Samsung DA-E651 review

7.9

Enjoying your music always and everywhere in a way you have never done before? That is possible with the Samsung DA-E651 wireless audio dock! At least, that is what they promise. It is our job to check if those promises can live up to our expectations…

Perfect match
South Korean Samsung is one of the world’s largest multinationals and the first trimester of 2012, Samsung claimed together with Apple pretty much all profits in the Smartphone market: a match made in heaven? That might be one step too far, although they can perfectly coexist, so why not put a dual docking-system on the market that offers the possibility to enjoy your music from different smart appliances such as the Samsung Galaxy-appliances via a 5-pins dock and Apple-appliances such as iPhone and iPod via a 30-pins dock.
When using the DA-E651 wireless audio dock Samsung promises an optimal sound quality with the built-in subwoofer, glass fibre speakers and USB-port. Also, loss of quality when transferring music doesn’t stand a chance thanks to the Bluetooth 3.0 with apt-X-technology. Access all your music, even in digital format thanks to USB-memory sticks. And thanks to the Aux-input you will get access to numerous other sound sources. Every appliance with a 3.5 mm-plug, such as your cd- or dvd-player, karaoke machine, MP3-player or record player can be connected. The sky is the limit!

And action!
So full of expectation we are getting started! When opening the box and revealing the DA-E651and the eye being delighted thanks to the great looks of the horn shaped design it is tempting to blast your favourite music from your speakers immediately. In my mind I automatically start looking for a place in the interior which will get a trendy touch instantly. The first impression is definitely a positive one.

After everything is unpacked and displayed, it immediately becomes clear that you don’t have to be a genius to get the appliance to start because there are only eight separate parts. With the manual within reach I get to work as fast as I can to let the DA-E651 wireless audio dock show what it is worth. Everything is explained step by step and after I successfully connected the DC-adapter, the remote is next. That one puts my patience to the test because I almost lost a nail in the struggle to open the lid…
