Roberts Radio Blutune 50 DAB/DAB : Amazing sound quality from multi connecting device

My husband wanted a new alarm beside his bed but didn’t want the blaring sound that scares you awake, you press snooze wanting to feel the calmness again then repeat 3-4 times over and wake me in the process too. It wakes my husband with a slow volume rising sound which makes waking up that little bit more easier. You can set the radio to be on for a certain time then switch itself off or wake to the radio. The quality of sound is awesome.

When choosing to buy, i was a little troubled by those reviewers who criticised sound quality. Now, i don’t understand what they were on about. The sound quality is excellent for the price. I have a couple of wireless speakers, and the quality of the sound i’m getting from the roberts is just where i would expect it to be in comparison with them – one of them being more expensive, one cheaper. When you add in the things you’re getting over and above the wireless, this really is a very good value package which i thoroughly recommend. One unexpected bonus is that the range of dimming options includes an ultra-dim level. The only very minor quibble is that the sleep button is not easy to locate in the dark. That was easily fixed by putting a nipple of tape on the button top, but perhaps the designers could have built something in to address this.

2nd roberts radio i have bought, if this one continues to work for as long as the first (which i still use since 2011, has an apple dock on it, not this one). The device auto sets the clock, keeps track of my stations i set. Have not tried the bluetooth function, but when i do i will update this review.

Sounds great, easy to configure and dab sounds smooth and clear. It wakes you y slowly turning the volume up. Display has a dimmer function so you can set it’s brightness. My one and only criticism is that the 30 minute turn on timer function should have a raised surface. The amount of times i go to press it and turn the dimmer off annoys me. And, you can set it to 45, 60 or 90 minutes but it isn’t hard set so you have to choose how long you want it on for every time. Apart from that it is perfect.

  • Simply the best alarm clock I’ve ever / am ever likely to
  • Really Dim!
  • The set up is pretty straightforward as per manual except in a few places

  • 2.1 speaker system for high sound quality
  • USB socket for iPhone or smartphone charging

An excellent little dab bought for a kitchen where bluetooth connection wanted to enable connection to smart phone. Very easy to set up and use. Some have commented on the quality of the sound for talk radio, but i don’t think this an issue. It does sound different from an old fashioned single speaker lo fi radio but you soon get used to it and careful palcement makes a big difference.

Brilliant, ticks all the boxes for me when it comes to a radio alarm clock. Firstly it’s really easy to use, it has 2 alarms that can be set individually, everyday, weekday or weekend options, you can set the volume of the alarm independent of the volume the device was last used at. The alarms are humane, so that they start off quieter and increase to full volume, rather than rocketing you out of bed. By far though the biggest plus for me is the fact that the display can be dimmed right down, in the past i have always found alarm clock displays too bright even on their dimmest setting however the roberts blutune really is very dim on its lowest setting, perfect for me because i’m really sensitive to light at nighti’ve found the quality of the sound to be just fine but i am no expert, i’ve also had no issues with dab reception despite living in an area which is notorious for having a weaker signal. I’ve also found the bluetooth speaker feature really easy to use, with both my wife and myself able to easily stream music from our phones when we have wanted to.

Great radio and bluetooth speaker. It has to be plugged into the mains as there is no rechargeable battery. Pleased with my purchase and use it often. If looking for a device for traveling look for a rechargeable and long battery life.

Don’t be put off by reviewers who moan about sound quality or volume. It works beautifully, looks great and feels like quality. You can buy cheaper dab radios but not as well designed as this. I expect this to last 20years.

I bought this radio because of its specifications and sound quality and it does not disappoint in those departments. I love the fm/dab radio, the bluetooth and the usb connection. The sound is also excellent. I can also easily stream content from my android phone through the speakers of the blutune. Where this system falls down for me is in its usability. I bought this system for a bedside radio/alarm and i find it really difficult to navigate the buttons. The buttons are all clustered on top of the device and i often find myself fumbling to find what should be simple buttons such as the on/off, the function, alarm, etc. I have numerous times become very frustrated when trying to do simple tasks. The pre-set stations are also difficult to select with a number of steps required to say get to pre-set 6 on the system. The display is far too bright for night-time use however turning it down is again a hit and miss by trying to select the correct button.

A nice radio, but the tuning and presets are too complicated. Just, say, four proper presets would be fine. It’s not too bad on dab once set up, but one has to remember to press the tuning button to make the final selection. At least the station names are displayed though. Try to do the same on fm and one is presented with a list of frequencies. I only remember one or two, so the doesn’t help much. It does if you live in an area with poor signal strength and there are many of those, so fm is important. I agree with previous comments about too much bass in some circumstances. I built my own radio set at the age of 13 and have been in electronics all my life. In my opinion this set goes a long way , but is too complicated in some areas and misses important (simple) points in others.

