CREATIVE T4 Wireless Signature Series, these are great speakers base is really good this is at half

On first sight these speakers appear to be standard 2. 1 computer speakers, but they do have some differentiating features:- audiophile grade drivers. These do sound good to me though the woofer often overwhelms the small desk tweeters. The tweeters have a nice shiny steel finish on top so are easy to keep dust free and you can see the speaker through the thin fabric shield. Importantly they encourage you to listen to your music collection. It’s only a cubic foot in size but has 3 speakers and can output a good volume. But i’m not convinced it really blends seamlessly with the tweeters. Whatever level you set it tends to dominate the mix. Though the blurb describes it as tight, this isn’t the first word that springs to mind for me.

These are great speakers base is really good this is at half way, satellite speakers are really good small and powerful as well clarity is superb no feedback great music sound and when watching a movie this is using the optical socket, i use this for my tv and computer not used bluetooth or nfc as yet and the price as i bought this through amazon warehouse @ £146 really good value, i would recommend this system.

This ststem is fantastic, it looks nice, very tidy. Speakers small and only complaint is no obvious way to wall attach. Sub woofer meaty, big but not terribly large, all seems well designed. Music sounds good, a little bass heavy at times but sub can be adjusted, the sounds of various genres crisp or deep or mellow, it can handle well across different styles. Really enjoyable, not perfect, but good quality and impressive sound.

Comments from buyers

“Amazing sound for a very low price tag
, THE BEST sounding speakers out there
, these are great speakers base is really good this is at half

I bought this product because i had read that this had amazing sound for a reasonable price, and i wanted a 2 column + 1 woofer setup that had bluetooth, to listen mostly to music, and now and then a movie. I must say that i was immediately amazed from the near perfect quality that came out from this 2. The bass packs quite a punch but in the correct amount. The two small speakers are the stars in this package. They are just slightly bigger than bose’s satellites, they feel sturdy and well built, and use material that fell great on touch. The good:- pairing devices is a no brainer, with the nfc- you have optical input- bluetooth has great range and i cant detected any artifactsthe bad:- it uses a round dial for controlling sound and switching devices, i must say i’m not a fan of this, the sound nob doesn’t give you a pleasant feel and switching around devices is odd and not ergonomic, also it has a very very short cable- when the bluetooth is paired you get a beeping sound, as you should, but if you have been previously listening to music quite loud, the beeping sound will be so loud you could have a heart attackthe ugly:- the remote couldn’t be any worst. Its cheap, feels small and empty, and immediately i had problems with it. I don’t know if its the battery (it uses a cr2032 battery) that as a bad connection, but it works like an old t v remote that has a dead battery, i just keep beating on it for it to work.

Let me say that if you want 2. 1 then these are all you will needbasshead that’s what’s i am wow i use them on my pc movies games music it does the loti don’t really white reviews often but i had to for thesefantatic product.

The t4’s certainly look impressive on unboxing. The sub is considerably heavier then others i’ve owned of a similar size which indicates there’s a decent amplification unit built inside. The satellite speakers look good and have an anti-slip foam covering on the base. They were fairly straight forward to set up and the blue tooth connected to both my s4 and ipad without issue. Several weeks before the t4’s arrived i purchased a set of harmon kardon wireless soundsticks (which are of similar price to the t4’s) so i had something to make comparisons against. I’ve been testing the t4 system for just over 2 weeks now. Initially i played back music via blue tooth, then i wired them to an optical lead from my tv. Initially i thought the speakers on default setting came over as far too tinny on treble, even with a high bass setting on the sub. After some experimenting i managed to use the equaliser on both my phone and laptop to tweak and fine tune the sound to my preference.

Edit 2 – update 1/3/14i have since been in contact with the creative team, and their customer support has been excellent. With frequent communications, i have received a new pair of speakers after i was unable to install a patch (as i use a mac, not windows). Most helpful, and the volume control issue is now fixed. 4* because the bluetooth distance still remains an issue. Edit – update 3/2/14since writing my first review, i have noticed the volume control on the bluetooth port is not very sensitive, and will rapidly change the volume from one extreme of volume to the other with the smallest touch. Hence, i have knocked a star off of this review. Originalon opening the creative t4 2. 1 speakers i was initially impressed by the weight of the sub woofer and the smart look of the speakers. After some initial confusion on setting the speakers up (the speaker ports on the sub woofer aren’t excellent – they don’t fit very tightly into the socket, and require twisting, so i spent some time convincing myself these were the actual sockets), i was finally ready to test the speakers. I have never had speakers before, apart from those which are in built into my laptop, so my experience is limited.

This is very good speaker system if a little pricey. The sound is good though and the bluetooth connection very useful. The terms ‘wireless’ put in big letters on the box may be a little deceiving though- the speakers are wired into the woofer which runs off the mains, and the wireless aspect is only relevant to bluetooth enabled appliances. Whatever, still a good quality system to run your tv,pc or laptop off as well as ipods etc remotely.

These are the first wireless surround sound speakers that i have tried out and i specifically chose creative as i have used other products by them and have always found them to be solid and well made. I have this set connected to my tv with the weighty subwoofer below the tv and the little satellite speakers on either side. I have tried out the bluetooth connection with my phone and it work perfectly and was very easy to set up, although i don’t really intend to use that function much. The most important factor to me in getting this system was to enhance my television watching experience and these speakers certainly do that. They offer a rich, balanced but not overwhelming sound that really fills the room, in my opinion. From a price comparison point of view they do seem slightly more expensive than other comparable systems though but i am very happy with them all the same.

Absolutely love these speakers, sound quality is superb and bass is rich and just right. I have to say though that if your pc or whatever you are using these with had s/pdifdigital output then make sure you use it, as the difference between analog and digital is noticeable (at least it was for me on my asus laptop). Sound is much clearer through digital and really makes a difference. Very happy all round with these speakers.

