Pah-tooey! </strong><br />Are you going to clean that up? Because it&rsquo;s not our job to scrape your prejudicial sputum off the deck. And there are several reasons why the T7 Bluetooth speaker deserves more respect. For one, it&rsquo;s made by British hi-fi superstars Bowers &amp; Wilkins, AKA &lsquo;B&amp;W&rsquo;. For two, there are several very good AirPlay speakers in its showroom already, including the iconic Zeppelin speaker. And, for three, the T7&rsquo;s got some see-though bits and we bladdy love those.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>See-through? I finger my snook and say this to you: &ldquo;&#39;Tis a gimmick.&rdquo; </strong><br />Well, B&amp;W says that the honeycomb structure is designed to minimise cabinet resonance, giving this handbag-sized speaker clean sound right up to its higher volume levels. Ditto the soft-touch rubber enclosure that surrounds it, and likewise the twin bass radiators, surrounded as they are by two 50mm drivers. The T7 has sufficient heft to it &ndash; 40g shy of a full kilogram &ndash; to make you believe that it might be capable of some notable bass action. One thing we do know: the T7&rsquo;s hexagonal halo reflects light in an intriguing way and the whole thing looks, feels and smells like quality.</p> <p><strong>Wait, what?

So we did some calculations, and on paper it looked like we could go loud enough and get the quality.</p> <p>We tested the Sound System in a massive warehouse, a development space next to our factory. Everybody heard it. It was rattling cutlery in the kitchen. There were some predictions saying it wouldn&#39;t go loud enough, or would blow up!

The charging area makes up a full third of the Glowdeck&#39;s top surface, and if your phone&#39;s connected to the dock over Bluetooth 4.0, it&#39;ll alert the Glowdeck to stop charging when your battery reaches 100 per cent, topping it off if it drops below full charge. That means your battery life should be extended, since the dock isn&#39;t continuously transmitting power to it. It also sports a pair of USB ports, for those who aren&#39;t blessed with Qi charging smarts.</p> <p>Oh, and it glows.</p> <p><strong>It&hellip; glows. </strong><br />Yes. Like a Max Power reader&#39;s car.
