House of Marley Bag of Rhythm – a bag full of sound

House of Marley Bag of Rhythm

It has been a while since we first heard about the iPod speaker docks from House of Marley, including the House of Marley Bag of Rhythm, but finally it is available for purchase in the UK as the first of the HoM speaker docks.

The Bag of Rhythm is the HoM entry into the boombox iPod speaker market, that is seeing a revival at the moment with the popularity of street dance and performance. Although knowing the Jamaican origin of the product, it would go perfectly with a trip to the beach, an ice bucket and a few beers.

The HoM Bag of Rhythm can run on power connection or you can use 6 D batteries to make it portable (no word on battery playtime yet). Shame it does not come with a rechargeable battery though. The carrying bag, which is said to be available in more than one color, is made from cotton, and the wooden surface of the speaker dock itself is made from FSC-certified wood. Dual 4-inch speakers, a 1-inch tweeter, 32W power output, and DSP Sound Processing ensures you get that boombox sound.

I am yet to have the chance to test this speaker dock at home, but have listened to it a few times in retail and demo setting, and first impression is that it delivers a good amount of punch as you want from a boombox style system, but without making the system all about the ‘boom’ and not enough about the quality sound. I hope to be back with a full review in the near future.

Hopefully House of Marley will be releasing their other iPod speaker docks by then as well, including the One Foundation Airplay speaker, which i’m personally looking forward to testing out.
