Yamaha NX50 Powered Speakers – Small size, large sound

These speakers are brilliant, the price and lack of extra wiring due to it not having a subwoofer is great, i was pleasantly surprised when i heard the quality of the audio, i would highly recommend to anyone who wants a small but decent sound system that doesn’t take up much space, for whatever system they use at home or even at the office.

Very pleased with these little speakers so far. Lovely warm sound and quite powerful, excellent base for the size.

Bought this when it was about £50, which is how i’ll review it – for the higher price, i wouldn’t be so sure. But at the price i purchased it – what a fantastic bit of kit. Of course, it’s made in china, but the build quality seems solid. I do appreciate the dual inputs, the small size, and large sound. I actually had a visitor look down the back of the sofa for the subwoofer, because he thought i was taking the piss when i said there was none. Highly recommended if you can get them at a good pricethe power adapter is wall-wart europlug with a uk adapter included.

  • Amazing Value For Money
  • Very, very pleased!
  • These speakers are truly exceptional for their size. Sparking

Love these speakers sound superb and look great, great service as well.

These are fantactic pc speakers.

We bought a set of these speakers around 5 years ago to use with a new sony television in the bedroom. They were white (to match the telly) and were over £100. The improvement in the sound quality, however, was worth every penny. We now have a static caravan and the television we have there was connected to a small hi-if system to improve the sound quality. Which it does, i have to say, but there is a volume limit on the system which makes it difficult for my somewhat deaf husband to hear some of the programmes (not the adverts, mind you. After all these years the commercial stations still insist on blasting our ears with the adverts while the programme is virtually inaudible) also, i was fed up with missing bits of programmes while relating the details of the previous 5 minutes to hubby. So i suggested that we invest in some proper speakers. I did my usual search on amazon and found the exact same yamaha speakers we have in the bedroom.

These speakers are truly exceptional for their size. These speakers are truly exceptional for their size. Sparking treble, level midrange and astonishing bass. They wipe the floor with all competitors.

Best you can get for this size and money. Ive always used yamaha speakers and these do not dissappoint. They are amazingly clear and detailed, so good in fact i use them to make music with ableton live, ive had people ask me if i have a separate subwoofer connected. For a 3′ driver this is incredible, they are built to last and are rock solid. Way better than my old bose pc speakers that lasted only 12 monthsjust buy them you will love them like i do.

Love these speakers sound superb and look great, great service as well.

Best speakers i’ve owned, tops that of the b&w zepplin i have. Even though this set does not have a subwoofer, it still keeps up with the bass output. These are probably the best speakers i’ve owned, these even make the bower & wilkens zepplin i have in the living room sound bad. I was concerned at first regarding the auto-standby feature that they have; my previous speakers had this and it made an awful pop when turning back on – these speakers are ready to go from the first bit of sound that hits them. Couldn’t recommend them though. My partner has also order the orange set for her pc to replace the 2. 1 logitech set she currently has. I use these speakers for:>listening to music – anything from eminem, lindemann, to the bloody beetroots, it all sounds amazing. >gaming – mad max, vermintide, left 4 dead, guild wars 2, undertale. >movies(so pretty much everything).

Sonos like quality at a fraction of the price. . Not the prettiest of boxes, a three for aesthetics at best. For desktop footprint, sound quality and volume, ease of use, etc. My ideal solution to sound for my pc would have been to plug into the play-1 in my study, only sonos doesn’t think i deserve an auxiliary input for my £170. For the £60 (yes the silver facia was half the price of say black) i paid i would say these two are comparable to the sonos in terms of build and sound quality.

Typical high quality yamaha product. Was looking to replace my damaged dell subwoofer and speakers to work with my imac and noticed the description of these as being computer speakers from the search. Unlike the review below, yamaha’s reputation being tested, i was always confident in this brand as always producing high quality sound products. These were the perfect size for me and available in silver and black to match the imac. The set-up, straight forward and once turned on the rich sound is immediately evident. Not out and out bass rich, but crisp and sharp round sound with ample bass. If your looking for computer speakers at a reasonable price for the high standard of quality in terms of build and sound, you need not look any further.

Comments from buyers

“Fantastic sound and looks, As good as the old dentons & lintons, Excellent for their size and price”

Pro’s+ cheap+ sound great, especially mids and highs – they sound better than any active speakers for this price+ look really nice especially with the dust covers off. Dust covers are easy to on/offcons- they are passive speakers: this means you need a amp (between 25 – 75w) and speaker cable, the wiring is extremely easy. I use a pyle home pcau33 2x75w amp and they sound great. Active speakers require no amp as they are built into the speakers. Really expensive active speakers sound better than passive speakers (like these) as the inbuilt amp(s) are made specifically for each speaker driver for the best sound, for around this price (£90 at time of review) however, you will only find active speakers which are ‘powered’ these sound worse than passive speakers as they only have one cheap amp for every speaker driver inside each speaker. Look for ‘true active’ speakers for that better sound (can cost a ton though). – lack bass, but i knew this when i bought them and use them with a sub. I would say don’t buy these speakers if you listen to bass heavy music (dubstep, drub and bass, house etc. ) unless you have a sub woofer like i do.

Excellent, solid heavyweight speakers, great reproduction across the full range. Excellent at the original proce, better still with the discount for ‘old’ kit.

