Speaker system SVEN MS-2100 2.1: review and testing

Multimedia speaker system in the price range of $ 100-150 is a very interesting subject to research. Competition in this segment is high and buyers are sufficiently requiring to the quality of sound, and their needs are very different. Someone wants to buy a classic stereo speaker (format 2.0), not bothering its placement in the room, and someone looks for a multi-channel set (format 5.1), wanting to create a PC-based home theater.

In this to buy multi-channel speaker is not enough: for optimum sound is required the right arrangement in the room and setting the sound source, taking into account the characteristics of a particular room. Without these steps, the whole idea with surround sound will be meaningless. If the user is more likely to listen to music than watch a movie, but at the same time wants to get more bass than regular desktop stereo speaker, you may want to look at the transition option - format 2.1 (stereo with subwoofer).

SVEN MS-2100

This format includes the test kit SVEN MS-2100. It is in one price range with the solutions of other well-known companies, but the presence of a subwoofer promises expanded frequency range, and a card reader and USB interface allow you to listen to music without a connection to PC. What will gain or lose a buyer after purchasing the speaker system 2.1 instead of 2.0? In this review, we will try to find out this issue.

Packaging and content

SVEN MS-2100

Packing of tested model is large enough. It immediately hints that inside there is not a "toy" speakers. The front side of the box has the image supplied set of SVEN MS-2100 and mention about its major features. Among them: the use of interface USB, the presence of SD card-reader and support of two stereo inputs RCA. Also here is remote controller, display and the addition of FM-receiver. All these items increase the convenience and versatility of trend in general. SVEN did not forget to mention about the material of the body: MDF.

On one of the side are sufficiently detailed technical specifications, which also are listed in the table of specifications.

On another side of the package is listed content and photos of remote controller and display with built-in SD and USB port.

SVEN MS-2100

Complete set includes everything you need to run the system. There is even a hanging mounts for the wall. Speaker cables, remote controller with battery, antenna cable and power cord 2 x RCA 3,5 mm are also included.

Design  

SVEN MS-2100

Speaker system SVEN MS-2100 is large enough. For the subwoofer you will need to select a suitable place in the room. And the stereo speakers are not the small sized, and will require some space on your desktop.

SVEN MS-2100

The design is classic and strong. Inserts of black glossy plastic little dilute it, but are easily covered with dust and fingerprints.

SVEN MS-2100

Passive two-way satellites use body of closed type with rather thin walls. At the front they are completely covered with a decorative plastic cover without the safety mesh. At the rear are spring terminals and two holes for the wall bracket.

SVEN MS-2100

At the base of the speakers  have a rubberized stand, elevating them to a few millimeters above the surface of the table.

SVEN MS-2100

The lion's share of the entire set SVEN MS-2100 falls on a subwoofer. This is expected, since it has a fairly large woofer with diameter 176 mm and reinforcement part.

SVEN MS-2100

The front panel has all the controls and a socket of phase inverter. Wheel of volume controller also serves as input selector: to select them, you have to press the regulator. Under it are playback control keys, active when connecting the drives SD or USB.

SVEN MS-2100

The lateral side of the subwoofer has speaker covered by protective cloth.

SVEN MS-2100

In the rear part you can find non-removable, power cord andnetwork switch, RCA jack for connecting the antenna cable and two stereo-RCA for connecting other audio sources. Spring terminals are used to connect the satellites to amplifier block.

SVEN MS-2100

Subwoofer is based on solid rubber legs.

Module of woofer is stamped and magnetic system is ventilated. Its size seems to be quite adequate for the speakers in this price range. On the reverse side of the flange there is a gasket which is used to prevent unwanted air movement.

SVEN MS-2100

The dynamics has the specified nominal impedance (8 Ohms) and power (30 W).

Amplifying part is equipped with a radiator intended to dissipate the heat inside the case. Taking into account the design of phase inverter and low total power, this solution seemed to be justified. Internal port of phase inverter is protected by fabric gasket which does not interfere the air flow, but protects the subwoofer from the penetration of foreign objects or insects.
