Rubbish, don't do it


Hi, I've had my Makita DMR 200 for around a year. Goodish sound and although other people have criticized the Bluetooth I had no issues with mine (with i phone)

HOWEVER! for some unexplained reason, and without warning it just stopped working. No lights no response at all. New battery used, nothing I also tried the plug in charger it came with... still dead.
I went to Bunnings for warranty they said no you have to go to Makita and if you don't have the receipt don't bother turning up. I didn't have the receipt.
The DMR200 has had very little use as well, maby once a week for an hour or two only.

Purchased in January 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse for $160.00.

Waste of time


I bought this so that when I'm out in the middle of nowhere and am unable to get a radio signal to my radio I can always listen to the radio via the internet using this Bluetooth speaker. It was a nice idea but the Bluetooth signal fails after a few minutes - guaranteed. The only way to use this speaker is to connect with an aux lead. What's the point in Bluetooth? May as well just advertise it as a speaker which connects to your phone.

Purchased in October 2018.

Good for indoors only


The lousy 10 watt speaker crackles when you turn the volume past 1/4. It has a nice sound, but not on a building site. Im going to try put a 30 watt speaker in mine. May as well just use the phone on its own. At least I can turn that up without distrortion.

Mate, this is distortion. The piddly 10w speaker gets to about 4 on my iphone before this happens. Worse on talk back radio. Bring it back for a refund. This is sub standard for a "building site" speaker and not up to Makita usuall standard. I have just spent $100AU on a AOMAIS GO which rated #1 on top 10 bluetooths (and the cheapest) It is a ripper. Loud, exceptional bass, fantastic stereo, and water & shockproof to boot. The sound compares to a bose or even my B&O active speakers. Worth every cent. This is what a Makita speaker SHOULD sound like.
