Default YA-DS100 Speaker Docking Station

Yeah, the 2006 Z5 is not dead yet

Several ABI users wanted to get this speaker docking station at the time but it seems no one did because it was pretty rare, only available in a few countries including UK and Germany, and it was quite expensive (£59).

I personally did not even remember such a device had been released until I found it on ebay.de last month for €10. I bought it for my curiosity and collection

It's very hard to find real -not promotional- pics of this device so here you are (click to enlarge pics)



It's written in English AND French on the box but I'm not even sure it was available in France...







Samsung featured firmware 2.40 on a mini-CD as it is required to get the docking station work with the Z5.



AC Power adapter is included.



On promotional pics the station looks quite big but actually it is very small, only 21.5cm large.



Strangely this volume button doesn't replace/substitute for the Z5 volume button. That means that both of them control the volume at a different level and if you want to reach the max volume possible you have to use both of them.



With 2x 1W you can imagine that even at max level, it isn't very loud. Sound Quality is what you can expect from such a small device, nothing exciting.







You can either use the AC adapter or 3 x AA batteries.
The proprietary port is to connect it to computer.

Really?
From the point of view of Samsung, I fear that French is only spoken in France. They stopped selling MP3 players in Canada after the YP-P3 in 2009 (Galaxy Players excepted) and the situation is still worse in the other countries mentioned on Wikipedia.
