I had been trawling the net to see which speakers were best suited for my new Mac Mini. B&W MM1 seemed to be the one to get but thought it too costly. Focal XS book not available in my place (Abu Dhabi). Bose - I already burnt my fingers with one and it is in our vacation home for once a year power up. Then the usual stuff of Logitec and the like as computer speakers were the only choice left for me here.
Was not interested in monitor styled ones. Landed on NOVA. Went to the nearby HK showroom. Cute they looked. Looks much different than the rest.
Played some songs Indian and Western from my phone through BT. Instant pairing and rich sound for the size.
It has optical input too that attracted me. But the salesman could not help me with a 3.5mm adaptor to use with my Mac Mini. Left the shop without buying as BT was not my choice with lossless files on my Mac and did not want to use it with analogue input as it was not going to change much from the setup i had. Virgin Megastore in the same mall carried the optical cable with mini plug adaptor. Lost no time, got a cable and went back to HK showroom and picked up a black Nova.
Setting up was easy though plugging in the speaker cable was a bit difficult with poor eyesight. Once done it was filling our 25sq.m living with rich sound again through BT. Took it and hooked up Mac Mini through optical cable. Wow, the same songs I heard before on my old analog stereo and analog out of Mac Mini to a Sangean WR3 became more lively in our bedroom. Bass is deep enough though not window rattling. highs are clear. vocals are open. With about 5 feet between speakers got some separation too to have wider sound stage than the one box solutions.
In all a satisfying speaker for my Mac Mini. I miss the remote control for volume and mute as Mac 'mutes' these controls when using optical. controls are on speaker and you need to reach to it to select input or power up/off or volume and that makes it 4.5 stars but I cannot give that rating. so a 5 star
