Roth Audio VA4 Pair of Active Speakers – – Amazing compact speaker

I read about these speakers in a vinyl-lovers magazine and they gave them a high rating. I was about to buy a new record turntable to play my old vinyl, and what i also liked the idea of, was that these speakers have a built-in `phono` amplifier, so no need to purchase one costing an extra £60 minimum. My rega planar 1 turntable (£249) plugs straight into the main speaker via the rca connection cables from the turntable, links to the other speaker via the cable provided, and bingo, great sound. The remote handset allows volume, bass & treble to be altered, and has wide latitude with both base & treble. I have mine floor mounted, using the small rubber feet provided in order to avoid vibration. Neat and compact, don`t be fooled by their small size, they pack a punch. Nice and loud in my medium-sized room, no need to mount on stands. The fabric front covers can be removed for a more hi-tec scientific look. If you plug it all in and have no sound, remember to press the volume control on the back of the main speaker inwards in order to activate. Great value, highly recommended.

Easy to set up with my daughter’s new audio technica at-lp5 deck and the sound quality is excellent. Nice that these are bluetooth speakers so my daughter can also play music through them via her iphone.

Brilliant sound, very pleased and connected straight to turntable with no issues.

I had previously given these 5 starts but i have noticed similar issues that other people have experienced. When in bluetooth mode there is a loud crackle noise that can only be muted if you put your bluetooth device on top of the main speaker which renders bluetooth mode useless. For me it is not a complete deal breaker as i bought these for my rega planar 1 record player. However the remote is also made of very cheap materials and buttons do not work properly as mentioned in another review. At this price-point you would simply expect better and i was left disappointed because of these issues.

Impressed with speakers just what we wanted for our record player.

Were for temporary until i got my full set up. Got my turtable playing through it and galaxy s7 on bluetooth. Might keep it as permanent setup. Great sound for small speakers.

  • Product Has Quality Control Issues
  • Superb sound, compact, no Phono box needed!
  • Smart, compact and VERY loud speakers

Completely fantastic sound, i love them.

Brilliant piece of kit, impressive sound output and quality for the size of the speakers. Because of internal amplifier, there is no necessity to fiddle around with additional cables and connections allowing a very quick set up with what ever devices are being used and then getting on with the simple pleasure of listening to the depth of sound that is produced. I can’t imagine there is much that cannot be connected for audio input, but as everything i use from my mobile devices to ‘vinyl’ works , then i’m not bothered to investigate further .

Just picked these up to provide a simple solution for a second home to listen to vinyl and bluetooth streaming, and was actually quite pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. Don’t expect the warmth and depth of expensive speakers driven by a high end tube amp and you will be very happy. Sound reproduction is natural, crisp and clear. Only reason i didn’t give them 5* is the remote quality, but they probably deserve it for everything else. Im not sure you could put together a set of speakers, phone-amp and amp for 2-3x the cost and sound as good.

Considering how compact these speakers are, the sound is clear, crisp and can get very loud (if you want/need a decent volume). I bought to connect my old turntable (as they have a very useful phono pre-amp built-in) and the records sound better than ever through them. Bonus to be able to connect tv, bluetooth devices, i-pod and basically any other piece of equipment as well (cd, tapedeck etc) using the variety of inputs. (i had only one tiny problem during set up – i didn’t press the volume button in as you need to do to activate the audio connection – it isn’t entirely explicit in the user manual, but i wouldn’t mark it down because of that though. )it was brillliant getting rid of my poor old speakers, i-pod dock, external amp and various leads and now i just have a very simple but effective set up. Wish i had got them earlier.

Great speakers (all of the glowing reviews on the internet back this up) for what i need. Mine do have an issue of electrical noise being audible at low volume from new. Similar to cellphone noise you can get from audio equipment even though my phone is not close by. Started off only when bluetooth is connected but yesterday it became evident in other input modes too.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Simply brilliant for the price. Punch above their size as far as sound is concerned too, and i’ve previously owned bigger speakers.

Having had a couple of issues with feedback paricularly on bluetooth mode, the customer service team at roth were absolutely brilliant. They paid for direct postage back, supplied new speakers and were incredibly quick and friendly. I now have a fantastic looking and sounding multi purpose set of speakers.

Speakers itself in total- design, sound – perfect, but one thing – remote controller – from the very beginning it was working hardly, you had to press hard buttons to do something, and finally after 1. 5 year it stopped working completely – it’s enoying i know i can adjust volume from the back big button, but bass and treble – there’s no other option apart with the remote controller to do it, so i can’t enjoy listening my records fully. Tried to contact roth ten times – nobody replied to my e-mails how to get replacement for the remote controller.

