As a rule, this equipment is connected to a stationary computer and listened to genre songs. Let's see how the device sounds in different styles.
- Trance. The basses leave much to be desired. Overall impression is good. The sound is clean, all musical instruments are audibly heard.
- Darkweave. The sound is normal. At minimum and medium volume, the playback is clean. At the maximum - there is noise. At the same time, the mid-frequencies are noticeably distorted, and the soloist's vocals turn into an ordinary "Bubnie".
- Rock. The sound is transmitted perfectly. Musical instruments are well audible, especially the violin.
- Alternative. Although it is one of the styles of rock, the acoustic system does it poorly. Too many basses that are transmitted too aggressively. Against this background, alternative songs become like hard rock, because the vocals are practically lost in the noise.
- Chillout. Sound can be classified as a quality one. The clearest sound, the inexpressible sensations.
It should be noted that this equipment was checked forone of the famous rock compositions. It's about Queen - Is This The World We Created. The sound can be called excellent.

Among the positive aspects of the device, consumersnote the following nuances: excellent bass, impressive design, value for money, powerful and clean sound, size, assembly, low cost, front adjustment, durability, good subwoofer, 59 watts and headphone connection.
Considering the shortcomings that are so muchlike buyers, it is necessary to note short wires (however it depends on the personal taste and needs of everyone), too long subwoofer, lack of control panel, unimportant audibility of high frequencies, open design of speakers. Out of the problems, consumers notice that the on / off button is badly pressed over time, and after a certain time the metal panel begins to peel off.
In general, the owners are satisfied with their choice, andmost of them recommend buying this particular model from similar budget options. It will amaze with the quality of playback, which is noticeable in almost all genres. The average price for the kit can be seen below.