The perfect solution to getting a good sound into our small kitchen. Sits comfortably on the windowsill yet packs a real punch with its subwoofer. We’ve had this for several months now using it every day and unfortunately the power adaptor went faulty – but within 24 hours we were delivered a brand new system. Full marks for amazon’s customer service.

It does the job of providing a dab radio for the morning while getting ready for work, but the sound quality just isn’t as good as i’d like it to be. The bass is so strong (and unadjustable) that when a radio presenter is talking they sound almost distorted – fine for music but not for talk shows. Pairs fine with our devices though, alarm works fine as well. Just was hoping for better sound quality for the asking price. Dab radio does provide great, clear reception though.

Over the last few years i have had several clock radios. The display is large enough to read easily and has several brightness levels including a very dim one for night time. For a clock radio the sound quality is excellent. It has several alarm modes including weekday and weekend and the audio wake up up function fades in gently. The functions are so logical to use that you will not need to refer to the handbook.

Slightly “boomy” sound which makes it sound a little hollow (i’d like more treble – why don’t dab radios have bass & treble controls??), but overall it’s ok. Easy to use and it keeps great time too, unlike several pure dab radios i have experienced, which are persistently a couple of minutes slow. You could do a lot worse for the price, and given a choice of this or a pure, this would win every time.

Nice quality, good looking radio / alarm – it’s very easy to set up & program. Unfortunately, its sound (when listening to classical music) is simply not up to usual roberts standard – though not overly unpleasant – it’s just a bit too bass-heavy and i haven’t been able to adjust it to my taste. Spoken voice is fine though. Other than that, it’s a very nice quality system with an effective (duel) alarm function that gradually increases in volume (up to your own pre-set maximum) so it wakes you gently. The backlight can be dimmed right down to an almost discernible level – for those who don’t like a bright display. To be honest, i’d give it another star if it weren’t for the high price and the heavy bass tone.

This is a really good bit of kit but being a bit picky i do have three niggles. 1, the aerial is one of these silly bits of wire. This looks really naff and for the price paid a proper aerial would be a big improvement. 2, it could do with some pips or ridges on one or two of the buttons to make them easily identifiable in the dark or when you are laid down and cannot see the top surface of the radio3, quote from another review:-‘the other issue is that sound is really good with deep bass; in fact i think the bass is a bit too heavy and i would have liked to reduce the bass and increase the treble. There is no adjustment for this; not even a simple ‘tone’ feature. ‘ i agree with this completely. So, overall it is very, very good, but the above items slightly niggle me. Lastly, i was originally surprised that there was no battery backup, but this seems to be unnecessary as the radio appears to remember all your settings, so if there is a power cut during the night, it should still wake you up in the morning. Also you can unplug and move it around the house without a problem.

Bought myself one of these for christmas (actually i asked my parents to buy me one but my dad couldn’t ‘work’ amazon, so i bought it for myself). Anyhoo, i’d read that some reviewers thought it was a little bass heavy which made listening to voice radio difficult. I listen to radio 4 from time to time and have had no difficulties with it. Music sounds fine too, it fills the bedroom and sounds rich. It has two alarms which are easy to set. It also has three different dimmer settings, the lowest of which is very dim which is good if you like your room nice and dark at night. This product looks good on my bedside table. I’m impressed with this product and am very pleased with it.

Bought for my teenage son – he loves it . Decent sound quality and small enough to fit on a window sill .

Excellent product but i would say it needed a bass adjustment as booms a little on hard surfaces.

Disliked buttons on top flush with casing which look good to the designer. What would be preferable; large, proud off/snooze buttons to make sleep easier for drowsier user.

This really is a fantastic radio with crystal clear reception. The controls are pretty self-explanatory. The bluetooth has to be heard to be believed. The sound fills the room,it may be a little bass heavy,but i like that (favourite radio station is planet rock). Classical music is quite clear,even in the quiet passages. All in all a fantastic machine,which i can recommend to anyone.

Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast YAS306 Soundbar – Awesome sounds.

Very impressed with this i know yamaha are known for music products and they dint diversify i can see why i compared this to a £2000 bose sound bar in the shop the yamaha was far better much cleaner bass and pure clarity what a bargain indeed. Some of the bose bars didn’t even allow to bluetooth your music from your ipad.

After a couple of weeks i am still only getting to grips with this fantastic yamaha sound bar. It is difficult to write a comprehensive review as it has so many features and functions that i cannot fully examine. It is versatile and it does everything required – and it does so brilliantly. There is nothing to be gained by repeating details of the technical specification, but i can confirm all associated items are provided, and to make things easy there is a quick start guide plus an owner’s guide on cd, and a musiccast setup. Operation is straightforward with bluetooth or the single cable connection to my tv, but additional input may be required for the full range of streaming and links to other devices. The yamaha sound bar has various indicators on the front, with jack points and connections all clearly available at the rear. It is attractively slim and there is a template and spacers for fixing to a wall. It is provided with an optical digital audio cable and a remote control. What i can fairly confirm is that sound quality is superb across a wide treble to bass range with addition of a bass extension and special adjustment for the subwoofer. It is readily switched between surround and stereo, and there is a voice key for clear reception, and an audio delay key for synchronizing sounds and images.

