This review is from: Acoustic Research Portable Bluetooth Wireless Outdoor Speaker (AWSBT1) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I saw this at BBBeyond and noticed made by AR. In the day, AR was a fine quality inexpensive speaker made in USA. This was made in China, I took a chance knowing I could return easily if not satisfied. It easily synced to my Droid and Mac with little effort. It was worth the upgrade on the quiet speakers built in the Mac alone. I can take it to motel rooms, the beach, cookouts, etc. I cranked up the volume playing STP and noticed no rattling. I suppose it would rattle a little at full volume but it was loud enough for my taste. Overall very satisfied. By the way, it is at closeout price at BBB for 70, regular 90. I used the 20% off coupon BBB sends frequently.So 58$ with tax!
Word of warning, however. It comes with a cover on back to hold your "device, wallet and keys for safe storage". I guess that could be good in certain situations, but if you leave it somewhere someone could "snatch and run" then you could possibly lose some your most prized possessions. Since I am 55 I cannot see myself chasing someone in the sand trying to get my "life" back. I would chain it to umbrella pole if I brought it on the beach around a bunch of strangers.
