I’ve yet to come across a pair of small portable speakers that don’t sound like small speakers. But this set from Kinyo at least makes up for it with some great added functionality. It can of course connect to an iPod, Zune, CD player or pretty much anything with a headphone jack but it also includes a built-in USB port for directly connecting a USB flash drive.
It currently supports MP3, WAV and WMA audio files and might even allow for just a bit more sound quality since it’s a direct digital connection to the music files. The Kinyo player has 2 watts of total power output and you can choose from 6 different equalizer settings including normal, jazz, rock, classical, hip-hop and blues. It’s powered by 4 AAA batteries or an included AC adapter.
It looks like Newegg.com is currently carrying the speakers for $39.99.
