Our take on the AudioXperts EVA SPS300

by Ralph Graves
AudioXperts

Easy on the environment...

The eco-friendly AudioXperts SPS300 looks different than most other Bluetooth speaker systems and it is — it's made with more than 60% sustainable materials. The internal cabinet parts are made from sturdy plant starch bioplastic. The cabinet's covering is natural woven wool, accented with bamboo. And the remote is encased in bamboo instead of plastic.

...and easy on your ears

The SPS300 features a single 4" full-range speaker driven by a powerful 15-watt amplifier. You'll enjoy clear mono sound with plenty of detail. Prefer stereo? An expansion port lets you connect a PS200 accessory speaker for two-channel sound.

Bluetooth and more

The system features aptX® audio coding, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that retains virtually all the detail of the audio signal it carries. And the SPS300 is also backwards-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth. So you can play your music wirelessly from almost any portable device and still enjoy great sound.

Apple® connectivity

You can connect your iPhone®, iPod®, or iPad® directly to the SPS300 through its USB port for music playback and automatic charging. You can also connect an Apple AirPort Express® Wi-Fi® base station to the SPS300 through its optical digital input, then stream music wirelessly from your Apple portable or from your iTunes® library on your computer, using Apple AirPlay®.
