Yamaha PDX-B11 Review


Yamaha, purveyor of everything from motorcycles to grand pianos, has always had a firm footing in the audio industry. That's why it was no surprise to us to find a Bluetooth speaker among the latest additions to its mammoth product line.

Clean, powerful midrange ; Ample max volume ; Rugged construction

Sharp, brittle upper register ; Poor feature set ; Occasional Bluetooth issues

We’re not going lambaste the PDX-B11 and slap it with the worst Bluetooth speaker rating ever, but we certainly can’t recommend it, either.

Yamaha PDX-11 Player Dock

Certainly this is not designed to blend in with the lounge furniture with its black colour unusual shape and heavy chrome handle and fittings all set off with the large holed metal grill all of course give it the effect desired. It is 20cm across...

Yamaha PDX-11


We're starting to see more portable speaker docks on the shelves, but most pale in comparison to Yamaha's industrial- chic PDX-11.

Surprisingly good sound; fully portable; well-made


The Yamaha PDX-11 is capable of far better sound than you’d think. It’s simple, portable and very well-priced. In fact, at $129 this is definitely a best-buy.

Yamaha PDX-11


Yamaha's portable iPhone dock oozes street cred, but does it dish out worthy sound?

Cheap; Looks great; Voluminous sound

Not ideal for genres lacking bass
