In case you haven’t noticed, we are increasingly using mobile phones, laptops and tablets as entertainment
devices for listening to music, watching TV or films from our collection. While headphones are a must have when you are on the move, a portable speaker really comes handy when we are at home. The best part is we don’t have to spend an astronomical amount to enhance our audio experience as wireless speakers now come in all sizes and at various price points. A new decent budget speaker from Fenda Audio India, both sophisticated and attractive in design, will get everyone groove on your tunes with its pretty good sound performance. It retails for an affordable price of Rs 5,990.
Out of the box, the all new R30BT Bluetooth 2.0 bookshelf multimedia speaker is high on looks and impressive in its performance. The speakers come in an elegant articulate wooden design and are crafted to fit easily into your bookshelf. They have been fit into an elegant leather housing which makes it noble looking and its smooth design brings life to your music, movies and games. Take my word, one can forget about those irritating distortions and enjoy music at its best. This impressive looking speaker is a great way to listen to your smartphones and tablets supporting Bluetooth (A2DP), MP3 player, PC, TV, CD, DVD, and all your multimedia stuff.
The speaker comes with a two-way acoustic design, 1-inch silk dome tweeter and a 4-inch full range driver for high performance output. The R30BT is also packed with some high quality and user-friendly features such as Bluetooth 4.0 version and supporting NFC function. Traditionally, using a Bluetooth connection gives you a 10 metre range, which means that you’ll only be able to play music from a speaker in the same room as you—any further and you’ll probably experience the audio cutting out. But the R30BT has a Bluetooth operation range up to 15 meters, which allows you to play music from anywhere in the house. Plus, there’s a plug & play USB/SD card reader. Its USB reader supports MP3/WMA dual formats decoding, there’s a headphone jack for private listening too.
Switched on, the R30BT is a fairly powerful Bluetooth speaker. It sounds good and there’s low distortion and heart thumping bass. In my testing, song vocals were clear and crisp and audio filled the room without needing to be on maximum volume. There’s an attractive fluorescence full function remote control; therefore one can play his/her desired song directly by numeric keys through remote to enhance their listening experience. In my assessment, the R30BT is a decent speaker which performs impressively when playing all types of music.
