[Update: Now $47.99] Deal alert: Nyne Adventure Bluetooth Speaker is $55.99 at Best Buy ($94 off)

Tiny Bluetooth speakers are almost literally a dime a dozen these days, but high-quality larger units can be harder to track down. Nyne, in addition to having a 3/4 of a pretty rad name, makes a wide selection of contemporary Bluetooth boombox replacements. And today the "splash-proof" 40W Nyne Adventure is just $55.99 at Best Buy, in stark contrast to the $149 price at the OEM's site

[Deal Alert] Google Home Mini 3-pack only $80 at Costco ($20 off)

The Google Home Mini is probably the best value smart speaker you can buy. Not only do you get a fully-fledged Assistant experience, but you get okay sound out of it, too. Last Christmas, they went on sale for $30 each, which basically made them an impulse buy. Costco has had a 3-pack for a while now, which dipped down to $100 not too long ago (which was already a great deal). Now, you can pick up this bundle for a measly $80, almost half of what you would spend to buy three Home Minis separately at their $49 MSRP.

Sony LF-S50G review: Novelty features don't redeem this expensive Google Assistant speaker

In the personal assistance arms race, the two real options for Android users are Google's Assistant and Amazon's Alexa, and both companies have realized that victory will require ubiquity—not as the final result, but as the means. To that end, each has opened its platform up for third-party hardware, and Sony's (un)imaginatively named LF-S50G takes advantage of Google's Assistant in the same way the first party Google Home does, seasoned with a few unique features like gesture controls and a clock.

At around $200, though, I don't think Sony's speaker is worth the extra cash for most people over the $130 Google Home, unless you have particular requirements.

Etón Air4 is an expensive $499+ speaker with Chromecast and Apple Airplay

Etón is not a brand I'm familiar with and a quick look through the company's current products and Wikipedia page doesn't reveal too much aside from the fact that its products are aimed toward outdoor use and emergency preparedness. However, its new Air4 speaker is a very striking departure from all of that. It's a high-quality indoor speaker with a price that oscillates between $499 and $599 depending on where you look and it supports streaming through both Chromecast and Apple Airplay. (Note: Eton calls it Google Cast, but Google phased the name out in favor of Chromecast a long time ago.)

The Air4 is an 80W speaker with two 10 x 15.2cm woofers and built-in 25mm tweeters.
