Wireless Connectivity Failed

  • Summary: I purchased this item after a great deal of research. Let's start with the good points first.. and it has many. 1. Sound Quality: It simply sounds great. I listened to some Bose system and numerous other brands and it's in a class of it's own. I bought it based on reviews and without hearing it first. I wasn't disappointed in that respect. 2. Build quality: Again, it is 1st class.

OK sound but defective; Quality issues. Not good.

  • Summary: I read all the great reviews online especially in British websites and decided to try it. The mid range and highs sounded perfect. The bass was a disaster. Not "tight bass" like they say in their manual but a hollow mess. No matter where you positioned it, even in a corner like the manual suggested it it distorted the great highs. I could have lived with this only to find out that the product was defective. The remote stopped working after 1 use.

Battery performance is dismal...

  • Summary: I have to agree with others that there is a battery issue with this product. The first thing you have to realize is that it will not charge unless it is in 'on' or 'standby' mode. I received a response from Arcam confirming this. However, when I noticed that the performance was only 2-3 hours even with the iphone charge turned off, that was just unacceptable. When I sent a note to Arcam about this, I received no response at all. They can have it back.

  • Summary: very disapointed with this and am returning it. The problem i have with it is the mid range sounds terable, totally flat and lifeless. it sounds like it distorts even at low volumes which is odd when it copes with the bass ok. The high end sound great but is pointless when thats all you get. high and low end totally let down by a mid range that sounds like its in a fish tank. really gutted i'm taking it back as i like the portability and usually love arcam.

Not as good as advertised

  • Summary: We have bought a pair of this rCube speakers. I am a little bit dissapointed because the battery level goes to 0 after 2-3 days even when they are off. The problem is that we charge fully the battery, then we disconnect the AC adaptor and switch the main power button (rear panel) to off mode, so the unit is not consuming energy.

The problem is that we charge fully the battery, then we disconnect the AC adaptor and switch the main power button (rear panel) to off mode, so the unit is not consuming energy. We can't understand, then, way in this not consuming mode the battery level goes to 0 after 2-3 days even if the unit is not used during that period.

  • Summary: Beware 500 quid is alot of money for a dull sounding bit of kit in my opinion.All the features dont help a jot,its for musical pleasure,not for carring around the house or garden. And if its so great,can someone explain why they have dropped the price by 150 quid in six months?Guess what its not that good. Marketing i fell for it,never again! Its on ebay now and back to a normal amp and speakers,two speakers,stereo sound,bliss.
