Overview acoustics Philips S5X (BTS5000). Powerful Bluetooth stereo system for the home
We wrote about a lot of interesting products from Philips. From a variety of headphones to portable speakers. the company’s product line is very wide, and each year it appears dozens of new proposals, sometimes unusual. As these columns.
Look at Philips S5X and at first not even realize that this is not the front speakers from the Boombox, and full the audio system. The source of the sound will play your iPhone or iPad. Or Mac. Without wires, of course. Or computer, TV, BluRay player. No matter: this is a universal column for home with excellent sound quality and Bluetooth connections. And yet it is extremely powerful and loud.
Column Philips S5X. called in the Russian retail BTS5000B. first introduced at last year’s exhibition IFA in Berlin. Our editor Kostya Gribanov was so preoccupied with other events around that probably passed by their booth if it was. By the way, a selection of his posts and videos I sincerely advise you. it turned out great. Oh well, it is another question.
Wireless speakers are now in trend. Not so much portable versions as a full audio system, designed for home. This acoustic is different from the mobile models are obvious superior sound quality. as well as the availability of advanced systems improve signal, smoothing the difference between the wired podklyuchenie and Bluetooth connection. All this is written about Philips S5X BTS5000. It is designed to become the only full-sized acoustics in the house those who are looking for a universal Bluetooth speakers with good sound.
As usual, Philips S5X available in two colors: partly white and fully black. We brought the first model and, after reviewing the images of the black version, we would definitely have preferred to buy white option. It is not only pleasing to the eye of the matte surface of the column. In the white modification very powerfully distinguished speakers, giving columns futuristic, though a little youth motif.
Body and all external parts are made of plastic. Ribbed pattern on the inner side of the dome speakers brought the camera from my mind, so don’t pay attention to strange effect in the photo above. When playing bass music, these small and shiny segments seen from afar — they shimmer in the light, Bouncing from the low frequencies. I wonder whether it was originally intended.
the Upper part of the front is crowned by a high-frequency speaker, the people of «tweeter». He literally stands out from the main part of the body. The idea is interesting from the point of view of design, adds a dramatic character in the rest of the calm, measured appearance Philips S5X .
On the side of the right column there are two important regulator. The first expected is responsible for the volume of the playback signal. And the second switches used audio. The selection is marked with LEDs under each of the four positions. Accordingly, inputs for external audio sources here are three: optical, coaxial and normal analog input for traditional home equipment. The fourth indicator includes receiving audio via the built-in Bluetooth module .
the Second pair of knobs located on the back side. Here the owner can change the accents sound speakers to increase the volume of high frequencies, or, conversely, to increase the power is low and the accompanying bass. Adjust the frequency allow to adjust the sound to suit your preferences. whatever they were. Also, there are several other ports: optical in, coaxial, external analog. The upper pair of analog connectors designed to connect to the left column, and the food is served on one of them. The second plays passively.
Please note the USB port. Philips took care of the target audience and gave the column with the opportunity recharge mobile devices. 5 volts, 2 amps — enough to connect to power speakers for both iPhone and iPad. Kind of savings outlets, plus an additional convenience when the wired connection of mobile devices.
In the upper part of the speakers are bass reflex ports. With them is one of the technologies Philips. increasing the power and quality of the low frequencies. The company calls its Bass Reflex:
Unlike conventional systems is to use a phase inverter, which acoustically is configured under LF emitter to optimize the reproduction of low frequencies. The result is better control of the bass and less distortion. The principle of operation of the system is resonating air mass in the port, creating a vibration, as in the usual bass-emitter. In combination with the characteristics of low frequency emitter, the system extends the overall low frequency range, which allows us to achieve a deep surround bass.
anyway, the bass here is very decent — including talk about it. ‘ll just mention a couple of important details from the complete set of columns.
We already know that Philips S5X at least a quarter is a wireless Bluetooth speaker. Know what minus the absolute majority of them? You connect to them your gadget, include your favorite music and seems to be relieved from attachment to the wires. But every time you need to change the track or decrease the volume, you have to look for the gadget to remove it on the spot — or even to carry in a pocket. Not very wireless system was would. Complete with S5X lies a small, simple, but very useful remote control playback. Thanks to him, to the column you don’t want to go.
Put «plus» and wrapped the audio cables lying in the box. These wires are much longer than usual, and they look at her attractive.
the Aggressive design of columns implies that their sound has some bold feature. «Trick», if you will. The total volume of all the speakers is 100 watts. what is Grand digit for home acoustics. In situations where you need to provide a powerful sound the whole apartment and (a little) neighbors, enough for half that number. The higher the volume, tied with deep bass, gives a very interesting, vibrant picture sound, you can change to your liking.
In the case of each column is two dynamics — high-frequency, diameter 15 mm, and a low frequency, diagonal 5.25. Good I want to say about each of them. At the same time do not expect Studio audio: this unit is for the house, which saturates the music mood. This is what you choose for yourself. On standard settings, frequency, Philips S5X plays bright, with light focus on high frequency. Vocals, electronic instruments and a synthesizer, bells mediator strings acoustic guitar sounds particularly clearly.
At the same time, powerful woofers do any track modern genres simply gorgeous. A little poigravshis with regulators from the side, you will achieve from columns defiantly deep bass. R&B, rap, dance music of various kinds, not only powerfully strike the ear, but surprise drafting, detail bass. As I said previously, the Philips S5X is not created for those who are looking for a very simple Hi-Fi or professional «monitors». But compared to most other speakers for the same money, this model gives a very decent sound.
Interestingly, the difference in sound quality when transferring data via Bluetooth on ear almost indistinguishable from a wired connection. As in portable column Philips Fidelio P9. the wireless signal is explicitly handled and better clever way, before playing the speakers. This, in particular, says the company’s official website, where among the technical characteristics specified column technology support aptX. It provides fast processing of incoming data and, ultimately, trying to restore the quality of music from a source to a level as close as possible to the direct connection.
Philips S5X full of technology and vozmozhnosti in full. This pair of powerful speakers will adapt to any of your home task. Whether it’s music through Bluetooth or a wired connection to traditional audio equipment, you will not be disappointed with the sound and ease of use. The presence of the remote controller allows you to use the column in wireless mode, without being distracted by the search for the iPhone. Sit on the sofa and clicked the tracks from time to time doing other things.
Personalisation sound — thing Apple has almost weaned us. But here it is you who decide how you want to sound your favorite tracks. Want more bass? Or, on the contrary, more high? Any whim for relatively little money. This is a universal acoustics with sound quality above average, able to become the only speakers in the house for the next few years.
Average cost of Philips S5X BTS5000 in Russia — 11 thousand rubles.
