Portable speakers/table radio

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for a set of portable speakers or a table radio for my kitchen/dining room. If I could choose one, it would be the Meridian F80 CD Receiver, but $3000 is too much.

iPod speakers are also a nice option, but almost none of them have a CD player.

Truth is, I just need a nice music source that I can move around relatively easy, and for about $300-$500.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Juan M

Hi Juan.
Denon, Polk, and Onkyo offer systems in that price range. I'm sure there are others, too, but those might get you going.

You MUST check out Tivoli products. They make more great small radios than you can shake a stick at, seriously. Go, go now, what are you waiting for?

What? You need more convincing? Oh, very well. My love affair with analog FM radio is well documented on my blog. However, the ability of internet radio to bring variety and diversity to everyone around the world is thrilling, even if the sound isn

Juan - I'd be interested in knowing what you eventually bought. Let us know here. There is SO much available for the iPod it's crazy.

I did check out the Tivoli products at a local retailer. Features aside, they sounded incrementally better to me than my $60 Sony boombox. I didn't think they were worth the $$$. Just my two cents. I'd get the Meridian F80 if I wanted to spend $3000(!) on a table radio...

The base Tivoli is wonderfully musical and a delight to operate at ~ $100.

The Meridian F80 provides astonishing sound for a table radio - but it is ridiculously pricey. Those pesky diminishing returns...
