DEVIALET Silver Phantom

The Devialet Silver Phantom sounds fantastic, which is what you'd hope to hear about a $2,400 speaker. But considering that many wireless speakers can operate in either stereo or mono when used as a single unit, it's hard to see why Devialet didn't opt...

Cambridge Audio TV2

While the soundbar/speaker-base space is maddeningly crowded and difficult to navigate, I like what Cambridge has done in terms of performance, design, and pricing. As stated earlier, the task of this type of product is to move you away from the...

Bose SoundLink Mini

The SoundLink Mini's lack of speakerphone capabilities may deter some, and others will gripe about the lack of onboard controls or the device's ability to charge via USB. However, nothing approaches the SoundLink Mini's sonic versatility and full, rich...

Focal Dimension

If you like the idea of a soundbar in theory, but hate how so many come loaded with surround effects or over-active DSP, the Focal Dimension is a refreshing departure. The trade-off is wireless connectivity not being integrated fully, and a reliance on...

Hercules WAE Outdoor 04Plus

I was pleasantly surprised by the little speaker with the odd shape and feather light chassis. The sound is great for a little speaker that can go anywhere with you and put up with plenty of abuse. If you’re the outdoor type you should consider this...

Creative Sound Blaster ROAR 2

The best way to look at the Roar 2 is to simply consider it the same as the original Roar, albeit looking better after dieting for a few months. (Maybe it should have been called Roar 1.5?) Some cosmetic changes give it a slight makeover, but it’s...
