Almost perfect!

Darren S, 20.11.2017
Great sounding speakers, and plenty of features!
The dual input is very useful, and dsp controls are handy.
My only slight issue is that there's a relatively high level of noise as soon as the speakers are powered on.
If you're playing loud music it's not going to be an issue, but if you're planning on using these in a more intimate setting such as an acoustic gig at a bar, the background noise might be a little offputting.

Great sound at the top price

The important things first:
Clear purchase recommendation for this speaker!

I have compared this speaker with the price-like JBL Eon 612 and my decision has clearly failed in favor of the Opera.

Positive is noticed:
- The dB Technologies Opera 12 convinces by a very clear reproduction of various musical directions over the entire volume spectrum
- the 12-inch bass delivers a bass that is unusual for its size
- seemingly infinite amplifier circuits, until the limiter jumps in
- DSP Preset allows you to quickly adjust the frequency range for a wide variety of applications (flat, bass boost, external subwoofer, single use for voice playback, use as monitor ...)
- very light, nevertheless very valuable processing!
- optically due to the continuous grille very stylish and subtle, in my opinion clearly more appealing than the predecessor series with the open Hochtöner
- Possibility to feed two sources as input in parallel and to grind them together
- small feet for the monitor application, so the housing does not scratch

Now to the few points I might have wanted a little differently:
- quite noisy noise, if you are used to the theater you might have trouble here. For the sounding of festivities, however, the loudness of the music should easily drown out the noise.
- the volume knob is actually very small, which makes the adjustment in the dark or not easier, a slightly larger potentiometer would have provided for greater comfort.
- After extensive testing of the DSP presets, about one-third of them do not seem to make a significant difference to the others
- the mains connection is not lockable (but who can expect at this price already Powercon?)
- The tripod flange is not smooth on the inside, but with thin lamellas. I expect them to rub off during frequent assembly / disassembly and lead to a larger clearance between the box and the tripod.

In summary, it can be said: 1A price-performance ratio and guaranteed fun for many users.
