Azatom has carved out a strong position for itself in the UK market, delivering speaker docks that offer great value for money. The latest addition to their portfolio is the Azatom Home Hub, their first speaker with Lightning dock, supporting the latest iPhone, iPad, iPods, and iPad Mini.
The Azatom Home Hub Lightning has got a traditional bedroom/kitchen type design, square box with rounded corners, large digital display at the front (white light LED display with adjustable brightness), with the docking station itself situated at the top of the unit with a fold away design. Unlike many other Lightning enabled speaker docks at this size and price, the Home Hub also supports docking of iPad Mini and iPad 4, thanks to its unique cradle adapter supporting the larger size iPad when docked. The top of the unit also features standard button controls for volume, source control, play/pause, dual alarms, and a large snooze dimmer button.
Based on the buttons available you have probably figured out that the Azatom Home Hub is also an alarm speaker dock, offering up dual alarm functionality and automatic time syncing with docked device. You can choose alarm source as well between songs from your docked device, FM radio, or a default buzzer. Yes, the Home Hub has built in FM radio support, although no DAB/DAB+. There is also Bluetooth streaming included and 3.5mm aux input, allowing for a wide range of audio sources to be connected to the HomeHub,

With the Azatom Home Hub being set up as a versatile all-around-the-home system, it’s offering up a max power output of 30W, which is pretty good for a system this price and size. Speaker set up includes proprietary high density drivers with neodymium magnets, and dual bass ports to provide a better bass performance. I hope to be back with a hands-on review of audio performance in the near future.
The Azatom HomeHub is compatible with the following Apple devices: iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th gen, iPod Nano 7th gen, iPad Mini, and iPad 4.
