It takes 8 d-cells and that lasts you 8-24 hours (depending on volume)???
That’s some expensive listening there.
This a fairly high power Bluetooth speaker compared to most of the other Bluetooth speakers out there. It’s also 3 speakers (not just 1, like most Bluetooth speakers.) It takes power to deliver power.
You can crank this one up to a very high (loud) volume without distortion.
Woot normally sells this version (refurb.) for $149.99. $99.99 is a very good price for this speaker.
I don’t disagree … it just isn’t really useful as a battery-powered speaker with that kind of power requirement (at least not to me).
I have the next version up of http://electronics.woot.com/offers/tdk-a33-bluetooth-weatherproof-speaker-5 and given the battery life problems that they tend to have, I’ve been considering getting something else to keep in the car for tailgates as a backup. So that’s the need I’m looking for, which may be completely unrelated to anyone else’s need.
You can get an adapter (power) cable to power this from your car (12 volt port) if you plan to use this for tailgating. Keep in mind it’s bigger (wider) and heavier than most of the Bluetooth speakers.
My friend had one of these at Bonnaroo last year and it cranked. We ran it off of 110 volt so batteries were not an issue.
This speaker wasn’t designed to be efficient on batteries. It was designed to sound good and it excels at that.
I am seriously tempted to get one…
I just bought this a month ago for $200. It was worth every penny. This speaker is loud, clear, and very full sounding. It’s pretty amazing the sound this thing is able to kick out.
At $105 I’m in. Just checked eBay and for $35 you can get a gimped display model w/o power supply that only work via aux and volume cuts out after 3 minutes. Will be using as a PC speaker so the battery is not a factor for me.