Small, cheap, and very capable. I got these speakers to actually use in my computer desk, as i’ve found (cheap and more expensive) computer speakers to be lacking for any serious listening. My expectations: 1) real hi-fi sound. 2) small speakers, to sit on a desk without any problems. 4) good quality 5) cheapi must say they fill the requirements without problems. 1 – the sound is clean and crisp, can be driven from a small t-amp (15w) or a bigger one (using a nad316 they fill an avg. 2 – at 15x15cm, these are among the most compact you can get. 3 – great bass for a 10cm/4′ woofer – it’s not earth-shattering, subwoofer-like deep bass, but it’s quite nice and clear. Finding such small speakers (really) capable of 55hz isn’t an easy task. 4 – from packing to looks to finish they mean business – very good overall quality. 5 – for the size, there aren’t that many capable speakers in this price range. Other thoughts: these are probably originally meant to be used as satellite speakers, for which they may also be great. 8)without any subjective listening experience or taste, the only rate i can give them is 5*.

Excellent for their size and price. My amp drives two pairs of speakers, so i could compare these against a more expensive and much larger, but older, pair of floor-standing yamahas (ns-45e). By choosing the right music, and concentrating, i can find a difference, but it’s very small. These are ideal for extending my hi-fi to cover my computer desk, where i play classical and mor music at moderate to low volumes. I have them on full-size atacama stands, because they replace a pair of jpw ap3s (rubber around bass driver dozed). They look a bit overwhelmed there, but i no longer need to worry about knocking them over by accident. Delivered promptly in a very manageable package, too, so it was easy to take home and didn’t cause comment when it arrived at work.

Wonderful performance, enhanced by being placed on stands.

Great performance as rear speakers in my surround sound set up.

Super quick delivery and great-sounding speakers with my cambridge azur 640a amp and sonos.

As good as the old dentons & lintons. I bought these speakers after looking for something as good as the the old dentons and lintons i owned many years ago. In the meantime i had listened through missions,bose & surround sound systems but wanted to return to a sound that was more true to how alot of music was meant to be heard when it was originaly created when mixed. After looking at old speakers on ebay with the prospect of replacing thr drivers and tarting them up etc i decided to give these a go when i spotted a ex dem pair for £ 89. Well how suprised was i to hear them give me exactly what i wanted : compact size with a big bass warm sound. I havnt had time yet to wire them up with top quality cables yet but they sound great with just cheap copper cable. Im using an old technics amp to drive them which i think helps but i think they will sound good with any medium priced amp. Speaker placement is always important and these have a hole in the back which pumps out a force ten gale so dont put them against a wall or they wont work as intended. Great small speakers buy em now.

I wanted to buy some beefier speakers to replace the front left and right speakers in my 5. 1 system and so i took a punt on buying these, assuming they would be better than what i originally had. I am so pleased i did as they they are a great pair of speakers and have greatly improved my 5. I have an 11 year old elac cinema 1 5. 1 speaker system, and although this system still sounded pretty good when watching films, music was always lacking in bass. This is because the elacs are too small to have any punch. These wharfedales, on the other hand, are much larger and have a much bigger bass woofer (10 cm) than the elacs (3 cm). Music now sounds really rich and full of bass. I use a yamaha rx-v373 receiver to drive them which is a budget receiver so i can only imagine how good the wharfedales would sound using a more expensive receiver. I am also using these in a small lounge so can’t comment on how good they would sound in a much larger room. I have kept the elac centre, two rears and sub while i save up to be able to replace these with the wharfedale equivalents. It is just a shame that the diamond 10. 0 speakers seems to have been discontinued 🙁 but the elacs work in harmony with the wharfedales and the system sounds great.

Excellent surround sound speakers. . Really please with these great sounding speakers. In fact they are probably too good to be simply used as surround sound back speakers, but they certainly do this extremely well and cope with louder volumes very well too.

0 speakers last month and they have been broken in gently. They are tight and powered by a yamaha 550bl reciever. The speakers are great and especially great for a smaller room, be it a bedroom or any living room. These speakers are lite at 3 kg each but pack a real punch. They have an impressive range for their size. Make sure you know the neighbours on a first name basis. They are smaller than missions ‘mx-1’ and at half their weigh but are very impressive and well constructed. I have no problem recommending these bookshelf speakers for anyone designing a mini system.

Sonos like quality at a fraction of the price. . Not the prettiest of boxes, a three for aesthetics at best. For desktop footprint, sound quality and volume, ease of use, etc. My ideal solution to sound for my pc would have been to plug into the play-1 in my study, only sonos doesn’t think i deserve an auxiliary input for my £170. For the £60 (yes the silver facia was half the price of say black) i paid i would say these two are comparable to the sonos in terms of build and sound quality.

Best you can get for this size and money. Ive always used yamaha speakers and these do not dissappoint. They are amazingly clear and detailed, so good in fact i use them to make music with ableton live, ive had people ask me if i have a separate subwoofer connected. For a 3″ driver this is incredible, they are built to last and are rock solid. Way better than my old bose pc speakers that lasted only 12 monthsjust buy them you will love them like i do.