I love the concept of sound bars itself. Previous, also from yamaha brand, slightly bigger. The current one is sexier and more minimalistic, from the design perspective and i love it more. 1 simulation and it works well. My room is not square and yet i love the output of this device. Believe me or not, you can not even compare the sound you will get vs your tv speakers. No, you don’t have to be a hi-fi guy or lady. Here are the specifications for the Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast YAS306 Soundbar:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Incredible Sound quality from the world Largest Musical Instrument Manufacturer
  • Stream you entire Music Library, Spotify, Qobuz & more streaming services plus Internet Radio
  • Bluetooth & Airplay as standard plus support for Hi-Res Audio
  • Compatible with all Yamaha Music Cast items so expand your system and fill your house with crystal clear sound
  • Dolby Digital & DTS Surround supported

Sound quality is superband i use mostly wireless apple airplay for movies (no delay or sync issue) and wireless spotify connect for music and optical audio output for ps4.

Hooked up to my sub, sounds great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Simply Awesome Soundbar
  • Excellent sound quality
  • I love this thing. Great sound!

The sound bar a great all in one package. The bass is great for built in subwoofers. The general sound quality is great as well. The only downside is the simulated surround sound isn’t that amazing. But the overall package is still great.

It has taken me sometime to get round to review this. For one, i used to have the samsung crystal air sound bar system. Which anyone who has one, knows that it has an active sub wuffer. I was a little surprised when this one did not come with an hdmi connection port. But after configuring it to use the optical out (cable supplied), i realised just what a great move that was. It does not need one of the valuable hdmi connections on the tvthe sound is lovely. The surround effect is brilliant. The dynamic range, is lovely. If you haven’t guessed, i really, really like this sound bar. It fits nicely under the tv, and the supplied optical out makes it more than flexible enough to be moved to where you need it.

This is a quality sound bar i am very pleased with and like the idea of adding additional musiccast items in near future. Great sound and another top class product from yamaha.

Shipping was delayed but overall really good product.

I reviewed bose soundbars but they were quite expensive so i thought of ordering yamaha yas306 sound bar and take a risk – i must say, it exceeded my expectations – really great sound – deep base, very crisp and clear sound. It’s simply a great add on to your tv for much richer sound experience at such an affordable price. I am using it with sony 55 inch tv and it works like a magic and it fits nicely under the tv. I am now thinking of adding yamaha subwoofer as well to maximize the base and create a cenima like experience. Cons:only slight annoyance is that volume indication doesn’t come on the tv – so it’s difficult to know the current volume of the soundbar e. Is it on full or medium or how far can i go further etc. And finally, quick set up guide could be improved – as it took me few minutes to figure out on what to do for the set up. Overall great soundbar for a very reasonable price.

This is a quality soundbar which produces good audio. It’s quite chunky and has a bit of heft about it (at least partially due to the two built-in sub-woofers), but it sits comfortably in front of my tv. Set-up is very simple, just plug it in and connect the optical cable to your tv. Inputs for blu-ray/dvd players and so on are also included, although there’s no hdmi. The sound has good bass – made even better by the bass enhancement setting – adding real punch which soundbars can often lack. The surround sound is not great, it gives a bit more body to sound at the slight expense of some fidelity, but the surround aspect itself is questionable at best. Devices like this are never going to give you the performance of a 5. 1 system, but then their purpose is primarily to give you bang for your buck in a smaller footprint. The yas306 has plenty of volume and is very easy to get configured just how you like it.

Hq sound, the built-in sub-woofer is sufficient for a large living room and is a real space saver compared to other sound bar which have the sub woofer as a separate box.

Can’t see the volume level on the tv screen , which is a bit annoying got to listen how the sound changes instead of being able to just put the volume on certain level.

Very good look very good soundfor the money.

Absolutely love this product, the sound quality with the 2 inbuilt subwoofers and surround sound aspect is on another level. True cinema feeling right in your living room. The only downsides would be, it’s not foolproof and can be a bit difficult to set up, i’m 26 and shouldn’t really have any problems with modern technology, but it did take a little while to set up & i would like to add that i would prefer to keep it in front of the television, only because it is quite heavy. Overall, i’m very impressed with the soundbar & would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade.

Almost cinematic in it’s force and fidelity, this soundbar from yamaha packs a serious punch. The bluetooth is reliable too. In truth it’s probably a little more powerful than you need for home viewing. Perfect perhaps for a school or business.

Thanks 😁good end very fast delivery.

