Spending the summer at the beach is amazing, right? Imagine spending it rocking out to your favorite music or catching up on game scores in between elaborate sandcastle reconstruction duties. Now, you can!
Did you know that Sirius and XM both carry a line of boomboxes that run on batteries – thus making your satellite receiver 100% portable!
Another awesome and lightweight option for some serious poolside or porch-grilling good times is the Sony Portable Travel Speaker.
I, shall we say, “borrowed” one of these handy gadgets to try out a a friend’s housewarming barbecue. I knew there would be a bunch of snooty local Chicago musicians (aka, my friends) there hanging out on our friend’s porch eating veggie burgers and “swimming” in the new crummy baby-pool in the backyard. I figured this would be the best time to test out the Sony Portable Travel Speaker and see how the sound quality stood up among the my-guitar-is-cooler-than-yours din.
The phrase, “Oh, this song is my JAM!!!! What are we listening to” was heard more than once after I turned on Sirius XM First Wave. I had situated the Sony Portable Travel Speaker and the Stiletto 2 I had attached to it, on a table next to the guacamole in the middle of the deck and the sound was heard throughout the deck and the backyard grotto (read: crummy baby-pool). At $19.99, my friends and I feel that the Sony Portable Travel Speaker is the new summer must-have – along with one of the cute iPad cases TSS-Radio now carries to protect your new baby from the potential damage from the aforementioned sandcastles!
