THIRD regarding AUX interference: the aux cable (included, as well as spares I have) will pick up slight interference, but this is not noticeable when the speaker's volume is not all the way up. ... So be sure, if you plan to use an aux cable to connect to a dot, that you ALSO get a USB wall power supply that is separate from the Dot's.  ...  "
