Diva 2.1

The Diva 21. (£59) don’t live up to their name! What do I mean by that? Well when I hear the word “Diva” in asscociation to the music world I think of over rated, over opinionated, over paid, and not worth worrying with. Not one of those phrases applies to the excellent, understated, modest and very reasonably priced Diva 2.1.

Stylish, contemporary looking and ultra-compact speakers, they’re simply perfect for any lifestyle.

Now if ever a quote was ever full of subjective statements that is it. So, as with the HarmonyAudio review let’s take a look at their statements:

Impeccable Sounds

Diva 2.1 allows you to blast out your favourite music without being too loud. It provides the listener with a spacious and extremely warm realistic sound.

It’s capable of reproducing sound quality at an incredible high standard, with particular attention paid to detail.

Can’t complain about the sound quality. As you will see from the pictures below I have been using it on my desk with the Mac Pro, but as part of the review I moved it around several rooms and distances from where I usually sat and it was as good as anything else I have used in this category.

Connect your iPod

Diva 2.1 also works perfectly with your iPod, enabling you to obtain maximium sounds with a fantastic quality.

So whether you have an iPod nano, mini or classic, you can take full advantage of Diva 2.1 simply by connecting it to the headphone port of your iPod.

YES! Perfect use of two excellent products – ideally some form of dock would be nice. NOT integrated into the 2.1, but as a seperate add on would have been perfect. Of course you can use any existing dock you have, but if you don’t have one then the option would be useful.

Unique aluminium design

The innovative design of the tube subwoofer ensures high performance and superb detailed bass.

This special design allows for optimal performance ensuring a lack of distortion and greater sound time and time again.

Style with a great Sound

Stylish, contemporary looking and ultra-compact speakers, they’re simply perfect for any lifestyle.

When it comes to music, we all have exceptionally high standards. We want superb audio quality, a tasteful design and at an amazing price. Diva 2.1 delivers this and much more.

The beauty of the speakers is that they are entirely portable, and at the same time they always retain excellent quality of sound.

The unique aluminium tube subwoofer ensures that sound has a powerful bass, so share the music with your friends and family!

Purely a case of personal preference of course for both of these points. Sat underneath the two Apple Cinema Displays it blends in perfectly and is a nice ‘addition’ to the set up. Located elsewhere it looked just fine – you either like the design and material or you don’t. I do.

Easy Installation

The way in which Diva 2.1 is designed allows ease of use and simplicity in terms of connection.

Simply connect the tube subwoofer to the computer using the standard 3.5mm audio jack.

Connect the power supply and It is as easy as that! And with their ultra-compact design they are ideal to carry around on any journey.

Errr – couldn’t be easier!

Small in size yet big on sound

Searching for the ultimate cutting edge in music technology, a music jukebox and interactive listening experience all rolled into one?

Well the wait is finally over, Miglia introduce Diva 2.1.

As a conclusion that is just about perfect. These are very good, very affordable and very well designed to ‘fit’ with your Mac and your Mac life.

All that is left then is to show you some pictures!

  1. When I think of a diva, I think of Maria Callas who was definitely not over-rated. From your description, it seems that this speaker system has gone back to the original meaning.

    Looks good too 🙂

  2. Too true Dunks, though I was wondering what went wrong in the keyboard department! Hey Chris, what’s going on? I’m not a fanboy but that thing looks like the crappy Dell keyboard we have which came with our … Dell. That thing is like using a mechanical typewriter 🙁
    My favourite keyboard is the one on my G4 powerbook. Better even than the new bluetooth one which comes a very close second. You should treat yourself Chris to the new wired Apple keyboard since Sands has pinched the wireless one

  3. That is the diNovo Edge keyboard. Is one of the best items I own. Far better than any of the Apple keyboards.

    The amount of programmable keys is such a time saver, it is far more comfortable to use, and the fact it is rechargeable is a godsend!

    Yeah they do look cool though.

  4. @ Chris

    I take back my comment about your keyboard. I checked it out at the Logitech website. It is indeed an impressive bit of kit. IKt is pretty expensive though. I suppose you’d recommend it anyway. What is battery life like? They say it is windows compatible but don’t say so of Apple. Are some of the functions windows only?

  5. It works fine with the Mac. You have to put up with a couple of Windows Keys and the Command and Options keys are the wrong way round, but you can change those and program all the keys pretty much how you want with Controller Mate.

    Best keyboard I have ever used, in every way!!!

    It comes with a dock to recharge so I have no idea how long the battery lasts as every 4 or 5 days I drop it in the dock over night to charge it up.

  6. I have am working on a score in my hotel room in Bombay having just bought the system – perfect size and great sound but one side has packed up and can’t get any access to the insides!

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers
