My use of RV stereo equipment is not listed above. I use all recycled equipment: a 30 yr old Technics amp-preamp, a separate Panasonic receiver, and (due to space) a small set of Advent speakers.

All of this was recycled from my previous home equipment experimentations. As old and outdated as these components are, they still sound better than many current/typical home systems.

we listen to local stations in the morning while inside the trailer. sometimes we put our external speakers on when sitting outside, but only on low volume. we usually just enjoy the sounds of our natural surroundings. nothing worse than blaring music from a nearby camper.

Guess i'm the oddball but when camping I enjoy the music of a crackling fire, crickets, birds and other of mother natures creatures. Last thing I want is to do what I do at home.. and nothing better than a fellow camper stopping by and watching the colors of dancing flames .. life is good....

don't believe I've ever turned our radio on...

Just use caution when waving the lighter back and forth! Lol

Once it is dark we rarely have the radio on sitting by the fire. If we do it is usually a game we listen to: playoff hockey game- we have a long break until next season already but Go Wings!, OHL game- friends are a host family- Go Firebirds!, MI Football- Go Blue!!!, etc.

IF we have music by the fire it is usually when we are either having/cooking lunch, taking a break from whatever may be the activity of the day, etc...

As strange as it sounds, there's some places where we can't get any radio reception at all, but a halfway decent cell signal. So when the game is on and I get nothing but static, I go to the radio station's website on my smartphone and stream the audio, and send it via Bluetooth to the trailer's stereo.

I bought one of these yesterday. We like the background of the music when we are outside. Not on a high level....just enough to hear it.

JBL Flip 3 - JBL US

It sounds amazing for a portable

Home-made Stereo

I use the built-in cheapo outside speakers quietly in campgrounds, but when I go to the desert with large groups, I bring my home-made stereo:

Bose speakers
10" amplified sub-woofer
car stereo with blue-tooth
2 17AH batteries

It's heavy but sounds really good. 8 hours of music between charges.
