Let the Onkyo VC-GX30 speaker be the hub of your home entertainment – with Google Assistant on hand to serve all your requests.

Google Assistant built-in

With Google Assistant built-in, the Onkyo VC-GX30 is one of the smartest speakers around. Just talk to the speaker to stream music, find answers on Google Search (the world’s most popular search engine), manage everyday tasks and control other smart devices. Just say ‘OK Google’ and let the fun begin.

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Home automation
Compatible with other smart appliances, the VC-GX30 is the hub of your home automation. Control products such as Philips Hue lighting and SmartThings, simply by speaking to the Onkyo.

One app controls it all
Download the Google Home app and you’ve got effortless control of your home entertainment. Integrate all your favourite streaming music services for voice activation. You can also cast audio from supported mobile devices, laptops and PCs.

Onkyo sound quality
Tuned for crystal-clear clarity, the VC-GX30 uses a non-resonant, wooden cabinet rather than an inferior-sounding plastic one. Custom two-way speakers offer a genuine taste of Hi-Fi with excellent resolution from bass to the highest treble notes. One listen and you’ll soon appreciate Onkyo’s 70 years of audio heritage.

Stylish good looks
Compact enough to place almost anywhere but stylish enough to stand out, the VC-GX30 is an eye-catcher. Rounded edges and a perforated grille reduce the speaker’s visual bulk for a neat-looking speaker. Simply choose between black or white – whichever suits your home best.

With access to a whole host of functions, the Onkyo VG-GX30 is at your command.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound and Google Feautures Was a little fiddly to setup but solid after that. The sound is good, it's well built and the "Hey Google" feature works very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing sound quality While I like the Google home aspect of this speaker, the sound quality for music is very disappointing. The speaker looks good and Google's voice is good. If listening to music isn't your main reason to buy this product, go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound from such a small speaker! I bought this speaker at the end of December and have been using it over the last 10 days. It has been great - offering a very simple way of accessing Spotify content. The sound quality from such a small speaker is fantastic and it has enough power to fill a decent sized room. My children have even been able to get Google to play their favourite music which is a big improvement on the Amazon Alexa smart speaker the Onkyo has replaced. I would definitely recommend the Onkyo VC-GX30 to friends and family and am considering buying a second one already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A better smart *speaker* than a Google Home I bought this speaker to upgrade a google home mini in the living room, particularly as people were staying over new years. I must say that at £50 there is nothing to complain about and even at full price it is a very competitive smart speaker. The nearest competitor in my eyes, the Google Home is usually more expensive while providing a less satisfying sound. I agree with other reviews that the speaker can be a bit boomy at lower volumes but nothing that impacts the quality significantly, at least to me. As seems to be the way with 3rd party implementations of smart assistants, the wakeword detection is a tad poorer, especially when playing music. Overall a very highly reccomended product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappinting sound I purchased this product a week ago. It is very easy to use. Just download the Google Home app to your phone, pair the Bluetooth and you are are set to go. The speaker sound has too much bass particularly at low volume which can means the sound seems muffled.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Brilliant purchase, especially for £49. I'd been thinking of a Google hub as I thought my 4 year old would love asking it questions. I saw this on sale and immediately knew it was what I should get. The sound quality when it streams Spotify, or internet radio is great. Its fun asking Google questions, and my son likes it telling him jokes, and making animal noises for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speakers Bought two of them as add-ons to my Google network. I found them easy to setup, as I already had the home app setup they used the information in my phone to contact to my network. Found them to be very responsive to voice commands and plenty of volume for the kitchen and bedroom. As other reviews have saud they are a little heavy on the base at very low volume but at normal listening level found them to be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound It a good bit of kit bought two I have one in the lounge and one in the bedroom and I've linked them together so I can listen to music as I do jobs around the house

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great, nice solid feel Had this for a few weeks, for the money we paid this is a lovely little device. Nice solid wooden enclosure which adds to the sound. No real customisation on the equalizer so has to be done in whatever app you are using. Can be used with the built in chromecast or the google assistant (which I dont really use) If like me you dont want google listening then you can turn the mic off with a button on the top which is reassuring unlike the google hubs etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good sound but not many connection Before burn in, the bass was very muddy. After a week of burn in sounds a lot better. Definitely better than google home or amazon alexa. Voice command or app is the only way to connect to the speaker no other option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tidy, punchy little box Really nice sound which goes plenty loud enough for the kitchen. Google Home works well and is quick to set up. Can't get it to appear on my Onkyo app though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for a great price Being a typical bloke, my wife was struggling to buy me something for Christmas. I stumbled across this speaker being sold at a very good price and decided this is what I would like. I'm not really into the whole voice interactive speaker, just one that provides good sound. I was considering the options Sonos and Bose have, but for the price this looked like a good alternative. I wouldn't say that I am a sophisticated music lover that can tell the difference between vinyl and CD but the test run of this little beauty was enough to give this 40 something something to look forward to unwrapping on Christmas day and beats socks hands down! Connecting to my phone via bluetooth was a little more complicated than I would like but I got there in the end. The product has a real high end feel to it, the wood construction really helps it not sound tinny as well as having rubber feet for it to sit on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty disappointing. All bass and no highs. I thought buying onkyo would mean that I'd get a higher quality of sound. Sadly not. Very muffled. Very bassy. No highs. No sparkle
Date published: 2018-12-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent bit of kit. Had the speaker for about three weeks and like it a lot. The sound quality is good for a small mono speaker, plenty of bass and midrange as described. Google Assistant is equally as good as Alexa. Can sometimes be unresponsive to the wake word which needs to be repeated. All in all though, very happy with it.
Date published: 2018-12-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent set of functions for the price I have been using the device for 2 weeks now. It was easy to set up with Google Home. Google assistant function works great and can easily create speaker groups to play music through multiple chromecast enabled devices. Richer sounds did a price match for this product, making it a no brainer too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Excellent product. Setup straight forward. Sound excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, great value for money Bought this when discounted to £50 and have been very pleased with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good sound from a compact device. Very easy set-up and does everything it claims to do. I was surprised just how versatile it is in voice recognition. The sound is really good from a compact device such as this. I have still to explore further uses for it, such as controlling the lights so it seems that there are further pleasant surprises in store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For £50 you can't argue Bought one of these for my new home office. Really impressed bearing in mind the price and size. There does seem to be a little too much bass to my ear but this is comparing it to my Onkyo A-9010 with a set of Mission LX-2s which is an unfair comparison.
