Sony SRS-X88

 

Sony's SRS-X88 is a wireless speaker from the same family of multiroom audio products as the impressive HT-XT3 soundbase. It's one of three Wi-Fi/Bluetooth speakers in Sony's latest range, sitting below the top-end SRS-X99 (£599) but above the portable...

Elegant design and sturdy build ; Loads of streaming features ; Nicely balanced sound with punchy bass and clear detail ; Easy to set up and use

Lacks excitement ; Narrow listening area ; Expensive

Sony SRS-X88 review

 

A talented wireless speaker bursting with features and a powerful, weighty sound...

Spacious and detailed sound ; Good amount of bass weight ; Potential for multi-room use

Lacks some body and warmth to mid-range – especially vocals ; Falls short of competitors rhythmically

You'll know when someone's switched on a Sony SRS-X88; it has a sound befitting its muscular stature.

Sony promises that the SRS-X88 can serve up superior sound, but did this wireless speaker impress our audio experts enough to become a Best Buy? We sent the wireless speaker off to the test lab to find out more.

Sony SRS-X88

 

Til tross for at Sony X88 er fullspekket med finesser, er den lett å bruke, og låter fantastisk.

Mange tilkoblinger inklusiv Google Cast! Enkel håndtering og bra app. Dynamisk og klar lyd for alle musikkstiler

Har ikke dypbassen som større høyttalere kan prestere

Sonys X-serie slår til igjen, og drar med seg enda en gevinst hjem. Den eneste svakheten hos X88 er at den ikke kan gi samme dypbass som større høyttalere. Men ellers gjør den det meste riktig. Den er pen i sin enkelhet, og takket være appen er den...

Har inte djupbasen som större högtalare kan prestera.

Sonys X-serie slår till igen och sopar hem ännu en vinst. Den enda svagheten hos X88 är att den inte klarar samma djupbas som större högtalare. Men annars gör den det mesta rätt. Den är snygg i sin enkelhet och tack vare appen är den enkel att hantera....

De Sony SRS-X88 is een leuke verrassing in het hoekje van de kamer

 

Kleine onopvallende luidspreker met erg veel mogelijkheden maar vooral een vol geluid. Luisterplezier voor iedereen. Van USB-stick, PC-USB of een ouderwets 3,5 mm kabeltje als input tot de meest uiteenlopende streamopties zoals Airplay, Chromecast,...

Niet echt. Een expertscore lager dan een 7 betekent dat Sony SRS-X88minder dan gemiddeld scoort. Er zijn dus duidelijk meer Draadloze speakers die beter worden beoordeeld door de deskundigen. Check de ranglijst voor een beter beoordeelde Draadloze...
