Aukey AudioLink Speaker, $75 with code AUKESKA6

SONOS pioneered the multi-room audio category, and now Alexa can do it too, but Aukey’s solution looks like a great, affordable alternative.

These AudioLink speakers connect to each other over a 5.8Ghz Wi-Fi connection for multi-room audio, meaning you won’t have to connect them to your home network or fiddle with a bunch of settings.

Each one features dual 10W drivers and two passive subwoofers, so they should be plenty loud. They’re also IPX5 water resistant, meaning you could probably keep one outside. The real kicker though compared to other multi-room setups? They can run off a built-in battery for over seven hours on a charge, so you can rearrange them at will if you’re throwing a party.
