Hands-on Review: Arcam rCube iPod Speaker Dock

 

Arcam's rCube costs a bunch, but it delivers the sonic goods in a small package.

Notable new Blu-ray and DVD releases in stores this week.

Can this high-end speaker dock offer a performance that matches its price?

Robust and stylish ; Rechargeable battery ; Excellent sound

Heavily compressed MP3s grate

A well-made and feature packed speaker dock with a stellar sound.

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

Arcam rCube review

 

Apple's one venture into own-branded speakers was the quickly forgotten Apple iPod Hi-Fi – a great, big slab that looked like a single speaker had toppled onto its side.

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 rCube

 

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...

Whether you're an MP3 fan or WAV aficionado, the rCube serves up an expertly balanced, dynamic sound

Arcam's hi-fi credentials + slick tech = a new leading iPod system

Arcam rCube review

 

The rCube has the ability to send audio from one rCube to another, giving you a little multiroom syste

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

Fairly lightweight ; vocals lack a touch of clarity

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

The design is intuitive, and the controls simple enough for any hi-fi novice to get the most out of their money.
