Overland Posted January 6, 2017 Share Posted January 6, 2017 We aren't doing a TV, and don't need a radio, DVD, or any of that, so as far as music goes we're really only interested in connecting an iPhone or iPad to the speakers, either through the standard unit or perhaps some other method. It seems a bit silly to have a full stereo if all we want is a speaker connection. One of the things that I'm considering is just eliminating the stereo and speakers entirely, and instead putting the money into a nice portable airplay compatible speaker like the B&W T7 or maybe a pair of the small Sonos speakers. That would allow us to have music outside if we wanted, and we could use it around the house as well I suppose. Another possibility is that I've got a nice Tivoli radio that I never use. It will work on a standard 12v 3amp plug, so I could just set it on the nightstand. It would look nice and I could ask Oliver to run the FM and a Sirius antenna for me. I'never been over the top on the sound quality but it does look great sitting on the desk. Curious what people's thoughts are on any of that. What is the consensus on the speakers that come with the Ollie? Has anyone tried the portable speakers or have an opinion on them? That seems like the most versatile option, imo. By the way, Jason said we might be able to do a wired set of exterior speakers, mounted under the awning, if we wanted. They've been thinking about it for a while but no one had asked until us. The problem with that is that I'd be scared that I'd forget about them and end up broadcasting my music to the entire campsite. Plus they'd look like two barnacles on the side of the trailer and if we didn't like the sound quality, we'd be stuck with them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
