The Cygnett Soundwave Bluetooth Speaker and Dock is currently reduced to £39.99 at LoveCases... big sound at a small price!
As the name suggests, the stereo speaker uses Bluetooth to allow you to stream music from any Bluetooth enabled device, or alternatively using a 3.5mm input. The speaker can be powered from the mains using the supplied adaptor or using 8 x AA batteries for rocking out in the park. :D
Pairing / setup and control is a piece of cake using the buttons on the top of the unit and the package usefully includes a stand / dock for placing your device on. It is adjustable to fit your device and includes cable routing to allow you to pop your charging cable up from underneath, quite cool!
The Cygnett Soundwave uses 'dynamic drivers with passive radiators' but forget that... what does it actually sound like? Surprisingly good for sub-£40. While it can't quite compete with more expensive speakers such as the Big Jambox, it does crank up impressively loud without distortion and the sounds is full and rich, no doubt helped by the fact it's not a tiny little thing.
It's obviously not targetting audiophiles but for a kids bedroom (where mine is likely to end up!) it's ideal. Interested? Head on over to GearZap to learn more. :)
