Pure, stereo sound - for your desktop
Although neat and compact enough for your desktop, the Tibo Plus 2.1 are true Hi-Fi stereo speakers. With soft dome tweeters, you get a smooth yet detailed treble response. Matching this are long-throw woofers for a natural sound and excellent dynamics for this size of speaker. If you require more bass, there's a subwoofer output for the connection of your choice of active sub.

With built-in amplification, there's no need for a separate amplifier. Featuring a built-in, 2 x 35W Class-D digital amplifier, these speakers easily capable of delivering a powerful performance. Simply plug the master speaker into the mains and connect the other speaker via conventional speaker cable.
Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless, CD quality sound
With the Tibo Plus 2.1 you can listen to music from just about any source - even via wireless Bluetooth. Simply pair the speakers with your Bluetooth enabled device and stream your music library, internet radio, or streaming services like Spotify, Tidal and Deezer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by soundcutsout from Cuts out when music is quiet I have the same problems as the other reviewers. The speakers are useless, because whenever the music is quiet, the speakers cut out altogether. Then when the music becomes louder, the speakers suddenly come on again. This is even when the volume of my device is at the maximum. The voice that announces the input mode is incredibly loud, and can't be deactivated. The speakers turn themselves off before I've chosen another track, so I hear the voice several times a day. The remote is pointless because it only works when pointed directly at the device from within a couple of meters. I was given these Tibo 2.1 speakers as a generous wedding present. Sadly I'll have to replace them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tw09 from Good sound, but a few annoyances I'm using these as desktop speakers driven by a PC. I'm happy enough with the sound quality generally, but there are a few annoyances with them: 1) As a previous reviewer mentioned, the loud voice that tells you the current operational mode when you turn them on is quite annoying, and also they don't remember the volume level they were set to previously. 2) When they're being fed with a fairly quiet signal, there's some sort of automatic muting that kicks in, and makes a slight pop followed by a hiss or faint warbling tone. This is very noticeable on spoken material (E.g. Radio 4) as it happens each time there's a pause in the speech. I returned one set as faulty because of this, they were replaced without question, but the new set are the same. I now think I can work around this issue by maxing the audio output in my streaming app and Windows to 100% (to try to stop the muting from occurring), and using the volume control on the speakers to reduce it to an acceptable level. The problem with that is that they default to quite a high level when you turn them on, so I always have to turn them down manually.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tinnies from Great sound, annoying features These are great little speakers for my home office with regard to sound. Unfortunately, they come with some extremely annoying features. They go into standby mode after being idle for what seems like only 5 minutes or so. It often takes me more than 5 minutes to decide what to play next! What is even more annoying than this is that each time the speakers are reactivated via (the cheap and nasty) remote I am informed in a rather loud and unpleasant computer voice that I am in 'AV mode', 'bluetooth mode' or whatever. This is extremely intrusive and I'll often play sound through the very poor speakers in my computer monitor rather than go to the bother of finding the remote and being told in an obnoxious voice what mode the speakers are in. If only manufacturers would concentrate as much on usability as they do on sound quality. I'll probably use these for a few months whilst I research more user friendly alternatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IanD41 from Hi-Fi sound from PC speakers. Given the rise of streaming services like Spotify and wanting to make the most of my digital music collection stored on my laptop I was looking for some high quality speakers that would replace my old Logitechs and also have Bluetooth for connecting to my phone. I looked at these and the Steljes models but decided on these having had a demo in store of the smaller 1.1 model. Unfortunately the store didn't have these in stock so it meant having to come back a week later (and even then there was some confusion and difficulty finding where a staff member had put them - after I rang on the Friday to reserve a set). Luckily they were found and when I got them home and wired them up to my laptop I was very pleased with the warm, full and bassy sound that came from such small (but reassuringly heavy) cabinets. The only negatives so far were the lack of a printed manual (meaning I had to go on line to work out how to get the Bluetooth feature working) and a far too short mains lead (I had to use another extension lead). Aside from that I'm really enjoying listening to them and with 35w per channel they easily fill my small room with a sound comparable to my main system.
