Very Good, Feature Loaded. Pair with Universal Remotes.
Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2018
These are direct competitors to $399 Aperion Audio Allaire speakers. Both models offer the same features and benefits, and both models come with cabling that makes set-up easy. In fact, they are so similar in features and packaging that I wonder if they're made in the same Chinese factory.
These are a bit more tonally balanced than the Allaire, although the Allaire have a very nice warmth and sound a little fuller. I also think perhaps the Allaire play louder...but I didn't measure decibels with a meter.
We use these speakers instead the awful speakers in our 24" bedroom flat screen TV. For listening to TV shows and streaming content, the BT3 have slightly clearer dialogue.
If we used the speakers only for music, I'd likely choose the Allaire.
A deal killer for us about the Allaire is their inability to pair with a cable, satellite or universal remote control because they apparently do not use the Philips RC5 remote code protocol.
The BT3 pair instantly with our cable tv remote. Yay! No more need for a dedicated remote to operate the speakers.
Finally, these are $109 less expensive than the Allaire.
