Sony GTKXB7R : Excellent sound quality

Item bought from a high street retailer, for a small home gym. I required a single speaker, bluetooth to play music from htc phone, good bass, no wire clutter. Demo model in the store didn’t give it justice as i was looking for a good bass level, and this can’t be felt on a steel shelf surrounded by other speakers, staff member insisted it’ll do the job in a normal size room on the floor. Bass is very good, as you expect from a normal surround woofer. Even with it off it’s impressive. Lights are annoying, so left them off. Connects to phone out the box. Clarity is very good, not a 7. 1 surround, so don’t expect it. Very loud, and i can see it being a good use for house parties, birthdays etc. Some mentioned that it’s got lag when used with dj equipment. I don’t think it’s built for live djing but to just play music from a single output source is good enough, not like your typical marshall speakers etc. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a single speaker with bluetooth connectivity, and good bass.

Solid sound, just a little overpriced as most sony products are.

Excellent item out standing sound.

Good speaker,good sound,nice light effect.

Superb bluetooth speaker ,the lights,the sound. Compare this for the same price as a sonos or bose hand sized speaker. No comparison its loud,big and the lights r amazing. The sony app to go with it works well controls all other music apps and has loads of light settings from off through to rave. Wont regret buying hope it lasts.

Should get the dancing started. This sony gtk-xb5 compact high power one box music system is ideal for social gatherings at home as it combines both a solid audio output together with lighting effects including strobe. The speaker is designed for use in horizontal or vertical orientation and has a sensor to optimise the stereo in either setup. In vertical mode the unit measures 524mm high x 262mm wide x 273mm deep. Audio output comes from two 130mm woofers and two 50mm tweeters and the unit weighs in at 7kg – this speaker is mains powered only. The gtk-xb5 is constructed from plastic and mdf inside with integral handles making it easy to move around – the build quality is good and the unit feels as though it will survive the rough and tumble of being carted around to parties etc. There’s the option of bluetooth connectivity (with nfc) or audio line input. Control is either via the built in control panel or more comprehensively via the sony songpaul app (although it’s name sounds more like a karaoke app) which is available for ios or android but not windows phone. You can also daisy chain additional speakers with this one. I’ve been using this sony speaker for a few days now and really like it.

Loud enough to annoy your neighbours. If your keen for a rave, this is a must have speaker. Big up sonyloud enough to annoy your neighbours. Bom lights that just bring the room alivvveeeeee.

My daughter and her friends love this speaker. The bass, the synchronised light show, the portability and ease of use have made it top of the party invite list.

The first thing to say about this speaker enclosure is that it is huge. But it has a huge party sound too. Unless you have an awful lot of parties, you’ll probably want to hang on to the packaging, because the snappily-titled sony gtk-xb7 uses up an awful lot of space when not in use. If you think of the monitor/foldback speakers musicians have on stage during concerts so they can hear their performance, well, this thing is about that size. There are a couple of carry-handles, and it’s not too heavy, so it can be moved about easily by one person. It can be placed vertically or horizontally – the speaker automatically detects its orientation and turns on the appropriate speakers to give a stereo output. It you’re placing it horizontally you’ll get a better sound by placing it on a table, rather than the floor. There are three tweeters (only two of which are active at any time, to give a stereo output) and two decent mid/bass speakers, which coupled with a large reflex port give a creditable bass output, which you can optionally boost in software. The power supply has a small cooling fan – this enclosure really means business.

I absolutely love this machine. I absolutely love this machine. Not sure the neighbours do tho. Its loud and clear and i haven’t experienced any of the latency some of the other reviews mentioned. Can’t wait to test this at the party this weekend but reckon it wil do well.

Great speaker, disappointed by the large latency though, makes life very difficult if you’re a dj.

Absolutely love it, clear sound and great bass. Even when full volume the sound quality does not crackle or deteriorate.

Pretty loud but very unrefined and boomy bass. Maybe i’m not the market it’s designed for. Upgraded my sonos s5s instead.

Bought this as a present – sound is really good and it’s a definite party starter.

Great sound was the talk of the party.

Friends wouldn’t let me take it home. I bought one for christmas and took it to a friends new year eve party as the sole source of music – my friends loved it and demanded to buy it off me the following day – so left it with them and bought another one the very next day.
