    Comments about Gemini AS-08BLU 8 in. Powered Bluetooth Speaker:

    This purchase was for a senior center and the hope is to use it for parties and so forth. We are very happy with it so far and have ordered a stand to try and keep it from harm.

      Comments about Gemini AS-08BLU 8 in. Powered Bluetooth Speaker:

      I play in an acoustic duo, do basic guitar repairs and pickup installs for my friends, and wanted an inexpensive guitar amp for my repair bench. For 3 times as much, you could buy a Fishman Loudbox Mini that is twice the weight, one forth the power, smaller woofer, etc. With my acoustic guitar plugged direct this speaker sounds as good as my gigging PA with my floor pedal and mixer in the signal chain. There is plenty of power for a restaurant gig at reasonable volume.

      The icing is this speaker will play MP3s off an SD card or USB drive, connect to your phone via Bluetooth, or even tune-in the local FM radio station. I've got it set to play MP3s automatically when I turn on my bench lights. However, the media player and Bluetooth interface are not the easiest to operate. There is only a one-line display on the back, some features only accessible from the remote that needs to be pointed to the front of the speaker, a hidden volume control built into the media player, hidden EQ modes (most of which sound BAD), and some features only accessible from the rear panel (such as MP3 shuffle/folder/repeat modes). So, before you despair at the tone of the media player or the lack of volume, or getting it to shuffle your MP3s, you need to play with that remote which is a bit frustrating since you have no visual feedback standing in front of the speaker AND the rear panel controls. The manual is poorly written, and it was easier to explore the various buttons. To my ear only one of the (10?) EQ modes sounds good and of course you select right past it to a terrible tinny one as you do the blind search the first few times using the remote. Bottom line, wonderful useful features, but the default media player and Bluetooth interface default EQ and volume levels were shockingly bad and that was the first thing I tried before using the regular inputs with my guitar and mic.
