I’m in love with a new speaker that plays music from so many sources it would be ridiculous if it wasn’t insanely awesome. It’s the Revo SuperConnect ($427) and it’s a WiFi-enabled, beautifully crafted speaker that is revolutionizing the way I connect with music.
The best sounding Internet-enabled speaker I had tested prior to the Revo SuperConnect was the Bose SoundTouch.

Not only can it sync up with Spotify directly without having to use a workaround like porting all phone audio to the speaker using AirPlay, but it plays audio from a number of sources that I’d normally never consider listening to (until now) because they had not been packaged well enough.