1 surround sound wireless bluetooth speaker set’ is a set of high fidelity speakers ideally to be used with your tv/entertainment setup. However, having bluetooth capabilities, once set-up it’s an absolute doddle to link up any bluetooth device you have to the speakers (such as a phone, laptop etc) and then play your music through the speakers. As an audio set-up for our tv entertainment system, i have to say that the system not only met our expectations, but with the quality of the sound and the range in notes that the speakers can reproduce – the system has gone further and totally exceeded all of our expectations. With the adjustable bass knob set at the midway point, the depth in bass is astonishing. Crank that bad-boy up and you won’t know what hit you. You know when you go to the cinema and the bass seems to reverberate through your bones when some catastrophic explosions or the like are tearing things up – well, expect the same monumentally crippling levels of bass, obtained in your very own front room. Design-wise, the speaker set-up won’t necessarily fit the overall layout of everyone’s entertainment system or indeed the design of your room. Firstly, the slam subwoofer is reasonably hefty (21 x 21. 5 x 28cm), and in our room the only viable option which would keep my wife happy with the new speakers, was to have this unit located behind the tv itself (see included video).

* edited review *my initial review of the t4 wireless system was somewhat less than enthusiastic, as the volume control was faulty and the bottom fell off one of the speakers. Creative kindly contacted me and offered to send a replacement, which i recieved a few weeks ago. The new production line kit resolved the issues i had, so here is the edited review. I’m a bit of an audiophile, and i needed a setup to give my pc setup a bit more oomph, so i jumped on this when it came up. It’s certainly a tidy looking system, although the box proclaims ‘wireless speakers’ on the front when the speakers are wired, and the only wireless aspect is connecting a bluetooth device. Slightly misleading i think, but hey. So, the system has some very funky features. The bluetooth reciever also doubles as a volume control, channel switch and nfc tag. The bluetooth functionality works like a charm, and i had no problems connecting my galaxy s3 to it. Turning on nfc on my phone also means that i can touch the phone to the reciever and it automatically sets bluetooth input on the amp, and connects my phone, which is totally awesome, so plus marks for that.

Fantastic set of speakers, best value around.

Great sound, loud enough+++ good quality.

Ever since i bought my first flat screen tv – and i am a late adopter in most things electronic, preferring to buy mature technology – it has been impressed upon me by salespeople that the speakers in such tvs, being wafer thin themselves, do not deliver high fidelity sound. I’d been on the lookout for a soundbar or similar audio enhancement for some time, so it was a delight to be able to try out this creative labs device courtesy of vine. It was reasonably – not very – easy to connect everything up. I did have some difficulty getting the high frequency speakers to work, but after a few minutes i figured it out. I mention that now, however, because having turned it on again after a couple of weeks they’re not working, and in the absence of the right part of the multi-part manual that is provided, i haven’t been able to get them to work. That’s not necessarily a complete disaster, however, as it works pretty well when you just put the bass on with the speakers in the tv providing the treble register sound. Why, you might ask, have we not been using it every day?. My wife says that she finds the bass note unpleasant, and prefers the tv’s sound ‘as it comes’. She can tell the difference better than i – i would turn on the bass unit, and soon forget about it, but as soon as she came into the room she’d know that it was on and say that she didn’t like it.

I got this, multi-use system, to both improve the sound from my tv and to play music with a better quality in my living room, than the portable speakers i use, and in general i’m quite pleased with it. Given that there is a convergence of technologies between television/film, listening to music, telephony and computing (often on one device), it seems right to have a system that is designed to exploit as much of this as possible, without being tailored to just one. The system comprises a main unit with which the other parts connect and in which the sub-woofer is housed, plus two satellite speakers, a separate control unit and remote control. The main unit is a bulky affair and really needs siting on the floor, or somewhere with at least a good 30+ cm depth to allow for cabling at the rear. The satellites are dinky, about the size of rubik’s cubes and come attached to little stands, which can be replaced with taller versions if need be. The control unit allows you to control volume, select audio source (auxiliary or digital), switch on bluetooth, connect headphones through the standard 2. 5 mm jack or connect using nfc. The only thing you can’t alter with the control unit is the bass volume, which is controlled with a knob situated on the back of the main unit; this does mean that if you want to change the volume of the bass regularly, you’d better not make the back of the unit too hard to reach. It must be noted that the ‘wireless’ claim on the box, only refers to the ability to connect a device via bluetooth. The satellite speakers are still wired to the main unit, and unless your tv has bluetooth, you will still need to connect it using the provided cable, or using an optical cable (not included) if your tv has that feature.

These easily outperform so-called high-quality audio setups. These are great for listening to music. The clarity is amazing, so is the subwoofer, which performs fantastically, it handless jazz and subtle low tones superbly and can also throw some serious thumps when blasting popular music. I am not an audiophile, but this easily beats any bose sound system i have heard. The only downside is the remote which is fiddly and falls apart. Overall this was a great buy 4 years ago and i will be getting another set of these soon for my other bedroom.

My daughter is so happy, we gave it to her with a blu-ray player for christmas, the bluetooth option is also great so she can connect here ipods and things. The only thing is now, we struggle to hear the tv down stairs 🙂 oh, well she is impressed .

Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast MCRN470D Network Hi-Fi System, Life changing

Great quality for the money 👍👍👍👍.

For the last couple of years i have had a pioneer network hi-fi system, the hm72. It is loaded with features and can be controlled with an app but half the time the app crashes and it made using the unit a disappointing experience. I was half expecting the same from this yamaha mcrn470d but i have to admit to being pleasantly surprised. Not only that but it has exceeded my expectations. It really is a versatile and great sounding hifi. Set-up was easy and instructions aren’t really needed as it is obvious where everything goes. There are two aux inputs which i would imagine is more than adequate for the average user. I have plugged in my sony turntable and my sony mini disc player (yep, i still use one). There isn’t an optical input, which is a shame, but as i said most users won’t need one of those anyway. I also used a wired connection for the network along with a powerline adapter.

So easy to set up and the sound is incredible.

