I think. Does anyone know anything about the AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-SP204 portable speakers? They look really nice, but it seems as if they'er older products that are only offered for sale in Japan.

Do you think sound quality is any good at all? I was thinking of using these while I was working in and around the pool. I don't particularly like the idea of risking dropping my iHP-120 in the water, you see.

Here's a babelfish translation:

Compact speaker
(Tax removal ¥6,300.)

The folding type speaker which is convenient to carrying
Powerful amplifier built-in of synthesis 1,200mW.

- With folding system simple setting. It is convenient to also carrying.
- Thin-shaped stylish body of thickness 29.8mm.
- With large aperture 50mm speaker unit powerful sound.
- Amplifier built-in of synthesis 1,200mW.
- Single type 3 dry cell battery 3 these uses.

It is the folding type amplifier built-in speaker which the stereo can play back MD and the CD player etc. easily.

How with the small-sized speaker, 2 repeating 1 set, when it carries, the thin-shaped folding (folding)it solved the trouble thatwith design it be bulkies. *How to put

I remember hearing one of those. My friend owned them and I didn't think very highly of them. Of course, she was powering them to be too loud. I'm not sure what they sounded like at softer volumes, but I don't recall being impressed.

Portable speakers never seem to be even half-way decent with regards to sound quality. I wouldn't buy one just because it's too expensive, but if you want one, go ahead...lol. Really, I'd just plug in my G73s because they've got a 110dB sensitivity or something and are really loud.