Typical high quality yamaha product. Was looking to replace my damaged dell subwoofer and speakers to work with my imac and noticed the description of these as being computer speakers from the search. Unlike the review below, yamaha’s reputation being tested, i was always confident in this brand as always producing high quality sound products. These were the perfect size for me and available in silver and black to match the imac. The set-up, straight forward and once turned on the rich sound is immediately evident.

Best speakers i’ve owned, tops that of the b&w zepplin i have. Even though this set does not have a subwoofer, it still keeps up with the bass output. These are probably the best speakers i’ve owned, these even make the bower & wilkens zepplin i have in the living room sound bad. I was concerned at first regarding the auto-standby feature that they have; my previous speakers had this and it made an awful pop when turning back on – these speakers are ready to go from the first bit of sound that hits them. Couldn’t recommend them though. My partner has also order the orange set for her pc to replace the 2. 1 logitech set she currently has. I use these speakers for:>listening to music – anything from eminem, lindemann, to the bloody beetroots, it all sounds amazing. >gaming – mad max, vermintide, left 4 dead, guild wars 2, undertale. >movies(so pretty much everything).

Of course, it’s made in china, but the build quality seems solid. I do appreciate the dual inputs, the small size, and large sound. I actually had a visitor look down the back of the sofa for the subwoofer, because he thought i was taking the piss when i said there was none. Highly recommended if you can get them at a good pricethe power adapter is wall-wart europlug with a uk adapter included.

Love these speakers sound superb and look great, great service as well.

We bought a set of these speakers around 5 years ago to use with a new sony television in the bedroom. They were white (to match the telly) and were over £100. The improvement in the sound quality, however, was worth every penny. We now have a static caravan and the television we have there was connected to a small hi-if system to improve the sound quality. Which it does, i have to say, but there is a volume limit on the system which makes it difficult for my somewhat deaf husband to hear some of the programmes (not the adverts, mind you. After all these years the commercial stations still insist on blasting our ears with the adverts while the programme is virtually inaudible) also, i was fed up with missing bits of programmes while relating the details of the previous 5 minutes to hubby. So i suggested that we invest in some proper speakers. I did my usual search on amazon and found the exact same yamaha speakers we have in the bedroom.

wavemaster CUBE light grey – 2 – The best bookshelf speakers I have owned (Have owned a few including Bose) for the price number 1

I could not ask for anything better as all my needs are fulfilled. I would say they are just as good or possibly even better than the high range bluetooth speakers you can buy for hundreds of pounds. I would definitley reccomend these to anyone looking for a cheap but high-quality alternative to expensive brands.

I would definitley reccomend these to anyone looking for a cheap but high-quality alternative to expensive brands.

Excellent value and quality for money. I was looking for a simple blutooth speakers for use in my bedroom. I was given these as a gift and my my am i pleasently surprised. The flexibility of inputs, the sound quality and the build quality are astounding. Songs items don’t come close to this and they’re much cheaper. I’ve been streaming hi resolution flac at 24/96 to these and they really do sound great. Every connection you need is in the box. I’m very pleased and would recommend to anyone.

  • More than I expected
  • They are good enough to fill a large living room with rich
  • Sadly BLUETOOTH didn’t work at all.

Excellent quality, highly recommend.

. These speakers are ideal for my 32′ tv in my bedroom. Having the bluetooth option makes listening to music whilst poddling about upstairs so much easier , 1 switch and my tablet is booming out the tunes :).

Good quality speakers, sadly not loud enough. Decent quality, solid feeling speakers. Returned though as they simply were not loud enough for me. Personally i would stick to 50w as a minimum now.

Best set of bluetooth speakers i have ever had. . I brought these speakers for my daughter at the end of february 2015 as her old ones had broken. Previously she had a set of 2. 1 speakers but i was getting frustrated with the sub woofer that sat under her desk. I didn’t want to pay a fortune but she really loves her music (as most 14 year olds do) and having read the previous reviews these seemed a perfect set of bluetooth speakers for her. I have to say they are fantastic and am actually contemplating buying another set for the lounge. I don’t think i will ever go back to a 2. 1 system when you have these high quality bookshelf alternatives available. They look great but even more to the point sound brilliant. Why would someone pay stupid money for bose when these are available.

Technically a very good speaker for a brilliant price. I chose these speakers because i wanted some new, relatively cheap, bluetooth speakers. These have exceeded my expectations as being an underdog cheaper bluetooth speaker. The sound quality on these are fantastic, even on the loudest volume, which is quite loud, leaves a sharp crisp top end and warm deep powerful bottom. This is helped by the adjusters at the back for the desired amount of treble and bass. And these speakers are brilliant for all round usage. With the accessibility of bluetooth and an auxiliary these can be used in a variety of ways. The real stand out aspect of these is the value of money, when i was buying a new set of speakers i was thinking that i would have to spend about £200-£300 but these show that you dont need to pay that amount of money for good quality set of bluetooth speakers. Anyone who is looking for a good set of speakers for an amazing price i recommend these.

Easy set up and amazing sound quality.

Very good quality general purpose desktop speakers.

Good, solid, easy to connect. . I bought these for supplying laptop audio when we give small pp presentations in venues with no sound system. They are solid and well made and easy to set up. They are not as loud as my creative labs small speakers ( with sub woofer) but then these cube’s have easy connectivity to the laptop. They are chunky but easy to carry. Keep the boxso i think that in a room that holds 25 people who are ‘listening’ , if set on full power, they will give adequate and good quality sound where video has an incidental sound track. However they might not be loud enough for a very long speech video. In the home they are loud enough but don’t make things fall off your shelves and, to my unprofessional ears, are of a very acceptable quality. Don’t expect pro hi-fi at this price but they are a good solid sound solution for me. Btw they came quickly and well packaged.

