Summary: The reason I chose this rating is because I did not get a chance to listen to the product as the case broke upon opening and it has been returned. The case is wonderful looking with nice metal rims around top and bottom portions around opening. The case remains closed by two magnets situated under the bottom metal rim. The problem is they use nice strong magnets which appear not to be connected to the case itself.
Summary: Just bought this speaker for $250 so I could use it in an antique car with no stereo. I tested the sound in the store and was satisfied. I wished it came with a DC to USB power/charger cable but was fairly confident I could find one. (Seems stupid that they wouldn't have considered that people would like the option to charge off of a computer or other USB source like a cigarette lighter) So I found a USB adapter to charge off the cigarette lighter USB plug.
