Trust 21046 Asto PC Soundbar Speaker – Reasonable speakers

My laptop sounds like its all strained through a bag of sand with odd high frequencies, so the sound from this bar was a delight and wonderous in comparison.

Bought for a kitchen tv, just the right size and capable of producing a meaty sound with the bass speaker turned up. Very happy with this purchase.

Great alternative to my old defunct 5. Good tone, volume and looks. Here are the specifications for the Trust 21046 Asto PC Soundbar Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 12 W peak power (6 W RMS)
  • Rich stereo sound from compact speaker, to fit below any PC monitor
  • Large, illuminated volume control button
  • Headphone and microphone connection conveniently on the front side
  • USB-powered: No wall power needed

Should have been tighter and bassyer for the size of the speaker boxes :0(.

Well it arrived in a very large box way too big for the speaker and that amazon they love doing thing on a grand scale, this is my first experience of having a soundbar and boy i am so glad i bought this one, i know you can get expensive ones with lots of bells and whilsles but i just wanted it for my computer the other ones died the other day, the sound on trust asto is very good you will not regret buying this sound bar, its very nice and fits just right under the monitor, the downside is the cable is very short, so people at trust take note make the cable longer or add an extention to the cable. All round its a nice clear sound, worth the money any day. 10/10 for sound 10/10 for build quality 10/10 the brand.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • too big for the speaker and that Amazon they love doing thing on a grand scale
  • Perfect for the price
  • Bought on a Warehouse deal as well

Happy with the purchase, good quality speakers.

Doesn’t feel the heaviest or the best quality, but then the price is low and the sound is fine. It’s powered by usb which was a plus.

Gorgeous sound – reasonably deep and powerful. Relatively unobtrusive (i place mine behind laptop easily), and no big tangle of wires that you’d get with separate speakers and power adaptor. Just one usb connection for power, and one 3. 5mm jack for sound from laptop. And most importantly the sound really is quite impressive and has a real nice quality to it. Nice big illuminated volume on/off dial.

Nice and small, fits under my monitor. Bass response is good enough for day to day use, however, if you want better bass response i would opt for the soundbar with subwoofer.

Got this for my new pc, i love it, great quality completely happy with it.

Trust astro soundbar: very impressed indeed. Can’t believe the sound quality comes without external power, just usb2. Very much better than the speakers built into my monitor. And so much prefer having a big volume knob on the front – much easier than controls hidden away on cables or on screen. Really very, very good indeed and for £25 a complete steal.

I didnt want big speakers, i just wanted something simple, it fits in the middle of my 3 monitor setup, great to use. Looks very cool with the power / volume rocker that lights up and the sound quality is amazing for the price you pay, its missing a bit of bass but your saving money. Would definitely recommend 100%.

For it’s size and price point you couldn’t really get a better sounding set up than this.

I bought this just primarily for my pc nothing else and i am very impressed. First its easy to set up is simple , it’s fits lovely on my desk and it’s very loud . I must admit i would never use this speaker for a normal tv to me it’s a pc speaker first as last but for my need it’s 10/10.

A great little soundbar for the price, much better than my monitors built in speakers for sure and it can get to a pretty high level. The headphone and microphone jacks on the front are a nice touch as well. The only downside is the sound can be a little tinny but for less than £30 it’s nothing i didn’t expect.

The sound quality is not amongst the best but this is a very good solution for adding sound to a pc monitor. It is powered by the pc via usb and so switches off when the pc shuts down. It is also compact, fits under the monitor and takes up less desk space than separate speakers.

This is a good soundbar for the price, i like the front volume control for easy use. Plug and play no problems on win 10. Sound is good not amazing but i don’t think small soundbar will every compete with good speaker but it is much tidier on small space and good enough for small room.

Sound is good for the £25 price. . The leads on this one are a metre long. Hooked up to the pc for audio and streaming music – sits perfectly under a big monitor and does everything i need it too.

Bought for our desktop, it was easy to setup and the sound was great for the little speaker it is.

Bought to replace failed pc speakers. Was a little concerned by reviews stating the cables were “short”, so checked the trust web site and found they were 1. 4m long, which is more than enough. Nice unit, very simple to use. Plug in the audio and mic in the usual 3. 5mm jacks, and the usb cable for power. And that’s itsound quality is nice. Not too much bass, but enough. Full volume is plenty loud enough. Build quality seems good, and the on/off/volume knob feels like it’s damped in some way.

Product as described, good for the price, but due to being powered off a usb port (5. 5 volts) it was not loud enough. Ok for a bedroom running off a laptop, or tablet, but not great for a large room.

    The trust 21046 asto soundbar took me by surprise. I just wanted something basic for my pc, but i was very impressed with: 1. The size of the soundbar – compact, yet of a respectable size to house decent components that can deliver performance; 2. The quality of sound was much superior to what i was expecting for a compact design and this price range, with rich sound that is not struggling to reach a pleasant level of volume.

    • Quite cheap, the sound is good but the product casing is quite flimsy. I had to click it back together when i received it.

  7. Overall good product, fits in nicely under pc monitor. Nice stylish design don’t however be expecting exceptional sound quality because it isnt, for the price it’s good and works well if you just need sound for watching videos etc.

      • Good value for money but doesn’t come with a lead for us with a laptop. A small cheap item but is inconvenient if you need to use it immediately.

    Not happy with this product. I used it only 2-3 times, as the sound quality is not what i expected and the size is not handy.

    Originally quite happy with the purchase but after a few short weeks the 3. Anything plugged in will create either an insane amount of feedback or just not transmit audio/mic. Unfortunately i cant return it any more to amazon. Would try another if the manufacturer would take it back and send one.

    Great quality of sound, maybe not the neatest of speakers but that is a small grumble.

    The bluetooth connection on this thing is terrible. Laptop or phone can be less than a metre away and the connection drops continuously. This is a real shame because everything else about this speaker is decent.

    The product was longer than i expected, it’s a little bigger than my laptop, which i’m happy with. The green led on the sound control really sets it off, especially since all my other gadgets are green led. It’s lighter than it looks but since its usb powered this will be great for portability. I bought this to use behind my monitor when my last speakers broke (after 3 months) and it’s perfect, it also looks nice from all angles. As for performance it’s self, easy to set up, plug in the usb and the green and pink wires into the back or your pc or laptop and your good to go. Also comes with 2 additional cables, one red and a red and white connector, haven’t taken these out of the packet so not sure what theyre for yet, presumably a tv system?. Anyway sound was clear and not at all tinny, the base could do with some improvement but for the price and size it works very well. It’s not super loud but perfect for my office space and loud enough to be heard when getting ready for a night out. Over all i would buy this again, as long as it holds up to the test of time, will update in a few months.
