DALI Ikon On-Wall

Really good wall speakers. Sounded really bad when unpacking IMO. The two tweeters sounded like it had phase shifts, or the like. First thought to return them because of this, but after some playing, they released a total and now they're really good. The downside is the bass response well in my opinion. Should have any subwoofer, support at the bottom.

Really good subwoofer for a cheap price. Was pleasantly surprised that it still sounds so good to be a flat and small bass box. I run it as a base pad for what my wall speakers in the living room is not able to reproduce. Run it then not as a filmbaslåda. For music, I think it works well, even in my rather large living room with openings in all directions. Biggest minus is that it does not have "auto-standby" and it's a pain to have to go and press the power button located at on and switching-off of the base unit.

Run this together with a Western Digital drive of 500 GB which reflects the Seagate disk sitting in on delivery. Seagate disk does not seem to be the sharpest, but it certainly is good enough ..... if it endures? Has always been a bit negative towards Netgear and their networking products, but this seems to do what it should. The only minus so far is somewhat slow web interface (eg hangs rescan the media button in the interface even though the syncat clear). However, nothing I bothering me a lot on. Have it connected to a compatible UPS (APC ES 700) via RJ-11 to USB and it works great! UPS can handle 35 minutes without power, and it is full-load at the NAS, modem, router and cordless phones. Have set up so it's spin-down of the disks after 10 minutes (can set it in 5-minute intervals) and the relay when only a few watts. Will measure idle and full-load at the moment with my current meter. Low power consumption is always good if it is on around the clock. Might be good to know if you are looking to drive a mini-ATX PC with FreeNAS so on. The wireless 1080p streaming of HD content from my router worked like clockwork to my PS3a anyway, so "so far so good." Netgear themselves say in their FAQ that it can stream four HD signals simultaneously without problems with frame failure. Nothing I tested myself though. Maybe upgrade the internal memory of this NAS also .... will see if 256MB is enough, or not. If it does not, will the 1GB of internal memory instead. This NAS is acting music and movie server in my home.

Have had this a few months now and I think it's a great router! Fast and good with dual wireless channels! Have never had any problems to stream HD signals wirelessly. Have all of the configuration options I wanted. However, they could have done without the USB connector for external HDD. The dividend is a little too complicated to do in my opinion. Buy a loose NAS if you are looking for it. Good wireless range despite internal antenna behind the dark plastic. If I'm going to say something negative about it, it is well that it looks like a self-propelled vacuum cleaner if it lies down (maybe not so much care about whether you have hidden it as I do) and the external power converter and the absence of switch . My previous Linksys router (which had a similar power supply solution) died at a åsknedlag, even though it was connected to a UPS. Poor power supply? Dried not take issue with the UPS manufacturer due to the cost of the last router, so I bought this instead. Do not regret it for shit! Better in every way. Linksys, these stuff. Thumbs up!

Does what it should. Lacks backlighting, but one can not have everything for the money it costs. Doch nice to be able to operate the machine "out of sight".

Good machine for the money! But can do a lot with it. However, little pity with the audio format FLAC as it does not fully support without conversion. A small IR receiver built into the front had not any errors.
