BOSE Solo 15 Series II

The Solo 15 offers a straightforward way of improving your telly’s sound, plus a level of refinement you won’t find in cheaper units costing less than, say, £250. We wouldn’t expect the subtleties found even further up the ladder but, even at this...

Klipsch R-20B

When it comes to clarifying the details and adding a theatrical flair to movies or music, Klipsch’s R20-B is no slouch. But for $800, you should get a moonroof and a spoiler, not vinyl seats and a tape deck. The R20-B aims to wow with performance, and...

Raumfeld Stereo L

German brand Raumfeld specialises in Wi-Fi speaker systems that stream music in high resolution (up to 192kHz/24-bit). It isn't a household name in the UK but after hearing the company's Stereo Cubes in action we think it deserves to be – with slick...

Yamaha YSP-1400

Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.

Creative MUVO Mini

The Creative Muvo Mini contains every desirable feature you seek out in a Bluetooth speaker: full sound, attractive design, long battery life – and the cherry on top, weatherproofing. For under 100 bucks, that's an unbeatable deal.

JBL Clip

Expectations for audio excellence should be checked at the door when shopping for small, inexpensive Bluetooth speakers. The $49.95 JBL Clip subverts those checked expectations with surprisingly good audio performance that rarely distorts (and even...

Samsung HW-J650

The HW-J650 is an outstanding bar for the burgeoning audio enthusiast. Packing walloping bass and a handful of adjustment options, it's a solid soundbar by any measurement. Too bad a distinct echo and a lack of ports keep it from being pitch perfect.

Wavemaster TWO BT

These are quality loudspeakers. Excellent room filling sound, plenty of bass and very good stereo imaging. May not be top quality Hi-Fi but then would my 55 year old ears notice a difference? I would recommend these speakers without hesitation.

Libratone LOOP

The Libratone Loop is an attractive-looking AirPlay speaker, but at $500 it needs to do more than just look pretty, and it just doesn't sound as good as it should.

Sony HT-RT5

But those extensive features don’t make up for that disappointing performance. Despite Sony’s intentions, the HT-RT5’s thin, hard sound isn’t exciting or engaging, and those rear speakers fail to deliver on the promise of true surround sound. They also...

Logitech UE Mini Boom

While it doesn't do that much to stand out from the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers in the $60-$100 range, the well-built and decent sounding (for its size) UE Mini Boom is a pretty safe choice for those looking for a very compact wireless speaker.

Denon HEOS 3

With app inconsistencies, a lack of Mac compatibility, and audio performance that fails to rise above the crowd, Denon’s Heos multi-room speaker system was at best underwhelming, and at worst, downright annoying. Even if big bass is your pleasure, the...

Harman Kardon Esquire Mini

The Harman Kardon Esquire Mini is a great-looking micro Bluetooth speaker that works quite well as a speakerphone, but is bass-challenged, so it isn't much of a music speaker.
