This is a speaker, so we should at least evaluate the audio quality of the speaker.
Here is a quick video of the Sony playing Tron.
The sound isn’t exactly terrible out of the box, unfortunately it’s not exactly good sounding either.
The drivers appear to be driven to distortion! And due to this, there is no timbre to speaker of, the tonal balance is seemed off. Adjusting the volume to find the sweet spot is impossible due to the difficulty when adjusting the volume by hand. Google Home, while not exactly audiophile grade material, is capable of music production. The Sony is a disappointment.
To be fair, I am evaluating the Sony when it’s brand new. Perhaps I should have given more time to allow the drivers to run in?
