Samsung releases audiophile-grade dock speakers
An audiophile-worthy speaker dock for iOS devices and GALAXY S smartphones will be joining the ranks of Samsung products soon. The Samsung DA-E750 may sport a hybrid vacuum tube system akin to high-end audio equipment, but will it make the cut amongst audiophiles?
Audiophiles will be glad to know that Korean company Samsung is offering a new speaker dock, the DA-E750, with a hybrid vacuum tube amplifier technology that will interface with both iOS devices and GALAXY S smartphones while charging their batteries. For those not certain of audiophile jargons, a vacuum tube amplification system is usually present only in premium audio systems, which is said to produce one of the richest sound and has the best audio representation in clarity, despite the technology’s age. Sangchul Lee, senior vice president, Samsung Electronics says “As the leader in home entertainment, we wanted to create products that are unique, highly-functional and beautifully designed, yet offer the crystal clear, rich sound that consumers can enjoy, regardless of the portable device they store their music on.” The 2.1-channel speaker supports analog (composite) and USB inputs, as well as wireless and Bluetooth audio playback, while thumping away with its built-in 100-watt subwoofer. More details may be released at the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show.
