The good: The Samsung DA-E750 is the best-looking AirPlay speaker we've seen, with a beautiful furniture-grade cherry finish. It supports AirPlay and Bluetooth, and also features a retractable dock for iOS devices (including iPads), Samsung Galaxy SII and S3 phones, and the Samsung Galaxy Note. Wi-Fi is built in, plus there's an Ethernet port on the back. And sound quality is solid for an audio dock.
The bad: At $700, the DA-E750 is very expensive for an audio dock; you can put together a better-sounding system for less money. There also aren't many options for adjusting the sound, which can make a big difference with smaller systems like this. And although its sound quality is good, it's not head and shoulders above other audio docks, which you might expect given the price.
The bottom line: The Samsung DA-E750 is by far the best-looking audio dock out there, with support for AirPlay and Bluetooth, but its extravagant price keeps it from being a good value for most buyers.
