    - signal thru AUX IN must be with zero or unnoticeable latency
    - not so strong DSP processing which causes effect like compressor/limiter at high volume
    - internal battery or AA cells
    - neutral sound

    What I've tried:
    - SL-1000S - Aliexpress, high latency
    - Bose Soundlink Mini I - high latency and not enough middle frequencies
    - Sony SRS-XB3 - latency is OK, too much midrange
    - Denon Envaya Mini - latency is OK, but DSP causes clipping, good sound
    - JBL Charge2 - latency is OK, but boomy basses and not enough middle frequencies
    - JBL Flip 3 - similar to Envaya Mini
    - Marshall Kilburn - latency is OK, sounds very good
    - IK Multimedia iLoud - latency is OK, sounds very good
    - Sony SRS-XB30 - latency is OK, loud enough for practicing, but strong DSP processing sometime causes equalization changes during playing (the sound becomes thinner)
    - Bose Revolve - high latency even with 1.50 firmware
    - UE Roll 2 - noticeable latency
    - DOSS Soundbox Color - latency is OK, but less bass frequencies
    - Creative Roar2 - latency is OK, loud enough for practicing, my piece had a problem with rattling on A string (C#)
    - Harman Kardon Onyx Studio Mini - noticeable latency
    - Lamax Beat Sentinel SE-1 - latency is OK, not loud enough for playing
    - Lamax Beat Street ST-1 - latency is OK, average sound, drop volume to zero when you unplug and plug jack into the AUX
    - Lamax Sounder SO-1 - latency is OK, very powerful, average sound

    Anyone has a positive or negative experience with other bluetooth speaker?

    Thank you for your answers.

    I know this thread is pretty old but I'm having the same need, and so might others.

    You could try these speakers:
    - Bang & Olufsen Beolit 17 - Quite expensive ($500) but apparently the sound is amazing. It does have an aux in line and reviews say no lag.
    - Denon Envaya 250 BT - I know you tried the mini but this is a bigger version so might fit your needs
    - UE MegaBoom - Apparently they fixed their latency issues with June 2018's firmware: https://community.logitech.com/s/qu...e-boom-2mageboom-delay-issue-catch-all-thread

    I'm interested in reviews for these speakers, especially about the latency part.