Its sound quality is perfect in my eyes. Its sound quality is perfect in my eyes. Though every once in a while it decides to disconnect or i cant connect to it and i have to turn it on and off at the plug. Im unsure of why this is but it is only a minor nuisance. I wouldn’t let it put you off buying.

Wavemaster cube – 2. 0 bluetooth bookshelf speaker system (50 watt). After seeing a review on utube of wavemaster mini cube:[. (smaller version) i decided to go for the larger more powerful option, producing an output of 50w. After setting these speakers up, i must admit i’m very pleased with the not only the quality of sound, but the connectivity is unsurpassed. I love my music and for an active pair of speakers the dynamic range of tonal quality that these speakers produce is outstanding, i would recommend these to anybody looking for overall quality of build and sound. 0 bluetooth bookshelf speaker system (50 watt) for smartphones, tablets tv, mp3 / uk version (66325). ]

Was in the market for a half-decent set of speakers for my workstation. I’d already returned a pair of bose companion 2s (little pc speakers with no tone control for £90) because they were frankly awful, and was about to order the slightly more expensive harmon kardon soundsticks (which i’d heard before but didn’t really like the look of), then decided to do a bit more research. After a while i found these, read the rave reviews and decided to take the chance. Best decision i’ve made in a long time. These are in a completely different league to both the bose and harmon kardons; and every other sub-£100 powered speaker set i have ever heard. The cubes are basically fairly decent hi-fi bookshelf speakers, but with built-in amplifier, bass and treble controls, two wired inputs and bluetooth. I went for the minis as they have to sit on my desk, but they’re still pretty chunky compared to pc speakers and easily loud enough to fill a small room. And there’s no need for subwoofer.

I bought these speakers for me and my wife’s sanctuary (bedroom) and boy they don’t disappoint, the bass is crisp while it holds the mid range and low range well with the clarity of sound being very clear. I have the 50 watt version and one happy wife who can now hoover the upstairs of the house and listen to her tunes without straining her ears. So if you were thinking of buying these don’t hesitate you won’t regret it.

Pretty good high and low notes. Exceptional value for money, pretty good high and low notes. Ideally suited for me as the sound is quite directional so i can listen to it at a reasonable volume without having to entertain the entire neighbourhood.

Excellent quality desk/shelf speakers. I was very surprised just how good these little beauties are and not as expensive as more well known brands like bose either which makes you think that’s because they don’t sound as good. Well i can confidently say that is not the case here. I was originally just looking for some new pc speakers to sit on my desk in my home office. I wanted them to be bluetooth so i could stream spotify from my phone through them but also have the ability to plug into my pc’s audio out. You can actually connect 3 different inputs into them if you wish, the third being stereo rca. After connecting them up and trying them out i would actually say you could use them as living room speakers. The adjustable volume, treble, bass and crisp quality is amazing for such cheaply priced, small speakers.

Very good sound quality for the price, adjustable bass and treble so you can have it to your liking, and two switchable inputs + bluetooth is very useful. I only wish it had a front headphone out jack.

Great sound quality and fantastic value. I wanted some amplified speakers to use in my ‘home office’ which would do justice to my music collection while i was working from home. I spent a considerable time reading reviews of potential speakers to pair with my home computer and even auditioned some in our local currys / pc world. I was considering the bose companion 2’s and creative gigaworks 20’s as i did not want to have a large subwoofer lurking under my desk. The bose and creative speakers sounded okay but did not have much depth to them – but still really good for such small speakers. I then came across reviews of these wavemaster cube mini speakers on a couple of websites and was impressed with the specification and customer reviews. I decided to take a risk and buy the wavemaster speakers based purely on the reviews, and as they were such good value, i was ‘only’ risking £80 in any case – not £300. This has turned out to be one of my best decisions ever and i still feel like it was a bit of a gamble, which really paid off in this instance. These are roughly twice as wide (150mm) as any of the previous speakers mentioned and just a little bit taller and deeper than both of them, but the power and depth of sound is in a totally different league. I don’t have to turn the volume much over 1/3 of the power available to have my music at a comfortable volume, so they have plenty of capacity for other applications such as boosting the sound quality and quantity from your tv etc in a larger room.

Q Acoustics 2020i, Great Speakers, Great Sound and design

Husband delighted with gift. Good quality sound and great value for money.

They are the best speakers i’ve ever owned. I have them on the dedicated qa stands which helps a lot – they actually bolt on and the whole set up is very sturdy.

Change of tone for an old system. I have as yet not had too much time with these speakers. I have, however put a good selection of my music through these boxes. So far i have been pleasantly surprised with the results. I ran quiet mood music by enya to the full blooded massed pipes and drums and brass bands at the edinburgh military tattoo. I did not manage full volume as the neighbors might have complained but the speakers carried all with no effort even from my rather old mediocre old amplifier. I would recommend these speakers to any one who has an elderly system and who would like to refresh the sound in a relatively inexpensive way.

