Top positive review
A good value for money.
31 March 2019
I'm writing this review after 1 day of extensive testing and speaker burn in (though they didn't specify time duration for speaker burn in, I ran the speaker for over 15 hours, and, being an audiophile, I understood burn in was successful.)
Let me now come to the main review.
First I'll talk about the Subwoofer.
Upon unboxing and playing my first song, I found that the bass was good, but a bit hard. I'm not a fan of hard bass, but I like soft, but very deep, ground shaking bass. It was clearly absent here. But still I liked it overall.
What I didn't like was the build quality. There was some distortion in the subwoofer when I played songs at high volume. Sounds of vibrating particles were present, grill was loosely fitted, and air leak was present, which is not good.
Overall, the enclosure wasnt tight enough.l to sustain high volumes. I had to manually open and re glue and seal the air gaps, after which it sounded decent.
Coming to the satellites, I felt there is lack of mid tones.
Sound coming from the satellites sounded like a big mobile phone speaker, quality was definitely not that good. But after burn in, it sounded somewhat okayish.
I added another set of speaker with a separate amplifier to enhance the mids and low mids.
Listening to the sound, and on detailed analysis, I found some gaps in playback.
(By powerful, I don't mean its loud, but powerful means having depth in the sound, across all frequencies)
Frequency ranges from 20-120 Hz was good.
Frequency range from 120-250 was somewhat absent or not clear,
Frequency range from 250-750 was not powerful enough.
Frequency range from 750-2.5k was okay.
Frequency range from 2.5k to 7.5k sounded good.
And frequency range above 14k was unaudible. (I tested that with microphone, still unable to catch.
But at this price, I cant complain much.
Overall, if you are a kind of person, buying this for house parties, having a tight budget, and like a somewhat distorted, but V shaped sound signature, go for it.
(P.s. I own another Portable Bluetooth speaker, Zoook Jazz Blaster. The sound quality of that is far better, especially when it comes to lower mids and highs.)
I'm planning to customize it and add it with a splitter cable aux to this setup)
