To date I have really only tested small portable Bluetooth speakers which in itself is fine and they all do a good job to be fair some obviously being better than others of course and not forgetting the price bracket but this is not always testament to quality some have been surprisingly better than others when it came to price… Again those have been portable,this one we have in is not so portable,in facts its huge so does it fair out when it comes to size?? You be the judge..
The box it came in was a giveaway from the off when it arrived and inside was packed well with plenty of corrugated cardboard to fit the piece snug inside as you would expect being so big also there was bubble wrap so for shipping purposes etc its well protected and arrived in one piece….. In the box aside from the gigantic subwoofer and satellite speakers is some cables and instructions and its a simple set up from here on in…
Rather good to be honest its tough and solid and looks well and not cheap,The woofer is a big solid block with a nice finish to it and the satellite speakers look great resting on circular platforms underneath which are slightly taller than the subwoofer itself due to their individual platforms… The stands are made from plastic with that aluminium look to them,Both these and the subwoofer is topped off with a nice cloth which does not seem cheap or easy to tear…
There is only one speaker here that does this which is the right one,there is a Blue indicator light on the front and they are marked Left and Right so you wont mix up the connections, On the back of the right speaker houses the headphone jack,bass and treble toggle and there is also a mute button and volume toggles pointing inward which are big and covered in rubber,they are easy to navigate…
Apart from the Bluetooth setup which is simply just like pairing any other bluetooth device we have some options provided on the rear along with the main power switch too which would have been better place atop particularly if you have it permanently fixed in your house wherever the location is… On the rear we have DUAL RCA inputs and 3.5mm to RCA cable supplied which is nice… Again the right speaker will screw into the R Speaker output and cable from the left obliviously on the left standard socket.. You can plug your phone or tablet in too via the 3.5mm cable..
Sound is great,its loud as you would expect,with the easy to configure controls on the right speaker you can quickly adjust to your specific taste it takes seconds to figure that out and you will be pleased with how it sounds overall its pretty good considered the price and the build quality throughout the entire product,listen to the sample below which I had to carefully select due to you tubes algorithms and silencing or removing videos due to copyright protection which is fair enough…
- Bluetooth audio input option for Bluetooth enabled devices
- Dual RCA inputs for connectivity to multiple audio sources
- 3.5mm headphone output port
- 61/2 inch bass driver, 70mm mid-range drivers, all magnetically shielded
- Separate bass and treble adjustment controls….
This costs around €60-70 euros,for the price you are paying it is a worthy package,well built and looks good, However consider its size 24.2 x 28.8 x 23.2 cm 6 Kg in weight. Its not something easy to move around like your portable speakers would be but again its not hard to move it either and the set up is so simple and not confusing,it will take some space but you can move the speakers about or even get extra long cables to enhance sound on a wider scale. For me its a good well built product and for the home it can be quite useful indeed with its connection types.
