First impressions

At first glance the HI-FI Cube has a compact appearance, it may be poor sight and lacking in features, but gradually we discover that it is not. The front design consists of: aluminum and methacrylate, combining the silver and black colors.

The speaker box is wooden, with silvery white front-felt. All together has been reduced in size and compact appearance.

Analysis

The device has a button (Function) to change the different modes that are offered (Radio – Aux – Disc).

The radio features FM and AM mode sequential search or with 20 presets that can save ourselves.

With the “Assistant” mode we can use our HI-FI Cube as an amplifier for other devices. The connection is made through the rear panel using RCA connectors.

Upon entering “Disc” mode, the reader seeks the means we have inserted to see if you recognize the format. We can use data DVDs or video CDs or audio data, and can play DVD Video, Audio CD, MP3, DivX, VCD, SVCD, Jpeg.
Noting the front we see that has two large wheels considerably, these serve respectively to change the radio chain and to increase or decrease the volume.

There is a front output for headphones and microphone input (Very useful to use DVD’s Karaoke).

The lighting is good, blue, with enough light we see clearly illuminated the two main wheels and the button “Standby”. This lighting gives a striking feature in dim light or total darkness. It misses an option to turn off the light, because it is too intense and seeing a movie can be distracted by location.

At the back we can see a good number of inputs / outputs for connecting different devices, including strikes us an optical output “spdif” to which we can connect a 5.1 sound system. We also available different video outputs: Component Video, RCA, SuperVideo and Scart (Scart) Video.
The remote control Woxter HI-FI Cube is very functional, we can execute all options, both general as DVD menus without having to approach the amplifier. Turning off the light we can see that the buttons acquire a green phosphorescent tone making it easy location in complete darkness.

The display shows all the information we need in any of the ways we are. When the chain is in “standby” mode it shows the time. One of the few drawbacks of this equipment is that the display is too simple when compared to the rest of the design and other current devices.

The speakers are small but give a good sound quality and good power. We will serve you well to fill a medium quality sound room. For a larger room if we raise the volume too distorted sound. We can buy more powerful speakers if they fall short, but the truth is that not disappointed in any way, indeed, do their job very well giving great value / power.
