Roland JC-01 Jazz Chorus Bluetooth Speaker

For fans of Roland’s super-loud, squeaky-clean line of Jazz Chorus amps, this new wireless Bluetooth speaker will be a must-have before it’s even turned on. (Let’s put it another way: Even as a paperweight, it’s pretty neat.) But the crossover extends to sound as well: This rechargeable-battery-operated gem includes real three-band EQ, a high-def sound field and a built-in mic that facilitates hands-free talking. $199 online. rolandus.com
