    Default Speaker dock / ultra portable speaker system.

    Hi all,

    I'm after a new speaker dock for my phone and tablet. Hopefully bluetooth but doesnt have to be. Most important is that its compact but gives a real kick.

    I did have a Klipsche iGroove HG but its a but rubbish now as its the old 30 pin adapter with the OOOLLDD switched cables so that it doesn't charge anything any more.

    Can anyone recommend a more upto date dock that kicks out a real decent sound but isn't too heavy or big.

    Many thanks all

    eight AA batteries?

    doesn't make sense? my 6 watt speaker eats 6 AA's in 2 hours.

    However, when it's connected to the mains, this thing kicks!

    Many thanks all.

    The Roland is a bit expensive for what I'm after but looks very interesting

    I think I'll keep my eyes peeled for one of them logitechs. Does it kick out a decent amount of low ends for its size?

    It's not as powerful as the bose when in battery mode, when connected it kicks out a fair amount of bass, thing is, it's bloody defined and balanced for such a small device.. The highs are smooth and pretty darn separated (real silk dome tweeters vs paper cone fullrange drivers in the bose). I tell ya, i was pretty disappointed with the battery on the thing, but the sound quality trumps it all.

    If you want bass i'd suggest to look at the monster beatbox portable. That thing kicks some serious butt in the bass department.

    I'm not fussed about battery really. I'm used to plugging my dock in. Have you ever heard the Klipsch igroove hg? That's what I'm replacing.

    Well i never heard it personally, but judging by the dimensions of the drivers, you're looking at approx. the same volume with the 2 units. Also, the klipsch will probably give a little more weight in the bass department, since it's ported and doesn't use passive rads as the 715i does, but the 715i will be tighter sounding.

    If you're looking for sheer power without a battery then i'd really go with something by soundfreaq..
