If you are going to buy a speaker system – than I recommend you to go some place where you can listen to the sound in person so in that way you know what are you buying and is the money you are going to pay really worth it or not.
I personally don’t use any kind of portable Bluetooth speakers. I use Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver to stream music wirelessly to my home audio system and in this way I can hook up any Bluetooth enabled device to it. And if I want AirPlay I connect My audio system to Apple AirPort Express and stream music via Wi-Fi network using AirPlay. It not also sound great but also saves some money.
