This is my third HK Onyx Speaker. The sound is fantastic, especially the bass. The speaker gets plenty loud as well. It can fill a room with nice volume and good clean bass. It also looks neat, not bulky at all. It sits unobtrusively on a counter or shelf. Pairing it to various bluetooth devices was very simple too. I can't say enough about the speaker and if/when I find another spot for one, I will not hesitate to buy yet another one.
