When it comes to picking out the best AirPlay speaker for you it is important to make sure that you understand the features you actually want. Wanting a great sounding speaker that supports AirPlay and is within your budget just isn’t enough any more
You need to think about whether you want a speaker that is going to stay in one fixed location, or whether you want to take it with you when you move around the house, or even take it with you outside. You need to think about how important other methods of connection (like Bluetooth, DLNA, wired USB, Ethernet etc) are to you and how well they will suit the range of devices you want to use with it.
