Sound
Sound wise to Porto the category that provides a non-tiring experience. Nature is neutral and works fine for most music types, possibly missing some heat in the registry. Porto sounds good at low volume and can not push so hard that the sound burst and sounds bad. Given the compact format can deliver real Porto high noise level the times, for example, you want to spread the sound of more than one place at a time.

 

All compact audio facilities have limited stereo width. Many manufacturers are trying to counter this by various tricks (cheating stereo), which invariably distorts the sound, and sounds bad. Porto should, with its narrow, upright design is physically unable to give any kind of stereo effect, but Porto are doing well here as well as other smaller systems that take place on the width instead.


Science
Since the 1980s success with small active loudspeakers, and a large amount low base loudspeakers ever since, Audio Pro has used its own technology ace-bass to get big bass from small speaker boxes / speaker driver.

 

Audio Pro continues this tradition by technology to Porto use of the Swedish-developed one-point stereo speaker technology EmbracingSound. With this technology available through an airy sound from two closely placed loudspeaker elements for mid / treble, separated by an acoustic separator.

 

It is very interesting to read about how this stunt works, for all of us who got us in the classical stereo configuration with an equilateral triangle with the tips broken left speakers, right speakers and the listener's head.


Design
Audio Pro Porto has a solid, minimalist, intelligent and stylish appearance. Building on the height gives the advantage that it is easy to put Porto almost anywhere. An underlying CD cases take up more footprint than Porto. Front side and the back has a rubberized, matte finish while the rest are dressed in leather. The color choice is between black, red and white. Speaker Lot tygfront stuck magnetic and can easily be taken away.

 

Porto weighs much less than, for example, the iPod Hi-Fi. The battery pack sits at the bottom is still steadily Porto. Power / charge provided by a compact nätdel integrated into the wall socket. It is also possible to operate Porto with 12 V dc from, for example, car, boat or camper. Operating time on fully charged battery is four hours with normal volume.

 
Operation
To pack up and start using Porto is simple, it applies only to choose the right adapter for your iPod, which then replaces the cap over the docking connector. The data on the carton and in the stylish instruction manual made me from the beginning to think that my old 4G iPod 20 GB en / v is not supported by Porto, but here handled all the iPod that has docking contact without problems.

 

The controls are very easy and self explanatory, and doubled in the small remote control. It is only if you want to change the playlist or on your iPod as you need to go in close contact with Porto. Besides the iPod, you can choose two line inputs or the built-in RDS radio as the sound source.

 

Radio section is not directly ratings but is doing its job. There is no antenna input, is not the built-in telescopic antenna to go there at least to switch to mono in order to avoid too noisy reception. Preseeding channels is not possible without the will to press their way from channel to channel.

 

The backlight of the display is lit constantly when Porto is running. Here it would be desirable to have an attitude to get it to burn out after a while. There is not anyone who wants white ghostligt started when listening in a dark room.


Final Verdict
Audio Pro Porto is not the cheapest of the speaker solutions for the iPod. However it sounds really good and much larger than its modest exterior, combined with a very practical and stylish design. It tastes so it cost.

 

Do you think that musicality, sound quality and smart design are important factors. Then Audio Pro Porto deliver clearly value for the money.
