Small speaker for Squeezebox touch


Recommended Posts

Bluetooth speakers most often have a 3.5mm aux input and could serve you purposes well. A couple even have an optical digital input and could take advantage of the Squeezebox's optical output.

I find that Wirecutter.com offers sensible advice on choosing such things. They have two articles on speakers.

Also, my experience with my Squeezebox Touch is that the output from the 3.5mm headphone jack is very much inferior to the output from the line level RCA jacks. Whatever powered speaker you choose you should get a short RCA to 3.5mm cable to connect it. Something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/3-5mm-Stereo-Right-Audio-CNE455759/dp/B01686RQK6?ie=UTF8&keywords=1%20foot%20male%20rca%20to%20male%203.5mm&qid=1483319872&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3

The output from the digital ports is even better yet.

Hi guys, thanks for your feedback.

I looked at "the wirecutter" to have an initial idea and realized how many models are there!

Let me give you some additional info so you can help me to limit the list:

- "Power" : not too much as it is to listen quietly when I'm in bed

- "Small" : something similar to Riva S: 190 mm (7.5 in) L X 64 mm (2.5 in) W X 65 mm (2.6 in) H. A sphere or a cylinder could work as well.

- "DAC" : I would use the Squeezebox one (RCA output as you recommend)

- "WAF" : if possible, also good looking :-)


Budget: based on my needs, I would like to stay under 150$.


Thanks again
