Yamaha PDX-11 audio system overview

What this column least of all looks like is a column, from the outside it resembles some kind of device for heating a home, slightly looks like a lantern, and even in some ways - like a small vacuum cleaner (I didn’t invent this, but one Buddy). For Yamaha, where all devices are similar in style, this is a bit of an odd move - retro reigns everywhere in the lineup, and the PDX-11 seems to have been made by other designers. But maybe it's good, I think so. Because there is definitely nothing similar.

The main part of the case is made of plastic, deliberately rough, on the front panel there is a metal insert with holes, it covers the speaker of the device. On top - a massive metal carrying handle (and because of it PDX-11 looks even more like a radiator), a cradle for Apple devices, on the back - a diffuser hole, a power supply input, a 3.5 mm jack for connecting additional devices.

In the same place, behind - a battery pack, the column can be powered by six AA batteries. The stated operating time is about eight hours, in my opinion, this is great, you can safely take the speaker with you on a picnic. Soon it will be very relevant, let's hope that spring will come.

You can choose from several colors, I got the most boring PDX-11, all black. I like yellow with black more.

Device dimensions 237 x 240 x 211 mm, weight 1.5 kg, very large box, keep in mind if you are planning to give such a gift.

I can't help but note the brutality of the device, there are exposed bolt heads on the front, and rough plastic nearby, and angular shapes. For lovers of men's things, it is very suitable.

Management

It is very good that they did not forget to add a remote control to the kit, with its help you can easily control playback, adjust the volume and so on. On the top of the speaker there is a power button, two volume buttons, retro-style indicator lights. There are no problems with the control, if you are planning to take the PDX-11 to nature, it is better to leave the remote control at home, otherwise you will lose .< /p>

Compatibility

The instructions say that the speaker can work with all current iPhone, iPod Classic, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, I tried it with iPhone 4S and iPod Classic, no problems, everything works quite well. If you are not too lazy to reach out, then you can control playback directly from your phone or player.

You can connect any other device to the speaker using an audio cable, it's a pity that this cable is not included, many users will not go to the store to buy such a thing, because people are lazy. But you can even connect your old CD player to the PDX-11 and get a compact music center.

Sound quality

Despite its small size, I can't call the PDX-11 just an iPhone charging cradle - yes, it can do it, but it also sounds very good. Reminds older Yamaha, except that you need to make allowances for one speaker - but it's good. The volume reserve is very large, the device can easily sound even a large room. It seems to me that this is a good one for use in the office, especially if you are sitting in a separate office. And the design is interesting, and you can turn on the music and charge the iPhone. Since the PDX-11 doesn't have a clock or an alarm, it doesn't make sense to use it in the bedroom - although if you're renting an apartment and looking for an inexpensive, stylish system for a separate room (say, the kitchen), then the PDX-11 will do just fine.

Conclusions

In retail, the device costs about five thousand rubles, which, it seems to me, is quite adequate. Good sound quality, nice angular design, battery operation, cradle for Apple devices. Before the summer season, it seems to me that PDX-11 may be relevant for many. I can only recommend the gadget for purchase, I liked the PDX-11.
