Not at all, long standing joke about Onkyo from an Onkyo deal years ago

Shows as £130 for me.

How you getting £39.99? Showing £130 + £6.99 delivery...

Cos he knows it's poor value when you compare it against better known brands like Sony, Panasonic and Alba.

Was 39.99, then 130 when I saw your post and now it's 39.99 again?

Looks v good for price. Might go for it.

Nice deal, heat. Few reviews aside from What Hi-Fi (middling) but that was at full price. Also What Hi-Fi frequently talk utter plums.

That said, reckon I'll leave it and put the money toward one of the 3rd party Google Home devices coming soon, such as Onkyo's smart speaker.

I'm sure being Onkyo it will sound excellent for £39.99

I got the 20w anker one recently that everyone was raving about and I really wasn't impressed. Sounded really poor to me

Yeah, I've had few Onkyo bits and pieces and they've all been great so I'd take What Hi-Fi's review with a bag of salt. Sadly, I just can't justify another bluetooth speaker (esp. as I'd need another Chromecast Audio for it) when the above mentioned Google Home enabled speakers are close to release.

I think these are brand licensed by Gibson Innovations and not designed/manufactured by Onkyo directly.

Perhaps Onkyo haven't paid What Hifi for a while? They don't seem to have reviewed any Onkyo home cinema gear for years.

Funny that isn't it

I ended up caving and going for this. Arrived yesterday. Oddly, they've sent the silver version but not really fussed colour-wise.

In terms of sound it's a really nice little speaker. It's certainly not gonna pump out huge bass but the sound is nicely balanced and perfect for round the house.

Overall, impressed for the money but think at RRP it would have been a push.

Oh, and the fact it charges by USB is the reason i went for it. My Sony speaker has a huge power brick and a barrel connector.
