Our take on the Samsung HT-WDC10

by Ralph Graves

Wouldn't it be great if you could play music from your iPod or iPhone through your new Samsung HW-D450 or HW-D550 sound bar and get the same stunning sound you enjoy from your movies?

Yes, it would — and the HT-WDC10 wireless dock makes it possible.

The dock's removable wireless cradle gives you some cool flexibility. You can play your music while the cradle's in the base, and let your iPod charge at the same time. Or remove the cradle and docked player and stroll around the room while the music keeps playing. The cradle wirelessly streams music from your iPod or iPhone to the base, and from there to the connected sound bar. Select music on the iPod in your hand, and enjoy it through the Samsung sound bar. It's just that simple.

Great Product!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this as a gift for my wife to go along with the sound bar we recently purchased. It works great and was nothing to set up. She thinks it's the best invention since the wheel!

Samsung iPod Dock

Written By RckyTp, Colorado on Sunday, July 24, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Easy to set up for use with Samsung Sound Bar. Very easy to use. Can control play-pause-stop, volume, skip, track choice, playlists, etc. from iPod as if you were using headphones. Takes advantage of great sound from sound bar and subwoofer. Was exactly what I was looking for.
