A MUSIC SYSTEM WITH MANY NAMES â€"

AND JUST AS MANY FEATURES/USES.... Call this “Portable Party System w/Bluetooth & NFCâ€� as Sony does on this website, or call it “Personal Audio Systemâ€� as in the printed users’ manual, or even call it “The Official Personal Audio System of the 2014 FIFA World Cup (Brasil)â€� as marked on the rather substantial shipping carton. Wisely, Sony has nicknamed this music system the “G-Tankâ€�, so for short I will, too. And its no wonder they chose that name, because this elegant audio device really is built like a tank â€" 30 inches tall and 30 lbs. of sleek and gleaming black â€" it is definitely not a sling-it-over-your-shoulder boom box. But, set it down on a table or ledge, or stand it up vertically on the floor; plug it into an AC outlet, and you have the makings of a formidable 2-way speaker system with dual woofers and tweeters driven by 420 watts total RMS power. There are 11 preset equalizer settings to choose from [such as Flat, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, Rock, Jazz, Salsa, Dance â€" you get it…]. If that sounds too tame for you, select the Bazuca bass boost, just don’t say I didn’t warn you! Add a music source and you can project it from whisper soft to room-filling loud. A large room, or your terrace or patio. The Volume display LED goes to “50 - Maxâ€� but you are likely to rattle your windows or your neighbors â€" I’m finding I mostly set it between ‘20’ and ‘35’. Did I mention the G-Tank’s multi-color LEDs (14 music-synched patterns with strobe) and Isolator/Flanger DJ effects? Call it: Instant Party Time! What strikes me about the G-Tank is its versatility and ease of use. I can control all of it’s features and settings using the included palm-sized IR remote control (RM-AMU166). Sony even includes two AA/R6 batteries for it. There is a built-in Clock/Timer, a 30-minute Standby mode, and even a Child Lock feature (think about that). Clip on the included FM/AM antenna and the G-Tank becomes a stereo/mono broadcast receiver with 20 FM and 10 AM presets. Sony’s One-Touch Listening capability allows me to connect the G-Tank with any compatible device via Bluetooth or using an NFC tap. Also, there’s a stereo RCA-type Aux-In jack on the back for almost any music player that can output to a headphone. If you have an iPhone 5 or an iPod Touch (5th generation) or an iPod Nano (7th gen), you can place it directly into the front-panel’s neat dock/charger with 8-pin connector, or connect it via the USB slot just beneath the dock. I don’t normally use an iPhone or iPod, but I did connect an older iPod 4Gb (A1051) by simply plugging it into the Aux In jack I mentioned. I used a 3.5 mm stereo mini-male to RCA audio cable that I had, which I now leave connected to the back panel to easily switch between several attached devices as needed. Curious, I decided to see which music sources around my house I could connect to my G-Tank. I used the built-in NFC capability to wirelessly connect my Android Tablet (it is a Sony Xperia Tablet Z). I dug out my Sony Discman ESP CD Compact Player from 1997 and used the Aux Input with that 3.5mm Male/RCA cable; then I did the same with our 1997 boom-box-styled Sony CD/Radio/Cassette Corder (via its headphone jack). It would have been a nice touch if Sony included a 3.5mm Male/RCA cable in the box, there was none. Before you accuse me of nostalgia for ancient Sony music players, think about it, those 16-year-old Sony machines still work and I can listen to them in 2013, which bodes well for the useful lifespan of Sony’s G-Tank! [Actually, I don’t really recommend trying to listen to such old cassette tapes…] Now what are my current listening alternatives? Almost unlimited, really: FM/AM local broadcast; CD or Cassette; any internet music, audio, game or video sources via Android apps on my Xperia Tablet Z; most other auxiliary sound inputs, such as an iPod, my MacBook Pro, or my LifeStyle 20 that I’ve replaced with the G-Tank for HDTV playback; or, USB thumb drives (FAT16- or FAT32-formatted): AAC, MP3, WAV, WMA files; etc. Uh, Karaoke not … too bad there doesn’t seem to be a simple pathway to add Karaoke to my B-Tank parties, like connecting a microphone in tandem with another sound source. I suppose one could attach some pre-amp/mixer type of black box, or am I being naïve? BTW, the first CD I listened to was the Giogio Moroder soundtrack from the movie Midnight Express that I popped into my resurrected Sony Discman, set the G-Tank to ‘DVD/PC’, equalizer to ‘Flat’, volume to ‘35’, and ‘Bazuca’ bass boost â€" wow! My only real issue so far is that the printed users’ manual falls short of this device’s capabilities. Some sections are too brief to be helpful â€" such as p.13 Connecting iPod/iPhone to the USB port â€" which forces a user like me to look elsewhere for answers and solutions. I would have much preferred a detailed how-to video from Sony. Here’s a helpful hint: whether the party is at your place or you bring the G-Tank to the party, everyone is likely to want to connect their own devices and playlists â€" so, Keep Control Of The Remote! I highly recommend the Sony “G-Tankâ€� for its overall value, quality sound and quality build. It is incredibly versatile and easy to use; best get one for yourself before the next party!

