Review of the Phorus PR1 Receiver

I don’t normally do these sorts of things because there are usually plenty of good reviews by actual review companies or tech companies, but there don’t seem to be a lot of them out there for this product right now.

Admittedly, I’m not very good at this.  I will try my best though.

First of all, the device is a little on the pricey side, compared to crapple’s airplay express thing. The price at this moment is $149 and is available directly through Phorus’s website (while it is shipped and processed by Amazon’s store http://www.phorus.com/pr1-receiver).  The image above shows the Phorus PR-1 (on left) plugged into some sort of speaker.

The build quality is good, and it comes with two sets of audio cables (use whichever you need or prefer) and it is nice and compact.

This is what comes in the box:
PR1 Receiver
Power adapter
Audio cable (mini jack to mini jack, 6′)
Y-adapter (mini jack to 2 RCA)
USB-A to USB micro cable