Comments from buyers

“Great Speakers at this price, Fantastic speakers, Fantastic Sound Quality for not much money!”

I use these in a surround system with the matching centre speaker and they perform very well. I do have a sub however they go down fairly deep due to their depth providing a bit more volume so are good at handling most music and effects required. I am very happy with these and i think you’s need to spend a fair amount more to find a noticeable improvement.

Very pleased with these – they perform very well indeed. Very pleased with these – they perform very well indeed. Not sure how they would cope in a large room but perfect in my modest home.

Love the detail and fast response. I use them with a nad amplifier and an old passive canton sub-woofer. Do not get complaints about connectors.

Great buy – excellent service. . Lovely sound on vinyl 🙂 fab purchase. Walnut finish particularly nice. Like the idea that q acoustics are a british company selling quality products.

I’ve been listening to audiophile hi-fi from budget to mid-prices – to a few high-end systems – these little wonders are stunnin. All that really needs to be said about these superb speakers. I’ve been listening to audiophile hi-fi from budget to mid-prices – to a few high-end systems – these little wonders are stunningly good on decent stands (good ones about the same price as the speakers) and fed with a decent front end signal and good amplification. They would shame many others at 3 times the price.

Phenomenal sound for the price: work well with cheap amps as well. . I have a couple of these connected to the telly through the headphone socket – via a super-cheap class d amp (£25), and they sound astonishing. They are so good i got a q-acoustics home cinema package (7. 1, using a denon amp) which also sounds stunning. For the price, they are a steal.

Great speakers, great sound and design. Excellent service from the seller peter tyson. Delivered next day via the bet courier imo dpd. The speakers sound superb, i’ve tested them in my system, use them in a 7. 1 setup and used the irene scene in black hawk down, excellent , the speakers are well built, a little bit darker than shown in the picture maybe but this is a good thing.

Fantastic speakers for a decent price. I am no hifi expert but like the sound. I use an fairly ok trio amp from late 70s to power. Changed from a pair of ok pure speakers. I hear a lot of nuances in music i did not hear before.

Great sounding small monitor speakers that are great to have sitting on your desk for high quality, clear sound.

Great speakers at a terrific price. . Having recently refurbished the living room and cleared out the av receiver and surround speakers, i settled for a soundbase for tv enhanced sound and playing music. It works well for the tvs but not so good for music. So, again not wanting to fill the room with ‘bits’ and cables, i decided on a small, simple but quality amp connected to these speakers. They look good, feel good and most importantly, sound terrific. They cope well with the full frequency range and are quality speakers at an affordable price. The usual great service from amazon, they arrived within two days as promised.

Superb speakers for the price. . The 2020i’s are well built and sound fantastic. They punch well above their price bracket and whathifi are right to grant them a 5* review. Thanks to the deep enclosure design they produce enough bass to be used without an additional sub. Mine are connected to a denon rcd-m39dab using qad micro cable and i couldn’t be happier.

Q Acoustics 2010I Compact Bookshelf Speaker Stereo – Excellent small speakers

Bought for a vinyl setup with a 70’s technics amp and an 80’s dual 501 turntable. The results are lovely, perfect for a small room with plenty of soundscape. They are small speakers but the sound is tight and punchy. I have mine in a bookcase without the foam baffles in the back (a little boxy sounding with them in) and there are little booms sometimes but for my money these are craking little speakers. The finish is top notch too.

Bought a second set for my folks after enjoying so much in own home.

Husband very happy with his xmas gift he wanted it early they. Husband very happy with his xmas gift he wanted it early they are so good value and excellent sound quality.

Good things come in small parcels. 5 big stars for these little fellas. Hooked em up to my nad amp and cd with some nice cable. What a difference from my old tdl’s. Listened to some old faves to check em out, superb. Was like listening to them a fresh, heraing new sounds and excellent clarity of the vocals.

Ugly, but reasonable sounding speakers for a small office.

Love these speakers, bought them as a replacement for a pair of jpw sp1’s which were great in their day but were passed their best after 25 years service. I have them in my home office hooked up to my onkyo cr-725dab mini hifi and also my pc, they easily cope with the power of the onkyo and deliver a great sound.

Excellent speakers for price, sound great out the box. I think nice design too, retro modern.

Had these paired with a pioneer a-10-k 50w stereo amplifier and the sound is sick. The exterior quality is also nice.

Very nice product, sturdy build quality and great sound.

Firstly you can connect the speaker cables using the mounting hole and screw terminals. I bought these to replace the same sized denon badged mission speakers which came with my 10yr old denon m31. They were fine but i hoped newer speakers would breath new life into the old kit. To my ears the sound is very noticeably improved. Crisper with speech and a warmer and more pleasing sound to music. I have them in a bookshelf and because they are within 200mm of the rear wall i followed the instructions and fitted the foam bungs in the rear ports.

These speakers were bought as i have a baby and didn’t want to faf around protecting and strapping my floor standees. Endless to say i won’t bother putting my floor standees back as these are absolutely amazing. I have them wired into my av amp for everything in the living room and the sound is crisp, clear and simply beautiful, whether it’s the tv, mp3, turntable or xbox.

