Orbitsound SB60 Airsound BASE

Get used to the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base and you’ll quickly forget just how bad standard TV audio so often is. For the price the SB60 delivers plenty of audio thump and the adjustable EQ and built-in down-firing sub see that quality remains high.

LUXA2 Groovy

The Luxa2 Groovy W has poor sound quality. The combination of lo-fi Class D amplifier and low-grade Bluetooth hamper any decent audio quality from this unremarkable speaker. In our tests it had a tiresome sound when tasked with playing music but it may...

Jamo D 600 SUR

This control panel sounds funky, but feels oddly old-fashioned with its green lights and cumbersome operation. In fact the subs as a whole are a little underwhelming - they're big, ugly and at 32kg a piece, very heavy. Lucky they're meant to be hidden...

Sonos 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...

Bowers&Wilkins MM-1

We’d like to tell you that the MM-1 is comparably priced to speaker systems made by the likes of Logitech, Altec Lansing, or even Klipsch, but 500 clams puts it at the opposite end of the spectrum. If you’re as passionate about audio quality as you are...

Yamaha HS 50M

I also briefly worked with the HS80M, big brother to the HS50M reviewed here. The HS80M produced significantly more bass and low mids compared to the HS50M, but both models had essentially the same bright top end. The HS50M produced better imaging,...
