OUR VERDICT - Whether you are looking to start out in the world of Hifi or are looking to replace your dated kit, the latest Tangent Ampster is something of a hifi bargain. It outperforms one box wireless systems costing much more and gives you the freedom to choose your own speakers that match your decor. As the name suggests, the Ampster MKII features Bluetooth which allows you to stream anything from your chosen device but it also features an Optical input and an Analogue input. This means that you can ditch the soundbar and connect your TV to the Tangent Ampster and have a far better sound, especially if you match it with a pair of floorstanders. The analogue input means that you can either connect a turntable for a complete hifi package or you can connect a CD player or Tuner. The natural partner for this would be the Tangent CD & Tangent Tuner.
It really is quite astounding that you can achieve a hifi sound for less than £200 but Tangent have proved that is possible with the Tangent Ampster BT. - Thoroughly Recommended.
The second generation of Tangent’s award-winning Ampster BT Amplifier is a small and conveniently sized amp with a wealth of features for various home and commercial applications. By combining your Tangent Ampster BT ll amplifier with good quality speakers, such as the Tangent Spectrum X4 or X5s, the result is stunning optimum audio reproduction for the system’s size and price.
The new Tangent Ampster BT ll fits effortlessly into Tangent's new mini system. By combining the Tangent Tuner ll & CD ll, you can enjoy a complete, compact sized HI-FI system with premium audio quality and performance. Each Ampster BT ll, Tuner ll and CD ll is less than the width of an A4 sheet of paper and is only 7cm high, making the system only 21cm high when stacked! So the small size of each component takes up less space in the living room, kitchen - or wherever you enjoy your music.
With the second generation BT II you no longer have to worry about turning off your amplifier. It goes on standby when the music stops whilst playing music via Bluetooth and wakes automatically when you resume playback. In addition, the Ampster BT II can be woken from standby from the AUX minijack input which allows you to connect most multiroom or network systems to it. For example, add a Chromecast Audio, AirPort Express, or other Wi-Fi devices to the AUX input - then the Tangent Ampster BT II will turn on as soon as you start playing through your network. Note that the Ampster needs to go to standby automatically while being set on the chose source in order to use the wake up function. If turned off manually it the wake on bluetooth or AUX is not active.
The remote control for the Tangent Ampster BT ll also operates the Tuner ll and CD ll, so when all three components are stacked together or placed separately, each remote control can be used to operate all components. Or you can choose to use only one remote control and put the two other remotes away! Another useful feature of this second generation Ampster BT is an IR infrared input. This enables you to place the Tangent Ampster BT II wherever it’s not possible to operate with its remote control. Just place the supplied IR eye somewhere where the remote control can reach it, then connect the cable to the External IR input on the rear panel.

Brilliant sound from a small box
Bought this to compliment a Tangent CD player. Together they work great, I have hooked an amazon alexa also and the combination is fantastic. - RS
