Whatever you get has to have great dynamic range. Just think of the Logical Song with that awesome base intro ba-da-da dumpa-dum-dum...and then the "who I ammm" outro that hits the stratosphere. Great song. And the speakers have to be good enough to make the itune sound like, er vinyl or at least as close as possible! :)

I ended up going with the Logitech Wireless Boombox -- only around $100 -- the sound is GREAT -- I am very happy with my purchase

Although it requires a power cord, a Sonos Play3 or Play5 would produce better sound than some cheap dock. At $300 and $400 each it is not necessarily that cheap but the lossless audio over Wi-fi helps and it is easy to carry from place to place. It does use it's own dedicated network so the $50 WAP from them is needed or you can plug in the speaker to a wired network connection. Any audio on the network is accesible with an app for remote control via phone or tablet. No audio dropouts provided a decent enough RF coverage is available. You can add devices to your hearts content. And no I don't work for them but know someone who has tested their stuff.

I've got an Apple TV and -- as you say -- it is very slick (check pout my blog about streaming videos through a "Henry" http://bit.ly/xFUK0U ) It's great for watching videos and boring a bunch of people with your holiday photos (grin), but not so good when you want to play music on the back deck...

Wifi would probably be a better connection technology. Playback using AirPlay. I don't have a set, so no recommendation. The alternative (though not portable) is AppleTV, it's very slick.

When I say the "Supertramp" album, I mean the 1970 album by Supertramp (the group) where the album itself was called "Supertramp"

"Nothing but a Dreamer" ... good one. More like track 7 of the "Supertramp" album I saw them play "Crime of the Century" live in London -- incredible...

I'm just hoping your quest won't be summed up by track 5 of Crime of the Century... ;-)
