Is it just me or is it pointless to have these as wireless speakers when you have a wall wart & a cable connection between the two speakers?.
No, it's not only you. They should be also battery (and maybe solar) powered. And wirelessly connected together.
It does seem pointless alchobot. There should at least be options for rechargeable, batteries with laptop or induction based charging when used with a desktop.
Well, it's one less cable to connect when you return with your laptop. Clearly, that's the setup these speakers were designed for. Although if you're routinely plugging in a single USB wire, you might as well use a USB sound card/speakers. I can also imagine using it as a dedicated sound-out for mobile phones. Adding a battery or a wireless interconnection (and solar charging? right) would make this a totally different product: more expensive, less compact, worse sounding.What happens to the sound from the Aux-In when audio is streamed via BT? Is it muted or are both sources mixed together? I've often complained that you keep reviewing speakers in the kilobucks range, so I appreciate reviews like this. ;)
Just a warning to anyone thinking of buying these; the cheapest price in the UK appears to be pixmania, and their picture suggests the product you reviewed, as well as the fact that you have pixmania down as your supplier. However, I ordered from them on sunday night, they arrived on thursday, and they were Creative Inspire T12, an american model I think, as there was certainly no bluetooth capability, an aux in on the front in place of the bluetooth button. Hope this helps anyone who might've done what I did. Creative currently offer them for £75 with a free USB or iPod bluetooth adapter, and free delivery (usually £5) if you spend £79.
