Yamaha's Shelf Speaker Leaves Room for Some Boom

 

Yamaha's latest shelf speaker can rock the house(or at least a big room). You'll just have just part ways with a lot of cash to get there.

The “b” in USB here stands for “belongs on top, not in the back.” USB handles MP3 and WMA formats easily. Clean, understated design lines. Short and shallow enough to fit on many bookcases. Dimmable display perfect for bedtime “dance” parties....

Not loud enough for really big spaces (read anything larger than 20 x 20 feet). Remote control required to set time and date. Screwdriver required to change remote control’s batteries. A bit large for smaller bedside tables. Bass has enough kick to...

Design, audio quality, USB port

Price, no AUX connection or line-out port

The Yamaha TSX-130 digital radio looks good, sounds great and can play tracks from a range of sources. It's a little expensive, though.

Yamaha TSX-130 review

 

It may be little more than a glorified clock radio, but has the TSX-130 got what it takes to be the perfect bedtime buddy?

The Yamaha mixes form and function well, but we can’t help but hanker after a bit more control

Well specified and designed ; surprisingly hefty sound

Overconfident low frequencies can dominate proceedings

Review: Yamaha TSX-130

 

The bedroom is often left out when it comes to be fitted with a quality audio set-up, which is no surprise, really. As living spaces follow the modelling world's lead and shrink to a size zero, we really don't have the room to install huge separates...

The Yamaha TSX-130 is expensive, but if you can afford the £300-odd for one, it will be an excellent investment. I wouldn’t place it solely in the bedroom either – this stereo would happily grace the living rooms/entertainment rooms of most households....

Yamaha TSX-130 review

 

Pure's doing a neat line in cranking out sharp, affordable bedside buddies. Just look at the slick new Chronos II iDock. But what if you want something with a bit more oomph? Well that's where this Yamaha TSX-130 comes in. It does all that alarm...

Great sound, more features than any clock radio we've ever played with

Bulky, too big for a bedside table

It might weigh a ton but this clock radio is ace: just make sure you stick it on your lounge

Yamaha TSX-130 iPod dock

 

A quality arrival on the iPod dock market that's lively, versatile and sonically appealing

Agreed, it isn't cheap and some movement in the price might be necessary for this dock to make a big splash. However, the TX-130 delivers enough functionality, control, information and sound quality to hold its own and marks an interesting new chapter...
