Nice technical and to-the-point review. When I finally decided the tiny Wavemaster Mobi was no longer sufficient due to the lack of bass (though stellar in reproducing everything else for something that size) the DEM was what I went for and I still haven't found any reason to look back. If you can live with the limited battery life and maximum volume it's capable of, there is no other speaker that will give you this much audio fidelity _and_ portability for the buck. Yes, there have been other successful attempts to create high-quality Bluetooth speakers since then, but anything that can seriously be compared to the DEM will be significantly larger _and_ significantly more expensive. I don't think anyone will be able to top its price/performance ratio anytime soon. Denon just did a fantastic job with this one, it's a technological milestone.
