Sonos Play: 3

At 300 bucks, the Play:3 is the most affordable path into Sonos’ multi-room systems. If AirPlay isn’t quite enough, Sonos’ pricey entry-level wireless speaker might be music to your ears.

Samsung Shape M3 (WAM350/351)

Samsung’s multi-talented multiroom speaker makes a mockery of its price tag with a packed feature list, a slick smartphone app and fabulous sound quality. Wireless audio has never been so simple.

Panasonic SC-BTT590

All-in-one systems are usually designed for maximum convenience and minimum cost, often with scant regard for sound quality. But Panasonic's new-for-2012 SC-BTT590 is a different kettle of fish – a one-box Blu-ray system that puts the emphasis on...
