While these won't come within hailing distance of replicating the sound of a home system, this little guy works pretty well if you're on the road or just wanting some background music.  

Soundcore Flare+ Portable Bluetooth Speaker by Anker, 360° Sound, IPX7 Waterproof, Bigger Bass, Ambient LED Light, 20-Hour Playtime, 4 Drivers with 2 Passive Radiators.  This runs about $100.

If the Amazon Fire Stick had You Tube TV support, I would have jumped on this. Instead, today I ordered a Roku Ultra.

I have been flooded with "pre-Black Friday" emails since the first of the month, but so far not a single stereo system component anyone here might be interested in.

Possibly of interest to some.

Save 10% on your entire on-line purchase!
 
BLACKFRIDAY3
Valid ONLY from midnight on 11/28/19 to midnight on 11/29/19
Offer applies to online purchases only.
To use the code, just type it into the coupon box of the shopping cart and hit re-calculate to see it applied to your total. NOTE: The code will only work during the specified 24 hour period.  The clock is set by Eastern Standard Time Zone.
 
This is a one day only sale.  Regrettably, since we have such a long waiting list for amplifiers it is impossible for us to apply this coupon to existing orders.  If you have an item on order that we haven't pulled parts for yet, you can cancel it and place a new order on Black Friday with the coupon at the expense of losing your spot in line.
 
Also, of note - this is the second year we have had a 10% off everything sale on Black Friday.  Last year we sold 81 amplifiers and or pairs of speakers during that 24 hour period.  Our average build sheet ranges between 50 and 100 orders at any given time, with a 9 to12 week average wait. Last year our list was at about 80 prior to the sale.  The next day it was at 160.  That means that the people who used the coupon first thing in the morning had close to a 12 week wait, while people who used the coupon last thing that evening had a 22 week wait.  All orders are entered by the date and time of day the order was placed.

I know, you decided to spend elsewhere.

Decware ended my search for amplification as far as a design and company goes, I climbed the ladder of their products and I'm very happy. And no audio manufacturer has been better with customer support and communication in my experience. I took a leap of faith in 1997 that I am very glad I did.

This is the only real sale Decware has during a year. It is a good deal, but it does almost double the "waiting time" for a product during the winter and spring months. . . because they receive a heavy response.
