Bose Sound Dock 10 and Denon S-52 – Two Cool Music Electronic Gadgets |

Bose has big reputation when it comes to producing good quality audio devices and their marketing strategies too are quite clever. Bose Sound Dock 10 is a good example of this. This is one of those electronic gadgets without any on board controls and the manufacturer has embedded minimal styling here with a cool remote. This system has that ‘wow’ factor which you look for in lifestyle accessories.Bose Sound Dock 10 is very impressive in weight and size. It does a good job of being heard seen. Bluetooth dock is also available separately for £129 and through this; you can stream the music wirelessly along with memory for storing six devices. Bose Sound Dock 10 is big enough to fill up an entire room but the overall sound disappointed me a bit. Initially, it was very impressive but it doesn’t have that ‘special’ thing to justify the price tag and hype that surrounds these high end electronic gadgets. The system wasn’t really responsive while navigating the iPod play lists through the bundled remote. This might frustrate people who lack patience.If you are looking for some kind of iPod dock, take a look at Denon S-52 which comes with plenty of features. The audio options on these electronic gadgets are really comprehensive, you get CD player, AM/FM radio, HD radio, XM satellite radio (for this, you will have to purchase add-on XM mini-tuner along with a valid subscription), USB port (for WMA audio and MP3 files playback), iPod dock, Wi-Fi and wired network connection for streaming the digital audio files on networked computers.Denon S-52 has a dock connection for iPods and this system supports all iPods. There are adapters to fit in various sizes. One intriguing feature here is that these electronic gadgets let you control and navigate through the music with remote control on the display on the unit. You will have to close to the unit for this because the display is kind of small. But if you are having a lot of artists on the Apple iPod, you will have to spend a lot of time in front of the player because there is no way to skip through the lists.I was also disappointed to see that the Denon S-52 doesn’t have a video out on the back. You won’t be able to play any videos. This device automatically charges your music player when you plug it inside the dock. In terms of audio quality, the Denon S-52 is really good. All major file formats like FLAC, AAC, WAV, WMA, and MP3 are supported. MP3 and WMA based internet stations too work; they are managed through the manufacturer’s Website.Apart from standard FM/AM, the Denon S-52 has support for tuning in the digital HD stations but then, the reception depends on the signal in your area so you need to check. There is also an alarm on these electronic gadgets for waking yourself up in the morning. You can adjust the volume of this alarm. Finally, this system has detachable antennas for FM, Wi-Fi and AM.
