Bluetooth That Wows

We went to Head-Fi's CanJam 2015 having never heard of RIVA, but by the end of the show they were all we could talk about. In fact we liked it so much, we ended up bringing one home to play with. After a critical listening session in our boardroom, we're convinced the Turbo X is something special - it's the most impressive bluetooth speaker we've ever heard at the price range. Such a discovery shouldn't be kept secret, so we convinced RIVA to offer their game changing product to our members.   

Exclusive to Massdrop members, score a free RIVA Travel Bag ($30 value) when you join the drop.

A Mode for Everyone

Versatility is the name of RIVA's game. Whether you're looking for a pure aural experience, a tune-blasting companion, or audio you can lose yourself in, the Turbo X's got a mode that's right for you. 

Normal: The audiophile dream. Music sounds clean and natural, allowing for optimal dynamic range and separation.

TURBO: Blast your music and rock out at parties or outdoor events. TURBO mode uses an aggressive EQ and a smart compressor to reach sound levels over 100 dB without distorting.

Trillium™ Surround: Immerse yourself in an expansive soundstage with the Trillium™ Surround mode, perfect for gaming and watching movies.

Quality Sound

The Turbo X employs three ADX 60 mm full range proprietary drivers and four ADX custom dual piston bass radiators that work in harmony to bring your sound to life. Rocking 45 watts RMS of power, an impressive 26+ hours battery life, and a speakerphone equipped with microphone noise and echo cancellation, the Turbo X sounds as good as it looks. Check out what the folks over at Head-Fi (moedawg140) and Changstar have to say about RIVA's Bluetooth speaker.
