Overall a Good Digital Media Player. Gold for Senior Generation.
29 January 2019
Build quality and finish is very good and it is still light weight. Sound quality is above average - suits for the music it holds. It is very easy to operate. The provision of FM, blue-tooth and USB inputs gives good expandability.
The collection of songs is above average. Since HMV to RPG, they've the best repository of bollywood music but they do not have good understanding of making nice collections of songs. Their lack of this skill helped Gulshan Kumar made T-Series a grand success. Since the age of cassettes to this beautiful piece of digital music player, I've always found some baggage in their choice of collection. Sometimes it feels they push their choice than what listeners want. Sometimes, it looks they want to push some songs just because they've paid for rights of the whole set.
The Set went blank once and they promptly replaced after call to customer care and some basic diagnosis over phone. This was during warranty period. I got it from Amazon as no store was even aware that such a product has been launched. Now a days, I see a lot of Carvaan boxes on so many stores. Selling network is good now, and I hope service network is as good after warranty is over.
Overall a very good product - this is the (almost) best thing they could have done with the golden collection they've. This is a perfect all in one portable device with a good collection for senior generation. I still find Amazon Prime Music collection a good add-on for so many rare songs that I did not find in many other repositories. With Prime Music and Carvaan, I've got the best of both worlds.
Edit: In this old review, one of the first things I mentioned is that the sound is above average and suits the music it HOLDS. You buy this for pre-stored bollywood OLDIES. Saw a lot many reviews complaining about sound. If anybody buys this as bluetooth or aux speaker, it's a wrong choice. You can get much better speakers under this price. Even an F&D at half this price will give you better bass. Know what you want before reading what they sell... any product.
I bought this as a package. Also saw a lot of reviews about bad product. Either build quality has drastically degraded (shouldn't be the case, I guess, as half a dozen people I know did not face any such issue, except me and I mentioned that replacement experience) - or retailers might be spamming Amazon, but then most of these are verified purchasers! So think twice before you make choice. Prime Music with any ubiquitous bluetooth portable speakers (check jbl go or portonics sound drum or once with similar ratings) can give similar or better results.
