Sol Republic PUNK

It's all about making a statement with this one! The SOL Republic PUNK is certainly unorthodox looking, just like the company's line of headphones, seeing that this square puck shaped thing doesn't really jump out as being a speaker right from the...

Sony HT-ST7

For all the things we associate Sony with for home theater, speakers are lower down on that list. Many people scoffed when they decided to introduce a $27,000 pair of speakers, the SS-AR1, but response to them has been phenomenal. They've followed that...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 is the smaller of the company's two new wireless speakers. It's not quite as stellar a performer as the larger Minx Air 200, though; not just because of the smaller size, but because the $449 (direct) Minx 100 makes a...

Pioneer SBX-N500

Most soundbars are focused on sound quality, but Pioneer's SBX-N500 is a little more ambitious. Yes, it packs 140W of muscle for beefing up movies, but it's also blessed with the sort of multimedia and networking talents that put some full-sized...

SKULLCANDY Air Raid Portable Speaker 038354896, Black (038354896)

Skullcandy is known for its headphones and earphones that are as much cool-kid fashion statements as they are audio gear. Thus far, speakers have been more or less off the radar, but with the Bluetooth audio streaming Skullcandy Air Raid ($149.99...

Dayton Audio B452 4-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair

While Dayton Audio's entry-level B452 bookshelf speaker's sound won't seduce too many audiophiles, it's remarkably satisfying for a speaker in its ultrabargain price class.

Yamaha YAS-103

Honestly, we like the YAS-103 as a sound bar solution rather than a surround sound bar. With wide placement of the full range front drivers and downfiring woofers for additional bass, the YAS-103 should present a fairly wide soundstage and large (as...

Polk Audio MagniFi AM8111-A

Polk's sound bar is unique in that it has discrete left, right, and center channels, but it doesn't support HDMI and it's audio performance wasn't as good as several of its similarly priced competitors.

Logitech Z600 Bluetooth

Desktop speakers are in an awkward position these days. Either bundled with your computer or often available for less than $100, they're an easy purchase when you need sound on your desktop. Logitech is going further, though, by making a set of desktop...

LG NB4540

Dazzling looks, decent features and crisp, detailed sound quality make LG’s soundbar system a cracking purchase, even though some rivals offer a slightly more polished performance.

Bose Solo TV Sound System

Its 3" height affords a slim, low-profile silhouette that blends in with most TV sets. However, a width and depth of 20.75" x 12.25" means the TV has to be placed on top of the soundbar. This restricts the maximum size of the TV set to 42", and you're...

Panasonic SC-HTE80

With a footprint of 46 x 28cm the Panasonic SC-HTE80 looks (colour differences aside) like a slightly shrunken version of the Canton DM 50, with largely unadorned surfaces and a dot matrix display hidden behind the cheese-grater grille across the...

Tivoli Audio Albergo

Albergo is Italian for hotel. It's a fitting name for the $249.99 Tivoli Audio Albergo Clock Radio with Bluetooth, as the last time I saw a Tivoli radio, it was at a hip new hotel in the Catskills. And just like the rest of Tivoli's products, the...

Yamaha YAS-152

Yamaha delivers a one-box soundbar solution for 55-inch-and-larger HDTVs with solid connectivity options, but sound quality suffers in the bargain.

Bowers & Wilkins 683 S2 weiß (Stück)

The 600 Series has been part of B&W's speaker lineup for many years now, offering movie fans a first step on the brand's floorstanding ladder below the CM Series and the 800 Series Diamond. In that regard it could be classed as 'entry-level', if it...
