Samsung R6 review

 

A clever wireless speaker, but can it compete in a crowded market?

Clear and balanced sound ; Hi-res support ; Smart, sleek design ; Rechargeable battery ; Extensive streaming services ; Lovely app

Soft bass ; Lacks attack ; No ethernet port ; No 3.5mm input

With good 360 degree sound, multi-room features and a portable design, the R6 is worth a flutter

Samsung R6 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The stylish yet somewhat eggy design of the Samsung R6 is certainly attractive. Differing from its siblings, it's the only one in the R range with battery power. But that comes at a cost - the £330 price tag may leave some a little shell shocked. All...

Samsung R6 360 Wireless Speaker Review

 

Samsung's new R6 portable wireless speaker not only includes multiroom capabilities but also uses 360 degree technology to give sound a new direction.

Excellent sound quality ; No sweet spot ; Effective multiroom app ; Easy to setup and control ; Flexible and portable

Slightly lacking in bass ; More expensive than competition

SAMSUNG R6 360° Wireless Smart Sound Multi-Room Speaker - Black

 

I do like the built in battery. I also like the 360 degree sound.

I bought 2 speakers, 1 had to be returned. It would not connect via Bluetooth. This highlighted the fact there are no hard wire connection sockets (a pity).

SAMSUNG R6 360° Wireless Smart Sound Multi-Room Speaker - Black, Twin Pack Bundle

 

Good product ...

fiddly to start up (which is why I nearly didn't buy it from other reviews). Sound is good but Bluetooth range in my house is less than 10 feet.
