    sonos makes a good speaker as well as bose. my girlfriend got this little one when she got a new phone and it's not bad. i picked up a waterproof one at TJ Maxx for like $29 and it's badass. great for the beach or outdoors.

    i seriously considered the sonos system but i just leave the portable speaker in the kitchen for cooking. i had a house that had docks for playing music but it was kinda meh.

    I have one of these and it sounds great...has to be plugged in, no internal battery so it's not really portable...Bluetooth cuts out if the phone leaves the room...once again, awesome sound for $300-$400.

    You are a home owner. Run some wires. It isn't that hard to run them through the attic or basement.
