Acrylic B50 review
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the Acrylic B50 amplifier. It comes in a compact, black aluminum casing and delivers a power of 2*50 watts. It boasts a extensive range of analog and digital inputs, including HDMI ARC and a built-in phono stage. At the time of this review, it is priced at $139, making it a great value for a versatile home audio solution.
For wireless enthusiasts, the Acrylic B50 offers Bluetooth connectivity for up to two devices simultaneously, both in receiver and transmitter modes. Utilizing the modern Qualcomm QCC3040 chip, Bluetooth audio transmission is in Hi-Res format, including AptX HD, ensuring high-quality sound even with premium wireless headphones. During testing, it performed excellently with Sony WH1000XM3 and Focal Bathys headphones, delivering superb sound and a reliable connection. Pairing with the app is quick and convenient.
In the package, you'll find the Acrylic B50 amplifier, a compact remote control with a wide range of equalizer settings, the power adapter, and a detailed user manual. Moreover, you can also control the amplifier using the Go Control app on your phone.
In terms of sound, the Acrylic B50 offers confident performance at the entry-level Hi-Fi range. During testing with Magnat Signature 703 speakers, I observed the following sound characteristics: clear and precise sound with powerful, pleasing bass and crisp highs. The vocal range seems slightly emphasized (эмпфесаизд), which can sound too bright at times. However, this can easily be adjusted by tuning the mid-frequencies using the app settings. The amplifier creates a wide soundstage, providing a sense of spaciousness and detachment from the speakers. Overall, it is suitable for most music genres, and I am particularly impressed with its unique ability to receive HDMI audio and transmit it to two pairs of wireless headphones simultaneously. Considering its price of $139 at the time of this review, it is an excellent choice for an entry-level Hi-Fi system.
The Acrylic B50 also excels in movie viewing. Testing it with various Netflix films of different genres, I must admit that the sound and special effects evoked a strong emotional response. It provided an immersive experience, especially considering its price range.
At the PremiumHIFI studio, the Acrylic B50 was delivered within three days of placing the order, which is remarkably fast. If you're looking for quality sound without breaking the bank, I highly recommend ordering the Acrylic B50 using the link in the description. Until next time!