It is much more than just a soundbar, the yamaha yas306 is a complete streaming music speaker with class-leading connectivity. Air surround xtreme for immersive sound. Making this single soundbar sound more like a multi-speaker speaker pack, the yas306 features yamaha’s exclusive air surround xtremeusing 24khz hrtf (head related transfer function) technology it manages to clearly separate sounds from the front, rear and sides of you. 1-channel surround sound, without the need for extra speakers. Wowit has built-in subs for deeper bass. 5cm woofers either side of the soundbar, you’re guaranteed a rich, full-bodied sound that’s a great improvement on standard tv speakers. If you require an even deeper bass for that full cinema effect, a subwoofer output lets you connect up your choice of active sub. Musiccast for music all around your home. The yamaha yas306 is fully compatible with yamaha’s hugely impressive network audio system, musiccast. With musiccast you can control all your compatible yamaha musiccast products via your smartphone or tablet.

Bought this for our son after checking out reviews and pleased that he’s absolutely delighted with it.

Great bass and i love the surround setting, so many connection options. The infrared pass through for the tv remote is fantastic.I’ve set mine up so i can just use the tv remote to control both my tv and sound bar at the same time. I’ve tried several sound bars in the past and this is my favourite one piece. There is connection for an external subwoofer if required.

I have sonos playbase and this yamaha is butter than sound with great bluetooth.

Goes a bit tinny when at a high volume but i only payed about a tenner for it so i got the quality i payed for. Not a bad little speaker though.

Truly delighted with this product. Robust, great size, 100% quality and brilliant sound combine to make this a most amazing little wireless stereo. Just fantastic and, as for price, genuinely a bargain. Delivery also was first class.

Brought for my son’s birthday and it’s great. Arrived fast and was easy to use plus great in blue. Was surprised how load it was and bass doesn’t faultier.

Very good speaker 🔊 thank-you.

Great sound for such a small box. I was amazed at the detail and a very handy on/off switch at the back. Good delivery, great price fantastic product. Will recommend to friends and family.

Great sound for such a small device everything i was looking for, for my exam. Easy to use, make sure you charge it first doesn’t take long. Connects easily to your phone overall a good sound & no cracker long.

Bought for my son, he is really pleased. The sound is great, ideal for his bedroom and works perfectly with his iphone 5 and ipad. Excellent service, quick delivery, much faster than the time quoted.

I really do love the new hdmx bluetooth, i’ve been using it every day since i’ve had it and i love the hdmx.

Brilliant sound 🔊 for such a cheap speaker.

Good sound for the size and connects easily. Great buy for the price, very happy with my purchase.

Great little speaker , might order another for the beach.

The sound is good enough for the prise but the battery it doesn’t last long and you can’t see the percentage of it on the phone.

Very impressed with how good these are. And i’ve had friends comment on it, it looks good and it is practical to carry around the house. You can connect via bluetooth or through an aux cable. You get one with the speaker, a short one of about 10 cm, which works perfectly. The charger is a standard plug, the same as i use on my samsung phone and various other appliances i have, so i always have one at hand. I’m not really using the buttons on the top, apart from the volume one, so i don’t know how they work, but i will definitely recommend this speaker. In terms of the quality of sound, i have no clue. I’m too old to be able to tell the difference between hd and. Whatever the different sound quality names are. It is way better than just having sound coming straight from my phone, and i can hear it, and i can take it with me into whichever room in the house i am currently in.

Good sound as welland the price of 4 pound you can’t go wrong.

Very good value and does exactly what it says.

Brilliant sound fantastic product thanks soooooo pleased xxxxx.

This dinky speaker sounds amazing when connected with samsung s5 mini. Sounds great in the bathroom while in the showernot the speaker (dummy).

Great little gadget arrived quickly, thanks.

I seem to be collecting bluetooth speakers – they are so useful in lots of situations. I have one in the kitchen, for when i’m forced to cook. I have a waterproof one in the bathroom, for my adele renditions. I have one in my car, for impromptu picnic outings. And i have one in my girlfriend’s ‘changing room’, so she keeps ‘beliebing’ in her own space. I had the chance to review this product at a discount, in exchange for this honest and unbiased review. I’ve used a fair few bluetooth speakers recently, so was happy to use my ever growing experience and wisdom on the topic, to try out this one – the t2 portable by 01 audio. I’ve used 01 audio products before, and they’ve previously been good quality – i’m happy to say that this product was also surprisingly good, and would happily use 01 audio products again. The speaker itself looks great. A similar size and shape to the ue boom, the classic cylindrical tower.

