Mid-range tabletop Bluetooth speaker recs?
This seems like a frivolous question amid discussions of Elacs and Triads, but the Marshall Kilburn that I've had as a bedside speaker for the last few years got fried in a lightning storm, and (in addition to adding a surge protector to the outlet) I'm trying to figure out what to replace it with. The newer, larger Stanmore II is on sale at $199 for Black Friday and reviewers seem to like it generally, but the footprint is a bit bigger than I'd like and I worry that the things I didn't love about the Kilburn (slightly boomy bass, less precision than I'd hoped) could be worse with what's essentially a larger version of the same. Also considering a Peachtree deepblue2 refurb, which Peachtree is selling directly (with a warranty) on eBay, at $249; people seem to love the sound, but it's even bigger than the Stanmore, and uglier. The dark horse option is the Audio Pro Addon c10, which WhatHiFi loves, is a touch smaller than the others, and supports Airplay 2, meaning lossless streaming, unlike the deeplblue2 (I'm streaming from an iPhone Xs, so the deepblue2's AptX support does me no good), but at $349.
Any thoughts on choosing between these three? Any others that people recommend? I'd like to stay away from anything with built-in Alexa due to privacy concerns (Siri on my phone bothers me less, as I'm pretty sure that when the machines come for us, they, like the 1990s, won't be compatible with Apple products).
