This review is from: JVC SP-A120B Portable Stereo Speaker System - Black
Pros: Small, functional & cheap. I bought on sale for $7. Good enough to use in a quiet hotel room if you want to avoid headphones. Don't spend more than $10!
Cons: Sound quality is similar to transistor radio I had ~1962. Fine for audiobooks, but poor for music. Signal quality without batteries seems to vary with power level of sound source. With SanDisk e200 series, signal was broken & scratchy. With Zune, signal was adequate. Volume for both was minimal without batteries. With batteries, signal was solid, but volume still very limited.
Other Thoughts: There is a combination cover/stand made from lightweight plastic. Part of it is hinged to provide upright support in a standing position. However the hinge is merely a stip of extremely lightweight plastic. Fresh out of the box, it remains springy enough to constantly push the speakers forward, toppling them onto their face. I suspect that enough flexing through use will reduce this spring action. However, that same flexing will probably wear the plastic hinge near its breaking point.READ FULL REVIEW
