Trust GXT 638 2 : Great product but lacking in treble.

Tv audio transformation, wow. . Looked hard for an audio solution to improve the tv movie viewing experience and i shall admit to you, that i have chosen wisely as- they-say. I struggled to be convinced that a sound bar would be an improvement but the 3d effect that most of the purchasers gave in their reviews suggested that they lacked the power or wattage to deliver adequately the desired effect. The only other solution to not having trip wires everywhere was a quality 2. Wowthis had very good features for plugging in other sound sources.

Firstly, the item arrived on the day specified and well packed. Secondly, it was as described. I am not sure about the output but it does have a lot of clout for a desktop sound system. The volume control works well although i note that some reviewers have had problems. In any case i am going to get rca cables and by pass the volume control. The finish is good and the sub woofer fits on my desk. It is definitely good value for money.

First one sub had a buzz so sent back got replacement trust vigor 2. 1 pc speaker system this is the second trust 2. 1 this one had faulty left speaker which was dead no audio tested with anther speaker the left channel works so it was a faulty speaker all i want is a speaker i don’t want to have to keep sending back just for one speaker was going to but got fed-up so i cancel the return.

You get what you pay for,and a bit more. . Up and running within five minuets. Easy to follow guide makes these speakers a dream to set-up. Check you have the bass turned down before you input any music,its incredibly deep. Bluetooth pair done in seconds and even the wife can listen to her music via her phone. But the most amazing thing,from ordering to delivery, just 30min’s short of 24hrs. Edit: had these for almost a year now. They have been used every day connected to a smart tv. My son has just ordered a set. My brother has just ordered a set.

Trust GXT 638 2.1 Digital Gaming Speaker System with Subwoofer for Computer, Laptop, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, 120 W, UK Plug, Digital Connection : I bought these to replace some logitech z200 speakers which were disappointingly tinny. On first plugging them in the big old-skool subwoofer dominated but i just turned it down to a level i was happy with. I haven’t tried the bluetooth, but plugged into my pc they do everything i want of them, i really like their appearance and sound, and i can crank up the volume when i want to. At the price i paid i can’t believe the value for money of this this system.

For the price it is a very good system. Easy to set up (even though the. For the price it is a very good system. Easy to set up (even though the instruction sheet was next to useless). Good overall sound, particularly the high end which is nice and clear. Big subwoofer and yet not as bassy as my previous system which was half the size.

Great speakers, with a good price tag. . The speakers are great and probably the best speakers in this price range, to get anything better you would need to look in the range of £80+. The speakers deliver very crisp and clear audio when listening to music, and the sub is great for when you are playing games and watching movies and want to feel all of those explosions going off, it is very powerful and i never use it on full blast and nor do i recommend that you use them at full blast (unless you wanna annoy the hell out of your neighbors). Overall they are good speakers for the price and also come with a decent warranty from the manufacturer. The only thing that disappointed me slightly was that the power switch is on the sub, so if you have the sub under your desk and the speakers on top of it (behind the monitor etc) it is a little annoying to have to reach down every time to turn them on or off, other then that cannot really fault them.

Good quality speakers, the sound is really good for a set of this price (so-called ‘audiophiles’ probably won’t agree, but we can’t all have their super-human hearing capabilities). I’m using them on my pc for music and tv/movies. The sub woofer is quite big, and i find the wired volume/input/headphone control to be most useful (connecting your phone is easy with an aux cable). They feature a power saving mode, which is nice, and bass/volume controls on the sub. I like that they have used phono plugs/sockets to connect the speakers, and also for the input as i’ve found some 3. 5mm jack inputs to be a bit dodgy.

This was intended primarily as an external output for my son’s xperia z ‘phone. Given that he is a) 16 and b) likes dubstep r’n’b and all that other bass heavy stuff and c) is jolly pleased with it, should say all that needs to be said. Is it any good from an audiophile’s perspective?. All i know is that i have a satisfied teenager and that is always a neat trick to pull off. For convenience i paired this with an avantree roxa: bluetooth 4. 0 home music receiver adapter with aptx codec, also available from amazon, and it works perfectly.

Bit of a faff swapping from wired to bluetooth connection- need to press a button on the base which is ok unless you have put the base behind/under your furniture- also wired seems louder than bluetooth from my iphone (with the same volume on the phone). Sound quality seems v good to me and certainly loud enough for a middle aged party.

1 speakers because they have pretty good bass and are loud. I’m not a sound expert so i can’t really give great detail as to the quality, but they are definitely better than my imac built-in speakers. The bluetooth is handy but the wiring is a nuisance, and i think the silly controller is unnecessary because you can adjust the bass and volume separately on the side. Despite this minor flaw, i recommend it, especially given the decent price.

I went for this model because it had an optical input. I’ve tried both analogue and optical and there is a difference of clarity and depth favouring the optical. Whether this is in my pc, or the connection, or the speakers themselves, who can tell. The sound is good with plenty of top and the bass is extended and convincing. Turn the sub up too high and it ‘honks’ but the it would be unrealistic anyway. My only quibble, not enough to lower the rating, is that the optical source has to be selected each time the speakers are turned on, as they default to analogue.

Speaker when there wasn’t the crackle they sounded just fine a little heavy on the bass but overall pretty. Leaving three stars because amazon were very helpful with returns but i had two faulty units with a crackle coming from the right speaker when there wasn’t the crackle they sounded just fine a little heavy on the bass but overall pretty good sound quality for the price can’t really recommend because of the two duff units but maybe i was just unlucky ended up buying some logitech z333’s would recommend those.

    Considering it cheap, it’s fantastic at it’s price point imostruggles with the highs, but not too noticeable unless you use hi end hifi equiptment. Bass balancing is a little weak in the -70hz frequencies but 85-130hz can punch decent enough to make you want to rock your head uncontrollably. They do look nice and clean with the shiny finish, and the cable lengths are acceptable. Overall for a cheap thrills 2. 1 this is fine for uni students and stuff, but maybe not you entry level audio thrill seekers. Games/tv/computer usage etc, but i wouldn’t recommend for music activities/pleasures alone. You’ll want to spend more for that.

    1. Great value high quality speakers. Really good product, i was gonna spend £130 on some speakers and decided it was too much, so i bought these, thinking they wouldn’t be as good as the more expensive ones, turns out they are really good. Impressive bass, good size sub, satellite speakers look good and produce a good quality mid to high range sound, the controller is very smooth and feels like good quality, i’ve not stopped listening to music since i got them 😆👍, sfx on the movies and games are bought to life with them too.
