Summary: Excellent outdoor speaker with clear sound.. Purchased it as a Father's Day gift for my husband who absolutely loves it and says I could not have given him a better gift. Only drawback is you have to let its battery conpletely die before recharging to allow use. Otherwise, we really enjoy its sound quality.
Totally wireless and plenty of power, Soundcast Jr is great.

Summary: I really enjoy the totally wireless aspect of this product. The battery has plenty of life between charges. I selected the Jr because it had great sound quality and was well suited for my application. The original (not Jr. model) had more power than I needed and weighed more. The new model, Melody, would have been even better regarding adequate sound output, battery life and portability. But, it utilizes bluetooth for sound transmission.
Summary: I have been eying one of these for over 2 years now after hearing its big brother, the Outcast, at a friends house and blew me away how clear and powerful this thing sounded. Amazon had this used, but sold by Amazon for $499. Bought it and looks and sounds just as new. I dont think its really worth it to spend twice the amount on the regular Outcast. unless you are throwing rave parties at full blast. This thing is LOUD!!!
Summary: This is a wonderful product. I've got it hooked up to my amplifier and am able to stream Pandora to the speaker which is roughly 200' outside. The speaker provides excellent sound in a huge radius. Battery life is amazing! Really thought I might need the full size OutCast, but the Jr is more than capable of doing the job. Fills my backyard pool area with great sound and is very versatile. Highly recommend.
Summary: My husband bought me the Outcast Jr. for my birthday, and I have been using it for a couple of months now. We DID NOT purchase a transmitter. Instead, I simply plug in either my phone or iPod via the auxiliary-in jack, and it works FABULOUSLY!! Our intent was to purchase a transmitter at a later time, but I'm not sure I care if I ever get one.
Summary: I have had the Soundcast Jr. for 2 years now. It sits on my deck in the backyard and is used constantly during the summer months during BBQs and pool parties. The sound it produces is top quality. I have never turned it up all the way for fear my neighbors would call the cops. I have the UAT transmitter hooked up to a Squeezebox Touch in the house with the transmitter sitting on a window sill. The Touch can be controlled directly or through an iPhone or Android app.
Summary: I have a large back yard and the sound from this speaker was wonderful. It distributed the sound evenly without drowning anyone out. I never even had to turn the volume to its max. The system is expensive, but worth every penny. Lightweight enough to handle. Charging is easy. I can't say enough good things about it. My brother is a critic of most sound systems - and even he was very impressed.
Summary: Works quite good, sound quality is good along with battery life. Wireless connection through proprietary transmitter works well and is easy to set up. The only downside when I purchased these was being shipped 2 different versions of the speaker (1 older NiCad battery pack and the other newer Li-Ion), wish they had been the same. But this is not a product issue, but a vendor issue.
