Cheap and cheerful. Inoffensive sound and stands up well against other well-known brands. Closest comparison appears to be the Control 1 and I would choose the Achat any day.

Feels well built, can take a bit of knocking about and does exactly what you'd expect from a small loudspeaker without trying to exceed itself.

It's not a 5 star loudspeaker as expected but it defiantly punches above it's weight. For what it is and at such a reasonable price it certainly deserves it's place on the kit-list.

It would be nicer without the glaring, white brand badge on the front but that's easily concealed...
