Zalman ZM-NSP100 Portable Notebook Speaker Review

Article Index

There was actually a point in my life that I owned over 4000 albums and CDs. For the younger crowd unfamiliar with the term, albums are pressed pieces of vinyl used to reproduce analog sound. Kind of like bigger, two sided CDs that most audiophiles will argue to the death sounded better. Of course, the argument of whether putting up with a little hiss and pops is worth it in order to get a smooth sound wave is one for another time and place. The real point here is the incredible amount of space the music collection took up. Not drive space, physical space.

 

Then along came the MP3, as well as other digital formats, which would allow one to neatly tuck a music collection of that size onto your HDD and later onto single portable devices. Sure, MP3s are lossy, but they have improved to the point where it is barely noticeable. Just imagine, you can now take your entire music collection with you wherever you go….in many cases, even on your cell phone (which I am sure you never leave home without). Simply downsizing the amount of space your media takes up has truly turned the world into a portable media haven. It seems everyone is carrying some type of media with them, music, movies, TV shows. One of the big drawbacks of downsizing is sound quality. This only stands to reason, as simple physics tell us that the smaller a speaker is, the less air it is able to move in order to create sound. Even notebook speakers suffer from the dilemma and, in many cases, a set of external speakers makes all the difference in the world.

 

The Zalman ZM-NSP100 Clip On Notebook Speakers are designed to give your notebook a big boost in volume, clarity and sound field. The Zalman ZM-NSP100 speakers are not fixed mounted in a notebook, so positioning can be correct for you to get the most from your audio. Featuring 6 watts RMS total and two 30mm drivers, the ZM-NSP100 speakers can fill a room with sound, but are still small enough to be easily portable. With Plug and Play through a single USB 2.0 connection, set up and installation is a snap. The Zalman ZM-NSP100 speakers are available in black/silver and white/green to match your style.
