The best affordable party-starters
Fender Newport £190 / stuff.tv/newport
For some, there’ll be no beating the charm and name-recognition of Fender’s portable speaker. The Newport looks and acts like a mini guitar amp, complete with witch-hat knobs on top for volume, bass and treble.
Every second of using this tiny slice of rock’n’roll is delightful. Flick the switch to turn it on and you’re met with the rich roar of an electric guitar; put it into Bluetooth pairing mode and a different riff plays. It’s the little things that make this speaker so much fun.
With 12hr battery life and aptx Bluetooth for Cd-quality streaming, it’ll find a place in any home.