I thought i would have to return them and get the bigger ones until thirty seconds into gareki followed by rodney crowell to confirm that these speakers are just what i need in my man-cave. The bass isn’t earth-shattering but strong enough out of those little 100 mm drivers. The overall sound is clear and very pleasing, not to say amazing. They handle the dynamic range of classical music extraordinarily well. I’ve been listening to them all afternoon, playing a variety of material and i haven’t found anything that phases these little giants. Definitely the best buy of the year for me.

Love them easy to hook up and sound great for the size.

The speakers are small enough for my little room. I would like to buy q2020i and wall supports but this seller doesn’t send to my country. I’m looking for one seller that sends these items to spain.

I can strongly recommend this small speakers. Sound is lively and detailed with a relaxed drive. Choral music and voices it can handle with authority. Complex orchestra music works great too. Enough of bass in the overall soundpicture. I heard many other bookshelves, but these rock.

Comments from buyers

“Super little boxes, Night and day in comparison to satellite speakers for music, Bang for your buck”

Very powerful speakers ideal for tv sound systems.

Excellent sound from a very small speaker.

Excellent sound from a very small speaker.

Good enough for most purposes. Out of the box, very disappointing, but after afew days burning in, much better. Mid range presence is very clean and balanced – gives a very precise sound stage. Don’t expect deep bass, but down to 50hz is good enough for most purposes. If these speakers are weak, its at the top end. I added a pair of cheap piezo tweeters.

I gave these a punt after sending back a set of smaller bookshelf speakers that were disappointing. I needed something smaller than my jpw ml-510s which pack some punch, but were way too big for what i needed them for. After much hunting, i found these at a price i was able to justify. I had hope that they would be good as the woofer size is the same as the jpws. I set them up side by side with the jpws and i was immediately impressed. They do sound a bit smaller/boxy but barely noticeable. I cranked the volume and they just kept on coping. To be honest i think my ears would break before i hit a volume that causes them to distort. To say i am happy is an understatement.

Top quality sound at a budget price.

Very powerful speakers ideal for tv sound systems.

Night and day in comparison to satellite speakers for music. I bought the matching center that goes with these to replace some sony satellite speakers i have in my 5. 1 setup (with a old trusty sony str-db780 receiver) to improve the systems performance with music. I also, got along with these, a pair of mordaunt short m10 standmount speakers, and all i can say is, especially these mr1s, they sound absolutely incredible for music. There is a much warmer midrange sound, and i was simply not getting this before. They also look the part, for sure. I can’t really reccomend these enough, i only had to pay £80 for mine, but i think even if i had paid the rrp of £100, i’d be perfectly happy because again like the entire monitor audio reference series, these seem to be built way above their price point and sound fantastic.

Very decent speakers specially for this price. I am still running them in but you can already hear that they are very balanced, with quite nice resolution and stereo image, perfect for a small room or rear speakers in a surround set up. If they improve after some usage maybe i add the missing star.

I had these in my wish list at £99 for a while, they popped down to £79 and i just went for it and i am glad i did. They compare very favorably to my main tannoy speakers, especially now that they are starting to run in a bit. They need good cables to get the best from them and i am running them with the supplied bass port plugs in as i have them closer to a wall than i would like and there is no loss of bass, it is just less boomy. As a spare room set up with my oldy but goldy marantz pm66 se ki sig, running mainly a vinyl set up, again old but refurbed pioneer pl112d table plus audio technika at95e cartridge, they are a perfect match. I also think they could work well in a much larger room than i have without any issues. If you are short of space, even at £99 as they are now they are a steal.

Brilliant excellent sound love them :-).

Tried them out initially with a stereo amplifier and was surprised by the depth of the sound, good bass for small bookshelf speakers and treble is very clear. Currently using them as surround speakers in a 7. 1 surround sound system and work great especially when mounted the wall.

Brilliant little bookshelfs. At first i found the bass to be a boomy but now they’re worn in the bass has tightened up and and the bass is controlled, punchy and pretty impressive for such small cabinets. Treble is bright and clear and the mid-range is clear and precise. Don’t expect a high-end finish but for this end of the market these speakers are well built and sound outstanding.

Bought these to replace the front surrounds as i already had the monitor audio centre speakerthe sound on these are really good, the bass is really punchy too. Sometimes i turn off my bk audio sub and it sounds just as good. Going to buy another pair for the rear soon.

I am still running them in but you can already hear that they are very balanced, with quite nice resolution and stereo image, perfect for a small room or rear speakers in a surround set up. If they improve after some usage maybe i add the missing star.

B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 tooth Speaker : Brilliant concept build and sound.

There is a very in depth description of this product on this page including a video which you should watch so i won’t rehash all those details. This product delivers on its description.Solid and clearly well made. Both muse and my husband who is gadget mad and a harsh critic loved it. It is incredibly easy to use with bluetooth. You just activate it in your phone and on the player and that’s it. An added plus is that the battery life for the b&o play shows up on your phone so it’s easy to see if it needs recharging.

Brilliant concept build and sound. . If you can justify £200 for a bluetooth speaker it is a delight to own. Having bought and used this i am very pleased to have purchased it. Firstly having researched this item, including reading amazon reviews, i went to a b&o shop so i could hear it and have how it works etc explained. It is the same price in a b&o shop. It feels weighty and very well made. Quality of design and build is right up to b&o’s usual high standards. It connected very easily to my iphone and my ipad. Apparently you can have up to two devices paired with it according to the salesman.

