Cyrus Lyric 09

It sits somewhere between traditional hi-fi and smart streamer, but the Lyric 09 sounds so good it hardly matters

Naim Audio ND5 XS Network Player

Its ability to cope with 24-bit/192kHz streams future-proofs it for some considerable time and allows the lovers of hi-res to pursue their studio-master fix. The n-Stream app adds all the convenience to the package for which one could ask. In an...

Bose SoundTouch 30

The SoundTouch 30 will deliver punchy audio to any sized room, whether it plays a role in a larger speaker network or it is used as a primary sound system. The ability to pair multiple systems together makes the SoundTouch a worthy adversary to Sonos’...

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...

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...

Bose Wave music system III

Say what you want about Bose, but they've had almost a 20 year legacy of virtually no competition for selling a $500 clock CD/radio system. It takes really knowing your customer base to pull off such a feat as successfully as they have.

I bought this product for half a year and it worked exactly 4 months and then died. Since then I still struggled with Bose Service from Romania to repair the unit, but it seems like they have no idea what the problem is. Theoretically they were very...

Samsung R3 Wireless 360° / WAM3500

This speaker works great with WiFi, Bluetooth and Tv (Samsung) connect. Connectivity and speaker sound is excellent. Tried other Bluetooth and WiFi speakers and they don't compare for the price. Great Wakeup Alarm feature too.

I could probably just write one word to sum it up. Brilliant! However, to justify this comment I will mention a few details: 1) Compact form which does not compromise on quality. Looks - and is - well made with features which you will actually use. 2)...
