Audioengine B2 Bluetooth Speaker
You won’t often find high fidelity audio equipment wrapped in plastic enclosures, and for good reason. Based on their award-winning A2+ speakers, Audioengine’s B2 couples a hand-built, acoustically isolated wooden cabinet to hi-fi components such as an extended range Bluetooth module & aptX decoder (with A2DP and AVRCP support), a 24-bit DAC, dual 2.75″ Kevlar woofers, and a pair of 0.75″ silk dome tweeters. It pairs easily, without a password, at up to 100 feet away — roughly triple the range of most Bluetooth speakers — and also boasts an auxiliary audio input for wired use plus a detachable magnetic grill. And though it might not fare as well as others on the road due to a lack of built-in batteries and larger size, it handily overpowers similarly priced mainstream portable speakers, making it by far the better option for home use.
