The latest speaker from Edifier the M230/MP230 may look old, indeed it is a throwback to 50s and 60s with a wooden finish that looks really cool and not only that the finish is robust and clean and it is in fact made with MDF. At first glance you may also notice the keys are again a throwback with a piano key design which works really well and once more these keys work flawlessly and look cool.
I have a house full of speakers and a surround system but since this little speaker came into the house everyone will not leave it alone, they pick it up ask me about it then I tell them and once the sound is turned on they are amazed at the punch it gives and in short for now has made my more expensive home set-up redundant. Most of my friends and family are not really tech adopters that is until they come into my place and this little speaker has garnered more attention than anything else here that is worth ten times the value so this for me makes an interesting point.
Retro products have been on the comeback for years and there is plenty out there but having said that most is cheap tacky looking stuff made with plastic and stickers whereas this aint it is a superbly built and finished product with all the features you require in a speaker.
On the rear of the speaker is the ports and not only that it can take and SD card too so if you have one with music on it you are laughing, I do but also use my phone to connect via bluetooth and the sound is just the same and when it comes to sound prepare to be amazed. For those who enjoy speakers some will know how a product is finished and the materials it is made from does make a difference.
The keys on the front are a joy to use where you have all your controls simply laid out, you can play/pause skip/reverse tracks here and swap modes and also take your calls on it if you desire to do so.
When it comes to sound it sounds great cutting it short the bass is excellent so for bass fans this is for you, highs lows and mids are there and for all music genres this covers it all and the sound is not confined to one spot like some speakers it circulates a large area and easily fills a large room and is ideal for your back garden or bringing to a picnic for example you will not be disappointed either way on the audio experience
