Anyone looking for a compact kitchen radio, do it right and really good music, in a beautiful wood enclosure, digital channels, dominated, streaming services, deals and also plays CDs, will eventually in the name of the Neuss-based manufacturer Sonoro. Ingenious contraptions that take over in the bedroom, the Wake-up call, or next to the shower installation, are also among the specialties of the house. Now Sonoro dares new Terrain, with a music system to classic HiFi-recipes. The sit up: he Can exist in one of the established brands in the densely populated environment?
The complete System consists of three components: the Receiver Maestro, which combines all of the electronics and 1300 euros, and the speakers, Orchestra for the pair price is 1000 Euro, which saw only a few days ago the official light of the world. Before we pried the Receiver out of its box, donned only once the supplied cotton gloves. The device is in a high-gloss lacquered wood Cabinet, the fingerprints, mercilessly showing.

We prefer to have downloaded an appropriate App, and everything from your Smartphone done. Another App, the Sonoro Room Correction, you can optimize the sound, to fat basses, slim down electronic waste. For this purpose, the mobile unit sends test signals to the system, its built-in microphone captures the playback and derives the Filter settings. However, the thing only works with iOS devices. In the Android world, the diversity of the microphones would be too great a risk.
