I don’t know about you, but most of the time that I see a cube, I would think of the Borg collective. Yes, those unfeeling cybernetic lifeforms whose trademark phrase would be, “Resistance is futile.” Well, this time around, the cube that we are looking at would be the Satechi Audio Cube that has gone through a fair number of changes over the generations, resulting in one of the best efforts from Satechi to date.
The updated square design would be the most noticeable change, where it now comes in a rubberized exterior with a sleek, glossy control panel. Regardless, it has not put on weight as it remains compact and featherlight at 9.6oz., which is small enough to hunker down into a purse, briefcase, or backpack. There is also a new top button panel which delivers improved control of your media playback compared to previous models. Satechi is asking $49.99 for this – are you willing to part with such money for it?
