To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The build quality is good with a fiber body and wooden finish, the sound quality is great as it emulates the speakers of an old transistor when in the retro mode (collection that is in built). Bought it as a present for my father on his birthday.
Delivered 03-Nov-2018 Saregama Carvaan SC03 Portable Digital Music Player (Cherrywood Red) Sold by: D-Cart Return window closed on 13-Nov-2018 6,389.00 i bought this product for my parents who stay in Varanasi. From last 1 week this set was having problems with the charging. so i registered a complaint with the service center. the technician who visited the house named Vishwakarma quickly checked and came to conclusion that nothing is wrong with the charging portal or the adapter. when again i called him to report that probably there is some problem with the charging cable & i also told him that though this is under warranty period but still if for accessories it is not covered my parents would pay, then but he promised that he would 100 percent visit my home within 2 days. when 4 days passed i called him to which he replied that now that call is closed you need to register a new complaint when i told him i would complain about this he told me you can go ahead. Kindly take this matter very urgently otherwise we have to file a proper complaint prescribed by law.
This is not just any other music device. It’s nostalgia redefined for generations. My mom and I have been hooked to it ever since it arrived this morning. The Saregama library is filled with classics spanning 6 decades of Indian music. Also, patrons of the iconic All India Radio Geetmala are in for joy. The legendary Ameen Sayani mesmerising you through ageless tracks is a thing of beauty to listen to. The Bluetooth speakers are pretty decent too. The battery backup is mind blowing. There are your usual USB ports and Aux support too. What are you waiting for? Go ahead. Bring some joy to your life. 10/10 recommend.
Got it as a gift for my husband...he loves it....has an awesome collection of the evergreen hindi songs, even classical music and the best is the Geetmala collection, listening to ameen sayani is just awesome. FM radio works perfectly with good quality sound. Added value is the USB port and Bluetooth facility included.
Product looks as good as it promises with it's transistor look, easy to carry. Quality sturdy.
A bit pricey but with so much to offer one might say it is fine. However battery life could have been better, so giving 4 star
Nothing too great! They got a whole catalogue of old songs, so they thought why not build a product around it. If they would have spent more time to develop the product, it would have been much better. All they’ve done is focus on the retro look, dump in the songs...that’s it! ‘itney bade dabbe main’ they could’ve done lot better.
Could’ve tied up with Bose or Harmen Kardon to officially take care of sound output, then tie up with folks with technology expertise in long lasting batteries! Battery life sucks big time! Such a big box, yet you can’t get in a small battery like that in iPhone? Even mediocre smartphones have better battery life than this!
People my parents age don’t bother much about sound, so this sort of emotional connect with old music has allowed this company to thrive.
That’s a shame, as a company you should look at value add and worthiness of your product.
Its not really worth 6k.. There is cheap plastic used & even one fall can easily damage it.. Its very slow in response & takes around 10s to play next song , probably because songs are loaded on a cheap memory card.. Even the sound quality is just decent. & thanks to new return policy, I cannot even return it. So basically its the songs for which you are paying 6k for & not for product quality..... So unless its price doesn't bother you, you can go for it
I purchased this just for my dad hoping the price is all for the retro looks. But it turns out the quality it delivers is very crisp and clear. Yes it has v low bass, but it's not what it's been made for. Pop songs sound really good on it with low punch.
This device takes you back in time! The soulful melodies are just amazing! The sound quality is extremely top notch and clear, but it should be noted that it's more suitable for the old songs like those which the device holds. It sounds great even with modern songs, but does not quite have the punch as it's not meant for those songs. The collection itself is a treasure. Songs are played in a random order every time which makes listening a refreshing experience. From the retro looks to the old school sound, everything about Carvaan teleports you back to the golden years of music. The device has all the practical controls which ensures that you immediately dive into the world of music and don't keep on playing about with settings!
Brings back memories of radio and transistor days, listening to vintage music and radio shows like Binaca Geetmala, pure gold. Now in the age of internet, it is easy to access information, songs and shows on youtube, websites, etc., but nothing gives the feels and happiness as having this gem, with all my fav. collections as well as Ameen Sayani geetmala in one portable beautiful device <3 Thank you for coming up with this concept and making it a reality
