should have invented.

The Arcam rCube matches a minimalist design aesthetic that Apple would be proud of, with sensational audio performance and smart wireless functionality. With a recent price drop it really does earn its five-star reviews.

Arcam claims its has made the 'world's best' iPod dock... and we wholeheartedly agree.

The Arcam rCube may have come too late to be entered into our 2010 Awards, but for me it would have been my product of the year. As it stands it is day one of 2011 and it will take something truly special over the next 364 days to displace it in my...

Given that it's gunning for B&W's mighty Zeppelin iPod dock, the rCube doesn't look like much of a challenger. At 20cm cubed, it looks almost comically small in this assembled company – but, as every sensible person knows, size isn't everything.

It handles complex or muddy mixes without breaking a sweat, and can turn its hand from a massed orchestral assault to a single-voice-with-guitar with ease.

Best iPod dock ?150-?400, Awards 2011. Plenty to offer including unique streaming features, and recent price drop makes it even better value

Compact, solid build; cohesive sound; wireless options with multiroom potential; more portable than most; price cut

Fairly lightweight; vocals lack a touch of clarity

Review: Arcam rCube

 

This iPhone/iPod dock from the British audio specialist sports a unique design and lets you cut the power cord with a built-in battery. Here's our take on it.

Warm, clear sound signature; portable; sounds great with wireless dongle

Expensive; wireless attachments add to cost; bass could be a tad deeper

The wireless indicator light turns green when music is streaming from the rWand+. (Credit: Timothy Fernandez/CNET Asia)
