The original Beats Pill bluetooth speaker came out before the Apple acquisition. Way back in 2012. The new Pill+ is a welcomed update, and under Apple, it got a full re-design and improvements to audio quality. A sleek new form factor, clean, simple controls, & an improved app.

Roland is bringing back the sounds of the 80s with their new collection of retro miniature synthesizers based on their most popular models from the era: the Jupiter 08 from 1981, the JX-3P from 1983, and the Juno-106 from 1984. They dock with Roland’s mini keyboard or plug into any external keyboard, powered by batteries for portability or via USB.

It will blend in tastefully with your decór while providing crisp, clear, room-filling sound. B&O’s BeoPlay bluetooth A6 speaker does not look like a speaker, which is a good thing; but it does feature 5 amp & 5 speaker BANG & OLUFSEN sound & that is a very good.
