Pros Excellent Sound, Great volume, relatively compact, many connection optionsExcellent sound quality, great volume, easy multi-speaker management, AirPlay compatableGreat sound quality, great volume, battery powered, easy to connect/control multiple speakersGreat sound quality, compact, loud, multiple connection optionsMakes guitars sound great, Alexa built-in, loud
Cons Expensive, multi-speaker management leaves a bit to be desiredExpensive, somewhat large, no BluetoothExpensive, somewhat heavy to move around when used in battery modeSlightly pricier than some comparable modelsExpensive, not the best in its price range
Bottom Line Our first recommendation for those looking for a single speaker that can flood your main living space with incredible soundOur top choice for those looking for the best-sounding focal point for a multi-speaker systemA compelling, battery-powered addition to an already impressive lineupImpressive sound in a package that offers pretty much every connection avenue possibleA good speaker with great aesthetics, but its overall sound quality can't live up to its price tag