Superb audio quality at this price. Top class technical support.

Great speakers, fantastic clear sound. Ability to connect to a turntable is excellent. Paired with a suitable subwoofer and they are great for films, gaming and music.

Fantastic speakers for anyone looking for a simple but great quality setup for a turntable. Having bluetooth is a added bonus for a cheaper set of speakers.

High quality active speakers. The sound is clear and crisp with decent bass for small speakers. They pair really quickly with my ipad and the remote is useful too. There’s plenty of volume on tap. If you read the reviews of any or roth’s products, it’s easy to see why this company has such a good reputation and this influenced me in choosing roth.

Roth Audio OLI C30 5 – Plenty of bang for your buck

Disappointed that i did not receive the 5. 25′ that i expected, i got a 4′ model. I have got over my disappointment when i connected up and played my first movie, great sound really pleased with this great speaker.

For the price it is a pretty good speaker, crisp sound and clear dialogue.

  • A Beautiful Center Speaker (and some tips on common surround sound problems).
  • Good sound, nice an petite, nicely finished.
  • Plenty of bang for your buck

Good value speaker system (i have as part of 5. 0 system with roth oli ra1).

Plenty of bang for your buck. The speaker is excellent itself. Crisp high frequencies and a nice rounded low frequency. I run it through a sony receiver with 4 oli ra1’s and a kh30 subwoofer. The reproduction of my music is clear and precise. I’d recommend roth audio speakers to anymore. Good speakers for the money.

Features of Roth Audio OLI C30 5.25 inch Centre Channel Speaker – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Stylish and sound superb centre speaker
  • Finished in Matt black
  • Magnetic Grill

A beautiful center speaker (and some tips on common surround sound problems). . This roth centre/voice speaker is truly impressive. The top end is clear, and the mid is meaty- but where it really surprises is the bottom end or base frequencies. It seems to hold its own in a full 7 set surround series with a yamaha dsp and a technics (jbl) slave sub-base woofer. The overall sound is very coherent. You will need to adjust your room carefully, and as a little tip- make sure that you set the delay both on your pro-logic and your output device (such as a smart tv) because otherwise there will be too much echo caused by the out-of-phase signals. My samsung tv sets at around 70ms – i don’t know why this is, but i’m guessing that the sound is decoded faster than the picture. You will then need to choose your best dsp options, and mine works best in either spectacle, pop, or plain dolbe. Do not listen to anything that anyone says about hdmi cables, it’s mainly bunkum to get you to spend £50 on a gold cable.I’m using a 10 metre optical cable with no loss of signal whatsoever.

Good value speaker system (i have as part of 5. 0 system with roth oli ra1).

Good sound, nice an petite, nicely finished. . Smaller than i expected (yes i know there are product dimensions i can look at) but this worked well for me. Massive upgrade on the flat panel kef i had before but not the biggest of sounds. The magnetic (fixingless) way the cover is held in place is fantastic. I just wish that they would put the bass ports on the front as most people will be mounting this very close to the wall under the screen.

Roth Bar 3 High-Power TV Soundbar, Good sound, interferes with Xbox WIFI.

Fantastic solution and services.

This sound bar is excellent for the cost. It is extremely effortless to set up and it offers added depth of audio to my sharp 42′ flat screen tv. I have attempted it with diverse varieties of media and it presents great good quality sound on each individual event. The only challenge i have encountered is setting the clock and as still have had any success.

Roth Bar 3 High-Power TV Soundbar with On-Board DSP and Wireless Subwoofer

  • Touch Sensitive Front Panel
  • Wireless operation
  • Wall mount / Table Top Mount

Good audio shame about the electricity supply guide. Pleaased with the seem good quality for new music and paired effortlessly with my samsung cellphone for streaming audio. Sounds a little bit odd when looking at usual tv but great for action movies with heaps heading on. The wireless bass speaker sits nicely in the corner and has a fantastic deep tone. The only down facet is the size of the cable on the power provide. Seriously four foot of cable actually is not long more than enough. It may be okay for a tv on a stand but wall mounted it is entirely ineffective.

Awesome and sleek, draw back, the subwoofer has to be really near to the principal bar. The wifi card will have to be a truly affordable one particular in this unit. Was not the cheapest device both. It pulls apart my individual mantra of, not, buying the most highly-priced, or the least expensive, but somewhere in the middle???my assistance, find a different a person, less expensive or dearer, if it’s for your major tv. Games console, spare place tv or a n other this would be high-quality.

