A couple of weeks ago we uploaded a review of the latest portable Bluetooth speaker by Ultimate Ears called the BOOM which although very good still was far from perfect and thus our quest for the best portable speaker didn’t stop there. What followed however had little to do with the review and much to do with our readers since many of you asked about what we’re looking for in a portable wireless speaker that all the models we’ve tested so far were obviously unable to deliver. Well the answer is really easy so aside a very good build quality we’re also looking for a well-designed portable wireless speaker with excellent audio reproduction, powerful volume levels and plenty of features. Unfortunately with the exception of just a couple of models such as the TDK A73 Boombox and the Creative Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 (both very good but still not flawless) all others fell short in at least one of the above categories. With the brand new Sound Blaster ROAR SR20A Bluetooth Portable Speaker Creative seeks to win the hearts of audiophiles and regular consumers alike but is it capable of doing so?
