In absolute terms, the loudspeaker has a fair sounding bass, and stays well clear of the exaggerated boom-tizz sound of some of its similarly priced rivals. It has a good midrange, too, with some useful vocal expression and refinement, and the treble stays on the right side of ‘harsh’, all of which combine to make a portable speaker that sounds more like a traditional audiophile-friendly design. Stereo is less strong from a single box, but the remarkable thing about the Arena is you only notice this when moving to stereo ‘proper’. Listening to it in its own right, there is a sense of a sound outside of the boxes, with good stereo separation and even some stereo depth and width, which is amazing given it’s all coming out of one little box!”
