I recently purchased another set of speakers and instead of the Homespot/Amphony combo which I am reviewing below I decided to go with the Amphony 300 which integrates the Bluetooth receiver and power amplifier into a single tiny unit. Gets rid of a lot of cable clutter. Both the Homespot setup and Amphony work great.
My original review:
I have been debating whether to buy a pair of cordless speakers for my patio. There is a flood of models on the market and after testing a few of those I instead opted for the Homespot NFC Bluetooth receiver which I have connected to an Amphony 200 mini amp and a pair of Klipsch bookshelf speakers. Here is why:
1) The sound quality of almost all Bluetooth speakers that I tested does not compare to the sound of my bookshelf speakers - not even by a longshot.
2) The sound quality coming from my Homespot NFC and my Amphony 200 is excellent. Obviously it is only as good as the source material. Most of the music that I stream is compressed in some fashion. Depending on the bitrate and compression format, it sounds either very good or less decent. However, this wireless combination rocks.
3) The range that I can get is a lot better than the range of some of these Bluetooth speakers. I can get around 50 feet of range depending on what I use as the transmitter. My Samsung Galaxy phone has the highest range. I also have a Bluetooth USB dongle which on the other hand has horrible range (less than 15 feet).
4) This receiver along with the amp is really inexpensive.
5) Both the receiver and the mini amp are small. I actually have the receiver stacked on the amp itself so it stores away nicely.
6) I can use any speaker to connect to the amp plus my mini amps pumps out really loud volume, a lot more than any of the Bluetooth speakers that I have tried without distorting.
So thumbs up for the Homespot NFC.
I have had the 'HomeSpot NFC-enabled Bluetooth Audio Receiver for Sound System' for about three weeks now and so far it has worked great. My main reason for buying this unit is to stream music from my laptop or my android tablet to my home stereo unit and to be able to control the music remotely without having to go back and forth to the stereo. I will let you know about my experience so far.
I've connected the HomeSpot to my home stereo unit with the included phone to RCA adapter. Upon plugging in the unit to the power supply (also included), my laptop quickly found the new device and connected easily. Since I've kept the HomeSpot attached to the power supply, each time I power on my laptop, it automatically connects to the HomeSpot. It connects just as easily to my android tablet. Distance wise, I've moved about 30 feet away from the HomeSpot and I have yet to hear any loss in sound quality. So far, I haven't had any problems with Bluetooth connections.
I don't claim to be an audiophile but I do like music and enjoy and expect good quality sound. I have been impressed with the quality of sound that comes from my stereo using the HomeSpot. I've yet to experience static or any loss in sound quality. Basically, I have not noticed any deterioration or difference in sound quality compared to devices that I have connected directly to the stereo unit.
The HomeSpot is a small square device with a decent looking exterior. It includes all the connections needed to connect the device to a stereo receiver; basically, the phono to rca adapter and the power supply to keep it powered on. It connects easily and consistently.Read more ›
However, when I tested both of them, the Homespot audio quality blew away the Poweradd. The audio is almost as good as a direct connection, which is saying a lot for Bluetooth. The bass is tight and the highs are crisp and clear. I'll use the Homespot for my home office audio and the Poweradd for my garage audio system.
The Homespot also paired quicker at set-up and pairs very quickly afterward.
The Homespot was twice as much as the Poweradd but is well worth the few extra bucks.
I also bought the "Samyo SMSL SA-36A Pro 20W*2 Hifi TPA3118D2DAP Digital Stereo Amplifier AMP with 24V Power Supply" at the same time. It sounds awesome with the Homespot Bluetooth.
