Definitive Technology W Studio Micro: an elegant high-end soundbarThe Definitive Technology W Studio Micro sounds great and packs a wealth of features into a stylish sound bar/wireless sub system.
[MUSIC] At 900 bucks, this Defintive Technology W Studio Micro is more than most people pay for. [UNKNOWN] But, is this worth the money? It certainly looks the part with an aluminium top, a large wooden sub woofer and a swanky remote control. This unit also sounds good with a very refined performance that's also deepened with music. The fact it will also do multi-room music via the [UNKNOWN] system, is also a plus. Especially if you already have other compatible components. And yet there's a couple of things that give me pores about recommending it. Firstly, that aluminium is sharp, and has scratched my arm leaning over it to plug cables in. I wouldn't trust young kids around it Secondly the Denon Heos HomeCinema sound very similar, has similar features and it cost at least $100 less and it doesnt have pointy edges. The Definitive Technology W Studio Micro is lovely. But its not a super star that the larger Studio W Heos. [MUSIC]
