Craig Bluetooth Convertible Speaker Tower 3-in-1 Soundbar
Good sound upgrade
As soon as the box arrived, I cracked it open and hooked it up to my 40" Proscan tv in the becroom. This thing is BIG and it just fit on the same shelf as the TV. I may choose to go free-standing instead. This can easily be setup as a speaker tower with the included solid-feeling base. This makes more sense since the buttons are at the top of the speaker. Now for setup: hook-up was a breeze but I was getting only static regardless of the # of times I pressed the SOURCE button. I gave up and came back to it later. I played with some of the audio settings on my TV (I ended up changing nothing at all) and then suddenly success! The sound is quite good.... for a bedroom tv setup. I wonder why such old-style RCA jacks are used for the sound connection. My tv has Digital Audio Out. There should be a matching input on the speaker but no. Now for the remote: yes, it is small and it feels flimsy and fragile but it did work for me just fine. I decided to try the bluetooth and pair it up with my tablet. I hit the Source button until the blue light was blinking and then I scanned on the tablet. Synching was complete and I was playing music in no time. The volume seemed quite low but I'm sure there are several ways to compensate for that. One oddity: the equalizer button on the remote seems to do nothing but I probably need to read the flimsy and not too informative user guide again. This was clearly a translation from another language which is always irritating. Craig is a company that has been around for years so there is no excuse. All in all, I am quite satisfied and would recommend for a smallish room.
Nice Sound - Poor Remote
I like the sound it puts out.. Much better than the flat screen, but they dropped the ball with the remote... Half the time, mine won't work, unless I get up and hold it within three feet of the speaker itself - And that's with a new battery... Wish there were some way to use my regular remote with it.
Love this speaker.
It is wonderful. The sound on the TV is so much clearer now. Also wanted it for the sound on DVD's, that is also excellent. My cable has a box, so you have to connect it to the cable box for it to work.
not very loud
Im not very happy with it not very loud at all,but I bought it as a gift.l would not buy another one
We are really enjoying this product. Sound is great especially when watching movies. We did have problems hooking it up. Should have been super simple and finally figured out we had to hook it up to our cable box and not the tv. Pretty sure we had to do that because of our LG television. Used Google for this issue and seemed to be common with the LG brand. Hope this helps if anyone else is having a problem. Have also used our iPhone's with this and love it!
