Got this as ‘as new’ for £27. 00 and for that the item is a total bargain. Great sound and great connection to all bluetooth gadgets we have in our home. Got mine hanging on wall behind tv so now have a bit of bass when watching emmerdale :).
This sound bar is a bargain price currently and as such gets 4 stars for performance, at its rrp of a hundred it would have been three, as its a completely different price bracket. The box arrives and its big and you wonder how big this speaker is, thankfully its smaller than the box but it is large at about a metre approx. Do check it suits your space. Not sure why it’s described as wooden because as you see in pictures its black plastic. It looks nice and smart, would fit most decor. The instructions are basic and could have done with more descriptionthe unit comes with a remote and batteries, plenty of buttons on it. You can use this to control playback. Turning the unit on the display is very basic and the digets didn’t show properly. But now the good part- the important part- the sound quality.
I won’t go into lots of technical detail about this soundbar, as to be honest i’m not technically minded, and my only priority is how it sounds. It’s pretty easy to set up, and it was a quick and simple process to pair it to the various bluetooth enabled items we have. It was also quick and easy to use a wee extension cord to plug my aged ipod into the back of it. The sound is very good – not the absolute best if you’re a music purist, but it’s crisp and clear, the treble and bass controls do a good job of changing it to the kind of sound you prefer, and it will go to a good loud volume. I hadn’t realised quite how big this soundbar is, you’ll need a good amount of space if you want to have it on a surface, but it’s wall mountable – it is rather heavy though, so you’d have to make sure your wall can support the weight. This is a very good price for a good quality soundbar, i’m very happy with it. Here are the specifications for the Ricco 320 W 2 Channel tooth Soundbar Hi-Fi Speaker:

Good bit of gear for the price. . The sound bar is a great bit of gear, it isn’t 320w as in the title, but it still sounds amazing and with the benefit of a subwoofer output/control you can have a good setup, as well as the optical input, all good for this price range. Only slight problem i had was on the digital display one of the character displays isn’t fully working, it doesn’t effect the operation of the unit though so i’m not going to worry about getting a replacement etc but i’m sure if i did the supplier would be ok about it. You will need to buy an optical, aux or coax cable as well. Bluetooth connection is simple and no problems with connecting multiple devices at separate times. Sound via bluetooth is still good quality. The remote is slightly cheaply made but it still functions fine, although there maybe slight problems in the future with buttons sticking, but i’ll cross that bridge if i come to it. All in all for the price its great, either wall or desk/tabletop mountable. The radio picks up signal well too. For now happy with this item.
The main problem here is interference when using blue tooth items – both the ipad and ipod both experienced some notable humming when sent to the thing. But plugged into the source – i’ve replaced my pc speakers and it’s pretty good.
Reviews from purchasers :
- It’s pretty easy to set up
- Dead easy to set up
- It provides a good sound and is easy to set up
Remote not working and cant find way to buy new one ?.
Great value, strong sound, good for ipod owners. Plus points – really great price; great sound quality; good fm radio; even an idiot like me managed to connect this to my son’s ipod and play some of his music list; really good for ipod and ipad owners and those in a post cd world; bluetooth connected so you do not have to physically connect the ipad to the speakers. Less good points – bulky; a metre long so you have to have somewhere to put it, though it can be wall mounted; no digital or long wave radio; quite basic instructions which took a while to fathom. I am still trying to work out how to pre-programme the radio.