Excellent sound quality, small enough to be easily portable, and can’t quite believe how rich the sound is from this little speaker. Definitely recommended if you want to spend this much.

Great sound from such a small speaker. Excellent bluetooth speaker. Great sound for such a small portable speaker. Can be placed on a flat surface or hung in any room. As always with b & o you get what you pay for.

  • Brilliant concept build and sound.
  • Stylish portable speaker with a lovely clear sound
  • Great speaker, terrible app and stero pairing

Rather than faff about with halfords and fitting an in car system we use this to stream music whilst travelling which it is excellent at. Loud and clear and because it is portable we then also have the option to use elsewhere whilst out and about and usefully, to improve poor quality tv audio.

This speaker will amaze you. Trust me when i say, this beautiful little speaker sounds amazing. The bose mini was my favourite for the last 2 years. If your like me and don’t know whether to go for this little gem, i couldn’t recommend this speaker enough. Once you here it you will be blown away, i was. It really packs a punch for it’s size and also nice and loud. When you hold this speaker for the first time you won’t believe the sound that comes out of it. It’s my first b&o product and i am very happy with my purchase. I know it doesn’t have the best battery life out of all portable speakers but when you hear it and your like me, you won’t care. Anyway a simple fix is a portable battery charger and your good to go. Very portable, beautiful build, sounds incredible.Highly recommend (update) after using this speaker now for a few weeks, i’d like to add that this speaker does get hot at the bass, like make you want to turn it down hot.

Only caveat is that the text on the buttons is very difficult to read. Would be good with some “braille symbols” also missing battery indicator on connected phone (android).

Nearly £200 is a lot of money for a compact bluetooth speaker but not a lot for something from bang & olufsen so this is tricky to value for review purposes. The packaging is suitably premium and the unit is supplied with a usb to usb-c charging cable, a rather hard to follow multi-language instruction booklet and a leather hanging strap attached. Green may not be my choice of colour but it looks very well made with a top made out of metal alloy and a rubberised plastic base. The speaker is approximately the circumference of a cd/dvd and about 2 inches tall so it is portable but you are not going to be able to slip it into the pocket of your jeans and it has some real weight to it coming in at 600 grammes. It is very stylish and minimalist with no obvious buttons until you notice the symbols around the base. There are flush buttons to turn the unit on, adjust the volume and select functions but a hard to find and fiddly to use, a definite case of form over function. The unit is compatable with the b&o play app which apparently allows you to activate your most recently played music at launch, personalise your listening experience and use two units to set up (a very expensive) wireless stereo pairing. I was not able to test this as the android app has not been launched and the ios version was not in the apple store for my ipad 3rd gen, usually a sign of incompatabilty despite it running the latest version of ios 9. As this is pre-launch i have ignored this in the rating though.

Excellent piece of equipment. It is light and compact and the quality of the sound is superb and sounds like it is coming from a top of the range hi-fi. I’d definitely recommend this for playing your music from you phone around a pool laying in the sunshine with a cool beer.

Stylish portable speaker with a lovely clear sound. It has been really interesting being given such a lovely piece of kit to play with. I didn’t find it quite as portable as it suggests in the advertising – its about 12. 5cm across and 4cm deep and weighs approx. 575g but it is a very portable speaker. I took it on the eurostar and it came up on the scanner and i had to have my baggage searched but it was allowed through. It did take me a moment to get to grips with the on/off, bluetooth connectivity buttons and they do seem to be switches of some sort under a smooth flexible skin. The manual was tiny but very straightforward – i was amazed – so many manuals are awful – but pleased. You need something that is bluetooth enabled to play music. I have been using my laptop and my amazon music library and my phone.

Good sound from the b&o a1, not to much bass but when it is there it is clear and crisp.

Yea a little expensive but what a fantastic bit of kit easy to pair and to operate. Yea a little expensive but what a fantastic bit of kit easy to pair and to operate and sound quality is what you would expect from a b&o product. I can really recommend this product.

You won’t quite believe how good this is. You won’t quite believe how good this is.

Great speaker, terrible app and stero pairing. The sound quality is wonderful, so is the design and feel. However, do check out the reviews of the beoplay app. It’s essential if you want to make two of these work as a wireless stereo pair and is a thoroughly disheartening experience. Update: having negotiated the app and paired two of these for a stereo experience – when working the sound is wonderful, but the pairing is unreliable and intermittent, really spoiling the experience.

Excellent piece of equipment. It is light and compact and the quality of the sound is superb and sounds like it is coming from a top of the range hi-fi. I’d definitely recommend this for playing your music from you phone around a pool laying in the sunshine with a cool beer.

Nice product design but lacking bass punch and battery life. Well designed product with good, analytical sound; could do with a bit more punch from the bass frequencies. Battery life nowhere near the advertised 24 hours though – more like 8 hours at medium volume.

The bluetooth connectivity is awesome as is the sound quality.

wavemaster CUBE MINI – pretty good high and low notes

. These speakers are ideal for my 32′ tv in my bedroom. Having the bluetooth option makes listening to music whilst poddling about upstairs so much easier , 1 switch and my tablet is booming out the tunes :).