OCOMI Bluetooth Speakers Wireless Speakers Waterproof Outdoor Speaker TF Card Enabled – Great little speaker

I brought this product based on the average customer reviews i’ve seen on here. Delivery was quick with prime as i wanted it to take on holiday with me a few days after ordering. The sound it puts out is crystal clear and the bass is shockingly good for a small speaker. It hasn’t distorted at high volumes and produced brilliant sound at high volumes too. Which is high enough to here from a good distance away. The bluetooth connection is fantastic. I’ve walked quite far and it’s still connected and played as if i was sat next to it. I’ve been abroad for 7 days and only had to charge it once and that was only because it had lost 1 light of the 3 😂 not because the battery had died. The only con i can think is when i first had it i wasn’t sure of how to turn the volume up, whether i had to press the + or hold it down.

For a little speaker it packs a punch and has great sound quality.

Great sound but the skip track and volume controls are the same buttons. You have to hold down each one to alter volume, and press once to skip track. Not that intuitive but i cant argue because sound quality is great and its so cheap and looks really cool.

Good sound, volume/ skip track button is a bit bit fiddly as you end up skipping instead of increasing volume but for the size it’s a great sound.

  • Amazing
  • Great sound but the skip track and volume controls are

KitSound Mini Buddy Small and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker : Brilliant!

Brought this for my sister who has an obsession with penguins, she was really happy with the product.

I have got one of this for myself and them bought another character version for my husband. It is really good to use within the computer.

This is a very good little speaker. Excellent sound, but so cheap. Ideal for taking on holidays etc. Cheap enough that you could take it to the beach /picnic/wherever without worrying about it.

Bought for my daughter and i had a little play with it first. A well thought out size, connection, usb charger, no batteries and a terrific sound. I compare to the speakers on the sony sp phone and ixos cube bought years ago. Note: there was a reviewer who said there was no lead to charge it with – inside the packaging there is a usb lead inside the cardboard base at the bottom. Its all there just as the product is described.

Bought so i could listen to music on my phone in my car after my car radio packed in. I recharge it by plugging it into the computer. Looks really cute in my car as well and has received a lot of attention.

KitSound Mini Buddy Small and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker with USB Charging Cable Compatible with iPhone, Samsung and Android devices : I bought a kitsound mini buddy speaker and i lost the charger. I know that it is has a usb on it but i don’t know the measurement for the jack. Could somebody be kind enough to tell me :).

For a small speaker i think it’s great, it stays charged for ages, the key ring on its handy too a*.

Bought this as a stocking filler for christmas it’s so cute and the sound is brilliant. Not sure how well it works as a key ring but as a speaker they are great. Love the fact you can join a few together.

For the size the sound quality is excellent. Also came well protected and within a couple of days of ordering.

I gave these as christmas gifts to kids from 7 to 11, boys and girls, and they all loved them. They have a darling range of animals. They deliver good sound, though not powerful enough to disturb other members of the household.

Really cute, glad i purchased this. On a full charge it gets through a full day of listening before needing to be plugged in. The sound produced isn’t going to satisfy an audiophile, but is perfectly good enough to make the iphone (and ipad) speakers sound a little better when a proper dock or speakers aren’t an option. Delivers remarkable volume for something so small.

This little penguin arrives safely packaged and on time. It is so cute and when connected to an ipod plays amazingly clearly and at high volume also produces a good sound. I really am surprised at the quality and would recommend to anyone wanting a small gift with big impact.

It arrived on time, and for such a small speaker, it definitely packs a punch. It is really loud and clear, and i love it. I am thinking of buy some more for my friends.

Its a must biy for phones or kindles or ip ads. U get different colours and animals.

I bought this for my son for christmas. Amazed by the volume and the quality of sound from such a small and cute speaker. If you are thinking of buying one, hesitate no further.I love the idea of connecting more than one together.

I was really surprised how good the sound were for the price i payed, i mean i thought i was about to get ripped or something and thought ‘something like this would increase the sound just a little bit without sounding terrible’ but i were wrong. Great sound thinking the size and the price. Well recommended for anyone who wants to share the sound on the phone higher than speakers can do without making a hell of a party.

Came before it’s estimated delivery date and as described in the selling information. I would recommend this speaker to buy, it is small and very surprisingly throws out a great high and clear sound from such a small device.

I bought this as a christmas present for my penguin loving girlfriend. It works well, looks cute – and sounded surprisingly good and loud on her iphone.

I’ve given this product 5 stars as i was so surprised by its quality for its price. I was dubious about buying a speaker for my iphone that wasn’t apple but this is great and fits into my handbag easily. It also comes with a usb charging cable which is great. Would definitely recommend to other people.

Great sound for such a small item. Its so cute and easy to pop in your bag or car. Provided plenty of sound for beach picnic.

I bought this a while ago and at first it was brilliant, i loved the design and the sound was reasonable for such a small speaker. Just recently though it has begun to sound as though it is under water, and it has not been dropped or anything to break it. It is a shame as i do really like it.

