Bose Wave

The HLX-56S is an all-in-one home cinema system cast in the shape of a soundbar. With integrated Blu-ray player, digital amplifier, net portal and media streamer, it's pretty much all you need for instant AV gratification.

SIMPLE AUDIO Roomplayer 1

Until now, the default option for anyone wanting a relatively affordable 'plug and play' multiroom set-up has tended to be Sonos. That system has focused on being more of a lifestyle experience, with its intuitive interface and Spotify, Napster and...

Pure 200I AIR

Pure's Contour 200i Air is a well-designed, well-constructed wireless speaker. AirPlay is seamless and docking works just as well. We wish it had digital (or analog) radio to give it a little more versatility, but as wireless speakers go this is a good...

Logitech Squeezebox Radio

Denon DM-39DAB