Roth bar 3 bought november seven 2013. I purchased this centered on the sleek glimpse and bluetooth features and quite very good opinions it experienced acquired on audio/hifi evaluation web sites. Nicely packaged and no destruction to box on arrival. Now this is my sincere feeling. It looks superior specifically the subwoofer which you can place everywhere because of to its bluetooth wireless connection. The bar by itself is relatively thin in depth, easy to in shape and aligned very well with my lg 46in sensible tv. The bluetooth pairs and connects truly swiftly way too. Seem is really good with extremely very clear voice definition separated from other seem, songs and bass. Bass gets a tad distorted from the sub at high volume, but this isn’t really unusual on mid electricity, mid price tag models like this one particular. I like the way you can switch off the menu screen on the bar as properly so it doesn’t distract although watching tv.

Roth Bar 3 High-Power TV Soundbar with On-Board DSP and Wireless Subwoofer : Generally happy with the soundbar, my two moans are that the supplied remote control only seems to work if you are standing exactly 4 feet square and central in front of the soundbar. Just doesnt seem to work when sitting down / further away from it. It would also have been nice if roth supplied a code so that the soundbar volume could be controlled by a sky remote control. **edited to add that i just e-mailed roth about the remote and they replied in under a minute offering to send a replacement.

Roth Audio OLI RA3 5 :

Nice pair of speakers and really good sound for the price i paid but amazon are selling at £179 for one speaker at a so called bargain price but you can get these for £179 for a pair on other sites come on amazon play fair. All speakers should come as a pair i think it’s misleading the consumer, it’s like buying a car with a wheel missing a bit pointless.

Brought from amazon thinking it would be a pair ,£286 as elsewhere they are @ £299. I did purchase them from another retailer,and these speakers work very well indeed midrange is brill bass has plenty,if u like more buy the ra4,bass will let u know when reach max it crackles. Play tracks like nivana_come as u are. ,they r in your front room,when sound up high. Superb all rounder crystal clear even at their max. Quality look @ sound truly fantastic and at a price that u can’t go wrong.

Speaker looked great but it’s no use having only 1.

Roth Sub Zero TV Soundbar, too old for bass

Bought this from richer sounds and i must admit its fantastic. For the price, i was expecting something average, but i’m blown away with how good it is. I tested transformers and the dark knight rises, it sounded incredible.

This has made a fab change to the sound quality of my tv. The sound wasn’t that bad but a bit flat. Total improvement but obviously doesn’t give a complete true surround sound.

Roth Sub Zero TV Soundbar

  • FX Processing
  • Built in Sub
  • HD Amplifiers

Bought as an early christmas present to my self as thesound from our thin tv was awful. Very nice sound, clear, crisp, and now with some bass. Nice connections,and have used it with my ipad listening to musuc , sounds very good. Nice heavy feel to the item, a quality built product.

Only worth it with optical connection. I did all my research and listened to one in-store but i was disappointed at first when i got it home. Maybe my lg tv has pretty good sound to start with but using the basic audio leads the tv and the soundbar needed to both be on full volume to hear and i wasnt convinced the sound was any better, in fact some spoken word programmes like sky news seemed worse. One of the two soundbar sound effect options seemed particularly disappointing. I am pretty good with tv boxes and connections but i had a frustrating hour after opening the box, not helped by the fuse in the plug provided being blown. Fortunately before packing it up for return and refund i remembered the optical audio lead that was surplus from my audio set up and connected the soundbar to my tv using that and now i am very pleased. Sky films, us action tv series like ncis and blu ray discs all sound much better, indeed so does sky news. With this set up i can leave the tv at normal volume (approx 25%) and switch off the soundbar if i want to just listen the old way or click the soundbar remote to try out the 2 soundbar effect options and quickly decide what is best for what i am watching. I can not understand why anyone would want to use this soundbar without using an optical lead unless your tv is really awful, if i was selling these i would only sell them for optical cable use otherwise i would feel i was cheating my customers.

I purchased the older model as i didn’t want the faff of the wireless sub woofer, and i had seen some reviews that said the sound from the sub was pretty varied (it could suddenly boom during speech, etc)i have tested sound from cable input from a pc sound card, and that was fine. I have also tested hdmi connections to a panasonic tv, and then optical cable output to the soundbar. This works best, and sound from a pc, and xbox connected to the tv via hdmi outputs really well to the soundbar. Even better, my tv can play network files, and if these are sent bitsream to the soundbar it can handle all the different audio codecs that i can throw at it. Sound is good, there’s plenty of levels to crank it up to, although no level 11. I think it is best suited to a small to medium room, i think it might struggle in a really large room.

