Visaton used to be popular among the clubbers, ceiling speakers being all the rage in 2003 and around that time. I typed the name into Dooyoo not expecting any results to come up as they're such a little known brand outside of that circle but as I'm continuing the job of sorting out all the tech in our spare room I thought I might as well review this ceiling speaker that was installed for three years at our previous address.
Like all ceiling speakers you need a cut a hole and you need to make sure that hole is near to wiring to make your life easier when you have to start connecting wires. All I can say is measure up well and if you're not confident you can do a proper tidy job get someone in, I've seen so many ceilings ruined by bad placement of speakers and although I can do it myself I do worry when doing the cutting.
When connected the quality of sound is excellent but you do need at the minimum two speakers for perfect throw of music while you're listening, at a cost of £28 each that's not going to break the budget but with the market full of wifi speakers now that are fully portable I wouldn't ever think about going back to ceiling speakers.
This one from Visaton worked well and looked smart against the backdrop of my ceiling, it was located in the lounge and connected to run at the same time as the home cinema system for 3D sound that was as full as I could possibly get it at home. It provided good sound for both music and movie sound effects, the latter being the thing most played through the ceiling speaker as its arrival coincided with an excellent iPod dock that surpassed it in both volume and quality.
When we moved I removed the speaker and smoothed the ceiling back over, it is going to charity in a used but fully working condition and that has impressed me after the three years of use I gave it and the fact it has been stored at the bottom of a box for the past two years.
