But as amazing, charitable, and touching as this story is, was Muzen Audio successful in creating a desktop speaker that embraces the traditional design of old radios with modern technology, this review will give you all the details you need to know.


There’s nothing like opening a package, even when you know what’s inside, it’s still exciting having something physical in hand for you to ooh and ahh over. And the Muzen was no different.

The Muzen OTR Wood came safeguarded in a faux leather pouch and even that was wrapped in a thin cloth like bag. The pouch is functional for carrying the radio and the cords you’ll need if you’re gonna change locations, like bringing the radio to work or taking it with you on vacations, maybe you want to have some music at a family picnic, etc.

Inside of the pouch, the Muzen radio sits bundled in a nice protective styrofoam, and all of the necessary cords and accessories are neatly packed in the pouch along with a couple of surprises from Muzen, one being a year warranty card, you just need to pay for shipping.

Design & Features

Hand finished in rosewood, the speaker has a polished retro aesthetic, it has black dials for the the volume, source, and tuner. Something so simple as having to physically turn a dial until the station of your choice sounds clear and crisp really does bring you back.

The best thing about the look of this radio is the conversations that comes after the compliments which comes after your peers see the speaker for the very first time. It is truly a unique device.

A multifunctional USB port and Bluetooth are what takes this speaker from being a radio that emulates the past in all the wrong ways to a feature that allows this device to truly take advantage of nostalgia whilst having a purpose and functionality in modern age.

This speaker also has an LED light that glows green when the radio is turned on the FM, orange when it’s receiving AUX input and/or white when connected to the Bluetooth.


Despite the small stature of the Muzen OTR Wood speaker, the sound that comes from it is clear, robust and full; there was never a crackly or a distorted sound coming through to interrupt the listening experience, another great thing is the volume can be as quiet or as loud as you need it to be and it never prioritizes the bass to the exclusion of everything else like so many other radios, the speaker sounds great across the board, it’s a true all-arounder.
