Antec AMP SP1 Mobile Bluetooth Speaker Review

Antec SP1 Review


Portable media has come a long way since the early MP3 players. As the capacity of our smart devices increases and they move from a single function into a full-spectrum device, so our demands increase along with them. Whereas once portable audio was a solitary experience we can now carry our entirely library of tunes around in our pocket, so the need to be able to share them with others increases too.

Of course even the best smart phones around have pretty feeble speakers, as anyone who has had to endure someone in public attempting to share their song of choice can attest. It’s more of a paper-and-comb sound than something you want to listen to. Thus speakers with easy connectivity are a rapidly growing area of the market, and Antec have dipped their toes into the water with the SP1 Bluetooth speaker.

Technical Specifications

It’s not the tiniest thing you can imagine, but certainly reasonably small. The very square design and sharp edges means it takes up a larger amount of pocket space than a more well thought out design would have, but it’s light and if you’re the type who often carries a bag with them then it is eminently portable.