Audio Pro Addon C5 Wireless Bluetooth Smart Speaker, Brilliant Speaker

First impression of the c5 black is that it comes from an army surplus store. Setting up is simple even though the instructions are a little ambiguous. The sound quality is excellent for the price, although a bit heavy on the bass. Treble and bass can be adjusted though the app and with a bung in the rear port if necessary. Compared with other wireless speakers in the same price range, the audio pro c5 is worth the money. The sound quality and ease of use are excellent. Had a firmware update on second use. Buy with confidence, you won’t be disappointed.

I bought this for my dad but wanted to set it up before giving to him, now i want onei hadn’t seen one in the flesh or heard one as they are very hard to find in stock so i took a chance and based my purchase on reviews from what hifi and other audio pro reviews on amazon. First of all it looks fantastic, the whole thing is very high quality, the beautifully crafted leather handle sets off perfectly against the gold control panel and the grey finishes it all off perfectly. Fortunately the sound quality matches the looks, it sounds incredible for such a small unit. Sounds good at all volume levels with no noticeable distortion at the highest level and also importantly it has a lovely rounded sound which doesn’t fatigue you after extended listening. Set up was pretty straightforward and once you have had a play with the app to work out all the functions it it is very easy to control. Wifi performs very well, it is currently placed at the furthest point from the router(40 feet) with a couple of walls in between, signal shows as 40% but i have not experienced any drop out at all so not planning to use the ethernet port. Access and control of spotify and tunein is easy and intuitive although the amount of radio stations and podcasts to chose from is quite bewildering to start with, fortunately you can add your favourites and also save them to the 4 preset that can be accessed from the device or the app so once set up it is easy to find what you want. The only down side was that the product which was bought from amazon uk but was shipped from amazon eu and came with european power leads only. All credit to amazon who sorted it out very quickly(as they always do)in summary if you want a stylish retro look with fantastic sound quality you can’t go wrong, relatively expensive but worth every penny.

Great sound, lovely design, easy peasy to use.

Comments from buyers

“Wish it was for me!
, Looks aren’t everything.
, A great recommendation

Bought because it is a what hifi category winnerthis is not the most attractive box you will ever see (a cause for frequent comments) however, that is the only negative point about this item. Up close the build quality is impressive. I like the metal control panel on the top surface, it looks and feels great. It is also easy to paid with a blue tooth unit (in this case my android phone). I like that it is available on my wifi network for other sources (like my laptop) and can take rca inputs as well. I am using an old creative zen mp3 player though it as well. So it looks good and gives you multiple options to connect to it – but what does it sound like?. It has been a real pleasure to rediscover my music on a speaker that reproduces it beautifully. Yes it is expensive – but if you like to hear the detail in your music reproduced with great tone it is worth every penny.

This is a great stylish wireless speaker, small but capable of filling a small to medium room.

Received as a birthday gift and couldn’t be happier. Much smaller than i anticipated but the sound produced really does belie this little box’s diminutive proportions. While the bass couldn’t be described as thundering it does a good job of filling our fairly large lounge with music up to reasonably loud levels – acoustic genres in particular really shine, with crisp mids and nuanced treble that doesn’t fatigue the ears with prolonged listening. The stereo image is more directional than theatrical, but that’s a given with any speaker system of this size. You need to download the app to join the speaker to your network, but other than that i don’t really use it – opting instead for ios native airplay to allow multi-room integration with other (non audio pro) airplay speakers via rouge amoeba’s airfoil software running on a mac. Having used the speaker solidly now for a couple of weeks i would wholeheartedly reccomend to anyone looking for a discrete and classy solution to wireless music in anything other than the largest of rooms.

Looks beautiful, sounds good just a very long process to connect to the device.

Full rich sound in a very portable speaker.

Only functions plugged to mains but fantastic value for money vs sound quality.

Read the whathifi review of the addon c5 in the morning, and the speaker arrived in the evening. The sound quality is sensational for a speaker of this price. Such clear definition within the sound, the separation and balance between instruments is extraordinary, and it is just so confident in its delivery. Combine this with the flexibility of having so many different inputs and you have a sonos killer in my opinion. Airplay and inbuilt radio working like an dream, and though not immediately accessible, in-app alexa is a fun addition. Will no doubt try the multi-room at some point because i don’t think i’ll be able to stop at just one.

Really great sounding speaker. I already have one of the older t9 speakers which i have linked up to this speaker with a link 1 wifi adapter sold by audio pro. I love that it has 4 presets so you can set your favourite stations. The sound from these speakers is very full bodied,you can alter the treble and bass from within the audio pro app which i’ve found easy to use. There’s no distortion when playing at max volume which is very loud. Speaker looks great and is well made. I thoroughly recommend this speaker i’ve had my t9 for 18 months and love that one too. Update: remember when setting up to open audio pro app go into speaker then info and check the box for unit password and add a password ,otherwise you will leave an open wi-fi link to your home network.

Actually made my wife tear up.

