Sony SRS D8

Among the newly launched SRS series speakers, SRS D8 is the higher end model. Like the other models in the series, it has one Subwoofer and two Satellite speakers. When compared to other speakers in the series, the power output is significantly higher in SRS-D8.



Let's also see the comparison in terms of specifications.

I have compared the sound of all three versions of SRS-Dseries and have found the sound output of D8 significantly better than its peers. If you look at the Subwoofer of SRS D8, there are two outputs for the Bass sound at the bottom which really does their work well. :)



Let us look into some features that catches eye.


  • 60 Watt Power Output (15 + 15 Watt Satellite Speakers, 30 Watt Subwoofer).
  • Separate Bass and Treble control (which is not there is other two models). 
  • Auto Power Off when idle for 25 mins (Turns on automatically when any signal is received).
  • Two Inputs (Mini Jack & RSA).
  • Output for Headphones.
Other specs can be found on official website http://www.sony.co.in/product/srs-d8.

Let us now see the images of the device from all the sides. :)

    Negative:
    1. No Remote.
    2. Power Consumption is high (60 Watts)= So consume 1 unit (Approx Rs. 6) in 16:15 hours of listening.
    3. All the cables is too short & too thin.
    4. Pen Drive songs (MP 3) Always start from 1st track so you have to select a song to play manually, because there is no track display console (LCD)

  3. @Kolkata they don't consume 60 watts of electric power, they have 60w rms output power which is very diferent. Since they are powered by 18v/2a they could consume a maximum of 36w but they never get that high, it's just tgeir maximum electric power supported. I think they may consume something like 22w at maximum volume.

  4. Btw those two holes on the sub are not outputs like this article mention, they are air flow ports.
