Trevi XB 100 SD – soundbar speakers, A tad disappointed. The sound is quite muddled

Don’t let the size of this product put you off as it’s actually a very nice bit of kit. Very easy to use – load your music onto an sd card, pop it in the slot, turn it on, and press the play button. You can even plug your iphone (or other device) into it if it has a headphone port. The sound quality (despite this being rather small) is absolutely fantastic. I’d have to say this was the thing that stood out to me most – you wouldn’t expect such clear (and loud) sound from such a small product. Ideal purchase if you’re a tradesman/ builder, etc.

This has been chosen as a very simple device that can be used by people who are techno-phobic. I bought this for elderly housebound people who are not able to go to church. The sermons are recorded and are saved as mp3 files. I put these files on the memory card and it is easy for the elderly to use. No doubt there are many other applications but this is one. So for people who want to hear mp3 files on a simple inexpensive stand alone device, this is ideal.

This is a great system it comes in a nice protective velvet bag the sound quality is great even at high volumes. The only issues are it does not tell you what size sd card it supports(it couldn’t cope with 16gb but 2gb works fine) and it is difficult to get the card out. The red metal case is very attractive.

“A tad disappointed. The sound is quite muddled, Absolutely fantastic!, UPDATE 3 MONTHS LATER”

Cannot recommend this enough. 99 i wasn’t sure what to expect, but i am absolutely delighted. This speaker system looks much better in the flesh than in the photos, and has a reassuring weight to it. I got it in red, which again looks much brighter than on the pictures. It looks like it has cost so much more than just over £20. I use it as a speaker for playing music from my iphone and the sound is crystal clear. I couldn’t be happier – a great value product.

I wrote a negative review when i first tried it, but after receiving several messages from people advising me to check the format file type of the sd card (many thanks everyone), i did get it working. So no prizes to me for technical competence or patience. In fact this is a nice piece of kit. As i said in my original review, it is well manufactured, and feels good in the hand. The sound quality is also very good for the price and not at all bad. The person i gave it to uses it instead of his car stereo because i also gave him 16gb of music on a memory card. It’s not hi-fi but it’s not meant to be, and if that’s what you want, you’ll need to spend 20 times the price of the trevi. It’s small enough to carry around in its soft pouch and perfectly adequate for most daily domestic uses. No good for a party but to listen to music anywhere at home or to take with you in the car, on a picnic or day out, it’s perfect.

I am so impressed with this speaker,i have been searching for ages for something i can pop a sd card in that i have pre loaded with music or audio books to help brighten up my rather boring working day. After trying a couple of other mobile speakers which were pretty disappointing, quality and sound wise, i decided to try one last time. Quality of sound is absolutely amazing for such a small speaker,it has no trouble filling a large room volume wise,and the build quality is excellentonly one small niggle is it can be a bit fiddly getting the sd card out but on the whole i am chuffed to bits.

I originally thought this machine didn’t work, however, i now realise that the fault was mine and not the speakers. I hadn’t ‘ripped’ my files to make them mp3 compatible and the in built mp3 player couldn’t read the files, hence no sound. Now i have rectified my mistake, it is working like a dream. Would recommend, but please make sure you change your files to mp3 files and not cda files to ensure it works.
