Samsung Audio Dock

Tired of dime-a-dozen speakers for your iDevice? Then the Samsung Audio Dock ($TBA) should be a breath of fresh air. Offering compatibility with the iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Samsung Galaxy S devices, this upscale speaker dock features hybrid vacuum tube amplifier technology to combine the clarity of digital amplification with the warm sound of tubes, a 2.1-channel speaker setup with built-in subwoofer and 100 Watts of sound, analog and USB inputs, and support for AllShare, AirPlay, and Bluetooth wireless audio streaming.

  • Cantata Music Center

    Its name might lead you to think it was a music venue, but the Cantata Music Center (£6,000, roughly $9,700) is actually one of the world's best — and most expensive — USB-based Digital Audio Converters. Able to handle a variety of sources, from CDs via the built-in player to digital audio files stored on your Mac, PC, or NAS, the Cantata can also handle wireless or wired links via the Pont Neuf add-on, outputting its pristine audio over XLR or RCA outputs. The worst part? It'll probably end up in an entertainment center, where the gorgeous body and LED display will be hidden from view.

  • McIntosh 50th Anniversary MC275 Tube Amplifier

    Tube amps have long been praised for their natural, warm sound, and now you can get that classic sound and treatment in a modern package with the McIntosh 50th Anniversary MC275 Tube Amplifier ($6,500). Sporting a gold-toned chassis, this limited edition MC275 merges the classic 1961 tube circuit design of the original with modern niceties like a multi-colored LED display, a High Speed Sentry Monitor circuit to automatically turn the amp off should a tube wear out, and Power Control input and output. Coming to an impressive hi-fi setup near you — complete with commemorative book and packaging — in December.
