TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 30 November 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
My partner LOVES this free standing Bluetooth speaker.

She thinks it looks really smart and sounds GREAT. She could instantly hook-up to it with her Samsung Galaxy telephone and play all her favourite chart music at HIGH VOLUMES.

It was easy to attach the plinth which is housed separately in the polystyrene packaging for shipping. Personally, I would leave it off as I think it looks tacky and it serves no acoustic function (no, it doesn't have spikes!). I suppose it's a toss-up between either a tripping hazard when the plinth is on, or a toppling hazard when it's off.

There is a USB slot which can be used to charge your music playing device should it have abysmal battery life. This can also be used to play MP3 files back from a pen drive, either in sequence or shuffle mode. With an adapter (not supplied) it plays from a memory card.

The analog 'aux' input is via phono sockets and Lenco have kindly included a 3.5mm minijack to phono plug lead with the suggestion that this can be used to connect a domestic CD player. This is odd as in this situation it is normally utilised the other way around: 3.5mm jack to active speaker, phono sockets to standalone CD player. However, with a mobile telephone, tablet or ipod etc. this would normally be ideal.

The figure-8 mains socket is situated quite low down at the rear making the wire easy to conceal. The power switch is at the same level which is not so ergonomic.

I was quite excited to see a 'MOIST' button on the remote control. This sounded like some esoteric sound enhancement a jazz musician might want: "Hey, Fats.. give it some moist, baby!". Or perhaps a mode to invoke particularly sloppy slap-bass? However, it is simply a Mono/Stereo switch (MO/ST) for FM radio when you have a weak stereo signal and have to settle for mono for the sake of stability.

The remote needs to be well-aimed to invoke a response.

Unfortunately, despite it being well received in my household, I am forced to award only 2.5 stars (rounded down) as, in my own opinion, the sound quality is harsh and unpleasant. There is no discernable stereo effect and the reproduction is generally lacking in definition.

Sorry about that but there's no way I could listen through this tower for any length of time.

If it's any consolation, I don't particularly rate the sound quality of this Revo K2 Multi Format Tower Radio with Wireless Audio Streaming and Docking for iPod, iPhone and iPad but it's a sight better than Lenco's phallic beast.

There you go.. horses for courses. One man's meat etc.

This speaker tower certainly has an impressive physical presence when set up on the floor stand provided standing over 90cms high.
Connectivity is very versatile with bluetooth,usb and 1 pair of phono sockets with a stereo mini jack adaptor lead also provided.Bluetooth connection is very straightforward and the unit had no problems finding various devices that I paired it with.Unusually for this type of system it is also equipped with FM radio although no DAB option is provided.A clock and remote control are also provided.
With a claimed output of 60 watts RMS through a 2.1 speaker system I was expecting a fairly high volume and this proved to be the case.The sound quality,however is not of "Hi-Fi" standard although if the volume is backed off it is acceptable for this type of system.

Smart looking speaker, bluetooth easy to use, usb drive good although no track id.
Volume more than adequate, sound quality is OK but lacking depth in bass.
Please be aware the product is equipped with a continental 2 pin plug, so you will need to purchase an adapter before use.

Good bass but not enough volume on the bluetooth option even when both devices are turned up full also the range is pretty poor.
The fm radio has good signal clarity.
The buttons on top when pressed feel clicky and tacky

I am very unhappy with this product. Have had it only 4 months. It no longer plays anything at all, originally it was the blue tooth not working so I took to plugging it in with the aux cable but even that doesn't work now. I expected a lot more than that when I have paid £129. Not impressed!
