    You can switch sources and adjust bass/treble to your liking. Each ported cabinet is about 13-inches high, has a 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter.
    Price: Rs 9,299

    Speakers you place on a bookshelf need to do more than just offer good sound - they should look the part too. This stereo setup from F&D looks drop-dead gorgeous with a two-tone wooden (MDF) cabinet, slanted design and transparent speaker grille. This is a self powered system - no separate amplifier is needed. All you need to do is connect it to a wall socket and supply your audio source via Bluetooth, USB, optical or RCA input. This means it has multiple uses: you can connect it to a TV, set top box, phone, tablet or laptop. In addition, the USB port can play MP3/WMA files from any conventional USB flash drive (hard drives not supported).

    The company F&D (aka Fenda Audio) has been around in India since 2004 and they currently have 40 different products in the market, including soundbar, stereo, 2.1, 4.1 & 5.1 channel speakers. This has to be one of their most beautiful designs yet.

    Except a volume knob on the back, all controls are on the supplied infrared remote control. You can switch sources and adjust bass/treble to your liking. Each ported cabinet is about 13-inches high, has a 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter. Total power output is 120 Watts RMS (60W RMS per speaker). They didn't sound too great at first but after a 'break-in' period of a few days, the sound really matured. They sound rich, full-bodied and are loud enough for a small party at home. The only issue we faced was with the Bluetooth 4.0 connection which didn't seem to work reliably with all devices. In case the sound drops, you can always use another device or use a wired connection. If you're looking for an affordable, powerful and beautiful set of stereo speakers for your home, the R60BT will make a great addition.
