The Tango Bar is a stereo soundbar designed to match the looks of the aluminum iMacs. Made out of aluminum (it's quite heavy) it comes with a single cord that plugs directly into the computer's USB port and provides audio and power. The back features a stereo minijack for auxiliary input, a headphone minijack, and an RCA connector for an optional subwoofer.

But how does it fare soundwise? Not bad at all: rich and accurate, although obviously lacking bass. It's a vast improvement over the already good built-in iMac speakers, but for full sound, a subwoofer is needed. Unfortunately, Xtrememac leaves you to fend for yourself in that area: they do not offer a matching subwoofer and do not recommend any specific subs.

Installing the soundbar is ridiculously simple: plug in the white USB cord and select the new audio device for output, no driver required. That's it! you're ready to go.

I called tech support for a setup issue and my call was answered right away by a very helpful and professional representative.

PROS
----
* Great design and finish, perfectly matches the iMac
* Solidly built
* Single cord
* Subwoofer output
* Headphone jack
* Auxiliary input
* Excellent sound quality

CONS
----
* Lack of bass
* No instructions on subwoofer use and compatibility
* Headphone jack should be in the front, not in the back

CONCLUSION
----------
The Tango Bar is a perfect way to improve the sound of your iMac without detracting from its appearance or adding a tangle of wires.

I have one thing to be grateful with this sound bar, it gave me a new appreciation of the audio quality coming out of my Apple Thunderbolt Display. After comparing side by side, music (mostly piano jazz) for half an hour, I've come to the conclusion that the speakers in my display are better at both high and low frequencies, in that this sound bar tends to muddy up those ranges or not reproduce them. Not that they are terrible, just that if you listen you can't hear the crispness of a drummers high hat cymbals for example. They also don't compare well to my desktop surround system, a Logitech Z 906.

The bar has an optional output for a subwoofer, so sound would doubtlessly improve on the low end if you used that option.

The sound is much better than the optional sound bar attached to a Dell LCD monitor my son uses, so that is where this speaker system ended up. To summarize my subjective feeling for relative quality:
Built in MacBook Air speakers < Built in MacBook Pro speakers < Dell Speaker Bar < This Tango Bar < Thunderbolt display < Logitech Z 906

I'm really confused by how Xtrememac calls this a 10W amplified speaker bar, the Mac System Information application says it is using at most .5A of current, which at the 5V provided by a USB port, would indicate it's drawing at most 2.5W, so unless it stores it up for bursts somehow, I must be missing some definition of 10W.

The last computer speaker setup I had with a powered subwoofer sounded great but there were wires everywhere and speakers in very inconvenient locations on and under my desk. This is speaker is designed to be unobtrusive and look great with the iMac. (I have a 27" on order but it looks fine on my old 21"). The sound is very good and measurably better than the internal speakers.

If you want to maintain the minimalist Mac look and have good sound, this is the speaker for you.

So far, very happy with these speakers. They are a big improvement over the tubby sounding built-in IMac speakers. Not the most powerful speakers in the world, but will crank up loud enough for any normal listening experience without disturbing the neighbors. The USB cable is 20 inches long. If you have the speakers in the normal position under the monitor, the cable would only need to be 6" long to reach the input jack on the back of the monitor, so there is 14" of extra cable back there that will look untidy if the rear of your monitor shows with your particular desktop setup. Not a big deal, just needs to be coiled up. The width of the speaker is practically identical to the length of the 21" monitor, so it looks like it was custom made for that size monitor, and it tucks under the monitor nicely as the pictures illustrate. The color of the speaker casing matches the silver monitor perfectly, making it appear like a genuine Apple product. There is an illuminated ring around the volume dial on the right side of the speakers when powered on providing a classy look. Very well done. Absolutely no complaints.

We have a first gen intel imac, it runs a little slow but otherwise is a great machine. The speakers in it are ok for general use but not much more. We wanted some speakers but wanted to keep it all low profile. This unit does the trick nicely. As it plugs in via USB you control the audio via the imacs keyboard, so very nice that. They are crazy loud but they are fine for music, videos, games, etc. All in all very cool. I tested with with my acer netbook and they seemed to work ok there as well but I didn't give them a huge tryout. The netbooks suffers from from tiny underpowered speakers so I can see using it with them often.
