Wow. This box is surprisingly heavy for its size. Wonder what's in i — oh. The Peachtree Audio deepblue Bluetooth® music system. That sounds promising.
Hold on. We just listened. It sounds amazing.
Peachtree has a well-deserved reputation for building audio products of uncompromising quality and exceptional performance. Now they bring the same approach to a one-speaker solution for any room in your house: welcome to deepblue.
Primed to supercharge any music source you can stream via Bluetooth from your smartphone, tablet, or computer, the deepblue creates a big lush soundfield thanks to its powerful 240-watt, 5-channel amplifier and on-board digital signal processor. That soundfield is done justice by a complement of five drivers that would be at home in quite a few high-end stand-alone speakers. No apologies are made for this speaker's 16+ pounds; it's a matter of necessity to make this music system live up to the expectations of a Peachtree Audio product. It's solid (yet certainly easy to move from room to room) and built to deliver music with authority.
So where's your stereo?
One of our favorite features is the bass +/- button, which enables you to tailor the bass response to your surroundings. This is a feature that many Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay® speakers simply don't have. And should you wish to use the deepblue as a speaker for other music sources — or if you would rather just bypass Bluetooth as a music delivery medium, the deepblue sports a 3.5mm stereo minijack input, so you can hook up legacy media players, CD players, or even a game console.
Because of this connectivity, you can enjoy your own music library, or streaming services like Pandora® Internet radio or MOG®, anywhere you've positioned the deepblue.
You'll know you've made the right choice if your friends keep asking you where you've hidden your stereo system. The deepblue certainly delivers performance like systems that are a good deal larger.
From our review Peachtree Audio deepblue: High-end performance comes to portable speakers
"Given the quality and performance of deepblue, I had guessed the price tag would be close to four figures. So imagine my surprise when I learned the actual price. I was pretty blown away. That's a lot of power, elegance, and capability for the money — coming from a manufacturer known for delivering exceptional sound."
