Still convinced that you need a docking speaker for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? The JBL OnBeat Rumble ($400) isn't a bad choice. In addition to the two tweeters, it features a 4.5-inch down-firing subwoofer for deep bass. Other features include a two-tone, orange and black paint scheme, an auxiliary input for legacy devices, and Bluetooth - so as it turns out, you don't really need that Lightning dock anyway.
Bringing classic electronics into the modern era isn't always easy, but the OD-11 Cloud Speaker ($TBA) does so with elegance and class. Based on the original Carlsson OD-11 from 1974, this deceptively simple, roughly 10 inch cube features built-in Wi-Fi, an integrated 100W amplifier, a single woofer, and a single tweeter, all of which combine for terrific sound in nearly any room. The remote communicates with the box via Bluetooth 4, and features a magnet on the back so you can stick it anywhere you find handy. With 3.5mm and optical inputs for other audio sources and the ability to be used in pairs for left/right separation, it's a great choice for minimalist interiors.
Well, we didn't see this one coming. The Samsung F750 Vacuum Tube Soundbar ($650) packs a decidedly audiophile feature — an integrated vacuum tube — into the un-audiophile sound bar form factor. While the goal is warmer, more natural sound, other features — like a gyroscope to optimize sound quality based on height, rotation, and slope and a wireless subwoofer — will likely make a difference too. In keeping with the wireless theme, it also offers Bluetooth for cordlessly connecting your smartphone, tablet, or even TV if it supports that kind of thing.