Comments from buyers

“So far so good.
, Great sound
, excellent system

This is a great product, and as there are some good reviews already i’ll not repeat what has already been said. We’ve had plenty of comments about the sound.

I was disappointed that was no proper instruction manual with the equipment i purchased making it impossible get operate it correctly and use all the facilities on the equipment. I would appreciate your input, regards dave sharp.

Firstly i’m no audiophile but the sound that comes out of this beast of a system is clear and well defined. For a small system this can belt out the sound and has loads of input options all controlled by an app on your phone. I must admit i was a little surprised that the speakers are wired up like a traditional system as i half expected the speakers to be wireless but i guess this would mean a much higher price point for true wireless speakers?the range of input options is pretty impressive , dab radio, internet radio, bluetooth, spotify to name but a few which are all programmed from an app on your phone and/or tablet. The app looks quite simple when you first use it but it can get quite complicated. I’m yet to find a search option on dab and when i ‘favourite’ a channel it seems to record the dab info rather than the station name?. I haven’t played with it much yet so i may be missing an option ?it’s a lot of money but sounds fantastic and i’d recommend on that basis alone. Plus it’s expandable if you buy other music cast speakers so you can transmit to other speakers you may buy. Good stuff, shame the app could use a bit more work.

A great little hi-fi system – well priced for what it delivers in terms of sound and function. Out of the box, the system was quick and easy to wire up with the cables and cable wiring guide provided. Placing a cd in the tray i was quickly impressed by the sound quality of the accompanying speakers – well balanced and offering a rich sound. You won’t get the same base as a dedicated subwoofer, but these really are a good solid set of speakers which delivered a good range over a variety of musical genres that i tested. Testing out the connected functionality was also straightforward, starting with playing streaming music from my phone over bluetooth. This however was a little too easy, with no pairing required meaning that anyone within range of the system would be able to control and stream music. Not a problem for some, but living in a flat and with an increasingly connected world i am cautious that anyone could play whatever they wanted through my speakers, or even get onto my home wifi network via this system as it is not protected. Using the musiccast app enables you to easily access and control a lot of the functionality found in the system. It’s easy to select different inputs and functions with the remote supplied, but much easier to really get deeper and do more via your mobile. Personally, i just used spotify via bluetooth on my phone, but you can also use spotify, napster juke and others directly through the hifi itself – perfect if you want to listen to music without having to have your phone on you all the time.

Great little system, good sound and easy to use. Change of track on usb stick is unbelievably fast even from album to album.

A great solid sound from a nice looking set up. Get great playback from usb sticks and external hard drives.

Connects really easily to my android phone and has a great sound, even at parties where we pump the volume right up, it still sounds great.

I really rate yamaha speakers and monitors: i use ns-10 and hs-80m for working on audio editing and recording. This compact system is just as impressive to me and is being used as part of a secondary surround sound system in another room at home; it works well with my tv and dvd player setup but also links up to spotify et al for a high quality streaming experience. Very good value for money from a trusted and respected brand. In my experience, their products last for years and years.

Great sound and quite easy to use.

Does everything it says on the box.

It’s perfect for my room, plenty loud enough and the quality is superb, connects to everything easily and the mobile app is easy to use.

Music freedom without having to find that cd.

The power is up to 2x 90w ( not indicated at description before saletill now). That is ok for medium house. Fast delivery but poor contact with a seller before sale.

Excellent bit of kit for the price.

Getting to grips with itnot particularly dummy – friendly.

Great product, meets the high expectations of a item bearing the yamaha name.

So far so good, time no doubt will tell. Nice clean unfussy design and good tone. Pity it doesn’t stack cds but apparently you have to pay a lot more for that.

This is an easy five stars for me; a good size (smaller than i expected), powerful, great sound quality even at very high volumes, lots of options for playing music. The speakers are 23 cm deep × 15 cm wide × 28 cm tall, and connect by traditional wires for the best response. There’s a connector for a subwoofer (not included) on the back of the main unit, as well as stereo inputs, a 3. 5mm input, a wired network port – and the radio and wireless antennae. The music cast app (free from the android store; there’s an apple equivalent too) is needed to set the hi-fi up on a home network, and once paired can also be used as an advanced remote control. The included remote control covers other features, but only allows three presets/favourite stations compared to a total of a hundred in the app. Itunes for windows can broadcast to the speaker using airplay; no set-up required once the speaker was on the network – it just worked. Playing from usb, if you already have a large library of mp3 files, is very straightforward – using the remote control to navigate the folder structure. The cd player and dab radio work flawlessly, as does internet radio once connected to the local wifi network – giving quick access to hundreds of stations around the worldas another reviewer notes, the lack of security on the bluetooth connection is slightly troubling; fortunately i have few neighbours close enough to be a source of potential conflicts. Yamaha’s music cast system gives the option to extend the sound into additional rooms by adding wireless music cast speakers.

This yamaha musiccast mcrn470d network hi-fi system offers lots of options in terms of musical input and output. For the more traditional you choose from playing cds, fm/dab radio plus internet radio, spotify, auxiliary input from an existing source like a tv, however, the crx-n470d can also play files from a pc or nas or mobile device including a usb stick (most popular file types are supported), plus, you can connect a phone or tablet using bluetooth. In addition, the n470d can transmit via bluetooth to powered speakers etc. The unit uses yamaha’s musiccast app (available for android and ios) to deliver multi-room functionality and there’s a good range of add-on speaker options. The first decision you have to make is whether you buy the crx-n470d packaged with yamaha’s ns-bp150 speakers or choose your own speakers although they’ll need to be reasonably efficient as the rated output is around 22w per channel. Once you’ve opened the box you’ll find the n470d is a well finished device with a minimalist metal control panel and remote (batteries are supplied). Physically both the unit and speakers exude quality in their build. After you’ve installed the app on a mobile device you can connect the unit to the internet and i suggest the first thing is to check for a firmware upgrade. I found setting up the media server function etc. In use i think the sound is very good considering the price/size of the unit – i already own a comparable unit which is the marantz cr611 coupled to a pair of mission lx2s. You can customise the sound by using the usual tone controls and a built in ‘music enhancer’ which i think is similar in effect to a traditional ‘loudness’ control. The sound is warmish with a good sense of space, taut bass and smooth vocals/percussion making it entertaining and non fatiguing to listen to. Despite the conservative audio output figure the sound is smooth and, if you want it to be, loud. This is a system i’m sure i’ll spend many hours listing to.

