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 spent three years perfecting this unassuming cube, and yes, all the expensive stuff is on the inside. The British brand has used the same capacitors and amps found in its high-end FMJ hi-fi components and blessed it with wireless streaming and a battery offering up to eight hours of playtime. Arcam recons it’s the ultimate iPod dock and we’re inclined to agree.
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.
