Audio Dock Air: a concert amp in your workspace

It's about the size of two Wiis stuck together, but it sounds like a six-foot-high concert amp. We review Audyssey's bombastic amplifier.

  • Big bass
  • Concert hall sense of drama
  • Good build quality

The Audio Dock Air, then. It’s not just that this is a loud speaker - and it most definitely is - it’s also that the bass is girder-rattlingly strong.

Bass is always a battleground for speakers and headphones. Most mid-range speakers - sets that cost anything from around £80 to the mid-hundreds - have bass that is perfectly capable, if not especially moving, and we’re so used to hearing them that when a speaker like this comes along that belts out great thwacks of bass, our first reaction is to recoil.