Good sound, sadly it’s not compatible with the yamaha musiccast sub 100 subwoofer, although i can’t see both devices in the musiccast app. After several trials, i discovered on the yamaha website that only some devices are compatible with each other, so do a lot more research before buying any other products that have musiccast.

After trying the yamaha mcrn470d hi-fi system for the last week i have been amazed by the quality of sound and ease of use. As the heading suggests, it has the capability of playing music direct from the internet. One will have to download music-cast to your mobile phone to be able to use this superb facility. Once downloaded and setup with the player, your mobile phone becomes the remote. From here you can control volume, internet channel and more. Personally i found net radio easy to use on the yamaha mcrn470d, giving a wide choice of genres from alternative music to today’s top 40, not forgetting the 60’s and 70’s. There is music to suit everyone. You can use others, spotify, napster juke or qobuz, its my personal preference to use net-radio. Of course, you can play music from your cd collection, dab radio or fm or even from your phone.

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

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Digital radio
  • FM wavebands
  • Bluetooth
  • 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.

Alba 50W 2 – Perfect Budget Soundbar For Enhancing Your TV

Like with most electronic goods, you get what you pay for with soundbars and this is no different. It’s lightweight, a good size, non-intrusive design and doesn’t have a ‘cheap’ feel to the bar itself – though that does not extend to the remote control which is remniscent of a cheap keyring mounted universal one – the sound quality is certainly an improvement on the television alone with clear, crisp sound and good range. The bluetooth function is very useful but the range could be a little better. 3 different sound profiles add an extra dimension reglardless of use and the 3d function especially is surprsingly impressive. I have however had one issue with the unit – when running my pc via my tv on hdmi, the bar suddenly went silent after about 90 minutes use. Disconnecting the bar, turning it off and on and then reconnecting resolved this but only for a minute or two. It does not seem to do it when connected directly to source by an audio cable, but if the original source of the audio is transmitted to the conncted device by hdmi (i. E a games console), it is very tempremental. I’ve ended up moving it to my bedroom as a speaker for my pc and looking to invest a bit more in something much better for the living room.

 having owned an excellent medium budget sony soundbar, i was intrigued to see what a low budget one could do. I got this during to black friday for £20 which at the time seemed like a steal considering it was priced for over £50. For the money, i was really impressed it has bluetooth, along with 50w of power and a remote. Of course, it doesn’t come with a subwoofer but that’s what higher budget ones are for. Pros-great value-physical buttons to control the sound bar-lightweight (not difficult to move or carry)-long design allows sound to spread better-easy to connect to with bluetooth-audio cable and remote includedcons-no nfc-sound crackles at high volume-power cord can’t disconnect from speakeroverall this is an impressive speaker, and with sound bars at these prices competing against more expensive ones, it’s likely we’ll see more affordable soundbars in the future. For anyone considering this, i don’t think you’ll be disappointed. When it comes to audio equipment i have high expectations so you’ll probably find the sound for any purpose is good for you. This would be brilliant for upgrading the sound for the main tv in the lounge on a budget.

AudioEngine HD6 150W Wireless Powered Bookshelf Speakers | Built-in USB 24-Bit DAC & Analog Amplifier | aptX HD Bluetooth : as much as i love them these are simply on another level entirely

So i’ve had these for a several weeks so far. A couple of small issues1) no optical cable, i knew that already but still annoying2) the power cable is a two pin so not standard uk plug so had to buy adaptor3) the current bluetooth device needs to be manually disconnected before next device can connect, really annoying, any cheap device allows you to override the first with a second4) sound gets mixed if you play two devices eg bluetooth about auxiliary in at the same time5) as there us no volume indicator can’t tell where you are at is it 25% 80% can never know having gauge helps6) i didn’t see any security on the bluetooth- means anybody can connect to the speaker if i’m not connectedi haven’t played them to the recommended 40hrs yet but sound and music is fantastic so far will come back with a proper sound review later. Because of the loads of small issues i’m gonna give it 4update: after a listening extensively i’m coming back and giving it a 5 based on sound alone. Though for certain types of base sounds you will need a subwoofer.

I have the a2+ speakers, as much as i love them these are simply on another level entirely. The most important thing is to run them in for a couple of days as this really seems to improve the sound.

The most beautiful speakers on the market, in my opinion. Especially noticeable at high volumes, where there is very little distortion. I find the bass very capable and don’t feel like i need a separate sub-woofer for my needs. A lot of people like the remote, though i’m not a fan. I find it a little awkward to get the right angle to get the signal to the speakers and it’s also a little ugly and poorly made.

Have been using them on a regular basis since over a year. The bluetooth connection with computer works smoothly, has almost no quality loss and has no latency. The sound definition is absolutely amazing for music as well as movies and is ideal for a good mid-range home cinema.

  • Sounds fantastic but several irritating small issues
  • These speakers look great and sound excellent
  • I highly recommend them! The bluetooth connection with computer works smoothly

Bluedio Bluetooth Speaker TS-3 : Great speaker

Speaker has been delivered very quickly and very well packaged. Very easy to connect and use as every single detail is explained in manual. It looks stylish and interesting. It draws attention for sure. Also it is compact and doesn’t take much space on my desk. It is a huge advantage for me and i’m loving it as it is very comfortable.

 this is an absolutely amazing speaker. Please refer to the video for the full review. . I was supplied with this for free in exchange for an honest review.

