Hello.
There was a need for a portable speaker for listening in the outdoors. Need a loud sound and preferably high-quality. I would also like to have a radio and a card slot. But I noticed that in all our models, for some reason, only bluetooth is made. I think the speakers with a power of less than 10W should not be considered. Here's what I looked at:
B&O Play Beolit - really judging by the reviews of the dynamics there 5 * 2, radio, you can insert a USB flash drive
MS-288 - radio, card, flash drive, bluetooth, power 5 * 2
Or should you look at JBL Go Portable, Charge?

$662 for the B&O to $24 for the JBL is quite the range.
stores are well stocked with these devices so I suggest you go out and audition some.

Don't expect good quality or reliability with cheap all-in-one units but here's more:

Ummmm....change the card slot to a CD and you have what is called a portable stereo.

Oh yes! :) Thank you for reminding me! I forgot to mention the detail that I doubt whether it is worth taking a cheap column for nature (in case of damage) and then buy yourself and for the house but already very good or buy one very good and not think about it?

Why not get something like Bose S1? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ridk9V4Rp0Q
It is loud, dynamic, has decent bass, does not pierce a hole in your ear, fairly clear (Especially in far field) and built like a tank

I purchased a Beolit 15 a couple of years ago and couldn't be happier with it. The sound quality is great, it's plenty loud (the latest model is supposed to be even louder), really good battery life and true 360 sound. I can plop it down in the middle of the dock and everyone gets the same experience. A few of my friends have purchased one after hearing mine. Highly recommended.

Would a good, old fashion boombox not work, there is a ton of that stuff on Amazon.ca., BestBuy or at Canadian Tire
Newer models have cd and Bluetooth and battery power if needed.
