Sony MHC-V81D

A per­fect house party com­pan­ion

T3 India - - Tested -

Sony’s MHC-V81D may look like an­other tower speaker from a dis­tance but it is cer­tainly more than it meets the eye. The MHC-V81D is not that tall and now stands at a man­age­able around 4-feet with the caster at the bot­tom that makes it seam­less to move it around. One rea­son the speaker is not tall is that all the but­tons are placed on the top that al­lows con­trol­ling the speaker and en­able/dis­able var­i­ous other func­tions. The panel is dust and splash proof.

Once turned on, the speaker re­veals its party na­ture. The MHC-V81D plays con­tent from a va­ri­ety of sources. It comes with Blue­tooth that al­lows stream­ing via mo­bile de­vices, a CD player, USB port and even FM Ra­dio. It fea­tures an­gled speak­ers on the front to di­rect sound over a wider area along with tweet­ers at the back for a 360-de­gree sound. And while it achieves om­ni­di­rec­tional au­dio, the au­dio qual­ity is just what you ex­pect from party speak­ers -- loud with a de­cent amount of bass.

Adding to its party cred is the in­clu­sion of 360-de­gree party lights to cre­ate a per­fect party am­bi­ence and host other fea­tures like Karaoke sup­port, Taiko mode that helps to play var­i­ous mu­si­cal in­stru­ments by tap­ping on the con­trol panel and a Be the DJ mode with ges­ture con­trols.

MHC-V81D is not an ideal sweet sound­ing speaker but a de­cent at­tempt to make it a one-stop de­vice for house par­ties with mu­sic to lights and other party modes.
