It’s a bit sad when I get excited mainly because something turns up quickly – but recently Amazon has been either out of stock of things I want, or delayed and/or more expensive than normal… and of course, AliExpress goods have recently been on unfeasibly long lead times to the UK – not much use for travellers. This morning then, a new Sound Bar arrived from Banggood – their UK distribution point, a mere 3 days after the order was placed. Nice. Link etc. at the bottom.
No Bluetooth here and for my purposes that’s fine.
Simple and cheap, fixed colours or slowly sequencing.
The sound output is stereo. Size is 779*66*51mm high – this will fit nicely under my LG PC monitor. There’s a microphone input (far better than having it on the front of my PC which sites way at the back of my desk) and a headphone/buds output together with selection switch. The unit has a simple combined on/off/volume/light control – a short press changes light modes and a long-press turns the unit on and off. NO bass/treble control but I can do that back in the PC mixer anyway.
And that’s it – nice-looking gadget, solid feel, aluminium, quality finish. And now – the sound- it’s FINE. Bit of common sense here, it’s never going to sound like room-size bass speakers, but my hearing could be better and yet it can play slightly too loud for me without distortion… I like it.
And here (without prejudice) is the correct link and coupon info from Banggood. Assuming that coupon data is accurate – thats a good price IMHO.
