iLuv has created a docking station for Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablets. The ArtStation Pro turns the hugely popular range form slate to complete home-entertainment setup, adding a sturdy stand that allows the tablet to be rotated to either landscape or portrait mode.
Most recently, the company scored a five-star write-up with the £40 iMM289, which proved simple but effective for the money.
The iMM727 – aka ‘The ArtStation’ – , while not exactly at the other end of the price spectrum, has many more features. Thanks to the adjustable, rotating dock, it works with iPads, iPhones and iPods, while in addition to the usual 3.5mm analogue stereo input there’s also a USB connection, the latter letting you connect to your computer to sync a docked iOS device. Also on offer is the a free iLuv App, allowing your Apple handheld to function as an internet radio tuner when docked, and also deliver functions including weather information and an alarm clock.
Small in stature, but can produce a big sound We’re impressed with the design of these lovable little cubes; they sound a lot bigger than they look, and their price is reasonable. Unlike most of the options here, the iLuv Boom Cubes are a two-part stereo system and resemble satellite speakers found in a compact home cinema package. Attaching to a laptop or desktop computer via either USB or 3.5mm jack, there’s less boom than the name suggests. But the spacious, detailed and balanced stereo sound created makes these excellent value.
