Tego Audio NOVA Mini Portable Speakers

Submitted by on July 29, 2012 – 5:23 amOne Comment

This center chamber is where your bass comes from, and while I was at first skeptical that something like that would produce clear sounds; I have to say that in the end I was quite impressed. I ran the gambit on it, listening to every music style from bluegrass to rap to operatic – and the bass was always clear and crisp, with no distortion even at the highest levels. The highs were not always as rich as I would have liked them (especially when listening to some Bocelli), but that’s not what these speakers are designed for. The fact that they came through as well as they did with the bass so high really impressed me.

As far as control goes, the NOVA speakers have all their buttons as touch points on their “legs”. One has the power button (hold it for two seconds to turn on or off), another has the volume up button, and a third has the volume down. It’s nice because not having buttons stick up everywhere really keeps the design flow looking as it should. I would think that stray things popping up on the body would have ruined the aesthetics of the whole thing. Along the base is the UBS jack that you use to charge it – it holds around an eight hour charge on it’s lithium ion battery – and an audio jack.

The audio jack is there because you can daisy chain these things together to create an entire line of speakers; each one adding itself to the sound matrix of the first, and further increasing the depth and complexity of whatever you pump through them. Tego Audio sent me three of the speakers, and I was quite happy to use all three at once. The only caveat I’ve found it the incredibly short cord that they have – it’s only about four inches – which means you can’t space them out very well to create a pseudo “surround” feeling. I understand that the cord needs to be stored around the base to make it more portable, but I would have really appreciated if it came with a separate speaker extension cord so I could have moved them around a bit.
