Ah. Seems they've gained a new website of their own since I got mine.

Google shopping wants to point me to images of Bluetooth speakers that are not quite the same thing...

Possible Dumb Question alert but, are those little.Geneva boxes mono or stereo?

Stereo, with a back subwoofer. Obviously the stereo image is not enormous but there’s two speakers in the front.

Been using it all day and it can handle anything I throw at it, including my latest (yet umastered) mix.

The thing packs a punch!

Ever so slightly off-topic, but I have a WiFi speaker, well, actually an Internet radio - the original Logitech Squeezebox. Mono. Batteey powered. Needs WiFi. But offers a smooth and deep listening experience that I find invaluable for listening to mixes on.
I have it streaming from Logitech Media Server running on my NAS. So I can export a mix to a folder there, then simply play it from the Logitech Squeezebox.
Best 99 Swiss francs I ever spent.

Since I started this thread, I'll reprt that I bought a KS Hive X, and it does a decent job,

In the end I purchased the Geneva Touring/xS at €79. Nice little bluetooth speaker and it ticked the boxes as I wanted a 3.5mm socket and a 'proper' volume control in a compact size.
