Perhaps it’s just me, but it seems that this Eton brand just came out of nowhere. I have totally overlooked a lot of their products when they came out on the market, including the Rukus XL. Somebody mentioned this in an email sent to me earlier this week, asking about its portability and efficiency in the outdoors.

I have reviewed a lot of portable speakers and music players, and as you will see, this unit has some unique features, but its portability is highly effective in some cases and lacking in other departments being different from products like let’s say Sharp GX-M10.

” In summary, this is a nicely designed, easy to use and appropriately priced portable unit that allows you to provide a sound track to your outdoor activities. ” – I could’t have put it better myself.

Let’s dig in. 

Add to Cart for Price

The unit has been available (and is) for purchase since spring this year. It currently stands at a 4.4 out of 5 stars user rating, and I feel this number will go up once more people buy it and use it on their summer vacation activities.

It's been available for purchase at Amazon since March 15, 2013; and since then I see a lot of people debating its price. Some say it's worth every penny, some say it could be cheaper. I for one find the price to be just right, I don't think they could make it any cheaper and still make a profit.

When it comes to music systems and portable speakers, people tend to ask the same question: "is it loud enough?".. Yes it is! The first thing that caught my attention was the fact that this unit is really loud by any standards; making this unit perfect for large rooms and outdoor activities of any nature. The sound is delivered through 8 full-range speaker drivers (2x tweeter, 2x woofer, 4x passive radiator) that produce 22 watts of stereo sound power. And it comes with a bass boost feature, and believe it or not, when you hit that boost button, the difference is astonishing.

As I mentioned earlier this unit has its features that make it portable and unique. And the first feature that makes this unit portable is the people's favorite - Bluetooth capability. This feature allows you to stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet or computer, and control the tunes from your device. And now, the feature that really makes this unit unique and perfect for outdoor use is the Eton Rukus XL's built-in solar panel that generates the amount of power needed to play the music. The internal lithium battery will keep to party going long after the sun is out (8 hours of playtime). And thanks to the he USB port the Rukus is equipped with, you can charge your smartphone or device - making this an amazing investment for your outdoor activities. Above all, to keep your device safe while charging, the unit has its own storage compartment to secure your gadget.

Above everything I mentioned above, the unit comes with some kind of handle to easily carry it around. The Rukus XL has is sturdy and looks really great built. With all these in mind, I guess we can call it "pretty portable". And the main reason I call it that is because I have no idea how this reacts to spills, stains, bad weather and dust. But I think you can use this outdoors with no problems, just a little bit more care than other specially made, resistant portable units.

After seeing this thing satisfy a lot of users and a few pretentious buyers, I would have to say go for it! There's no reason not to check out the Eton Rukus XL if you are considering purchasing such a product. I would only advice against it if you plan on dropping and dragging it around, other than that this unit will surely fit your needs. Check the link below for current price and discounts.