Phenomenal sound quality from this tightly put together package. The speaker can be used with any of the popular streaming services but sounds particularly impressive when used with a tidal account. Music can be streamed directly to the speaker using the audio pro app or you can use spotify connect, google chromecast (seperate addition) or rca/aux in. The speaker can process and output 24bit hi-fi music. The speaker has 4 useful presets onto that can be quickly assigned to a favorite playlist, radio station, album, artist etc so you have instant music at the tap of a button. I will be using my speaker with a chromecast audio in conjunction with a google home mini to provide music on demand to my kitchen. Eventually the system will be expanded out to other audio pro speakers in the house.

This is an excellent wireless speaker system, given its size, specification and price, i was very surprised at how well it performs. Initially i had a few slight niggles setting things up, the control app isn’t that great but it does what it needs to, once everything is up and running you will likely find that you don’t need the control app on a day to day basis. The first steps are very straight forward and i had it connecting to my wifi network within a couple of minutes, i had music soon after playing from spotify on a macbook pro. By looking through the settings i soon realised the device needed a firmware update, this failed a couple of times so i tried again after hooking up to the router with an ethernet cable, firmware quickly updated this time (either the control app or the quick start guide should probably contain at least a couple of sentences about this). The firmware update resolved one little problem i had spotted – the device was switching itself off after 30 minutes, despite my attempt to turn off the sleep timer within the app, the off setting didn’t seem to take but after the firmware update all worked correctly. Although i only have one of these audio pro speakers i would imagine multi-room setup would be very straight forward. I have been using the speaker with spotify (premium 320kb mp3) and qobuz (hifi lossless flac) from 2 ipads, an iphone and a macbook pro, tested using airplay and spotify connect. It has a very pleasing sound quality, very listenable and musical, detailed and punchy with a surprisingly solid bass. I found that the bass can sometimes be a little boomy and overblown, if the device is placed on a cupboard for example you could get a lot of boom at higher volumes which would muddy the sound a lot. Placed on a table with the bass turned down a notch evens things up.

Intend to use it as standalone for now with spotify. Would not connect to my wifi network until i plugged it in via cable and then it all worked seamlessly.

Very good speaker, great sound. Was an issue as it didn’t arrive with a uk power lead. Amazon sorted quickly, very happy with the service.

I’ve only had this speaker for two days and i already love it. The sound is something really special (and i think that it looks great). It did arrive without a uk plug but amazon have been very reponsive and sorted this out. The four pre-set buttons are easy to use. I’ve set one to radio 4 via tunein and another to my favourite classical mix on spotify premium so i can turn on the speaker and just press a pre-set button. Alternatively i can use the audio pro app to select music or simply use spofify connect, all these options are delivered straight over my wifi. Alternatively i can use voice control on my amazon echo dot to select something and then have it played by this speaker via bluetooth from the dot. I have not tried the line in option yet. I’m delighted with all this.

Bought to replace a philips ds9000 30 pin ipod dock speaker and this is far superior. Bought because it’s recommended in what hifi 2018 annual awards and for the connectivity – wifi, bluetooth, i can also connect my apple universal dock (lead required) and my sl1200 (preamp required) as it has rca connection. The app – others have grumbled about the control app but i think it’s pretty straight forward and easy to use. The sound – crisp, clear and punchy – great detail, i am really pleased with it and can’t recommend highly enough. *updateremember that all speakers need a few plays to run in and my c5 is sounding better and better with each play. The clarity & detail are fantastic on a speaker at this price.

Great sound, issue with bluetooth and iphones. Had to keep resetting the thing by turning it on and off when i’d paused the iphone. Sad, as the sound was great.

The online tech expert reviews are right – this is a stunningly good device – with one of these and a smartphone the audio world is literally at your fingertips with superb qualityand it’s refreshingly simple/easy to set up. Within minutes of opening the box the wifi is up and running, spotify tunes are playing, the bluetooth pairing is done, internet radio stations playing, and a firmware upgrade completed. Looking at its face-like front now i’m half imagining i can see the curve of a discreet smile beneath its central mouth speaker.

Bought two to pair as l and r in kitchen diner. Sound far bigger than they are, more than loud enough for a large room. Sound good at low volumes you dont have to crank them too loud to appreciate them. Slightly bass heavy out of the box but can be adjusted along with treble within app. App is a little sticky and slow but its worth the wait. Highly recommended for the price.

Small speaker with a big sound. Absolute quality from a brand i ve never heard of before.

This speaker is just brilliant in every way. Great sound quality, easy to connect to devices and very light.

Apart from the annoyance of this device arriving with two (2) euro power cables. Why?it is an awesome speaker. Cannibalised a lead from an old dab radio, bluetooth connection in less than a minute (like the little book says) and away we go. Have given it a proper test run now with the obligatory ‘charly’ by the prodigy to see how it handles bass and then a fun run through metallica, foo fighters, tcv, qotsa and all my other faves. Not sure about the reaction times and how it ‘forgets’ devices quite quickly but for the sound quality alone i am well chuffed.

