Conclusion: At $300, the slick Creative ZiiSound D5 seems a bit overpriced, but what you miss in hi-fi audio performance, you gain in wireless capabilities.
Pros: Quality wireless audio. Simple, visually pleasing design. Bluetooth dongle lets the iPod becomes its own remote control. Works through walls.
Cons: Speakers can't handle deep bass at high volumes. Bluetooth audio signal can be weak—range must stay within roughly 30 feet. When docked, iPod still uses Bluetooth instead of direct connection for audio.
Review: Creative ZiiSound D5 bluetooth wireless speaker system
12 July 2010
Conclusion: Frankly speaking, the Creative ZiiSound D5 is no Harman Kardon, but its stylish looks will prove to be significant to many. Majority of iPod and iPhone bluetooth docking systems will have anticipated problems as we have briefly highlighted in this review and the ZiiSound D5 was no exception.
Pros: Slim, stylish design, Solid build, Clean and tidy, just a power cable, Easy to use, Bluetooth (up to 30 feet) and aux jack for audio connectivity
Cons: Priced relatively high end, Dock functions as power source only not music connection, Laggy bluetooth control, Distorting audio quality with deep bass
Conclusion: What I like the most about the D5 is the sound to size ratio and the versatility of being able to use different devices. For these reasons it will become a permanent resident in the corner of my living room.
Conclusion: The Zii Sound D5 from Creative is a nice, compact way of utilising your MP3 player in a more communal way. The quality is good throughout the frequency range though the bass could do with a little boost.
Pros: Excellent sound, Able to hook up to a variety of players, Looks good
Cons: Bit expensive, Bass is weaker than other frequencies
Conclusion: Hintaseuranta.fi -palvelusta Creative ZiiSound D5:sta ei löytynyt, mutta monesta verkkokaupasta se kuitenkin löytyy ja laitteen hinta maassamme tuntuukin pyörivän arvostelun kirjoitushetkellä 250 - 280 euron välimaastossa.
Pros: Tyylikäs muotoilu, Langattomuus, Lähettimen kantama, Ok -äänenlaatu, iPodin/iPhonen lataustelakka
Cons: Tarkoitettu lähinnä i-soittimille eli ei USB-liitäntää, Lyhyt stereo-stereo -kaapeli, Virtapainikkeen huono sijoittelu, Kallis äänenlaatuun nähden
Conclusion: Originally developed for use in the professional audio and broadcasting sectors, apt-X is a real-time digital audio data reduction system that compresses linear audio samples by a factor of 4:1 with no perceptible audible degradation and with negligible delay.
