06-14-2012, 09:54 PM
ok so i have no knowledge of electronics really....i know a lot of u guys are into high end speakers entertainment centers etc,.....so here is what i am looking for....

1)a radio for my deck-preferably to hook up to an i-touch or nano

2)wireless would be awesome but no necessary

3)the only reason i say alternative to bose sound dock is because its expensive....i have heard them play though and i would like at least that sound quality and volume or better

4)trying to keep it under 150....the cheapest i have found a bose is like 180 or so....the cheaper the better though for me!!!!

i googled a bunch of stuff and it seemed a lot of people liked this:

I have the Klipsch and like it. It is perfectly adequate for my entertainment room, but if I were to choose again, I would probably go for the soundfreaq (http://www.amazon.com/Soundfreaq-Platform-Bluetooth-Wireless-System/dp/B004E0ZLZQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1339725508&sr=1-1). I heard one at Target and was impressed -- though I have never owned one. With that said, I also love the portability of my jawbone jambox. Sound is good but not great, but the combo of size, sound, and bluetooth means that it always travels with me.

You may want to consider the Jawbone Jambox. It's in your price range plus it's wireless via bluetooth.

Amazon.com ($149.99) - http://amzn.com/B004E10KI8
