House of Marley's wooden speaker shakes the Foundations
Tv & Audio
I don't know about you, but if I was spending 1000 bucks on a wireless speaker, I'd want it to look special, kind of like the gorgeous House of Marley One Foundation.
This speaker is constructed from renewable oak wood and plastic.
It's minimalist and classy and it comes with a really stylish remote as well.
This speaker offers Bluetooth, optical, digital, and wi-fi connections.
It has both Apple Airplay and the lesser known All Play, which lets you stream from your phone, or Napster, or Spotify.
But it's one thing to look nice and have cool features But it needs to perform as well.
Despite being named after a reggae legend, it actually works better with non-bassy music.
It has a nice warmth to it, which suits rock and acoustic tunes.
If you want more bass you can connect a sub to the line out, and this works well.
And while it can deal out some loud rock, the One Foundation is not the best deal for the money.
You'll get better music performance out of a dedicated sound byte and sub combo.
Maybe you could look at a sound bar such as the Sony HTNT5, which is $200 cheaper.
But in all, this is a pretty nice unit.
