Review of Palo Alto Audio Design Cubik Speakers
21 June 2012
Conclusion: The Cubik speaker system is trying to provide an aesthetically appearing and pleasing sound system. The problem is not with the form of the Cubik speakers as they are quite striking and stylish but with the function. The speakers just don’t seem to handle the rigors of deep bass, heavy percussion as source audio especially at higher volumes. While the direct digital connection is nice the playback can still be distorted or buzzing at times.
Pros: Striking design, Low profile
Cons: Not very portable, Expensive, No power button, Distortion with certain musical genres, Lack subwoofer
Excerpt: A great brand name, design, functionality and sound are all the key ingredients of which superb speakers come to fruition. Palo Alto's Cubik speakers are most likely the only pair of angled cubicle speakers you've never seen before. The Cubik's cube design certainly lives up to its name. You may be thinking these pair of speakers are going to set you back a lot, but thankfully that isn't the case. The Cubik will run you just under the $200 price tag.
Conclusion: With the performance of the Cubik speakers a bit of a mixed bag, we’re not convinced by its claim of matching high-end brands like Bose in terms of quality. With this in mind, you’re still paying quite a lot for Palo Alto’s alternative, and while those who would stick to less bass-heavy audio will be impressed, it’s not an area that we expected it to drop points on.
