    Versatile and unique in what it can do

    I'm giving this 5 stars because it fits my unique needs perfectly, and has several extra features I don't use now but may later. I needed a bluetooth speaker that wasn't just loud, but would also move enough air so my playing along on acoustic or electric guitar would blend with and not overpower the backing music. I also hoped to patch my electric guitar directly into the unit and still play along without using my regular amp. As it turns out, either of the two Microphone inputs work perfectly for this, though I run through a portable amp-simulator unit first to color the guitar tone more like a real guitar amp would. Outside of that, I've used this for outdoor parties at home and even when not blasting it has the kind of coverage and frequency range that smaller bluetooth speakers just don't have. To be fair, this doesn't produce even close to audiophile quality, and I'm a little disappointed that its EQ capabilities are nearly futile (about 10 Presets with no meaningful variation) and can only be accessed via the remote. If they just had Bass, Middle and Treble it would be a huge improvement, but for my casual purposes I can overlook its sonic mediocrity thanks to its other advantages. For me it's no problem that it only runs on AC-power and is heavy to carry, and even though I won't use all the possible input sources, I do like that it can play FM radio, CDs, USB memory stick files, and anything you plug into its rear-mounted stereo RCA inputs. It even has rear-mounted RCA line-level outputs, which is very rare for any kind of audio device in this niche. I've had blast all summer playing guitar to music outside on my deck, and I never found any other all-in-one unit that would've let me do that so easily.

    Great for price point

    I purchased this unit because I wanted a powered speaker with RCA inputs to run a turntable without a receiver, as I had streamlined my home audio set-up and wanted something sleek and simple. This fit the bill perfectly. Super easy to set up and serves my intended purpose. Not well-suited for the audiophiles out there, but I think given the specs and price point that is a given. But for the casual listener or someone who wants a quick/easy configuration, this is great. I found the default light display a bit annoying, but you can disable that easily enough with the remote. Ditto for the auto-sleep setting, which I saw some previous complaints about. You’ll definitely want to turn that off, unless you enjoy pressing the power button every ten minutes to resume play. Overall, for the price and ease of set-up/general use, I would definitely recommend this product. I only shaved off a star because the sound quality is not fantastic (but it’s certainly not terrible either).

    Great Features and price but sound is fuzzy.

    I was looking for a portable cd player with good quality sound, so I could play my compositions for various small audiences. The Sony PA/DJ unit is a knockout for price and amazing variety of features, but it is not so good on quality of vocal sound. Music plays well and the available mods are handy if you want some kind of distortion, and the bass and volume are adequate, but voices such as radio commentary or non-professional speech are quite difficult to make out. The compression and noise in the sound of voices is distracting on radio play and on cd play. I have not tried the MP3 much, but it is not better. I am happy this unit will do my project somewhat, but I wanted more quality. However, if your goal is to provide DJ for a small party, this is just the ticket! Now, where can I find what I was really looking for? Oh, yeah, I have no trouble lugging this, but some people might not find it so easy. It has a grab niche, but only one, so it can't be grabbed on two sides with two hands.

    Seeking yard filling sound, karaoke and bluetooth connectivity, I initially was looking to purchase the ION Tailgaiter wireless speaker which was on sale for $99. For $50 more the Sony V-11 offered a second microphone port, MP3 capable CD player and more powerful sound - but I gave up the luxury of a rechargeable battery and simple portability. At the end of the day, I'm ok with my choice. The V-11 has met my expectations. The only issue I've had, and I have yet to look into it, was the USB connection is not recognizing my iPad or iPhone (though it is charging them). I am using a mini-USB to lighting adaptor that may not be configured for data transfer, so that may be on me. Sound is GREAT! Bass is powerful and, at about half the volume, easily fills the yard with sound. Actually, it's too loud at 50%. The karaoke options are fun, allowing you to somewhat drown out the vocals on many original tunes. Bluetooth is Karaoke's best friend and the mic options are what you would need and expect from a solid karaoke machine. Overall, a very good purchase that I would recommend.

    Just OK

    I was afraid it might be too loud because of a reviewer saying they returned it for that reason but it's actually not that loud for the size. My neighbors can't hear it when I play music vol 21 in the morning.The pros are the multifonction but I don't use them all. It's compact and doesn't take too much space. The cons: it turns off when you're not playing music continuously, which is really annoying. You need to turn it back on every 10 mn, and to connect it to your mobile device again. I don't know why it can't just stay on as long as you pressed the ON button once ! The led light is always on, even when it goes to sleep mode. The sound is not exceptional, just a lot of bass. Some little bluetooth speakers can provide a better sound quality. It was on sale so a good deal but at full price I wouldn't purchase it.

    Everything We Need

    We bought this unit to use indoors and outside while on vacation. It is light enough to carry, and has a notch for easy portability, which we appreciate. We use it with radio, Pandora, our MP3's, and CD's. The instructions are a bit lacking so we had to call Sony to find out how to use our MP3 players with all the usual features. (will play on USB but you can't choose your songs or play on shuffle). Sony got back to us quickly, told us which cable we would need, and how to hook it up. Now it does everything we need. As far as sound it is better than an average boombox but not as good as a stereo sound system. It would be better if it could play on battery power, you must be where you can plug it in. Still perfect for our needs.

    Disappointed in Sony

    Well today I went to purchase this Sony Speaker because I read great reviews and a family member has one and couldn't stop talking about it and I wanted something to have for outdoor events, well it never got to see the backyard because I turned it on and it worked great and sound was amazing. Then I take one step away from it with my phone and the bluetooth connection is lost, I then went back a step and it connected again. Now I'm no expert but I have an old ihome bluetooth speaker and the rage is 30ft, I would think it would be the same for a $250.00 speaker but I guess I was wrong, taking it back tomorrow and getting the LG product that I really wanted and would have gotten but the sales person insisted that this was the best one. Thank God I didn't wait til memorial day when we have our bbq with family I would have been even more upset, 1st time I get a bad product from best buy and Sony, hope this doesn't happen again.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I bought this to replace an Ion portable speaker because the rechargeable battery no longer worked. I liked the idea of the Sony because it can play cds and had a remote. I'm not crazy about the speaker light, it just constantly blinks regardless if the music is playing or not, I read all of the instructions but the light does not seem to work as intended. The remote is ok but you need to be fairly close (12 feet) to the speaker to get it to respond. All in all I think it is a high price BUT it does sound better than a lot of other speakers I listened to so that is worth something. Out of the other choices on the shelf I would recommend it to a friend but with warning of it's flaws.
