Not able to bring mains power with me to interesting locations, I was wondering what people would suggest for portable, battery-powered speakers/monitors for playback while worldizing in the field, and which models offer a reasonable frequency response (as I’m sure that tradeoffs will be occurring in looking for luggable units).
A good tiny portable speaker might be the Soundbucket from highend UK manufacturer Crookwood. Some location recordist here might already know their great Paintpot preamps. They also do marvelous mastering consoles.
I haven’t been able to try it yet but it seems worth a listen ! I wouldn’t use it for IR recordings though.
But apparently they can go loud without compressing too much the signal.