Roth Sub Zero TV Soundbar : Excellent product if your expectations are realistic. Having previously tried a sharp ht-sb250 soundbar and found it seriously lacking in sound quality i thought i’d try the roth sub zero. I’m driving it from the analogue line output of my set-top box and haven’t tried any of the other inputs. The sound quality is excellent in comparison with the sharp product, it’s natural, balanced and relatively beefy and substantial. I have the bass set to +1 i think so nothing too excessive. Something that doesn’t even get fully mentioned in the product’s manual is that it powers up when a signal is detected on the selected input and powers down 15 minutes after the signal disappears. This means i don’t ever have to use the supplied remote, i adjust the volume with the set-top box remote and the soundbar turns on and off as required. This is in no way a substitute for a real surround sound system and it was never going to be at this price but if you just want to improve the sound of your tv for normal programmes then i’d say this is more than adequate. All in all i’m very pleased indeed with this product, it works a treat and sounds very good for such a low price.

Roth Audio OLI KH30 8 inch Active Sub Woofer : Great for the money

For an 8 inch speaker this subwoofer is truly thunderous. I’ve got it running with 5 other roth audio speakers in a 5. My neighbours aren’t too happy with my purchase as it threatens the integrity of the building. Truly incredible performance. Roth audio are a very good purchase. I would recommend them to anybody. Very helpful staff at roth audio as well. Good after purchase service.

“Great for the money, Thunder in a small box. Boom!!!, is better finished, incredibly well constructed and outstanding value for “

Awesome sub woofer, have recommended it to other amazon shoppers.

I struggled to find any reviews for this product but they are a uk company with some good reviews of their other speakers so i thought i’d take the plunge. This is replacing a b&w pv1 which expired (with a strange ‘tick tick tick’ noise) and although it doesn’t look as cool i’ve been impressed by the sound quality given that it is 1/4 of the price. It is used in conjunction with a yamaha ysp-4100 sound bar and with the appropriate settings (basically passing all the. All in all this is a great buy at the price. Build quality and sound are fantastic for the money. Definitely give it a try if you are looking for a budget sub with some oomph.

Roth OLI POWA5 Active Pair Of Monitor Speakers With Multiple Connectivity Options – Fantastic Speakers

These speakers are the future for the audio entertainment. Bluetooth, 2 digital optical input, 1 rca, 1 aux jack 3. Built is top quality, sound is on pair with same speakers on same price range but you have all the connections you need.

Arrived quickly sound good look good, husband thinks he is young again take up not too much space defiantly worth the money.

These speaker are great,i think just the right size for a medium room, has plenty of volume and rear interconnections, also bluetooth. Connected straight away from my ipod touch, you can even connect by usb. Worth the money and highly recommend.

Great value but read whole review. Roth oli powa-5 review(3 months of continuous use)overall 4/5appearance 5/5speakers look absolutely great, gloss black finish also available in red. Perfect for home cinema/entertainment centre. Look modern but would also look great in a retro backdrop. Sound 3/5 overall 5/5 for price rangenumbers aside these speakers sound good especially for the price. Not good enough to provide a wow factor but good enough to justify £200. I would describe the sound as all round good, they are equally crisp as the bass is powerful however there is a subwoofer output that may come in handy when watching cinematic sequences or some drum and bass. Functionality 3/5 (would be 5/5 if they were not made redundant without the controller and requires a 3. 5 output)does not require amp. These stand-mount speakers do not have holes in which to be mounted on a stand.

Roth OLI POWA5 Active Pair Of Monitor Speakers With Multiple Connectivity Options – Black

  • Active loudspeaker
  • Bluetooth functionality allowing you to stream music from your Bluetooth device
  • Connectivity – 1x pair RCA analogue connectors , 1x 3.5mm stereo jack input , 2x Optical inputs and a Bluetooth receiver

The speakers have a great sound. Couple of things i would have liked: 1) connectivity on bluetooth is uninterrupted, which has not been the case & 2) as i placed my order from france i got uk plugs which i needed to replace.

These speakers do everything i wanted, multiple inputs including two optical ins but apart from the technical capabilities the speakers have excellent audio quality. Speakers are sometimes a matter of personal taste, but i have high end speakers from mission, ae, roland and these are just as good if not better. All speakers vary in their acoustic properties but these have great range, power and acoustic tracks sound brilliant which is a great test for speakers. Bass cranks up nicely too and i have connected a sub woofer to the sub output but the bass is good enough for music and the sub adds dimension for movies etc. I have them connected to an apple airport express via the optical input so i can use my itunes library and also my samsung tv using srs txt virtual surround via the other optical input. My ipod is connected via the 3. 5 stereo jack and you can use your iphone via bluetooth or any other audio bluetooth device for that matter. An email enquiry to roth regarding magnetic shielding was answered the next working day, so their customer service is good too and they are a british independent company. And they are magnetically shielded as you would expect.