Bluedio Bluetooth Speaker TS-3(Turbine) 2.1 Channel Wireless Speaker System with 59mm Subwoofer/Micro SD Card Slot(Champagne Gold)

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 1. Bluetooth 4.2 TS3 adopts the latest Bluetooth 4.2, which has lower power consumption and higher performance, to improve the transmission speed, and to let you hear more details.
  • 2. 2.1 sound track TS3 is a multifunctional speaker specifically designed for pop music. With built-in 2.1 sound, it’s suitable for music of various styles. Each tune is so dulcet that you will certainly be immersed in a wonderful music world.
  • 3. Right and left independent Cavities TS3 adopts right and left independent cavities, which ensures the two drivers will not interfere each other, to optimize the resolution, and to make the sound stay true to the music.
  • 4. Center-channel sound effect The drivers towards the floor can effectively convert the bass into center-channel sound effect through the inverter tube, which will strengthen and enrich the alt, to make it bright and clear, combining the right and left sound track, the surround sound will be more stereo and rich.
  • 5. Bass driver towards the floor The built-in bass driver at the bottom of the speaker produces sound towards the floor, to purify the bass and reduce the directivity, so that the sound will be more powerful and stereo.

 i was offered this ts-3 wireless bluetooth speaker by bluedio at a reduced price in exchange for and honest evaluation and review. And i admit, i am already a bluedio fan, owning several sets of brilliant bluedio headphones and the bs-3 (the later being a really excellent speaker). Okay, so as per usual the bluedio unboxing experience was very pleasurable. Slip off the outer sleeve and you have the usual quality black hard box (perfect for storing) and inside you get the actual unit itself (i was sent the champagne one), a usb to micro-usb charge cable, a gold plated 3. 5mm jack and operating instructions in several different languages. The unit itself is just drop dead gorgeous in my opinion. Bluedio has really raised the bar with the design of this gorgeous unit which looks like no other on the market. The ts-3 has been specifically designed for pop music using its built in 2:1 sound, that is, two 2w 49mm drivers and one 5w 59mm (right and left channels + bass). The two 2w left and right speakers are isolated from each other in independent cavities so as not to interfere with each other. The built-in bass driver at the bottom of the unit optimises an inverter tube which pushes the sound towards the floor giving a rich deep bass. The ts-3 uses the latest bluetooth 4. 2 offering a 10m operating range and lower power consumption and higher transmission speeds and includes an sd card slot that supports a max 32g micro sd card, an aux audio input so you can hard connect to your favourite devices, and there is even a smart app for the ts-3 that allows you to control certain functions from the app on your device. Charge time is between 3-4 hours which returns about 5 hours of continuous play and 1000 hrs of standby. The audio resolution is 24bit (48khz) and the dynamic range is 96db.

Bought these for a friend, here’s his opinionwow. Blown away by this little star. Bought some bluedio headphones a while ago, so i was expecting to be surprised. Sound sublime, and look very classy.

Nice appearance, easy to set up with bluetooth,sound a little bit tinny but about what you’d expect for the price.

Bluedio Bluetooth Speaker TS-3(Turbine) 2.1 Channel Wireless Speaker System with 59mm Subwoofer/Micro SD Card Slot(Champagne Gold) : Looks great but sound quality is poor. Ok for spoken word, audiobooks and such like.

It has the same control dial as the t3 headphones so for me it was a very intuitive switch to go between them both. I keep this speaker in the bathroom and it is very loud; easily loud enough to be heard over the sound of the shower. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks and have only charged it twice. Bluetooth range is the same as pretty much every bluetooth peripheral that i have and spans across a room easily. I like that the volume control on the speaker actually controls the iphone volume rather than its own – this allows for songs to be played quite loudly without any distortion at all. Overall very pleased with the speaker and makes a great accompaniment to the bathroom. It is not waterproof by any means but is kept away from sources of water. If there does happen to be some splash, the speakers seem prepared to deal with it adequately.

Great appearance, sound good but not great.

 this review covers the unboxing and first impressions of the bludio ts3 bluetooth speaker. I am including a video to cover this and i shall go through the controls to operate the unit. The packaging is superb, as we have come to admire from bluedio. Once the black box is opened there is a wow factor on first viewing the speaker. The design is not like anything i have seen before. I love the frustration free packaging. I hate those packages which need a tool kit to get into them. I have the champagne gold version. A very pale gold but in no way intrusive. First thing i did was to charge the battery while i studied the instruction manual (always worth doing) as with bluedio headphones the centre top of the unit with its circular switch is actually five switches, each with more then one function.

Loud, doesn’t distort, i don’t really understand the presets as you don’t have a visual clue, but it’s fine and i like the clear, loud maxed sound,and the phone app.

Wow really nice not that loud but sound is fantastic got next to bed so great. Highly recommended great buy very pleased 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟.

Bluedio can be a little hit or miss – their earphones are superb but i wasn’t too impressed with their lower end speakers. This unit looks very cool, connects quickly and stays connected. As others have said, the settings initially are a little light on the bass, but play your music through an app and change the equaliser to increase the bass. Unfortunately, i cannot find the bluedio app that they say is available. The sound is very bright and at full volume, is really loud. Not sure what people are expecting for this price, but i am very happy with this speaker :).

This bt speaker didn’t really hit the spot for me. I own many speakers but always eager to try another. The bluedio has very little depth to its sound which is rather tinny and vacant. The performance is okay for light classical and basic radio listening but not for anything where the bass or mid-range is important to you. The volume is not particularly punchy either. The look is stylish with a retro feel about it and the control dial resembles a vinyl record which is a nice touch. It’s okay overall but if you want a premium product you will have to look elsewhere i’m afraid.

