The iBall Tarang Lion 2.1 BT K9 2.1 Channel Surround Bluetooth and Home theatre Sound System is an extremely portable and lightweight speaker system which is encased in wood cabinets thereby delivering rich sound quality. The speakers are painted in black color and the setup consists of 1 subwoofer and 2 satellite speakers. The big, round speaker cut-outs give them a wonderful retro look.
The speakers look straight out of the 50s. Completing the retro look are the three chunky round knobs for adjusting the volume, treble and bass levels. The rest of the controls like the play/pause, skip forward and skip back are arranged in a nice arc below the three round buttons. The design is simple, yet practical and looks beautiful. The power button resides on the back side of the sub-woofer.
The iBall Tarang Lion 2.1 BT K9 Speaker is a multi-channel, surround sound speaker setup which delivers rich sound with punchy bass and clear highs and lows while giving a surround sound effect. While the sound quality won’t be able to match up to the more expensive systems, at this price point it is quite a remarkable feat. The frequency response starts from a low 40 Hz. and goes right up to 20 kHz. The peak output is a nice 40W!
The included remote works very well. IBall has made one very thoughtful inclusion of an FM antenna. It improves the reception of the built-in FM radio by quite some margin, which in itself is a handy inclusion. The speaker set also supports music play over Bluetooth along with multiple inputs like USB, SD/MMC as well as Auxiliary input. The inclusion of Bluetooth does away with the hassles of wires and increases the usability of the speakers set.
