    The Sony GTK-XB72 High Power Home Audio System delivers high quality audio that will fill any room in your home. It's very simple to setup, and has a variety of options, including bluetooth making it extremely easy to pair with a mobile device and enjoy your favorite playlists. The speakers produce crisp tones from lower frequencies through the high frequency ranges. I use the Sony GTK-XB72 to stream the audio from my mobile device while watching movies and even playing games and it enhances the audio experience tremendously. I would highly recommend the Sony GTK-XB72 High Power Home Audio System with Bluetooth Technology. You will definitely enjoy the immersive sound that is produced by this speaker system.

    Setup was a breeze, instructions were good and the app loaded and worked great oin my Pixel. Large but portable with great sound and usability. I combine this XB72 with my XB22 and XB31 as a sound system for my home theatre using the wireless party chain mode and it's very nice and convenient to store away again after - although the XB72 id rather large itself.

    I was very impressed with the complete sound and overall great quality of this speaker system. It is ideal for parties or groups but you can use it at home if you want to use it for the sound and happy that it also does speaker capabilities for your voice calls and your cell phone. This is the premier bluetooth speaker experience.

    Sony GTK-XB72

    This is one of the best audio systems I have ever used in my home. The sound is rich and can get quite loud when desired. The ability to connect multiple Sony BlueTooth speakers to spread out the sound works amazingly well. The FM tuner is digital, so finding the right station was simple. My wife was a little annoyed that the lights wouldn't turn off when she hit the power button, but there's a labeled button that you can long-press to turn them off. The lighting controls are easy to manipulate from the app.

    Great sound and easy to use with the exception of selecting a station on the radio. The only way to know what station you are choosing is to push scan and wait till the station comes in. The station ID is audible only. No way to view the station your tunes too.

    If you like to host backyard gatherings, tailgating or picnicking... you have to check this speaker out! I was impressed with the sound and bass this Sony speaker offered. The AM/FM radio and microphone connectivity is a nice touch, however I really wanted this to be a battery operated speaker as well. It's really not for constant movement, but rather a mobile stationary speaker. Not saying this is a heavy speaker 'cause it's not, it's probably the best sounding speaker in it's field, hands down. You can download the app to change the lighting effects and also "DJ" sounds are available. It's definitely made for parties, but I use it for backyard gatherings. Daisy chaining is a great option, but this can handle great by itself. I would recommend purchasing this when it's on sale. It does have a hefty price tag for a non battery operating speaker. Thanks.

    Great Outdoor Party Speaker

    Setup of initial bluetooth is straighforward and easy. The sound quality is very good especially with the extra bass functionality. This speaker is extrememly loud, with this one speaker you can throw an outdoor party with no problem. The issues I have is with the music center app, I don't like that I have to go through this app to play music via my streaming services. The FM tuner and the other inputs are nice touches which gives speaker a lot more flexibility. Also the party chain feature is cool and works well with my other sony bluetooth speakers.

    When there's a party this is the speaker to have, one sounds impressive and with party chain multiple ones would rock! The "extra bass" designation definitely fits with this one, because you can definitely feel the bass. It won't knock pictures off the wall, but if you live in an apartment your neighbors will probably complain! I haven't heard another Bluetooth speaker at this price with this kinda bass. This speaker has no problem with rap, R&B or other bass heavy music. It's big and it's a little heavy but the handle makes moving it easy. I love the fact that it has a radio tuner, something that makes this more of a whole home audio system that's easy to move. You access the fm radio thru the Sony app, which you use also to control the lights and other functions. The lights have 12 different settings or can be turned off completely. The speaker feels well built and solid. With the app you can turn the speaker off, but you can't turn it on, this would be my one knock. Portable Bluetooth speaker...or home audio system, this one definitely blurs the line. As long as I had a power source I'd have no problem taking this one with me. Very good sound, nice bass and cool lights, this is my speaker for summer cookouts and party's on the deck!

    Great sound, rich bass

    This speaker has a great sound, the bass is rich and beautiful. It's loud enough for my home to reach all rooms and even to listen to outside on the deck or carport. It would work nicely outside also as long as it's protected since it's not waterproof. It came in sturdy packaging protecting the speaker well. Setup was very easy, Just find a place it will fit and plug it in. Connecting to Bluetooth took no time at all and the NFC makes it even easier by placing the phone on the appropriate spot. Large buttons make it easy to see what you're looking for. Scanning the code for the app made that process easy and quick. In the app you can choose your music source, start it up and the speaker takes over with beautiful sound. There are many light effect options, from strobe to rave to calm so any time of the day there is a good option. The FM radio is a nice addition to have on a speaker also. Karaoke is great fun. The DJ effect is something I don't see myself using beyond trying it out for fun for a few minutes. I really like this speaker, I like the look, the sound, and being able to control it with my phone, I took one star away because when connected to my phone listening to music and I get a call, the call comes over the speaker which is not something you want when having a party or company over. So a phone call means the music stops until someone else connects and worries about their phone call coming in over the speaker. Awkward. I don't have a compatible speaker to try the live sound yet, but hopefully soon.

    Setup is quick and easy for GTK-XB72 Wireless Speaker with EXTRA Bass Sound from SONY. It is latest addition to SONY's EXTRA BASS range of speakers. GTX-XB72 is bigger and more powerful speaker. I was able to connect my iPhone using Bluetooth. I was amazed with sound quality from this speaker and it is very clear and filled the entire room. This speaker can be used horizontal as well as vertical mode. The built-in sensor optimizes the sound. LIVE SOUND button is superb feature and it cleverly angled speakers and DSP technology send your music to a wider area. It brings the party to life with a unique three-dimensional sound experience, creating festival vibes. The GTK-XB72 has built-in multi-colored LED line lights on the front, sides and top, pulsing speaker lights within the main body, and a flashing strobe light for added impact. The perfect way to create a club-like atmosphere. I have downloaded the SONY Music center app from app store. There are lot of nice features to adjust audio settings, select your favorite playlists from your phone or a USB, and cue the next song without being tied to the sound system. Anther awesome feature is Fiestable app puts you in charge of the light colors and lets you activate DJ and karaoke modes using your smartphone. After installing the app, just tap Party Light via Fiestable and your phone's display will even start to mirror the sound system's lighting effects, flashing and changing color in time with the music. I have connected 3 different phones and it worked flawlessly. There is no limit to the number of smartphones. It is possible to connect multiple GTX-XB72 speakers to add extra power to your sound system with Wireless Party Chain via BluetoothR technology. with one device to be the 'Party Host' and music can be synced in other speakers. GTX-XB72 has built-in FM radio tuner. USB port can be used to connect USB devices with audio files which can be played. It supports MP3 and WMA formats. The built-in microphone is very useful for hands-free calls. It will automatically divert the call from the phone to speaker using Bluetooth. The built-in handle is very useful to take this speaker anywhere inside home or outdoor parties. I have tried Karaoke on this speaker and quality is pretty good. The audio input allows you to connect portable MP3 players without Bluetooth connectivity. GTX-XB72 is definitely a great addition to any house and it will pump up the party mood with beautiful LED lights and outstanding sound.
