Hands-on Review: Arcam rCube iPod Speaker Dock

Electronic House

Gear Patrol
12 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The Arcam rCube is another high-end iPhone dock to hit the home audio market along the lines of the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air . What sets Arcam’s offering apart from the rest is the Sonos-like ability to wirelessly network up to four rCubes throughout the house, using an included USB dongle, for a complete home audio solution. The same dongle enables the box to stream music from your iDevice or computer as well.

  • Excerpt: Apple’s Steve Jobs always had a thing about cubes (G4, NeXT), and a love of music. Arcam’s very Apple-like rCube speaker system looks and sounds so good Steve would have been happy to have stuck the company logo on it.

  • Excerpt: Arcam’s most obvious superpower over the other docks here is its portability — you can slip your hand behind the top-mounted dock-flap into a hidden grab handle, and off you go, taking 5kg of Arcam hi-fi performance on the trot. You shouldn’t do this with an iPod in place, warns the manual, though we did so perfectly safely before reading that warning (who reads warnings!), just taking care it didn’t either get bent or drop out while in transit.

Arcam rCube review

Stuff.tv
18 December 2010
  • Summary: Given that it's gunning for B&W's mighty Zeppelin iPod dock, the rCube doesn’t look like much of a challenger. At 20cm cubed, it looks almost comically small in this assembled company – but, as every sensible person knows, size isn’t everything. Besides, take a look at the price – if that doesn’t put it straight into the Zeppelin's airspace, we don’t know what does.

Arcam rCube review

Pocket Lint

  • Excerpt: Sick of those £50 iPod docks that spew out meek music? Then try Arcam’s rCube for size; Wi-Fi meets Hi-Fi on this ‘pod-friendly speaker that’s about as high-end as it gets at this size. Ready for more good news? It’s portable. Yup - unplug the 5kg rCube from the mains and its internal Lithium-ion battery will keep going for between 4 and 8 hours. There’s even a grip-hole hidden just behind the iPod dock for carrying the thing around.
  • Pros: Loud volumes, portability, design, build quality, multi-room and streaming possibilities
  • Cons: Acoustic music, fiddly remote

Test: iPod-Lautsprecher Arcam rCube

Macwelt
28 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Arcam, seit 1976 ein englischer Hersteller von hochwertigen Hi-Fi-Geräten, hat sich für seinen Einstieg in die Dock-Lautsprecher-Sparte etwas Besonderes einfallen lassen. Der mobile rCube ist nicht nur ein Lautsprecher mit Dock für den iPod und das iPhone, sondern auch ein Funklautsprecher. Passende Sender-adapter gibt es mit Dock-Anschluss für die Apple-Player (rWand+, 100 Euro extra) und mit USB-Anschluss für den Rechner.

  • Pros: Elegantes Design, flexibel einsetzbar, integrierter Akku, ausgewogener Klang selbst bei geringem Pegel, mehrere Geräte können per Funk verbunden werden, mobile Geräte können über Funk eingebunden werden
  • Cons: USB-Eingang dient allein für Updates und kann nicht als zusätzliche Quelle genutzt werden.
