My 5 year old laptop recently failed, so I was obliged to rush out and find a replacement.
I didn't want to spend too much, so purchased a reasonably priced ASUS SonicMaster from PC World.
The ASUS does everything I want, but its one real fault is the sound. It is far too quiet, and there is no way to remedy this other than to buy an auxiliary add-on speaker.
I searched through Amazon, and plumped for this small NUBWO A2pro. It's a neat little object, and my sound quality has certainly improved. As it is a Bluetooth device it also means it's transportable, so I can listen to pleasant French accordion music whilst grilling a few Frogs Legs on the BBQ.
With VAT, delivery etc, it was a tad under £18; so no financial hardship involved. It has a 4 hour playing time, and takes about 2 hours to re-charge. It's easy to set-up and use, and does what's asked of it.
Cro rating: Good value for money. 7/10
