Aq Amigo Laptop Speaker: the Macbook Air of Speakers

by Lambert Varias

The AQ Amigo is made of plastic, but it’s so thin it seems more fragile than a pair of ceramic speakers. At 0.98 inches thick, it’s just a bit fatter than a typical laptop screen.

The speaker is equipped with two 1.2-watt 19 mm “Exciter” drivers. AQORD Ltd. says that “the Exciter itself turns electrical audio signal into vibrations through the use of magnetism. Unlike a traditional speaker, which has a speaker cone, it can be fixed to any solid surface to make the surface vibrate, in turn producing the sound.”

Even with its promises of “lush, deep bass” we can’t expect a speaker this small to be mind-blowingly good, but you have to admit that it’s other features – small size, built-in clip, USB-powered – makes it worth considering if you’re looking for a portable speaker.

You can order the AQ Amigo at aqudos for £20 (appx. $32 USD).

      Really? That’s odd – it’s just a speaker.

        but it isn’t “just a speaker”, it’s a USB audio device – it takes digital audio straight over the USB cable, along with it’s power. That means that there are some operating systems it won’t work with, (think Windows 95, which didn’t support USB). Windows 7 isn’t one of them, though, You just have to disable the “sound enhancements” that Windows 7 sneaks in by default when you install a new audio device.

        Also, this thing is seriously rugged, at least compared to everything else in my laptop bag. OK, it’s mostly plastic, but it feels high quality. An impact that would render the laptop unusable wouldn’t leave a scratch on this thing. Great for everyday meetings to save setting up a proper set of speakers.
