A&S 2.1 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 Review; Redefining Budget-Friendly Quality


INTRODUCTION:

In a country where music remains to be one of the most effective stress relievers, aside from having a smartphone, getting yourself either a good pair of headphones or earphones or a nice-sounding speaker system is a must. Luckily, as the competition in the tech scene gets even tougher, consumers are given more affordable choices to look for a speaker system that would fit not just what they want in terms of acoustics but also based on their budget. A prime example of this is the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300.

Now, you might ask, what is A&S? While it’s a relatively new brand in the local market, A&S has been known to produce quality electronic consumer products. We previously took to test its affordable take on large televisions, the A&S 49-inch FHD LED TV. In the review, we discussed a number of positive points of the said television, and one main issue that we have which is its speaker. For those who are on the lookout for a speaker system that would match their new TV, or even for those who’d want to just have a 2.1 speaker system at home, here are the reasons why the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 can be the budget multimedia speaker to beat in the market today.


BUILD AND DESIGN:

Out of the box, the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 can be easily mistaken as an expensive multimedia speaker. Upon first glance, what we initially noticed is its minimalist and sleek design, and its strategically-placed control buttons and ports.

Clad in black, the soundbar of the said speaker system comes with a front-firing speaker covered with a netted speaker grille that showcases the brand’s logo in the middle. The buttons of the soundbar are located on top so one can easily control and tweak the settings according to their preferences. The control buttons of the soundbar include the power, sound source, equalizer, pair, and volume controls. At the back are the ports for power, coaxial, optical, AUX, and HDMI. This is one of the things that we liked about the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 because it’s important for a speaker system to have generous choices for connectivity since it also reflects its versatility.

The wireless subwoofer of this speaker system is nothing out of the ordinary in terms of its design, but what’s important is that it delivers its function of providing strong and rich bass very well. As mentioned earlier, this is a 2.1 speaker system with a wireless subwoofer, which means less tangled cables.

The package of the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 comes with the essentials including the manual, two pieces of power cable, 3.5mm audio cable, and wall bracket. This speaker system also has a remote, of course, but take note that it requires a CR2025 battery, which although a bit challenging to find in some supermarkets, comes more affordable than AA and AAA batteries. What we appreciate about the accessories that the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 has is that it also comes with a free optical cable so there’s no need to buy one to maximize the speaker system.


PERFORMANCE:

Setting up the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer took us only a few minutes. While other products that are on the same category as this speaker system often encounter problems when connecting the soundbar to the subwoofer, with the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, pairing went on like a breeze. To connect the soundbar and subwoofer, all that’s needed to do is turn on the power button for both, and it will automatically pair within the next 30 seconds.

Putting it further to test, we played a number of our favorite tracks on the speaker and we’re delighted to hear that at such an affordable price, the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer delivered just the clear mix of bass and treble, and the vocals do not overpower the sound of the instruments in the background. We also tried using the said speaker system to watch movies with rich sound scoring, and this speaker system provided a sound quality that’s almost cinema-like.


FINAL WORDS:

Given all the good qualities that the A&S 2.1 Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 300 has at an affordable price, it’s safe to say that a premium-like listening experience need not be that expensive.
