Da5000 Pro - Quick Review

DA5000 Pro is a very popular multimedia speaker system and the fans call it as a mini home theater.  The package is really huge with 2 boxes. One box with a heavy 8” sub-woofer and the other box contains satellite speakers. The build quality is good with wooden housings and looks good.
The DA5000 Pro is the next version of the DA5000. DA5000 has plastic housings for satellites and the pro version is released with MDF housings. In addition, DA5000 rare speakers are of 6W each where as the Pro has 12W each.
It has a wireless remote which has many options to adjust the sound as per one’s personal tastes. There are separate options to adjust Bass, Treble and Mids.  Sound output of each satellite speakers can also be adjusted. Overall it has a very good build quality and decent looks.
Sound Quality – let me preface by saying sweet sounding speakers for the budget with soft bass and good details. An inbuilt sound card is definitely not a good source to check the efficiency of the speakers. It has a total power output of 120W.
Sub-woofer shares 60W of the total power, 8W each front and rare speakers and remaining center speaker. I felt that the center speaker is weak compared to the satellites and produces lame output. However, this could not be noticed unless tested separately.  These speakers suit best for music, but it doesn’t mean that it is not suitable for movies and games. These speakers are good for movies and games as well but the bass freaks feel the bass is not enough compared to the Logitech Z5500.
Get a good sound card to make DA 5000 pro to perform its best. The old motherboards are really not sufficient enough to drive these speakers.  I suggest using Asus Xonar soundcards - especially, DX or D1.
I cannot give ratings to DA5000 pro as I have auditioned very few multimedia speakers and so cannot judge the rating of the speakers correctly.  However, I can say that these perform well in details compared F&D F6000 and Logitech Z906. But when it comes to powerful bass Logitech Z906 > F&D F6000(U) > DA 5000 Pro.
Thanks for reading. Please post any information or help needed regarding this topic as a comment. I will get back to you soon.  Happy listening…

SoundMagic E30 review

E30, another emerging and top searched IEM from SoundMagic. E30 is launched as an upgrade to PL30 – a budget earphone with fun and spacious sounding, and also a preferred earphone by many customers even for now.

The outlook and feel of E30 is similar to PL30 – an on-ear type earphone, designed for the use even while working out, playing and other activities.

Accessories and Build Quality

The package comes with a pair of plastic ear guides, a pair of double-flange tips, 3 pairs of single flanged other different sized silicon tips, a carrying bag and a shirt clip and  these accessories are sufficient and quite enough to fit for different ear holes.

The build quality is good. As, I am currently using the third version of E30 which shows a good improvement in the build quality compared to the previous two versions I used (not sure about how many versions of E30 has been released).

In the newer version, the wire looks like a rope where two wires are twisted to combine them. The housings …

Best Audiophile Grade Music Player for Android Devices...

Music Players – Top searched apps on Google Play. What really matters when choosing a player for your phone or tablet? - Software or hardware or both.
It is definitely a good hardware which makes difference in the sound quality. Some cheap quality phones are available in the market for give away prices. Many have cheap quality hardware which cannot deliver quality sound though a good player is installed. But a good player always performs better than the default player provided with the phone. However, many will never be satisfied with the stock player and always look for something better.
Almost all players come with several equalizer settings and tweaks to modulate the sound. However, I personally feel tweaks will spoil the originality of the music and suppress many sounds and delivers recessed output (I am not sure about the custom equalizer though). If you are really an expert in equalizer settings and can judge the difference between clear audio and amplified audio then definite…
