IPod users not only, but also all other music collector of this world should immediately think about the purchase of a compact plant: Finally, there are the Yamaha TSX-130. The all-rounder of the Japanese full sortimenters is a multimedia system that leaves nothing to be desired. Whether CD or USB flash drive or external hard drive – the TSX-130 takes all on the line. Only one limitation: the data must be in MP3 or WMA format. Also the integrated tuner made a neat figure – the sound via FM convinced anyway, without trade-offs.
The two game joyous eight centimeter wide strips are almost standard on docks and provide ordinary hullabaloo in the TSX-130. The case, however, can not keep up of VitaAudio or the Edifier with. The obligatory tapping test revealed a hollow sound. Acoustically, all clear can be given but, tonally does not adversely affect but the low use of materials. Rather for the sitting a little too deep in the case chassis, which easily diffuse sound in the frequency range in slightly laterally offset listening position.
But when a listener about two metres upstream of the system comes the big surprise: the Yamaha TSX-130 unleashed a true firework of dynamic and amazing adult plays. The two small drivers Potter here thanks to excellent DSP vote so deeply and precisely, you may hardly believe to have only a compact unit on. With trouble (though understandable) made it the model S of Geneva only through more pressure in the bass and a somewhat more dynamic style of play, to keep the Yamaha TSX-130 at a reasonable distance.
