The Sampan Music Box is designed to transform music streaming devices such as Google's Chromecast Audio, the Amazon Echo Dot, and smartphones into powerful compact stereo music systems.  The design of the Sampan Music Box is inspired by our critically acclaimed Sampan loudspeaker. The Sampan Music Box uses two 3.5 inch full range drivers in two folded transmission lines and a 100 watt per channel stereo amplifier to produce accurate, room-filling, non-fatiguing music. 

With the advent of inexpensive high quality music streamers such as Google's Chromecast Audio, Amazon's Echo Dot and the emergence of the smart phone as a music hub, it is now easier and more convenient to listen to high quality music. However these compact streaming sources are usually matched with inadequate compact speakers that cannot realize their potential to reproduce high quality full-range stereophonic music. Therefore we designed the Sampan Music Box.

We made it great and simple.

You supply the source: a smart phone, Amazon Echo Dot, Chromecast Audio or Ruku Streamer. You can connect wirelessly by WiFi or Bluetooth adaptor or directly via a 3.5 connector on the front panel or RCA jacks on the back panel. The Sampan Music Box has only a volume/on-off knob and 3.5 mm input jack on the front panel and a pair RCA jacks and power input jack on the back panel. Plug in the power supply and connect it to a source and you are ready to enjoy room-filling, non-fatiguing music.

Typically a compact audiophile music system has a separate amp, two speakers, a sub on the floor and a tangle of wires connecting them. The Sampan Music Box incorporates all these elements in one slender cabinet that is 42 by 5 by 4.5 inches (107 by 13 by 12 cm) that may be placed on a desk, bookshelf, in a cabinet, or mounted on a wall. The interface is simplicity itself. Connect a source via a 3.5 mm input jack on the front or via a pair of RCA jacks on the back. That's it. One wire in for power, one wire in for source. No subwoofer is necessary with the Sampan Music Box's frequency response of 29 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