Wavemaster cube – 2. 0 bluetooth bookshelf speaker system (50 watt). After seeing a review on utube of wavemaster mini cube:[. (smaller version) i decided to go for the larger more powerful option, producing an output of 50w. After setting these speakers up, i must admit i’m very pleased with the not only the quality of sound, but the connectivity is unsurpassed. I love my music and for an active pair of speakers the dynamic range of tonal quality that these speakers produce is outstanding, i would recommend these to anybody looking for overall quality of build and sound. 0 bluetooth bookshelf speaker system (50 watt) for smartphones, tablets tv, mp3 / uk version (66325). ]

Good, solid, easy to connect. . I bought these for supplying laptop audio when we give small pp presentations in venues with no sound system. They are solid and well made and easy to set up. They are not as loud as my creative labs small speakers ( with sub woofer) but then these cube’s have easy connectivity to the laptop. They are chunky but easy to carry. Keep the boxso i think that in a room that holds 25 people who are ‘listening’ , if set on full power, they will give adequate and good quality sound where video has an incidental sound track. However they might not be loud enough for a very long speech video. In the home they are loud enough but don’t make things fall off your shelves and, to my unprofessional ears, are of a very acceptable quality. Don’t expect pro hi-fi at this price but they are a good solid sound solution for me. Btw they came quickly and well packaged. Here are the specifications for the wavemaster CUBE MINI:

  • Enter your model number
    above to make sure this fits.
  • Stereo bookshelf speaker system with Bluetooth streaming function for connecting to any kind of audio source (e.g. smartphone, TV, tablet, etc.)
  • Integrated amplifier with total 36 Watt RMS output power (including bass and treble control), can be connected to 3 audio sources simultaneously
  • Bluetooth-Streaming: the integrated Bluetooth module offer high quality audio streaming based on A2DP standard (compatible to Bluetooth 2.1)
  • Power saving eco-standby-function (less then 0,5 Watt during standby) and dedicated line-in for mobile audio sources such as smartphones and tablets
  • Connection: Bluetooth, 3,5 mm mini stereo plug or cinch. Works with TV, iPod/iPad, Mac/PC/Notebook or any other stereo source

Pretty good high and low notes. Exceptional value for money, pretty good high and low notes. Ideally suited for me as the sound is quite directional so i can listen to it at a reasonable volume without having to entertain the entire neighbourhood.

Excellent quality desk/shelf speakers. I was very surprised just how good these little beauties are and not as expensive as more well known brands like bose either which makes you think that’s because they don’t sound as good. Well i can confidently say that is not the case here. I was originally just looking for some new pc speakers to sit on my desk in my home office. I wanted them to be bluetooth so i could stream spotify from my phone through them but also have the ability to plug into my pc’s audio out. You can actually connect 3 different inputs into them if you wish, the third being stereo rca. After connecting them up and trying them out i would actually say you could use them as living room speakers. The adjustable volume, treble, bass and crisp quality is amazing for such cheaply priced, small speakers.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fantastic for the price.
  • Best Set of Bluetooth Speakers I Have Ever Had.
  • Good, solid, easy to connect.

Its sound quality is perfect in my eyes. Its sound quality is perfect in my eyes. Though every once in a while it decides to disconnect or i cant connect to it and i have to turn it on and off at the plug. Im unsure of why this is but it is only a minor nuisance. I wouldn’t let it put you off buying.

Excellent value and quality for money. I was looking for a simple blutooth speakers for use in my bedroom. I was given these as a gift and my my am i pleasently surprised. The flexibility of inputs, the sound quality and the build quality are astounding. Songs items don’t come close to this and they’re much cheaper. I’ve been streaming hi resolution flac at 24/96 to these and they really do sound great. Every connection you need is in the box. I’m very pleased and would recommend to anyone.

Bought these to replace my creative t40s which had developed a fault. These are a definite improvement over the t40s and are plenty loud enough connected to my pc in my bedroom. Only downside is that there’s no headphone jack on them.

Great quality budget speakers. . These speakers are a real find, they are very well made and feel really nice quality items, they sound really nice, way better than their price would have you believe, if you buy these you will not be disappointed. Perfect for better tv sound or computers etc.

Best set of bluetooth speakers i have ever had. . I brought these speakers for my daughter at the end of february 2015 as her old ones had broken. Previously she had a set of 2. 1 speakers but i was getting frustrated with the sub woofer that sat under her desk. I didn’t want to pay a fortune but she really loves her music (as most 14 year olds do) and having read the previous reviews these seemed a perfect set of bluetooth speakers for her. I have to say they are fantastic and am actually contemplating buying another set for the lounge. I don’t think i will ever go back to a 2. 1 system when you have these high quality bookshelf alternatives available. They look great but even more to the point sound brilliant. Why would someone pay stupid money for bose when these are available.

Very good sound quality for the price, adjustable bass and treble so you can have it to your liking, and two switchable inputs + bluetooth is very useful. I only wish it had a front headphone out jack.

Very good quality, nice bass. Also they look fantastic – stylishly simple. However (just a small thing), the wire that joins the two speakers together isn’t held in very sturdily by the clips. I don’t know if all speakers are like this to make it easier to rearrange various speakers in a system or not. It doesn’t affect the sound quality anyway. Also, be cautious when using with a record player (mine is pro-ject essentials ii) as the in-built amp isn’t quite as powerful as desired, so it only goes to about 1/3 the volume as playing through your phone.
