Not exactly a cheap option, but I got one of these for my French classroom. Don’t let the size fool you; it’s incredibly loud and amazing sound quality. I have fairly small classes so I like that I can bring it anywhere in the room. Since it’s out of pocket for me too, I like that it’s portable enough that I can also bring it home everyday and use it there as well.

It is definitely an investment, but for me it has been completely worth it.

I’m looking for a good portable Bluetooth speaker. Need something with good quality sound for rock like music (and others as well ofc). Have a budget of 200 (can get something for 100 or 150 as well). I also want to take it outside sometimes. Thinking of getting this Bose SoundLink Mini II – http://www.amazon.com/Bose-SoundLink-Bluetooth-Speaker-Carbon/dp/B00WK47VEW/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8 but not sure if it is worth it and good for rock music. Help please.

I highly recommend the Bose SoundLink Mini bluetooth speaker II. It’s the best speaker I’ve ever owned and relatively affordable for the quality.

If you don’t mind going a little over $200, you can add on an Amazon Echo Dot via the link above. Though, I think the speaker by itself is a great enough gift! Some places will have it a little bit cheaper, like Costco, but I can’t tell if that’s the SoundLink Mini I or II. They’re fairly comparable, but the II has some minor improvements, like better bluetooth connectivity.

If speakers are not his thing, the Amazon Echo or Dot make nice gifts for a techie. If he reads, the Kindle Whitepaper is really great too.

> It may be suprising to see sound come from a small device but that doesn’t make them unique or justified for the price tag.

It does make them somewhat unique, as few other companies focus on getting the most sound out of the smallest amount of space. Whether they’re worth the price tag is subjective. If you appreciate sound quality and price over looks and size, then you’re not their target audience. Wife approval factor is a pretty big deal, you see it all the time with all sorts of things.

> You are able to find a better quality system in the same form factor for a cheaper pricetag. How much cheaper? 1/2 to 1/3 the cost.

Like what, for example?
Where can I find something for $100 or less that beats the SoundLink Mini II, or something for $100 or less that outperforms the Acoustimass 3 Series V, or something for $500 or less that outperforms the Acoustimass 10 series V, and just for the heck of it, something that costs $2000 or less that outperforms the Lifestyle 650?

Now remember, whatever you suggest has to be the same form factor or smaller, and not look ugly as sin (because wife approval factor).

So I’m moving to college in NYC in the fall, and I’ve been faced with the issue of how to fit my turntable in my dorm. I didn’t want to lug my whole stereo setup there as it would take too much room, but it was looking like I had to. Until just now!

I got this speaker as a graduation gift so I had a speaker to connect my phone to in the dorms. It looks (and is) tiny but the sound quality is honestly pretty great – good stereo image, clear highs, low lows, etc. If I turn it up about halfway and leave it on my bed I can feel the bass vibrating through my mattress. Naturally it isn’t up to par with, say, a vintage amp paired with some great speakers and there isn’t an EQ on it (or at least I haven’t discovered one), but sacrifices ya know?
I connected my turntable’s stereo jacks to the preamp I already had for my existing setup (found here), then ran an adaptor cable to the aux input on the speaker. Works like a charm!

I thought this would come in handy for anyone moving to an area with little space (like a dorm) who still wants to hold on to their record collection. Happy listening!

There are, like, a million Bluetooth speakers under 13“. What’s your budget? Here’s a really expensive one: Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II (Carbon) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WK47VEW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_euSAxb8FDP811

I knew they had some kind of Bluetooth thing

http://www.amazon.com/Bose-SoundLink-Bluetooth-Speaker-Carbon/dp/B00WK47VEW

It’s actually $200, and probably sounds like something 1/4 the price such is everything Bose makes.
