Just for enjoying the music stream at home, I bought another speaker today, Sony SRS-BTV5, a bluetooth panorama speaker.
Since it is the 3rd speaker I bought, of course it should own some special points.
First thing first, the price. The SRS-BTV5, is released on October 2012, yes 2 years ago. The price at that time is 8000JPY, and today it is 4000JPY. Consider about the Japanese Yen Currency, update of the technologies, the reviews on internet, quite a deal isn’t it.
The operation of the small speaker is simple, a power side switch at the bottom side and volume up down keys around the side. Forgot tell the size and weight: 65mm×67.6mm×65mm 135g, just a ball about an iPhone 6’s weight.
On the input ports, a Micro-USB for charging the inner battery, a 3.5mm jacket for input sound signal as well. A fully charged inner battery can work for 5 hours, quite a solid performance I think, though I will alway link a USB cable on it for power supply. Also the 3.5mm sound jacket is almost unnecessary for me, just because I wall hang it in the air and always link the sound stream by bluetooth.
Final part, about the sound quality. Many reviews on internet say the SRS-BTV5 is pretty nice for delivering the sound. A 4.71/5 star is on Kakaku.com, 4.3/5 star on Amazon.jp, so I should have a confidence on it, right? An unboxed sound quality can prove everything, but SRS-BTV5 did it just fine. And middle area, high area performance is absolutely fantastic, impressed me a lot! Bass is not enough obviously, and no stereo no surround range because of the single speaker design. The resolution is not bad.
