[bookport] Re: External speaker for use with the Bookport

I have seen those here locally at Target and Wal-Mart and have often
wondered what they sound like.  Do they actually get any kind of bass at =
all
out of those speakers, or is it pretty much a flat sound?  It's a great =
idea
if they actually sound any good.

Best regards,

In Australia, not sure about elsewhere, TDK have a fantastic combo CD
carrier, which holds about ten CDS, and speaker.  It runs on two =
double-A
batteries, and can hole the bookport, when zipped closed.  Sound clarity =
is
excellent.

They have mono and stereo models, but the mono one is ideal and half the
size of the stereo one.

Battery life seems great, they use some new membrane speaker technology.

Music/CD stores are the main places that stock these locally.

I'm assuming these speakers need a power source.  How long do they run =
on
batteries?  also, are there some people know of which can be plugged in.
