Im looking to buy a wireless portable (mid range portable and too tiny) speaker. Which one do you guys suggest in terms of sound quality (ofcourse), pricing and latest connectivity options (Wi-Fi, NFC)?

Found three selections: Bose Soundtouch 20, Sonos Play 5 and Sony SRSX7

I have personal experience with two models: X-mini II and JBL Micro wireless. I didn't own them, but they were sold as iphone accessories where I used to work. Both are worth the money, X-mini is louder and with a little bit distorted sound/bass when at full volume, while the JBL is somewhat more cultivated and clearer.
But overall the X-mini was sold 3:1 vs the JBL. You can also chain the x-minis

Thanks. I checked them out but they are smaller than what im looking for.

The size of Bose Soundtouch 20 is fine by me. Im not looking for a pocket portable, but more like something that can sit on your pc desk or bed table without occupying much space and looking modern.But it seems the three devices i mentioned in earlier post are the only ones with all latest connectivity options. The JBL authentics L8 looks great too, but pricey. When i went shopping i saw a lot of portable speakers which i couldn't recognize so i had to come home and check online what the heck is going on in the portable speaker world. It seems most portable speakers are bluetooth ones only, and does not have Wifi, NFC, etc.

So you are ideally looking for an optionally battery powered docking station with speakers

The Libratone live also good enough as the Bose Soundtouch 20.

And then i came across the sound bar types which comes with wifi, DLNA, etc, and i wonder how is the sound performance in comparison.
