Pioneer XW-SMA4-K 40W Hi-Fi Compact Wireless System : Great product, well worth the money

Fantastic audio, well-linked speaker. Superior sound & quantity, though as a lot of have pointed out, as the volume boosts it is a bit bass hefty, and not normally in a fantastic way. That reported, it has excellent connectivity (wifi, ethernet, aux & ipod/apple iphone). The setup guidelines (which unfolds to the measurement of a tablecloth) bear examining a quantity of periods, to get it suitable. I observed that composing on your own a postit or label detailing the which means of the standing lights assists a large amount. It truly is structure, appear and sizing are pretty good – it won’t shout ‘look at me’ – it just does the occupation.

Terrific seem high quality, enjoy it. When this is turned up to max the audio excellent is wonderful, no distortion and fantastic bass. Only critic is that the bass is fairly deep even when at small volumes but this can be tweaked from your system normally i. From ios product you can pick one more audio profile from within the eq configurations. Really like the airplay functionality and how it turns on instantly from standby within just a several seconds and then goes back into standby immediately soon after a handful of minutes of halting playing music. The missus and even the youngsters love it owing to the simplicity of airplay but i generally chose this speaker around other airplay speakers simply because of its sound excellent for the price tag. I would say you will not likely get a improved sounding airplay speaker than this for significantly less than £500. The only a bit annoying detail with airplay is that quantity is a bit out of sync when initially turning the gadget on, so if you switch the volume up you get a sudden bounce in volume to almost max.

Straightforward to set up and will work flawlessly through airplay. Can be a bit bassy at moments (can be set by inserting foam into the reflex ports at the rear) but if you like bass its best.Here are the specifications for the Pioneer XW-SMA4-K 40W Hi-Fi Compact Wireless System:

I go through a whole lot of reviews prior to buying it. The pioneer xw-sma4-k 40w is definitely a thing. You should not adore much too much the bass.

I will not know a whole great deal about speakers but i know my ears and this item blew me absent. It was extremely basic to set up and the sound high quality was crystal very clear even at an really large volume. My only minor gripe was that i could not get the little distant to work – which is supplied with the product. Also the bass is a small significant when the quantity is cranked higher, having said that this is effortlessly remedied by stuffing a sock in the back again as encouraged by other reviewers. Aside from those two niggles i would say this is a top quality invest in, fantastic price and the great lover for any apple product (i often use my iphone 5s and mac air with it).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great product, well worth the money
  • AN ABSOLUTE MUST BUY
  • Wireless Speaker
  • Great speaker but very bass-heavy
  • Great sound, well-connected speaker

A little bit bass major but or else a fantastic answer in comparison to the speakers in my laptop computer. The most current program update presents radio playback by means of android/ios.

I was thinking about the sonos system, but was at some point sold on the sma 4, primarily because of to its great aid for android (htc to be a lot more unique) and immediate wireless alternative (as my house broadband is tremendous gradual. )connecting and established up took about 40 mins. Items get a bit baffling striving to determine out if i was going to use the speaker’s very own wireless, or hook it up to my residence broadband. I went for the latter, and at last managed. It is now obvious to all the pcs and telephones on our community, so you can stream any audio from any of the equipment, not just internet radio (as for each sonos)but as stated in advance of, the speaker can develop its very own wireless as very well if you did not have world-wide-web the place you have been, so your device can connect specifically to it and stream your information. Connecting to it from win media participant, my htc one particular x or the wife’s galaxy s3 is a breeze and normally takes seconds. I am happy with the high-quality. It is equivalent to the sonos five, despite the fact that there is a lot additional bass.

  1. Easy to setup and works flawlessly via airplay. Can be a bit bassy at times (can be fixed by inserting foam into the reflex ports at the rear) but if you like bass its perfect.

    Great speaker but very bass-heavy. This is a great speaker with one proviso, the woofer has ridiculously deep bass, and i do mean ridiculous. I, like other reviewers, resorted to putting a sock in the woofer at the back and now it sounds excellent. For the price it’s a great speaker and the wireless direct function works a treat for me. I deducted one star for the bass (smaller woofer channels would have been a lot better) but the speaker is great and has room-filling sound. You can choose to have it connect to your home network via a cable, or wirelessly; it also has an internal wireless transmitter that doesn’t require a network connection, this mode works just fine for me.

    Great sound, well-connected speaker. Good sound & volume, though as many have noted, as the volume increases it is a bit bass heavy, and not always in a good way. That said, it has great connectivity (wifi, ethernet, aux & ipod/iphone). The setup instructions (which unfolds to the size of a tablecloth) bear reading a number of times, to get it right. I found that writing yourself a postit or label explaining the meaning of the status lights helps a lot. It’s design, look and size are very good – it doesn’t shout “look at me” – it just does the job.

    Do not hesitate to buy this one. If like me, you have been looking around at wireless speakers, look no further. I was considering bose or sonos. Also looked at bang and olson and i have to say this one beats them all and the price is excellent. It was delivered quickly and had excellent e mail communication informing me of its delivery time. It is remarkably easy to set up and this comes from someone who is techno shy. Not too much base as some say. Within 5 minutes of setting it up my daughter one and if we can play them together i will buy myself a second one.

    A really nice sound to this speaker which was very easy to set up. Nice to be able to take this into any room in the house and it will work really well.

    I read a lot of reviews before buying it. The pioneer xw-sma4-k 40w is really something. Don’t love too much the bass.

    Connects brilliantly to my dnla server and easy to control from my tablet. Picks up wi-fi everywhere in my house. Sound is very good – maybe a little too much bass as others have suggested. It would be perfect if treble / bass control was available.

    Great product, well worth the money. Ordered monday lunch time, arrived 9. 30am next day, apart from the instuctions being on 1 large poster size sheet set up was easy. Connected ipod via usb port at the back, pressed buttons as instucted, pop appeared on ipod asking to share settings. Pressed allowed, and after a few seconds connection made. (for some reason i can’t get a solid blue light for the connection only flashing. However this hasn’t affected performance). A lot of comments made re being to much bass with this product. I am using the remote app to control and play itunes on the speaker. On itunes if you go into ‘view’ and then ‘show equaliser’ you can choose the setting which best suits your ears.
    • A bit bass heavy but otherwise a good solution compared to the speakers in my laptop. The latest software update gives radio playback via android/ios.

    I was considering the sonos system, but was eventually sold on the sma 4, mainly due to its excellent support for android (htc to be more specific) and direct wireless option (as my home broadband is super slow. )connecting and set up took about 40 mins. Things get a bit confusing trying to figure out if i was going to use the speaker’s own wireless, or hook it up to my home broadband. I went for the latter, and finally managed. It is now visible to all the computers and phones on our network, so you can stream any music from any of the devices, not just internet radio (as per sonos)but as mentioned before, the speaker can create its own wireless as well if you did not have internet where you were, so your device can connect directly to it and stream your files. Connecting to it from win media player, my htc one x or the wife’s galaxy s3 is a breeze and takes seconds. I am happy with the quality. It is comparable to the sonos 5, although there is a lot more bass.