1hurricane turbine seriestoday we bring you the exclusive ts3,in volume one, we will talk about what the next generation of the hurricane turbine series has to offer but not in a headphone, this time in the next hurricane series we bring to you the ts3 2. 1 speaker with a new futuristic look and design that reaches out to all the audiences and fans and great sounding stage processes. Let’s start with the unboxing experience, as you know when you buy any bluedio product, every unboxing experience is unique and full of surprises because you know now that infront of you, you are now part of the bluedio family and moments away from the true hearing experience. Because you are all the audiences, and to bluedio you are family. Now, with the unboxing of the new ts3 2. 1 you are presented with a classic and very sleek sleeve over the main box with all your information and details from the specs even graphs,as you remove the sleeve your presented with a very solid box with a magnetic clip on one side where your inches away from opening to see the goodies inside with all your fingers tingling and your heart racing. Now this is when your thinking to yourself do i, or don’t i open the box, maybe i should wait bit longer with all this excitement?. Lol okay okay we’ll stop teasing you, well maybe, we’ll see ;)okay as you open the box your presented with a instructions manual in a nice hidden pocket under the lid as you open the box, and as your eyes widen with excitement you feast your eyes on the champagne gold ts3 and the first thing you notice that seems familiar to you is the circular controls which are from the t3+ 3rd generation turbine headphones, a great way of design plus recycling keeping something familiar you already know and love from the hurricane series but that’s not the only thing you notice it also comes with a built-in micro sd card slot that can take upto 32gb like the t3+ headphones if you don’t want to the other features like bluetooth or the aux port. 1 has a major design overhaul with sleek curves futuristic lines and very eye catching body plus creative build layout from the inside. With the ts3 from yours truly, you have two fibreglass horn drivers and a hidden subwoofer that is housed underneath from the naked eye from the front. The power is amazingly impressive and very loud as the ts3 runs at a minimum of 96db and can run easily at 110db with no trouble, as the audiences say it’s small but mightyf the questions of (how does it sound or the soundstage it produces) at bluedio, they always use science plus engineering technology to make you jump out of your seat with there own technology and craftsmanship, because bluedio is the pure hearing experience and giving you and all its audiences the true passion of hearing, because listening and hearing are different, as we all know most majority of the world listens, well stop, come and be apart of the bluedio family and start hearing the true hearing experiences of audio as it should be and indulge yourself with the passionand love bluedio it has to offer not just from it’s beautiful line from one of a kind headphones like the fabulous ufo plus 12 speaker driver 11. 1 cinema surround sound headphones, but also in the portable speaker systems, so when it comes to that question of (how does it sound)every experiences from all different types of models is unique and pure, that’s all you need to know, so stop wasting time listening and start hearing just go out there and grab life, live life with bluedio amazing life the true hearing experience. Now we come to the battery life of the beautifully crafted ts3there’s not much to tell than once again bluedio has done it again, the standby time is just so impressive 1000 hours that’s unique in its own way,if you wish to have max volume which is extremely loud you’ll get on average five to six hours playback, now if your volume level is round 50% which is still loud lol you’ll get a good nine to ten hours+ and it just keeps going, so battery life is just bliss for something so mighty.

As i had purchased from them before the supplier gave me a discount on this item. It has arrived and my daughter loves it playing her music off her phone regularly good sound and quite powerful.

I bought this for my daughter’s birthday and she is delighted. The sound is clear and sharp with a good amount of bass. Despite a rather faffy design, the speaker is well constructed and weighty although this makes it somewhat less portable. Connecting to bluetooth devices is a breeze and the battery life appears to be quite good. Changing the equaliser outputs by repeatedly hitting the same button is rather hit and miss. A good bedroom or kitchen device however you’re unlikely to pop it in your bag to take on holiday for which a smaller, lighter speaker such as the jbl flip would be more suitable. As a repeat customer of bluedio products i was offered a discount on this item in return for an honest review – et voila.

Not a bad piece of kit, certainly considering its price. It comes nicely packaged with the manual and a usb lead for charging and also a 3. 5mm lead for direct connection, the bluetooth connection works great and has a good range. Sound wise it’s extremely detailed and whilst the treble is a little bright straight out of the box it settles down after a couple of days of use and the bass though not necessarily deep is very well defined. The midrange is really good, it always sounds controlled and detailed with vocals in particular being very detailed and engaging, even at higher volumes it doesn’t ‘grate’ or become tiresome as some of the other offerings i’ve heard. I cant offer an opinion on how it compares with more the expensive offerings from bose, jbl etc but i have friend who has a soundlink and he was as impressed with the t3 as i am.

1 channel wireless bluetooth v4. 2 speaker with 59mm subwoofer/micro sd card slot(champagne gold)i recently placed my order for my ts-3 bluetooth speaker and received it the following day using amazon prime. It came in a quality box, well package. While i know the box is always discarded it did give me confidence my purchase was a good one. Removing the speaker and charging lead i connected the speaker to the charger. A circular red led illuminated. The manual detailed this indicted the speaker charging. While removing the speaker i did notice the speaker feeling lighter than its appearance suggested. The appearance suggested a metal housing but closer examination showed it to plastic albeit champagne gold and chrome in finish.

It’s light so i can move it around, comes with an audio lead to plug in into my tv. I actually bought this speaker for my brother for xmas but decided that it is way too good for him. It’s amazing, the bass on it in incredible, it’s what i’d expect from a big proper speaker, not a portobello bluetooth speaker. I was expecting a little hand held speaker to arrive but this is not here tomes bigger. It comes in a lovely box so would make an excellent gift. I really do love this speaker and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a wireless speaker. It’s brilliant, fills my whole house with music.

Excellent product in sound and design.

Acoustic Energy Aego3 2, Almost a killer deal

Very quick delivery to start with and then presented with amazing value for money as the system is very musically balanced. 1 package i have heard for under £300. Only gripe with the speakers is a minor noise floor in the amp which causes static noise through the speakers when nothing is played.

1 consumer system got even better. The new ports are very convenient; actually, they’re perfect for home cinema, as you won’t need a many meters long cable to connect it to your machine (for setups where it’s kept close to the projector). The audio quality is superior to the aego m, but unless you have super ears or you train for it, you won’t notice the difference in daily listening. The negative note is that it is *not* true (from their advertisement) that the speakers are silent when there is no audio signal – therefore the 4 stars.

Excellent sound quality, very powerful, easy to establish a bluetooth connection and very well constructed.

