Mahoosive speaker with amazing power!

MHC-V83D 15/11/2020 by surfdudecamps

I received this product a few weeks ago, the speaker is huge and very heavy! But its heavy for a reason, its very very powerful. The sound is amazing with deep bass and crisp sounds. It has a dab radio and some disco lights at on all sides of the unit including the back! Turn the lights in your room off and your living room turns into a night club. The speaker can also work as a karaoke machine too. There is a function where you can swipe the top to change songs or create sound effects, its a little gimmicky but fun. The unit uses Bluetooth, has a cd player, and a number of other inputs and you can connect other sony speakers to it. Overall its well built and has lots of features, some useful and others you won't use.

High impressive performance with a few quirks!

MHC-V83D 09/11/2020 by crump5911

First thoughts on opening the well packaged box was that this is bigger than I was expecting & even though I knew how big it was I was still surprised! The system is heavy, it took two of us to safely lift it and place it but once in place it is sturdy and the built in handle along with the couple of castors on the base allow for easy manoeuvring. The system I am please dot say has been built to a high specification, it feels durable and of a superior quality, I cannot fault the design -it is easy on the eye, is all one colour (Jet black) and really stands out as a performance piece. To start the system up all you need to do is plug in one power cable, power on and connect Bluetooth and within seconds your tunes will be pounding through the impressive high quality, high efficiency speakers that perform to a far more superior standard than I expected from a midrange set up. The power cable I believe should have been double the length, given that this awesome piece of kit is designed for gatherings, parties, karaoke’s etc the cable does restrict the positioning of the speaker but I suppose nothing that an extension cable wouldn’t solve (subject to correct H&S assessment obvs!) The speakers are awesome, impressive and the depth of the sound just travels in all directions literally filling the room with its deep yet clear bass. Every sound projected is clear, strong, dynamic, and full of energy. The beat is physically felt in the air and on the ground, it is breath taking! The full volume realistically is for use in large settings or in open grounds, I cannot imagine it going down too well with neighbours if it was pounding away all night…. Or invite the neighbour’s around and problem solved – party away! The party lights are just Wow! The lights move with the music, shining brightly and boldly throughout the room into every corner and really do generate a real ‘party’ vibe and when used in combination with the karaoke you would think you were performing on stage! The system also has two apps that you can download, one being Fiestable App that allows up to two people to sing along together on karaoke as well as enabling you to conveniently manage the choice of track, lights and colour choice – the fun part here is that more than one person can have the app and you can all sync your apps / displays to change and respond to the music playing meaning that you can all have little mini light systems on your phones which just enhances the whole experience especially in a darkened room. The Apps, other than the fun Karaoke feature were not a benefit to be honest, once the novelty had worn off, I found the Apps pointless - Fiestable even has a game mode (Taiko) and to be honest I struggled to understand the point and how to play, this would not be a selling feature of the device. Sony Music centre App, which is the primary App again wasn’t to my liking, I found it difficult to navigate and not user friendly – remember the system is designed for fun and not to be fumbling around an App! The system connects beautifully to Bluetooth and it responds instantly to track changes and I personally feel that this is enough - pop on a playlist and let it play! Enjoy the sound! But the system also has the added extra benefit of NFC (Near Field Communication) which is a fab addition and obviously allows for even smoother connection compared to Bluetooth, it is responsive and prompt. Th system boosts an impressive multi- source playing option, you can as previously mentioned connect via Bluetooth or NFC, but you can simply pop in a CD / DVD, connect via USB, HDMI (yep you can connect this monster to your TV!) and you can also make use of the DAB radio. Literally spoilt for choice with every possible playing option included, I personally do not think you could ask for more. I connected to my TV, and watched an action movie through this, personally I feel the sound was too much and unnecessary but for a cinema night it really could shine! Controlling the system can be done in multiple ways, if you want to feel like you are spinning the decks then you can use hand gestures, swiping over the controls and scratching the ‘record’, all nice extras that would be a treat when hosting. It comes with a remote control, but as you can control this with the Sony App I’m not too sure why a remote is necessary especially when all of the controls are on the top of the speaker and so you need to get up to view the choices you are making. Overall, its is an impressive speaker system based on the omnidirectional light and sound performance, the added extras are all fancy extras that do not in my opinion enhance the system (its performance is enough) but they are quirky talkable extras that some may like. Would i buy this? If you want mellow, standard and ordinary then no, but if you want to Wow! if you want that bit more, that extra performance, the ability to host a proffesional party then definitley consider this system as it offers all you could need and more.
