Its design is unique but it still looks great

The Spaced360 is a fantastic addition to the Bluetooth market, offering everything you need in a speaker system that can act both as a main music system or one you take with you room to room.

Its design takes a little getting used to but once you are convinced that no matter where you put the speaker the sound doesn't vary then it will grow on you fast.

We liked

Unless you have a real aversion to speakers looking a little like a bike saddle, the design of the Spaced360 is fun but unfussy. Its speaker positions means that wherever you are in the room, sound is fantastic and you will be hard pressed to find a track that sounds muddled or muddied through the device.

It's also a cinch to connect your device to the Spaced360 thanks to NFC and Bluetooth functionality, just make sure you adhere to the fast flash (up for pairing), slow flash (ready to connect) and solid light (connected) rules.

We disliked

The Spaced 360 is a touch on the heavy side and its unique design means that this definitely isn't a throw-in-a-bag device.

It is also a little confusing when the speaker goes to sleep after a period of non use. While this is great as it conserves energy, it takes a bit of getting used to having to fumble with the main button to turn it on again.

Final verdict

If you can forgive the steep-ish price, the Spaced360 is great speaker that's been designed by audio enthusiasts for audio enthusiasts.

I couldn't find anything wrong with its sound, even when a variety of tracks were played - it's a system that is well balanced so will suit those looking to make this a party machine or a decent second speaker in the home.