Comments from buyers

“Almost a killer deal
, Superb speakers
, The best 2. 1 consumer system got even better

I can’t say enough about this speaker package. The best computer speakers i had for 20 years. They have an awesome sound reproduction. No speaker package that i’ve had in the past can come close to these.

I’ve used acoustic energy speakers for years. I had the aego2 and the originals. These are quite simply the best computer speakers i’ve heard and i’ve bought all the popular ones. My only slight gripe like others have mentioned is the hiss. You can’t hear the hiss at all when in use but it does mean that i have to power them off after use as my pc is in my bed room and the hiss would drive me insance when trying to sleep. If you appreciate good audio then you can’t go far wrong with this set.

I so wanted to like this product. Solid heft, good design and metallic feel to the sats. The sub/amp unit is possibly built a little more cheaply, but it’s still well-constructed. And it fits the bill in terms of neatness and compactness. Bluetooth worked well but the remote is flimsy and eminently losable, yet still functional. They do go surprisingly loud for their diminutive size but there’s a big midrange hole – and whilst you get good upper frequencies and a reasonably deep bass, that lack of midrange just feels odd in the end, so my preference is still a set of modest hifi speakers and an amp. But the biggest problem for me was the annoying hiss from the sats. They hiss constantly when not playing music – and you can even hear this when playing low volume music. I had to return them as i expected better (but i am super fussy).

AZATOM® Stealth-Air 2B Speaker : It’s all about the bass.

Arrived on time, really easy to set up and the sound is really good for a single speaker. Early days yet but probably going to get a second one, based on the first.

Really pleased with purchase. We were looking for an airplay device to work with itunes / ipad / iphone. The speaker was simple to set up. At £100 compared to other more expensive speakers we wondered about quality but were not disappointed. Our only concern was in listening to classical music, orchestral, where the stereo effect was less evident. For other music seemed fine. We have since purchased a second speaker and using the azatom app. Were able to set one as left and the other as right to create a more normal hifi result. The sound quality is impressive and would recommend device.

Amazing sound and functionality for the money.

This speaker really fills a room with sound, but is compact and neat with a remote that allows for power on/off, volume, mute, bass, mode and track change control. I connect my iphone and ipad to the speaker via wifi and the connection is straightforward (ensure both devices are on the same network). Google music, amazon music, tune-in radio and spotify all play faultlessly. I connect an amazon echo dot to the speaker via bluetooth and again, that is easy to setup via the alexa app (and the pair button on the remote). I’ve also found that i can skip tracks using the remote while being connect on bluetooth, which is handy. I have connected the speaker via the 3. 5mm jack to my computer, and the quality is excellent. I would highly recommend this speaker as a great value option when compared to some of the much pricier branded options.

It has been an epic journey to get this speaker. . Amazon, rarely fail, but when they fail it is epic. They have had my speaker at their depot for 10 days and tried to tell me despite their own updates saying it is in the depot and is failing due to ‘external factors’ such as traffic, supplier stock, all of which are nonsense. Eventually i cancelled the order and re ordered it, as they cannot tell me what has happenned ot the speaker. . Now enough of my gripe with amazon. . It took me 2 mins to unpack it and then another minute to plug it in and turn it on. It took me 30 seconds to link it to my wifi network via airply – seriously easy.

AZATOM® Stealth-Air 2B Speaker with Airplay – Bluetooth – WiFi. Compatible with Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Deezer through AirPlay Bluetooth & WiFi. British Design Engineering. : I bought an azatom drood portable speaker 4 years ago amazing wee speaker. Then i was bought the stealth air 2b. It is fantastic really crisp sound and thumping bass. This compares to the sonos play 5 speaker in terms of sound though the azatom has better bass. Build quality is exceptional if it lasts like the droid speaker i will not complain.

Was going to wait for the homepod but apples delay made look earlier. Researched the usual suspects but wanted a speaker with airplay and decent bass. Was leaning towards a micro hifi until i saw this. For the price it was worth a punt and i’m glad a did. The sound suits my ears to a tee and the bass is amazing. Shame their sound bar does not mention dis as i would purchase that to go with my apple tv.

I have 2 connected together and they sound great, really happy with the build quality, and the fact they are made in the uk is also great. Amazing speakers at a great price.

Recently purchased this speaker after have a bose sound dock for many years that gave up the ghost. Wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this speaker in terms of quality build and sound reproduction as its a brand that is unknown to me, but i have to say that i am delighted with my purchase and this speaker scores highly on both quality build and sound reproduction. If you;re looking for clarity, base and volume this speaker has it all, add to which a multitude of connecting possibilities. I viewed this purchase as a product test for quality and sound and in light of my satisfaction will now be confidently making further azatom purchases in the stealth range for my tv sound stage.

Powerful, rich sound to make the most of your phone/tablet based music. Bluetooth not 100pc reliable with the odd breakup even just feet apart, but the wifi is very good once devices are paired.

Have to say, had a few initial problems getting this to connect to airplay and was going to return items as i bought a second one as i like the sound so much. Problem all sorted now and apart from not having any treble to adjust the sound as you can with the bass i am more than happy with the system.

I was hesitant about buying this but after i unboxed it and set it up all i can is wow. The sound quality is great the bass that comes out of it is emense, going to purchase another. Great product same sound as a hifi in a small package good value.

As a bluetooth speaker its great, as an airplay speaker i’ve found it to be lacking, and it was airplay that i was really interested in as bluetooth speakers are plentiful. It took me a while to figure out, but airplay on this speaker will only work if my wifi is on channel 1, which is not the channel i use to reduce wifi interference. The remote is fully functional in bluetooth mode but not in airplay mode, you are unable to change tracks or play/pause. If your happy with my comments, then buy it, its a good sounding, powerful speaker. I’m disappointed but not enough to send it back, it’ll do as a kitchen speaker. I’ve emailed azatom twice but have had no response. That’s really disappointing**update**. I bought an echo 2nd generation and used the aux in, although initially a little quiet, once i adjusted the volume on the echo, it sounds great.

