Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Speaking allowed

Just above the dock connector there’s an unobtrusive microphone that allows the Audio Dock to act as a speakerphone – there's one on the back too, to facilitate noise cancellation – and a conveniently timed phone call allowed to me confirm that the speakerphone features work very well.

Interfacing provides support for telephony with external devices

A glance around the back of the unit also reveals audio input and output connectors that allow you to connect the Audio Dock to a Mac or PC so that you can use it with VOIP applications such as Skype.

It all sounds rather good, apart from the UK pricing

Verdict

The Audyssey South of Market audio dock is certainly a high-quality piece of kit, and its iPhone app will appeal to audio buffs who like to fine-tune the sound themselves. Even so, its £349 price tag seems a bit steep, especially if you don’t need its Bluetooth and telephony features. I’m impressed by the sheer quality of its design and construction, but it still looks a bit over-priced given that the US price is only $400. ®
