I cannot decide whether to put the radio in the kitchen or in the bath/shower area. I am leaning toward the latter because I like good music while I am getting ready for work. But, I am wondering whether the humidity of the bath area would have a bad effect on the radio. The area is vented with a fan but it does get somewhat humid in there. Would that hurt the radio at all? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Well the beauty is its portable if you spring for the battery/remote accessory kit, so use it in both or everywhere for that matter.

As for the bathroom, the Radio should not be exposed to liquid water goes without saying. It is also not useable in condensing water vapor environment either. So the humid issue would fall back to whether the humidity or steam can condense in or on the unit. Another issue is how much and how often the Radio would be exposed to steam, heavy humidity, or moisture that might start affecting the drivers. Other the that, if those issue don't crop up, I think one would be OK. If one has drip runs on ones mirror after taking a shower, I say keep it in another room or watch the Radio very closely for signs of moisture.

I use my Boom in the bathroom and have been doing so for over a year without issue. We have both an exhaust fan as well as a ceiling fan in the bath so it doesn't get to steamy in there.
