Our take on the Geneva Sound System Model XS

by Ralph Graves
GeneveaSound Model XL

With the Model XL, you can have music just about anywhere.

Travel with style

The elegant clamshell case of the Geneva Sound System Model XS may remind you of a classic travel clock — until you open it up. Once you see the sleek, Euro-style metal grille and touch-sensitive controls inside, you'll know this is a portable audio system for today's music sources.

The Bluetooth advantage

You can wirelessly stream audio from any Bluetooth-compatible device to the Model XS. The system is ideal whether you're traveling on business, or just for fun. Open up the Model XS in your hotel room and start playing music right from your smartphone or tablet. Or stream from your laptop or PDA.

Surprising sound quality

The Model XS uses Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) Bluetooth technology to ensure a high-quality wireless signal from your device. And all that detail won't be lost in playback. The system features two 1" tweeters for precise mids and highs, and a 2-1/4" woofer for surprisingly robust lows. Each speaker is powered by its own amp, and separately chambered to ensure clear, accurate sound without cross-interference. You'll enjoy expansive, detailed sound that belies the Model XS's small size.

Convenient clock radio

The Model XS features a built-in FM tuner with six presets. While the Bluetooth receiver uses a digital amplifier, the tuner has a separate analog amplifier to ensure optimal radio reception. Also included is a digital clock with a programmable alarm.

Elegantly simple controls and displays

A line of touch-sensitive buttons along the top of the system gives you easy control. These buttons are backlit for visibility in low-light settings.

Over all a nice product. i was very much impressed with the qualtiy it imbued as well as dazzled with the classic felling it gives you. Its very portable and versatile as well as sleek and easy on the eyes. A light weight, subtley small instrument that is capable of producing amazingly vivid and powerful sounds it is well worth my money. the added in functions really impressed me as well as many companies will throw in low quality add ons to add small incentives which Geneva did not do. A very well rounded portable speaker.
Pros:
touch control, red led, bluetooth and almost a million other things.
Cons:
fairly fragile
