    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy good sound device Sound is good and bass is sufficient even without trable and bass tuning knob. Lack of FM antenna and difficult to get the best reception of FM signal inside the room.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK potable unit, but Bluetooth feature irreparably fails Dear Reader: google this system, and you will see reviews replete with complaints for its inoperative Bluetooth... and lack of fixes from mfr (ION). PLUS SIDE: if you don't need Bluetooth source input, for $75 you have a nice quality portable unit for AM/FM and 3mm input. Kudos to B&H customer service staff--friendly help for if/when you return your defective unit. (FYI keep the mfr box and accys. for returns.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable indoor/outdoor speaker. I first saw the ION Tailgater Express Speaker at my wife's cousins house and was amazed at the sound to learn all the other features it had. I was sold, came home and ordered one right away. I really happy with my purchase. Just moved in to a new house and use it on the backyard all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Block Party!!! Brilliantly designed little box really sounds full and detailed. It's a bit smaller than I anticipated, but that's a good thing. I love that they put in a USB charger, radio and mic input. The mic input can make this a poor-man's karaoke player, haha.
