AVLabs AVL787 Bedside Companion Speaker System - Final Thoughts

AVLabs are another new company of which we've heard nothing at all about before. We're ready to be impressed...

Final Thoughts

 

The AVlabs Bedside unit is not a product that I'm going to recommend today unfortunately.

Initially, the price of $150 AUD seems quite enticing, but there are a plethora of shortfalls included with the RRP.

 

The build quality is really quite low, certainly not in keeping with the product it's meant to be accompanying from Apple. Thin cheap plastic is the order of the day and the control knobs feel ever so cheap and nasty to boot.

Unfortunately things do not get much better as we moved on to audio quality and the choice of audio equipment chosen. My listening tests were forgettable to say the least, bordering on painful.

 

I might be considered a bit of a hardliner here. However, I ask; what's the purpose of putting all that energy into the manufacturing process of something of this quality? - In this day and age, there should be green house tariffs regulating the production of this stuff. However, if AVLabs have something in the works of decent quality, bring it on! If not, then next please....
