Product Description

This is one cute screamer. Small enough to fit into your everyday bag, the Ivation Portable Mini Amplifier gets its name from the surprising quality and clarity of the sound it outputs. A specially voiced 4-inch speaker is mounted inside its rugged enclosure for detailed responsiveness to any genre of music. From smooth jazz in a smoky setting to hard-hitting pop music in a college dorm room, this amplifier never misses a beat. We've made sure that the user retains control of the sound, if only for you techies and audiophiles out there. Three dials let you precision-sculpt your music. The volume knob serves as a basic gain control, with more power pushed into the speaker cone as you crank it towards number 10. Individual Treble and Bass knobs allow your inner music snob some fierce tinkering. So how do you power this 6-inch-tall micro rocker? Well, if you happen to have 4 standard AA batteries, your can take your Ivation Portable Mini Amplifier just about anywhere. Otherwise, simply plug a USB cable into the power receptacle on the amplifier's back and hook the other end into your computer. We even included a USB to AC outlet adapter so you can shake the walls with your music.

Customer Reviews

The sound quality is pretty good.

Now the end keeps my phone secure and also the back and bottom of the slot that has the small piece of double sided tape which keeps my phone more secure.
Daisy
Good because it has a bass and treble adjustment.

I first spotted this box last Christmas while looking around the local guitar shop. As an axman I've owned my share of speakers. Some have gone the distance while others have been dogs. Even the pricier systems can come back to bite. That said I rolled the dice on this Ivation product and came away pleasantly surprised. These are my thoughts.

Out of the box this Ivation mini amp/speaker makes quite a statement. Measuring 5" H x 4" W x 3.5" D and weighing in at a little over a pound, it does take up some real estate. The speaker kit is packed with a generous 48" micro USB power cable, AC adapter, 8" audio cable and instructions. It can also power up via (4) AA batteries which are not included. Instructions are basic.

I really like the fact that all the controls are mounted on the front of the box. The power switch is located on the front panel along with the volume, treble and bass knobs. Auxiliary port is there too. A red LED illuminates when the box is powered up. I'm not real big on the battery compartment access panel. Its secured with (2) micro sized screws. The AC power port is located on the back of the unit.

Now for the test. Plugged in to AC power, I first connected this puppy to my Sony mp3 player. No problems. Afterwards I tried this speaker out with my Galaxy 4. Again, no real issues. It also married up well with my tablet. Every thing was go. With a few tweaks my tunes arrived special delivery with clear, crisp highs and a nice rich bass. I only had to make adjustments once.

A big plus is being able to tweak bass and treble settings. Unlike other gear that I've used in the past, I got zero distortion from the 3" speaker. Even at the #7 volume setting the tunes kept pumping out with 100% clarity.

This is a very cute miniature amplifier like for a guitar but it is for playing your music using your MP3 device or your smart phone with an auxiliary cable. In my video I show how the unit works and what comes with it. The speaker features a volume control and also bass and treble controls. It comes with a USB power cable, an AC wall power supply, an auxiliary cable and a brief instruction manual. You can power the speaker using your computer's USB port, the supplied power supply or using four AA batteries to make it truly portable. The AC wall power supply is UL approved and it operates on 100 to 240 VAC and 50/60 Hz.

The speaker has a very loud volume and it is almost too loud for its size. Make sure that you turn it down before you start playing your music. In the video I play a couple of songs and I show how the bass and treble controls work.

I liked this amplifier design a lot and it is nostalgic as my son plays the guitar and we always had an amplifier like this sitting around. This is a nice looking miniature replica with pretty good sound coming out of it. My iPhone 5S fit into the top slot even though it was inside of an Otterbox Defender case. I liked this mini amplifier a lot and I rated it at 5 stars.

I was supplied a sample of the product for test and evaluation and I promised to provide a fair and honest review.

The Ivation Classic Mini Amplifier is a small portable speaker. Due to the lack of a variety of inputs I wouldn't call it a "true" amplifier, but it will allow you to play music/sound from a variety of MP3 players. The Ivation Mini-Amplifier also allows you to adjust the bass and treble gains.

Notes-

- Can work on 4 AA batteries or the included AC adapter

- The only input is through an auxiliary input (cable included)

- The speaker can get quite loud, but depending on the type of music/sound and volume you will need to adjust the bass and treble. At higher volumes on bass heavy music the bass will bottom out.

- As mentioned the speaker includes separate bass and treble gain adjustments. This will allow you tailor the sound to help maximize performance.

- The speaker could be used as a amplifier for anything, as long as you have an adapter for a 3.5mm audio input.

- Features a single 3 inch driver - so it can not be played in stereo

- The speaker is about 50% bigger than the old Rubik's cube (that was the only thing I could think to compare it to!)

Final verdict - The Ivation Amplifier is a cool looking mini-guitar amplifier. While it doesn't quite pack the punch of a true amplifier it does allow you to help customize your size through the bass and treble adjustments

This speaker has superb sound in High, Mid Range and Low Notes even Bass sounds great! Note that this is just a speaker for use with audio cable, it is NOT a Bluetooth speaker. However, since I am so pleased with this that I recommend it to you for the following reasons in the Pros and later I mention the minor Cons:

PROS:

+ Unique stand for phone with speaker - This is the only one that I found that has a stand and a speaker all in one and that runs on batteries (4 AA, not included with this speaker) and also a plug in adapter and USB adapter as well.
This does not have a docking part to it on the slot and it will not charge your phone using this speaker--it just looks somewhat like a docking stand, but is just a plain stand/speaker.

+ Slot to hold a phone section - (As I just stated, this is NOT a docking slot that will charge your phone. It is just an area where you can place your phone and I will state below what phones will fit into this slot and phones that will NOT fit into this slot:
Phones that will fit (with a TPU cover on the phone): Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung S3 Mini and S4 Mini, most iPhones, HTC Inspire 4g, any phone or music player that has a screen of 4.3 should fit fine in this slot.
Note on Samsung Galaxy Players: The 3.6, 4.2 players (even with TPU Covers) fit fine into this slot. The Galaxy 5.0 Player does not fit. Also the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos phone DOES NOT FIT.

+ Sound Quality - In order to fully test the sound quality of this I listened to sample music from these Genres: Pop, Rock, Classical, and New Age. This is how I could judge the sounds of the HIGH NOTES and DEPTH of the low notes.
