3rd Party Seller through Amazon Prime has the Doss Cloud Book Wi-Fi & Bluetooth portable speaker for $20 shipped. [amazon.com] Looks like a book. Sold for $70 Previously.

Available in lots of colors [amazon.com].

Has bluetooth, but what makes it different from other cheap speakers is that it also has Wi-fi, which lets you hook to Spotify Connect, Pandora, and any DLNA music you have on your home network. (In most cases you need a premium subscription for any of the Wifi speakers to work on Spotify/Pandora).

I have never heard one, but I have owned Wi-Fi speakers from Que, GGMM, & Audio Pro that use the same wireless system called LINKPLAY. [linkplay.com] It is a poor man's chromecast audio (which is a poor man's Sonos). It does most of the same things but not quite as well. I use mine mostly for Spotify which works fine.

You can use 2 in the same room for stereo. Or you can sync them in different rooms around the house to play the same thing.

SD thread of an early deal on the Que Speaker that uses the same Linkplay system here.

$20 is quite cheap for a wifi speaker. You can use any of the Linkplay apps if you have other speakers.

Just got mine in and I am overall very pleased.

The WiFi functions work fine (I do have strong Wifi in my place, its 2.4GHz only).

The sound is OK. About what I would expect from a $30-$40 bluetooth speaker.

I just got a similarly sized Bluetooth only (no Wifi) speaker in that sells for $50 and I think they are about the same quality - Vantrue V1 [amazon.com].

The Vantrue has better bass and is a bit more musical tone. (Plus it is water resistant).

However, the Doss plays quite a bit louder, seems equally as well built, and has Wifi so I can use it all around without my phone. 4 Presets so you can program say favorite Pandora Stations or Spotify Playlists, or internet radio stations to play just hitting a button. .

For half the price of the Vantrue its a good deal I think. The Vantrue is going back.

No, it is its own system.

Here are the mostly small brands it works with:LINKPLAY SPEAKERS [linkplay.com]

They do show up as Spotify Connect speakers in the Spotify app so to the extent that app lets you coordinate things between products you can do that. Otherwise they just sync with other Linkplay brands.
