Portable, powerful enough, with a pretty good sound.
on September 15, 2011
This is indeed a basic speaker "system" (I'm not sure how much of a system one thing with a plug-in can be, but I'll play along). The battery life has been good and it offers significantly better volume than my previous MP3 speakers. It's sleek enough, but not especially light--the trade-off for improved volume and bass resolution, I suppose. There is a slight crackle when I adjust the volume, but when you know it's coming, and if you don't do a lot of volume-adjusting, it's not a big deal. I'm pleased with the Portable Stereo System, which I've now used extensively at the beach and to share songs and other files with my girlfriend (who got tired of putting on the headphones, and besides--it's more fun to share the experience!).
But...it does split the difference between a system large enough to have power and good sound and one portable enough to slip into a backpack or purse or something. It's either the best of both worlds or the worst, depending which way you perceive the compromise as having gone.
