Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker (3 Units)
Delight your guests with these NFC-enabled premium portable speakers. Equipped with neodymium speakers, the Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker enables users to indulge in superior sound quality that boasts power and clarity. Ever wondered what it’s like to hear “Jingle Bells” with enhanced bass output? Now you can with the passive bass radiator, which tweaks the bass quality of the audio input as well as enhances the bass sound in smaller compounds and spaces! What’s more, users can also manually control bass effects at the touch of a button, should you want a more EDM feel to “Silent Night”.
These portable speakers are also built to be extra stylish, perfect to impress the hard-to-please in-laws. The White Silver colourway also complements the all-metal chassis that will fit right into any modern household. If you’re concerned that the speakers will be damaged over time, Samsung also packs each of these speakers with a woven textile cover.
Finally, there’s SoundShare, Samsung’s proprietary audio technology that automatically pairs and synchronises the device with a Samsung TV. If your TV’s built-in speakers are not cutting it for you, why not enhance your AV experience with the built-in 10W speakers on the DA-F61?

Samsung combined a premium mirrorless camera from the company’s NX family of cameras with a Samsung Galaxy S III, and the result is the Samsung Galaxy NX, the world’s first interchangeable lens mirrorless camera powered by Android with 4G LTE.

This Windows 8 tablet is clearly geared for productivity, with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 bundled in together with a detachable Bluetooth keyboard that also doubles up as a magnetic stand. Pair these features with the powerful yet economical hardware, and you’ve got quite an ideal companion device for those always on the go.
That’s not all. The ATIV Tab 3 also sports an integrated S Pen, allowing for more creative applications with the tablet. In addition, Windows 8’s impressive handwriting recognition features will pair perfectly with the S Pen, allowing power users to easily craft handwritten notes while on the go.
Finally, the ATIV Tab 3 also features one of Samsung’s best pieces of software to date: SideSync. This nifty feature allows ATIV Tab 3 owners to harmonise with other Android-based Samsung smartphones by simply connecting the two devices wirelessly or via USB cable.
