The MP230 is one of the most striking Bluetooth speakers around. Inspired by radios from the 50s and 60s, it pairs a wooden enclosure with copper-coloured grills on the front and back, complemented nicely by a row of shiny buttons beneath the front grill. These buttons provide a decent level of feedback when pressed and cover all your key commands, including playing/pausing audio, skipping tracks and adjusting volume.
Beneath its eye-catching retro exterior, the MP230 packs in a thoroughly modern speaker arrangement consisting of two 48mm full-range drivers, each of which is powered by 10W of amplification. These are coupled with a dual passive radiator and the resulting audio is spacious, detailed and possesses plenty of low-end weight.
