Samsung R6 review

 

A clever wireless speaker, but can it compete in a crowded market?

Clear and balanced sound ; Hi-res support ; Smart, sleek design ; Rechargeable battery ; Extensive streaming services ; Lovely app

Soft bass ; Lacks attack ; No ethernet port ; No 3.5mm input

With good 360 degree sound, multi-room features and a portable design, the R6 is worth a flutter

  (Rating Hidden)

The stylish yet somewhat eggy design of the Samsung R6 is certainly attractive. Differing from its siblings, it's the only one in the R range with battery power. But that comes at a cost - the £330 price tag may leave some a little shell shocked. All...

SAMSUNG R6 360° Wireless Smart Sound Multi-Room Speaker - Black

 

I do like the built in battery. I also like the 360 degree sound.

I bought 2 speakers, 1 had to be returned. It would not connect via Bluetooth. This highlighted the fact there are no hard wire connection sockets (a pity).

Good product ...

fiddly to start up (which is why I nearly didn't buy it from other reviews). Sound is good but Bluetooth range in my house is less than 10 feet.
