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.

Sonos PLAY:5 / ZonePlayer S5

Several hours of critical listening left our ears feeling a bit fatigued—an issue we didn’t encounter with B&W’s Zeppelin (not entirely an apples-to-oranges comparison, since the Zeppelin is a non-networked iPod dock), but the S5 was a huge hit when we...

Panasonic SC-BTT505

With their cost-cutting designs and compromised performance, all-in-one systems are usually seen as the poor relation of separates. But every once in a while a one-box system comes along that more discerning listeners can get on board with. The...

TDKTrek Max A34

Weatherproof, robust, and loud as a jet turbine, TDK’s new TREK Max A34 makes a strong case to be your next Bluetooth buddy. We wish the speaker had more juice (and wasn’t so damned heavy), but solid performance and functionality make TDK’s A34 a great...

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...
