What is a Maxell MXSP-BT3100?
Maxell’s quip continues with this nifty-looking Bluetooth advancing speaker, that boasts a Lightning connector to offshoot adult a latest Apple inclination like a iPhone 5S and iPad Air.
After ripping behind onto a stage final year with a glorious Maxell MXSP-SB3000
soundbase, that offers glorious sound peculiarity and inexhaustible features
for a cost that undercuts many rivals, we’re anticipating a association brings
the same value-for-money ethos to this appealing audio solution.
Maxell MXSP-BT3100 – Design
The MXSP-BT3100 is sincerely vast compared with many Bluetooth speakers, though hides it good with some appealing styling. The black and grey finish is neat and tasteful, though it’s a figure that creates a Maxell unequivocally mount out – a front territory is a singular quarrel of grey orator filigree that curves brazen to emanate a height for a dock.
The Lightning connector is positioned in a center of a gloss-black cosmetic recess. It supports iPod Nano 7G, iPod Touch 5G, iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad Mini, though there’s no sustenance for comparison Apple inclination – for those you’ll have to use Bluetooth or bond regulating a cable.
In front of a connector is a quarrel of watchful buttons for up-close control. These embody power, volume, mode preference and mute. On a behind is a 3.5mm minijack submit for other unstable devices, and a leg that props adult a section on a prosaic surface. This gets in a approach of a hollow a little, though isn’t a vital problem. You’ll also find dual keyholes for wall mounting.
Build peculiarity is disappointingly lightweight, utterly a plasticky behind end. The skinny support leg feels like it could mangle utterly simply too. We would accept this arrange of construction from a £50 speaker, though for over £160 we’d pattern something a small some-more luxurious.

The MXSP-BT3100 sports dual 60mm orator drivers and 2 x 25W energy output, with a drum automatic pattern delivering a ‘high-pressure drum response’. Apart from Bluetooth, there are no other features, that is startling during this price.
Oddly, a cheaper MXSP-WP2000 (£110.92) boasts a most improved spec, including Qi charging wireless charging record and Bluetooth 4.0 with NFC, apt-X and AAC support – though it’s reduction powerful.
