SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good, and good support 01/22/2015

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46

Pros: Small, convenient for Android devices, large capacity

Cons: Make sure to test it

Other Thoughts: Bought 2, one worked, one didn't. Setup RMA, replacement arrived promptly and worked fine. The OTG worked fine with my Sony Xperia (KitKat), Toshiba Thrive (Jellybean), and an Acer Iconia (Jellybean). Not USB 3.0, but that would cost more.

Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice for smaller room 05/29/2014

This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

Pros: Clear mids and surprising bass, seem to be well made, easy to listen to (not fatiguing). Good bookshelves for smaller room, may not need sub if you can place them optimally. Very nice speakers for the price.

Cons: Highs (bells, cymbals) are clear, but don't 'shine'. Placement may be an issue for best bass response (see owners manual). Owners manual has conflicting info on impedance (says 8 ohms one place and 6 ohms another). Also, can't set on their side unless you use foam pads (mopads).

Other Thoughts: I am used to 90's JBLs with titanium tweeters. Yes JBLs can be fatiguing after a while because the highs are so shrill, and sibilance (S's sounding scratchy) can be an issue. Played through Marantz CD 5004 player and Yamaha RX-V867 (95 WPC) in a 16 x 30' room with a Polk PSW505 sub taking everything below 100Hz.. These Pioneers take quite a bit more power (85dB versus 91 dB sensitivity), and don't fill the room like 3-way floor standers. I set the Yamaha to 6 ohm minimum just in case. I wasn't expecting to replace my JBLs but I wanted to see what the little Pioneers would do!

Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Large room power 03/03/2014

This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single

Pros: Auto-on, good clean bass, powerful enough to fill a large (20' wide x 32' deep x 16' high) room.

It is front driven, so if you set it on carpet, the sound doesn't get eaten.

Cons: Large, LOUD, better invite the neighbors for a few miles around.

Other Thoughts: I have this running with very clean 90's vintage JBL LX-44 3-way floor-standers (8" woofers). They are rated down to 45 Hz, but they just don't have the power to thump the room. I'm an electric bassist that loves to hear clean bass lines in rock and jazz-fusion. I used to play through a 2x15" cabinet, which would rattle windows. This sub can make me remember how that felt.

I set my Yamaha RX-V867 (95 WPC) to Xover at 100 hz, and let the Polk take the lower range. That makes the subwoofer output only send the lower frequencies to the Polk, and above 100Hz to the JBLs. So I end up with a '4 way' speaker system (titanium tweeters, 4" mid, 8" mid-bass, 12" bass).
