I already review the travel model and now I've made exchange for the one I wanted, which was the studio model, complete with AC adaptor. The travel one runs only on rechargeable batteries and is a lot smaller.

The studio is still a lot smaller than a set of speakers, and I like that under cramped conditions. It really sounds good, and once I figured out all the lines in and out on my computer, I got it to work, even with Netflix. I don't know what the rear jacks are for, one for line in, another for line out. I tried my headphones but that didn't work. I think they should have on line out.

I suppose the strangest thing about it is that whenever I turn it on to use it, the volume has dropped back to inaudible. I'll think it's not working again, and then remember to turn it up using the "+" sign on top. All my computer volume settings are at max.

After some trouble getting it to work, especially with Netflix, I'm happy with Big Blue, and compared to Bose it's not so expensive while sounding almost as good, certainly good enough for my purposes. I have an older Bose radio/Cd player if I really need that. I can't get BBC on that, however. I got this for sound from my computer. The Bluetooth is great! I didn't need yet another port, as though there were one.

All in all, a nice device, now that I have the right one. (The travel model isn't bad--for travel, not for home.)

Oh yeah, the noises it makes and that reviewers have written about. Mostly those don't bother me, though last night it let out one that about blew my brains out. Don't know what that one was for. It does make a lot of them when turning on and off, no doubt.

One thing first: I'd ask those who use Big Blue outdoors to remember that some people like quiet. Don't add to noise pollution. Big Blue can boom pretty well.

As for Big Blue, I bought the travel model first by mistake. I sent it back and got the studio model, which is the one my doctor had and which I'd heard. Turns out the travel model will do something I can't get the studio model to do: play Netflix audio. How weird is that? I just can't understand this, though still working on it. The sound is quite good on the studio model, and not bad on the travel model. I'd have kept the travel model were it not for time it takes to recharge the battery. That model has no AC adaptor.

I don't get, for either model, why the sync by way of "headphones." It's just awkward. (It shows up on my Mac as headphones.) Both models work well with radio stations, though for some, like BBC, one must have the latest Adobe Flash.

I don't keep my music on computer and I bought Big Blue because I needed an external speaker for my computer--so I'd not have to hook up headphones. (Mac's internal speaker is seriously lousy. I can't hear it.)

Maybe it's the Bluetooth, I'm not sure, but I'm not too happy that I can't get Netflix audio and that connectivity is problematic in general. I'd recommend to a friend but with reservation.

    Comments about Big Blue? Studio Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    I received this speaker as a gift from my employer for 10 years of service. Yes, the bleeping sound is irritating, but my gripe is with Bluetooth audio cutting out. I have an iPhone 6+ and no matter how close I am to the speaker the audio will randomly cut out, like there is some sort of interference.

        I use mine in my bedroom and its amazing! The sound quality is perfect and i've owned my fair safe of high end speakers. Its really easy to get started: just hold the center button down and it pairs with your device. No bluetooth, no prob, just get an aux cable. I am thinking to up grade to the party just because the party doesn't need to be plugged in. but for now, I'm happy with this one. I got the grey color and its very nice.

                  Comments about Big Blue? Studio Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

                  We put the Big Blue in our game room so the kids (and grownups) could connect their phones and listen to whatever music they wanted. The game room isn't a heavily used room, but the speaker was a good addition.

                  Until about a year later, when the thing simply flat-out quit working: No lights, no bluetooth connection, nothing.

                  Thinking it's only a year old and had (at most) 12 hour of use we returned it to Brookstone and got the bad news: You didn't by the warranty, so you're hosed. Yes, it should have lasted longer than a year, and yes we see you still have the receipt. Tough luck, can we interest you in another one? (that was the only funny part)

                  We clearly had a defective one, and Brookstone really let us down. If you buy one of these, you'd better buy the warranty and keep your receipt.

                  I'd have given this a 5 star if I could get it to turn on and off simply. You have to hold the "power" button for a while to turn on or off and sometimes you hold it forever and nothing happens. I wish they had a simple switch somewhere............
