Ricco 450W 2, I am very pleased with this

Very capable but not user friendly. The good:basically, it does the job. It’s a huge improvement over the sound from my walker 32in tv and makes voices more realistic and clearer. Warm, full, much better for music and also much clearer at very low volumes. A bit soft sounding maybe, even at its best, but nice to listen to. Bluetooth for streaming music from a phone or tablet is a bonus. The bad:i had to send the first one back because it had no bluetooth. It also didn’t switch to standby after a period of no input as it’s supposed to. In the replacement unit these features are working. It comes supplied with two leads for connecting it to the tv.

This is a nice sound bar for tv/streamed media/bt. This is a nice sound bar for tv/streamed media/bt. It’s bigger than i expected – more the size of an old vhs player, but it sits under my pvr and looks fine. Note that not all the images in the description are actually of the ricco 450, the top image and the bottom 2 are the only ones that apply – the others (with the curved front) are of something else. I have it attached to a sony bravia using an optical cable and the sound is great – lots of volume. The tv is connected to my home network and streamed music from either the pc or network drive sounds good. Blue tooth works well, really easy to set up – just switch the mode on the neat little handset to bt and search for it on your phone or tablet. The handset has controls to pause and skip tracks via bt – a good feature. Other connections for dvd, pvr and coaxial. One star knocked off for a couple of reasons – if you pause music or tv/dvd for even a short length of time (eg – making a cup of tea), the unit will go into standby- you just have to remember to power it up again.

One thought on “Ricco 450W 2, I am very pleased with this

  1. Great sound – but the external power supply has failed after three months. Great sound – i’m using the optical cable connection from my samung tv – the difference between the tv audio and the ricco soundbase is incredible. I also use the ricco to stream audio from my galaxy s4 – bluetooth connection easy to set up. I am very impressed with the sound quality. However, the power supply has failed after three months and apparently the unit is not eligible for return so i am looking for where i can contact amazon regarding the replacement of the faulty power supply.
    • I am very pleased with this. I am very pleased with this. It is a quality item, very well made and it was easy to install; no problems at all. I connected it with the cable supplied, using the headphones socket on my sony bravia smart tv and the sound was utterly transformed. When i changed to an optical cable the quality was even better. The ricco is very good value for money and fits on to a shelf in the tv stand along with my dvd recorder and blue ray player; much better and less obtrusive than the sound bars which all seem to be about three feet long.

    All sorted- just in time to stop me returning it – connected via dvd player. Like some other reviewers this gave me grief until i got it sorted. I was convinced i couldn’t get this to work – i didn’t have a optical input on my telly the double jack plugs didn’t work in aux 1 or 2 – all i could do to get sound was connect it to the television headphone socket into the aux at the back – problem was a had to have some sound level from television – had max volume on the unit (30) and it switched off every 10 minutes. Just as i had it in my mind to return it when i saw i had jack points on my toshiba dvd free view recorder put red to red white to white and woke everyone up at midnight as i’d left sound level on maxnow it works perfectly – doesn’t switch off – i use sound level 5-6. I just have to watch stuff via my dvd free view – not a bad thing as if someone switches the t. They don’t alter my settings – just turn the telly volume up. The sound is really good – particularly on ‘action’ movies and i am now pleased with my purchase. Have given 3 stars – 1 star knocked off due to the useless ‘user’s manual a single small double sided piece of paper. And the website is no help either. Another star knocked off (from reading other reviews) we should not be put though this nonsense when we buy something. It’s a good product and deserves more after sales support from the manufacturer – amazon reviewers were more help – thank you guys.

    Sound quality really good for £80. Sound quality really good for £80. Remote is a little unresponsive from a distance.
    • It’s sounds great and was very easy to connect to my tv in the bedroom, just plugged it into the headphones socketthe box is very sturdy and looks a little like the old old video recorder machines in size.

    Really pleased with this product a massive improvement on the flat screen tv sound.
    • This has made all the difference to our viewing experience, the nasty, tinny sound that our otherwise brilliant new tv produced has been transformed into full and satisfying sound, we were listening to radio today and it’s nearly as good as our 30watt per channel sony hi-fi system. We have connected through the headphone socket for now, but intend to get an optical cable and assume that will give even better sound. Well pleased, would recommend.

    This soundbase is awesome for the price. This soundbase is awesome for the price. Great sound and bluetooth works well. I like the fact that it switches to standby if there is no sound for a period of time. (browsing menu too long or turn tv off). The sound itself is very good. Set up correctly, (i use lg’s optical sync), you can hear the surround effect and the depth of the bass. It has a rich quality that really surprised me. You can also adjust the treble / bass to your own taste. Like everyone else i have looked at all types of soundbars and seen the silly prices.
