Summary: This little speaker surprised me completely. I was skeptical of the sound that was going to come from it, but I am extremely happy with my purchase. And the added bonus was the free stand. I have taken this little speaker to a few friends houses for some outdoor get-togethers and it really has been a hit. Two of my friends have bought them after seeing mine. It has almost gotten the point of where I might start renting it if my other friends don't buy their own.
