Vinnfier Champ 202 BTRM
Vinnfier Champ 202 BTRM
Last month, we had a look at Vinnfier's Champ 303 BTRM, a 2.1-channel speaker system with Bluetooth connectivity, FM radio, microphone inputs, USB and SD card support, as well as a remote control. This time around, we take a look at the Champ 202 BTRM, a slightly smaller and sleeker iteration.
One thing that can be said about the smaller and sleeker design is that it is more pleasant to the eyes. Also, you have more options when it comes to the placement of the Champ 202 BTRM, due to its slimmer profile.
Of course, a downsize will obviously be followed by a dip in total output, so the Champ 202 BTRM has a total RMS output of 60W. That said, you shouldn't need to worry about the volume level, as it is still quite capable of deafening you should you allow it to. As before, the woofer port is to the left side, while the controls and the LCD screen are up in front. The SD card slot and USB port are below them, along with the two microphone ports and controls.
The back is where you plug in the satellites' RCA outputs, along with the RCA-to-3.5mm input. The FM radio antenna is detachable this time, which is plugged in via a separate RCA cable. As with the bigger Champ 303 BTRM, you also get Bluetooth connectivity, and the remote control that lets you switch input modes between the available options, adjust volumes, mute your tracks and change equalizer settings between the presets and the custom bass and treble settings.
As always, we connected the Champ 202 BTRM to a PC and played a number of different tracks from various genres. The bass is good, but the mids and highs are a little lacking. Sometimes you have the highs overpowering the details from the mids, or the midrange drowning the highs. This gets amplified if you only pump up the treble, but fortunately, diligent switching of the preset equalizer profiles alleviates this problem. There are five EQ profiles to choose from – pop, rock, jazz, classical and the default flat – so there is plenty to cycle through to find the one perfect for your current track.
The Vinnfier Champ 202 BTRM is arguably better looking than its bulkier brother, but otherwise, there is little difference between them. Again, Bluetooth connectivity and the remote control are your best friends when utilizing this set of speakers.