The sound and portability of this speaker are awesome. In theory, and when its working this is a great speaker. However, the bluetooth connectivity is so bad that I would not recommend this speaker to anyone. It has gotten progressively worse, until the point where I can't get through 30 seconds without some sort of choppiness or silence. I can literally set my laptop inches away from the speaker and the bluetooth is still terrible. I haven't had this speaker for more than a year and I treat it very well. I hope it was sold to me with the defect because if all of the speakers are this unreliable I would not say its worth the money.

Impressive.....very impressive

By 

from Versailles, KY 40383, USA

Comments about Sony Portable Party System With Bluetooth:

It seems to be universal that this device is loved by all that are fortunate enough to own one. Mine is fresh out of the box a few hours ago. No issues with functionality. Bluetooth loaded immediately and we be jammin' since!! The sound pressure (volume) level out of this thing has to be heard to be believed!!...and its loud and clear. If you have good source material there is very little to no distortion at high volume. At 35 pounds....this is not your average boom box. Its as large as a stage monitor. You need mass for premium sound. My primary reason for buying this item is for my daughter's upcoming wedding in St Thomas, USVI this summer. We were in need of music for the reception....and I had to have something I can put in checked baggage. My ONLY area of disappointment is that there is no built-in rechargeable battery. It has to be plugged in. Not to worry. I'll fix that with a car battery and a 600 watt sine-wave inverter for the occasions when no outlet is available. Its just what engineers do......figure out solutions. So.....Sony engineers.....put a battery in the thing and make it truly portable. Or maybe come up with an outboard power supply and sell it as an option. That would be better. Its heavy enough as is.

Eye Candy With Excellent Sound

By 

from North Carolina, USA

Comments about Sony Portable Party System With Bluetooth:

My wife got this for me as an early Christmas gift and i love it. The led colors really catch your eye and the nfc and bluetooth comes really handy. The sound is crisp and the bass is outstanding. I haven't really turned it all the way up but i'm sure it'll do fine. Don't expect it to do miracles like other products because the product is clearly a portable boom box, but that's what's great about it. Not a whole lot of cables to deal with but it'll surely beat other sound shelf systems. Its sitting in my living room as a tv sound system.

      Comments about Sony Portable Party System With Bluetooth:

      A glimpse of Sony getting back on their game as it reminds you of the quality products they are capable of producing. These speakers sound phenomenal with very strong bass and clarity. The music has presence and easily fills the room. The build quality is solid and excellent all around.

      The LED light show is very good but makes you want more flash. The LEDs can also be turned off completely. The included remote is nice and functional as well.

      I was impressed with this unit the moment I first saw it and have been extremely pleased every day I've used it. It's one of those products that puts a smile on your face every time you use it. Very highly recommended.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The service and quick shipping from ABT was excellent. Just know that they slap a shipping label on the product box due to its size but it is very well packed. My speaker arrived in excellent condition and works perfectly.