This device delivers an awesome audio experience for the price, and also the small size. For those who need to fill a room with sound simply, the azatom stealth air 2b does this effortlessly. Not only through bluetooth, but also through airplay for those with nas libraries. I actually use roon on a much higher cost system, and the little azatom handled the music with the same without issue. I used 2 of these at a party recently, and the bass weight that is delivered from this small box makes larger stereo systems seem excessive. I have done stereo for many years, but this device just knocks the whole tradition into touch. So many bluetooth speakers don’tdeliver on bass, but the azatom punches with weight and authority; thanks to 2 passive bass radiators on the bottom edge. This is a great party speaker. It also does other genres well.

Usual quick amazon delivery. The box contained the instructions which seem pretty complex when reading them through as there is more than one configuration option. I then spotted the separate one sheet fast start instructions. Had the unit connected running in about 10 minutes. Sound quality and performance is amazing for the size of the unit and less than a hundred quid. The unit is very portable and once the wifi is connected the first time, after that it just needs to be plugged into a wall socket and away you go. So it is easy to move if you want to. I’ll probably still get another unit for a second room.

I’ve had the stealth 1 for about 41/2 years and it’s worked really well. I’ve finished renovating my house and wanted to get 3 speakers to make a multi room system. After trying sonos and assessing the comparable cost i decided to try 3 azatom 2b’s. The difference between the 1 and 2b is very significant. To start with they look nicer, they are much easier to set up (takes less than a minute using iphone). It’s so much better that they don’t switch off after 15 mins now, and the connection seems much stronger. As for the sound, we have two in a very big 17m x 5m room and they sound great. I’ve also got one upstairs so the music floats round the house for the cost of nearly 1 sonos 3. I’m absolutely chuffed to bits with my purchase and the app works fine for setting up the speakers to multi room or stereo.

Fantastic value for money and a real quality item. I already have a stealth air 2 which has worked flawlessly for 2 years and needed a wi fi airplay speaker for a holiday home and this was the obvious choice. The 2b has not disappointed. It has a great tonal sound range and excellent build quality and finish – easily up there with bose or bowers & wilkins but half to a third the price.

Had this almost a month now and although i have never owned a sonos play or bose soundtouch speaker i would be very surprised if the azatom is not a very good value option. Sound quality is good, certainly fills a room in terms of volume and retains decent quality through the range. Really pleased with it and would absolutely recommend to those who want a good speaker without the premium cost associated with the two options above.

Excellent piece of equipment and well worth the money. The wifi connection is useless but works great on bluetooth.

The stealth-air was very easy to setup and the sound is very rich, much better than i was expecting. Wish it would work with sound bar in hdmi mode. Azatom app seems to cause drop outs when in multi room, have used the whaale app this has been rock solid.

Good sound quality, wifi indicator can be difficult to see. Remote defective but replaced by manufacturer without any problems.

I bought this for my dad’s 80th birthday and he loves it. I own a stealth bar already which i’ve never had a problem with so i chose this because of the overall reliability and build quality. If you use apple airplay this is, dare i say, a steal. The airplay function is extremely reliable and better quality audio (no loss from original format) than bluetooth. Saying that, the bluetooth on this unit also seems ok but we don’t use it as airplay was main reason for buying it. Good overall sound and volume for the size and price. Apple users take note, you will not get an airplay speaker for this price anywhere. Also if you keep your music in lossless or high quality, you simply have to use airplay. Obviously proper audiophiles would use a better system but for a small single unit, this isn’t half bad.

DynaVox WS-502 Flat Panel Speaker 40 Watt Pair – Good overhead speakers for Dolby Atmos set up

Good clear sound, looks good wall mounted, not as bulky as most speakers.

Though they will never really compete with the high end speakers these are fine as part of a surround system. For the money ( i paid less for a damaged box) they really are not bad.

I bought a pair of these ws502 speakers and mounted them on the ceiling as overheads for a dolby atmos surround set up. Not only do they sound good, they look unobtrusive against the white ceiling. I made a couple of ‘s’ shaped brackets out of aluminium sheet and painted them white, fitted small foam pads to the underside of the speakers so they’re held securely and won’t vibrate. Cables went up through 6mm holes into loft, across and down hidden corner of wall to the amp. Covered with scotia and painted to match wall. No complaints at all about sound quality for this purpose. Here are the specifications for the DynaVox WS-502 Flat Panel Speaker 40 Watt Pair:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Very flat 2 – way speaker with outstanding sound quality
  • Well suited as a wall speaker and surround box
  • 135 mm Woofer
  • Dynamic tweeter

They sounds ok, but a bit ‘canny’. I bought them for the format. I would pay more for better sound. Light weight, and easy to install om wall, i used 3m metal picture-hangers so avoid screws.

Not top quality as one of the labels keeps falling off. However these fit on the wall perfectly and slim, so look great. Sound for surround system is also good. So a great buy and i am happy with the result.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good overhead speakers for Dolby Atmos set up
  • really compete with the high end speakers these are fine as part of a surround system
  • The speakers are well built and look good. Comes with speaker cable

Does the job but, as you would expect, the sound is very tinny. The speakers are well built and look good.

JBL Home Cinema SB 150 Soundbar Speaker System – Expected a better sound quality

Like with someone else reviewing this home cinema system it’s powered by a sony strdn 1040 cinema amp and very nice too it sounds. My only gripe is the satellite speaker mountings are a bad design and a little tricking to get right in terms of tightness.

But expect a better sound quality. Bought a yamaha yas – 105 for a same price. Very happy with the sound and build quality.

I was a bit sceptical due to the small size of the speakers but they are very well built and are of good quality. I am using it with a sony strdn1060 amplifier which i think helps the quality of surround a lot. As others have said the speaker cable inputs can be a bit tricky with the hook behind but its a minor point. All round i am very happy with the speakers.

It doesn’t suffer from having too much bass which other speakers do. The remote is basic but has all the features you would want.
