Portable media has come a long way since the early MP3 players. As the capacity of our smart devices increases and they move from a single function into a full-spectrum device, so our demands increase along with them. Whereas once portable audio was a solitary experience we can now carry our entirely library of tunes around in our pocket, so the need to be able to share them with others increases too.
Of course even the best smart phones around have pretty feeble speakers, as anyone who has had to endure someone in public attempting to share their song of choice can attest. It’s more of a paper-and-comb sound than something you want to listen to. Thus speakers with easy connectivity are a rapidly growing area of the market, and Antec have dipped their toes into the water with the SP1 Bluetooth speaker.
