Summary: The sound is fantastic from such a small cube, but the attachment for your iPhone or iPod is a 39 pin, not the new Lightning one. Of course you can still use the cube through other connections, or buy an adaptor, you just need to be prepared for that. Prices have come down a lot since I bought mine; they are a real bargain now. It's often very convenient to be able to just disconnect the speaker from its power supply and move it with me as I go around.
Summary: Had my rcube for about 16 months, a few weeks ago the touch control panel on the unit stopped working then the internal battery packed up. Then i could"nt get it out of standby thereby making it unplayable.I took it back to the hifi shop i got it from and they were more than helpful. It was still under warranty so thankfully did,nt cost me anything. Arcam replaced the internal battery and fixed the faults. This has,nt put me off the rcube.
Summary: Really good sound for such a small box, with ipod connected sounds brill, only takes old apple connection not the iphone5, i use the arcam rwand so have portable music anywhere & stream spotify from laptop, now reduced good buy, but does not do bluetooth. Versatile little box.

Summary: My r-cube is the black version. The finish is high gloss piano black which shows every finger print, but looks very classy when buffed with a soft cloth. It is perhaps the most understated of the many i-pod docks which are available. I would say that it looks and feels like it is an Apple product, given the minimalist styling, quality finish, and combination of hard angles and softly rounded edges....it looks like.....well....like a cube.
Summary: Amazing sound, although the battery life is somewhat disappointing. Also the remote did not work at first as the supplied battery was empty. Sometimes my IPhone is not well seen, but it looks like this has to do with dirt in the connector. On the Ipod it always works and the sound is simply fantastic.
Summary: I wasn't surprised by the quality of the sound from this product as I knew it would be good from previous reviews. However Was amazed how deep the bass was even with the bass booster off. The product is heavy but extremely portable and ideal if you want to experience quality sound when on the move or room to room in your house. Well worth the money.
Summary: I've had the rcube for nearly a year and bought it for a bargain 299quid. Excellent product that I heartily recommend for the money. Don't pay more though. Only problem is that I have now bought an iPhone 5 with the new lightening connector. I will need a new wand to connect to the iPhone socket. Oh, and it looks great too.
