Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The reason for the price is roughly the following:
1. This is a very large and heavy sound system. Weight is around 30lb (13.5kg). It is ~3ft wide (.9m).
2. Faceplate is made of solid wood. As you will see in many other reviews on this product, it has an elegant and smooth wood face plate that adds style wherever it sits.
3. High quality speakers. Speakers are sourced from some of the best manufacturers out there. These speakers allow for non distorted, high volume music.
4. More on point #4. The volume output. This sound system is meant to fill large spaces/large houses with Zero distortion at high levels -- with any type of music. I can say, this is does and does to precision.
Treble: 9/10 - Clear, piercing, sharp, organic. Maybe a tad bit harsh for high pitch vocals at high levels, though no one will know the difference.
Mids: 8.5/10 - Present, full stage, not muffled. Each individual instrument is heard and performs independently. Because the treble is so apparent, can overshadow mids a bit.
Bass: 6.5/10 - Very good for a non-subwoofer speaker. More of a steady punch and light rumble, than a club-inspired thump. Is present, though a bit weak. Adds enough to give the music a fullness, but won't let you start your own club business anytime soon.
Sound quality is about as clear as can be discernible. Very organic, absolutely no distortion even at ear-pained volume levels. Feels like a live band with the volume up. To fill outside areas, or any large areas (as mentioned above) with 'band-like' levels of sound output, this will do this, period.
1 x RCA
1 x Digital Optical In
1 x 3.5mm Analog
Anyone serious about getting the best audio quality will not consider bluetooth. So, know that bluetooth in general will give you lossy music everytime. Use the digital optical in or 3.5mm analog for the best sound possible.
Bluetooth performs as expected, with no problems. Range was very good should there not be any obvious obstructions in the way. I got to 30 ft in a clear space with no real problems.
There comes with this speaker an app called 'AllPlay'. Not very intuitive as it is cumbersome to navigate your playlists, if they will even play at all. I suggest streaming off your phone's blue tooth connection if this is the route you want to take.
Taken all of the above, the deciding factor for you whether you should purchase this or not is simply this: Do you have a very large space to fill with crystal clear music whether that is in a business, hotel, home, party area? If so, then this should definitely be the in the running for your music system purchase.
For an all-in-one system, this thing sounds way better than a speaker this size has any right to sound. If I showed you its profile, and then played some music for you, you'd be impressed. Now, that said, you can get better quality for the same price. What's missing? No surprise here: a subwoofer. This is simple physics, people. I took the One Foundation and switched it out as a replacement for an old Bose 3-2-1 system. Back when I bought that 10 years ago, it was roughly the same price as the One Foundation is now. (All part of the great stereo system reorganization of 2016...) Anyway, that allowed a direct comparison of the same music, same room, and hence same acoustics, with different systems of the same price range across ten years. Which sounded better? The old Bose. And it wasn't precisely just the treble range. It was the bass. Why? The old Bose had a subwoofer. Not only did the bass have better clarity, by separating it out from the rest of the range, the higher frequencies stood out more clearly. This is simple physics. You want better sound? You need a subwoofer. (For the curious, I was playing music stored losslessly, from a computer, through an external DAC: Steve Tibbetts, for a wide range of sounds and tones).
You want to save space? You sacrifice the subwoofer. That's what House of Marley is doing here. And for sacrificing a subwoofer? This thing sounds pretty darned good. And standing on top of a nice bookshelf of the same wood tone? Nice and elegant too.
So is this the best sounding system you can get for $1000? Not by a long-shot. But, for an all-in-one, compact, elegant-looking thing, does it impress? Yup. And that's sort of where I'm stuck here. It sounds better than it should, but not as good as the old equipment it replaced for me.
Next, the set-up is pretty simple if you just want one input source. They want you to use their wi-fi program (more on that shortly), but if you just want to use bluetooth with your phone, or something like that, it's a breeze. Complications won't occur unless you want to switch input sources (more on that too).
I ain't usin' their wi-fi program, and that makes multiple input sourcing a pain... A big one.
That leads us to multiple input sources. Let's start with possible inputs. In addition to wi-fi and bluetooth, they have regular RCA (red/white), and digital optical input, but not a digital coaxial. If you are selling an item as an all-in-one piece, why not have both? I have a blu-ray player in another room, for example, that has a coaxial but not optical... C'mon, guys. Then, the problems with usability. If you want to switch back and forth between multiple input sources, you have to keep pressing a button on the remote until you get to the right input, and there isn't even a display to tell you where you are in the cycle. Then there's the remote... C'mon, use a standard battery, like AAA, not those stupid watch batteries that cost more than they should and are a pain in the rear to find. Then, they sell this as an outdoor system. In principle, you can take anything outdoors, but I wouldn't leave it there, and there is nothing to secure it anywhere. Would it survive my home's climate? I have no clue, and I wouldn't risk it.
Finally, of course, there is the loss of sound quality that simply comes from being an all-in-one system. Ain't no way around that. You lose the subwoofer, you sacrifice sound quality. Physics. You can find better sound quality for $1000. But, this is a beautiful piece, and it sounds better than I would expect for its size.
So, take that for what it's worth. Do you have room for a subwoofer? If so, you can get better sound for the price. If not, this thing might be the right choice, and if you just have one input source, this is a nice-looking piece that sounds better than it should for its size.
