Amazon has the Sony for $98 right now. White or black. I went to Target and listened to the Bose soundlink mini and sound link II and I thought the BTX300 was much better .It was the only BT speaker on display that didn't distort and rattle when the bass guitar would kick in on my Sublime tracks. I was dead set on buying the Bose but was highly disappointed in the sound. Perhaps the mini Target had was a defect because the reviews are excellent. As with any speaker, go listen for yourself.
