This is nothing more than one more instance of contemporary retro-nostalgia, or should I say techno-nostalgia.
Just like comeback of vinyl records, cassete tapes, vintage audio and photographic equipment, so they want to reproduce cult status of power-inefficient but acoustically superb vacuum tube amplifiers (although it's probably not amplifier but preamplifier on tubes, beacuse it would require at least 10 gigantic tubes per channel and aproximately 100 kg worth of amplifier to achieve declared power output of 100 watts.
And one more thing: vacuum tube audio technology produces "warmer" and "musical" sound only when it comes to cheap amplifiers. True high-end audio based on vacuum tubes delivers transparent, neutral and "tasteless" sound, which is in fact what true audiphile wants.
So, in other words, Samsung is trying to make money on every sucker who thinks he will benefit from this by stealing the design of Apple HIFI iPod dock and using so-called auidophile technology. Sammy's not first. In fact, there were hundreds of those products for iPod/iPhone in the last 5 years or so...

I will benefit from this design. I'm not concerned about super high-quality audio that caresses my eardrums (I have a $2500 system for that), but this wireless unit looks awesome. I'd buy it simply because of the design.

Well, if you are true audiophile, you most probably love mahagony finish. That's why they implemented it. Exactly for those like you. They wanted complete design story of HIFI (not substance though). It's your choice, and your financial capacity to be ripped off, right?
