Bose® SoundTouch Portable

 

I'm replacing a mid-sized Panasonic stereo with this and iTunes. This lets me get rid of all my CDs and a big bulky stereo box, but the sound is inferior and having the speakers right next to each other is painful to listen to. Still, there's the...

Extreme convenience. Plug it in, or pick it up and walk into another room without stopping the music. Setup was easy on my Mac

Basically sounds like two computer speakers taped together. Bass distorts at high volume with things like "Mad Season - Above" and the loudest setting is just loud enough. You won't be blasting any concerts with this, but I guess it sounds pretty good...

Great for the office

 

This was a great purchase if you want music without having to have your phone or MP3 player hooked up to it all the time. Just hook it up the first time and you are good to go.

Great Sound

 

the size and sound are amazing. It is a great portable sound system. the only strange thing is that Bose makes you download detailed instructions from the internet. Seems strange considering the price of this unit.
