If you've got a digital audio source, Samsung's DA-E750 can connect to it, either through its built-in dock (it supports some Samsung devices and 30-pin iOS connectors), or wirelesly, via just about any wireless standard, including Samsung's AllShare, Apple AirPlay, and Bluetooth. It's also great looking, and includes two vacuum tubes for that warm analog sound. Whether or not the tubes actually help, the DA-E750 does sound very good. But at over $600, it's one of the most expensive audio docks around, and tubes or not, it doesn't necessarily sound better than docks selling for less, like the $400 JBL OnBeat Xtreme -- though no other dock matches the DA-E750 for looks, versatility, and retro tech. Just be careful not to break those tubes.

The Samsung DA-E750 is by far the best-looking audio dock out there, with support for AirPlay and Bluetooth, but its extravagant price keeps it from being a good value for most buyers.

From vacuum tubes to dual docks to multiple wireless streaming platforms, the Samsung Wireless Audio Dock (DA-E750) is loaded. And it's one of the best-looking speaker systems we've seen—with one of the highest price tags.

Samsung's DA-E750 wireless audio dock is a high quality, all-in-one mini hi-fi that's a smart choice if you've got a household divided in their choice of smartphone. It's got all manner of wireless connectors, and plenty of wired options besides.

The DA-E750’s feature list is equally attractive, leaving its competitors standing ... the limited format support (no FLAC or AAC) and lack of radio tuners are disappointing ... But even when you take these drawbacks into consideration, we still think the DA-E750 deserves our recommendation.

We can’t think of a better sounding single-box solution than the Samsung DA-E750. Its convenience and sleek good looks set it apart and will offer a unique appeal to those who prefer simple, classy design and advanced functionality.

Great product overall, awesome design, sound is per expectation. The AirPlay connectivity works like a charm, But it's unacceptable that the Samsung Galaxy S3 can't remote control the DA-E750, the Samsung android app is minimal, ok support through Skifta, but no volume level control... Samsung,...
