Posted by: STAFF
Today's need for protecting data has been encouraging many manufacturers to develop and deliver products that can keep your data with you and protected.

Bayan 7 iPod and iPhone Speaker Dock Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 11:52A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I heard about Bayan Audio`s line of iPhone speaker docks some time ago, mentioned in the same breath as Bowers & Wilkins and Bang & Olufsen- well known as quality speaker manufacturers. When the Bayan 7 was released and I had a chance to provide a review of the same, I jumped at the opportunity. The Bayan 7 is the top-of-the-line option from the firm, offering quality at a considerable price -- $450 is a lot for a speaker dock, almost as much as a new iPhone. In order to be worth that high price point, these speakers would have to exhibit flawless audio quality, good usability and a novel and beautiful design. Read on to find out if the Bayan 7 meets my admittedly high standards. A link to the article would be much appreciated."
