Bomaker Tapio V review: ECONOMIC but QUALITY soundbar

It has been over a year since we tried the model Tapio III, but the story hasn't changed; the Bomaker company is once again betting everything on its own know-how in the creation of an economical product but, at the same time, capable of offering a quality equal to more expensive products.

This new soundbar looks a lot like the models already launched previously, but with strong improvements on the technical side. Let's find out in detail.

Bomaker Tapio V Review

Content of the package

La sales package of this soundbar is relatively small, although the soundbar itself is not that small, but I'll tell you why later. Inside the box we find:

  • Bomaker Tapio V soundbar;
  • Subwoofer;
  • Remote control (no batteries);
  • various power supply and connection cables;
  • Wall mounting kit;
  • manuals

Design and Materials

The reason for a the packaging so small is soon revealed: the soundbar is "broken in half", and possibly it can also be used in a single module instead of a double to reduce the overall dimensions. Its dimensions are equal to 81 9.3 x x 7cm in case of use in full or, exactly half in width in case of use of only one module, but I do not recommend it.

The soundbar is made entirely of shiny plastic, and this is not the best for the dust that is captured very easily, but it is a negligible detail; the subwoofer, on the other hand, is rmade of wood and has dimensions of 12 x 22 x 39.7 cm. In front the small woofer is protected by the classic "retina" present on most of the subwoofers on the market, while on the upper part it is equipped with the classic hole bass reflex whose dimensions are quite small.

Right out of the box this product it does not require large configurations: just join the two parts of the soundbar and connect them using a special cable supplied in the package, after which, depending on the source you will use for the audio, choose the most suitable type of connection, whether wired or wireless.

In addition, the sales package includes a special wall mounting kit for the soundbar: behind the latter there are two supports suitable for fixing, they are made of plastic but still very resistant for a solid fixing.

In addition, on the front there is a small display that shows the source in use or indicates the power on status of the soundbar: it stays on even when the soundbar it is actually off, but fortunately, using the remote control, there is the possibility to deactivate the display.

Connectivity

The connectivity sector is one of the strengths of the Bomaker Tapio V. The extreme versatility of use of this soundbar is facilitated by all these available sources: you can connect the audio source via the optical cable, via AUX but also via bluetooth or, alternatively, you can use a USB key as an audio source.

Unfortunately, the entrance is missing HDMI Arc as already seen on the previous models made by the company; however the presence of the optical input opens up various possibilities of use, even if perhaps with the ARC standard, a little more obsolete, we could have used the soundbar on slightly older devices.

Furthermore, on the back there is the entrance dedicated to subwoofer via single RCA cable. In addition, since it is a pre-amplified system, it is not necessary to use an external amplifier and this significantly reduces the costs to be incurred in order to use it.

Audio quality and user experience

I tried Bomaker's soundbar on different devices to get a more complete overview of the product in my hands, and in fact I could not have made a better choice. Using the soundbar connected to the TV unfortunately, you have to settle for the standard equalization or, at the limit, use the four predefined presets on the remote control which, to be honest, do not allow you to fully enjoy the potential of this Tapio V from Bomaker.

Consider one thing: inside the soudbar they are present 4 speakers of 5W RMS each, and deal with the reproduction of high and medium frequencies (they are two Tweeter and two Midrange) while the reproduction of low frequencies is entrusted to the subwoofer that offers a power di about 20W RMS.

The positive side is that this soundbar, if you are not an audiophile, is extremely easy to set up: once turned on, depending on the usage scenario (whether movies, music, TV programs) you just need to select the mode on the remote control and enjoy quality medium, without too many turns and various configurations.

If, on the other hand, you are more demanding and you want to really get the most out of this soudbar, you have to make sure to take advantage of the equalization in your favor and, this opportunity is often reserved only for PCs or for some bad smartphones. I have deepened this test to try to understand the real potential of the Bomaker Tapio V and radically the result changes: we are faced with clear and "cutting" high frequencies so to speak, and balanced mid frequencies.

Il sound of the soundbar without PC equalization is not the best, as it is evident that there is something to adjust (but this is also very subjective, to tell the truth); the bass, on the other hand, remain mediocre albeit well equalized, also because here the company has used a small woofer, only 10cm, and therefore more than it already does, it is impossible.

Price and Considerations

Ultimately you will wonder how much this Bomaker soundbar really costs and if, indeed, the game is worth the candle. The answer is yes, 100%. The reason is in the price: thanks to the discount reserved for us, the soundbar costs less than € 70 and is the ideal solution for those who want to improve the somewhat poor sound of cheap TVs or create a little surround for PC and consoles.

Sure, I would have liked a little more bass personally but given the price and size of the whole kit, we couldn't really have gotten more.
