This New Delhi-based fast emerging brand for multimedia speakers promises an audio treat with its new F6000U, a 5.1 multimedia speaker which delivers excellent sound quality for all music types. The product is priced at R10,990 and is ideal for a small house party. Let us find out how it stacks up in terms of features and performance.

The entire package, that is, the five satellite speakers and their base, plus audio cables and the in-line power supply came to us for a product review neatly packed in a large cardboard box. Once out of the box, it becomes evident that F&Ds latest offering meets the three key requirements something that is budget based, simple setup and good quality audio with plenty of clarity. The overall design is very good and its user-friendly remote control will mean that the gizmo will become a part of your drawing room or bedroom in no time. It also occupies less space and most importantly, it is power-friendly.

Installation was a seamless affair. I connected the speaker to the sub via an accompanying cable and then connected the F6000U to a wide range of audio choicesiPod Touch, laptop, mobile phones, DVD player via the cable. I simply hit play and sat back to relish incredible sound. Believe me, the entire living room came alive with full, clear sound with a bass that will transport you right into the heart of the sound you are listening to. You can also play it as loud as your guests want, without worrying about poor sound quality or interference. The F6000U was able to handle everything; be it gaming, watching movies or enjoying music. Trust me. Youll be the envy of your friends and bane of your neighbours.

At the core of this product is a thumping Bass effect with 6500 watts peak music power output (PMPO). With the speakers helping in 360-degree dispersion of sound waves for high fidelity surround sound, the sub-woofer within its 8-inch powerful bass driver too will enhance the experience. And by the way, we are talking about a fairly decent 6,500W output here!

The F6000 U has a bright LED display on its front. Its digital FM player, by using advanced phase lock loop (PLL) technology, gives superior reception too. Plus, there is easy connectivity to computers, MP3 players, TVs and DVD players. Its USB device and SD card slot are a boon for any music lover.

All in all, the F&D F6000U is a very good speaker. So, if you are having a house party and need some speakers, make this F&D a part of your home entertainment. It wont burn a hole in your pocket too.
