    "the greatest and most stylish speaker under $500 Before purchasing I looked through YouTube reviews and found someone who did a sound test with some machine that measures sound and found that this one and the JBL authentics 300 sound exactly the same. ...While this smaller speaker in the Authentics line (about 10“x6“x7“) does not support Dolby Atmos, like the bigger Authentics 500 does, it still provides a powerful audio experience.