Monitor Audio MR4 Speakers, They may be “entry level” but the sound is amazing for this size and price

So happy with the quality of sound especially as part of surround sound.

I have waited till i completed the burn in time for these speakers (100 hours i believe) before commenting on them. Before i start i have to say that everybody hears differently, has diff equipment, room shapes etc so this is from my own perspective :)wow. I have a pretty symmetrical room and the stereo image that i am getting from these speakers is mind blowing, bass is on point, trebles not harsh infact cymbals sound a tad more lifelike. They not power hungry either, i am using a cambridge audio azur 640a (65w) and have no need to go over the 9pm position on the volume knob. I personally would tell anyone to buy these, they sound imo superb :).

I own monitor audio bx5 bronze, which is an older version of mr4, and look almost identical. They may be ‘entry level’ but the sound is amazing for this size and price. They are probably amongst the best and most versatile entry level floorstanders. I am using them with an nad c326 amplifier.

Comments from buyers

“Great speakers for the price.
, As good as the bronze speakers to my ears.
, Excellent Speakers

Initial impressions upon unpacking were excellent. Very good looking speakers with excellent build quality. Even my wife, who had staunchly advocated against floor standers due aesthetics, grudgingly agreed they are indeed nice additions to the lounge. Dialogue in movies is good but for a complete and accurate evaluation i will need to hook remaining speakers in 5. 1 setup (bookshelf, centre and woofer). Had these speakers for more than 2 years now and loving them. I really think these speakers can hold their own with more expensive speakers (in a medium/large size environment – 4mx6m). The wife loves these and is now a firm believer of floor standers.

I’ve owned the bx2’s for about 3 years now and have been very happy with them. I purchased these along with a centre speaker from monitor audio to create a 5. 1 system for our small cinema room. I would honesty say that they provide pretty much the same sound quality as the bronze speakers. Side by side i can’t really tell much difference. They are solid, come with floor spikes in the box. The highs, mid and bass are great for both movies and music from hi res files and vinyl. I honestly can’t believe how good a deal these are for such quality speakers.

It may be classed as ‘entry level’ for monitor audio but it is so far exceeding my expectations. The items are solid lumps, very well made. What i didn’t see on the reviews or description, the speakers come with a set of 8 floor spikes, and since it is front and rear ported they also include 2 foam stoppers to plug the rear port if you are situating them near a wall.

Marshall 3.5 mm Acton Speaker with 4.0 Bluetooth – Cream (EU) : Looks good and sounds great

Bought as a christmas present to use with record player.

I use it for playing music in the kitchen and also connect it to the tv to enhance the sound.

Sound is great, looks great but the bluetooth connectivity is not so good. Usually takes two or three attempts to link to source. Worth the effort though as the it does sound great. Plenty of bottom end and loud enough for most domestic use imo.

Very nice sound , best quality for the prize and looks so nice on the desk .

  • Love it!! Incredible sound and bass
  • Sound is great, looks great but the bluetooth connectivity is not
  • Looks good and sounds great

  • Bluetooth connectivity – Stream music directly from your smartphone, tablet or computer, no wires involved. Or use the included 3.5mm input and cable

Fantastic sound would highly recommend. But come without a 3 pin plug.

Bought as a birthday present for my son. Sounds great indoors and outside. Good to have a wired connection with iphone and laptop sources.

This is the most amazing speaker and has the best sound quality with the added benefit of being able to adjust the treble and bass. . I havent even had a chance to get the volume over half way as its so loud which i absolutely love. The style and design is retro (i got the cream one) and incredibly high quality and an absolute steal at 145quid – love this speaker even if my neighbours hate me now. You will not be disappointed 😊😊.

Excellent sounding speakerdropped a star as arrived with type c european plug, hence had to seek an adapter – not so good when given as a present.

My only issue is that it came with a us plug. I had to buy a us to uk adapter and it sounds great but it would be worth letting people know that they would need an adapter.

KitSound Flair Universal Rechargeable Wireless Portable Speaker : Good build quality

Sound quality is very nice max volume is very good if you are using it inside like the kitchen or bedroom, however if using it outside like around a campsite at a festival (which is why i bought it) then max volume is surprisingly quiet in comparison. Battery life lasts about an hour and half on max volume.

Wanted something that was modern and would look nice in my living room so that’s the main reason i bought it, wasn’t really expecting it to sound so good too, nice punchy bass, would definitely recommend.

Considering this item was 89% off at the time of placing this order i am amazed. The sound quality is great as ive come to expect from previous kit sound products ive owned. I will be ordering more now that they are somehow 94% off.

This is a good sturdy unit with relatively good sound quality unfortunately the bluetooth did not work on my unit hence the ratings.

  • sound quality is very nice max volume is very good if you are using
  • Good build quality
  • amazing
