RCA RS2538 Mini Systems

RS2538

- Custom 3-Band Equalizer - Allows for manual adjustment of bass, treble and mid-range according to personal preference.
- Preset Equalization - Preassigned equalization of bass, treble and mid-range for optimum sound performance. Labeled for use with corresponding types of music (Jazz, Pop, Rock and Classic).
- Built-In Subwoofer with Multi-Amplification - Using more than one amplifier per channel, Multi-amplification or Bi-amping, divides the frequency range into two pieces: Low and Mid to High range frequencies. Power is then focused where it is needed, resulting in better sound with depth and range.
- Surround Sound Function - Allows a listener to experience a realistic multi-channel experience, from any source, through a single pair of loudspeakers.
- Kevlar Speaker Cones - Kevlar, one of the most rigid, durable material used in speaker manufacturing today, ensures clear, crisp sound while minimizing distortion.
- Bass Boost - A push of the button increases the bass for added depth to sound at all levels.
- Soft Dome Tweeters - Dramatically increases sound quality by increasing dispersion, lowering distortion, and responding more accurately to the audio signal.

Strength:

Sound quality of the amp and speakers. The remote is good.

Weakness:

Sound quality of the built-in CD player. Use a separate CD or DVD player and plug it in the back.

This unit is fantastic to use along with your video system. Movie soundtracks sound great, and the bass and treble are absolutely superb even for full list price. The midrange is very nice also. The speakers have kevlar drivers, unheard of at this price, and also has a built-in subwoofer. It sounds by far the best with the equalizer set to "flat", but if you live in an apartment you may have to use the "custom" setting with the bass decreased to avoid angering your neighbors. I never use the built-in CD carousel, which is poor sounding, but instead plug in a good quality CD player to the RCA inputs on the rear of the unit. Doing this it sounds GREAT. This is the best audio deal I've ever found on a brand new unit.

Similar Products Used: I've auditioned dozens of other similarly priced units. I always thought Aiwa made the best mini systems, but this one sets the standard.

Strength:

Great Price - Cant believe Wal-Mart has it for $50 cheaper than anywhere else I've found, including E-Stores.

Weakness:

Sound is OK

Good sound, good deal. Other boomboxes may sound better, but at a much greater price. Use it at work and it is on 24 hours a day. 5 disk MP3 playback ensures I never run out of tunes (thats like 1000 songs)
