McIntosh XR200

This month, McIntosh's luxe XR200 loudspeakers are dropping into an authorized retail store near you, and they're worth a look. Dark and dangerous-looking, the speakers also have tone chops to match. They're spendy, for sure, but their amazing sound...

Audioengine 5 Speaker System

Wow. How did five years go by so quickly? We first became aware of Audioengine in early 2007, when the company asked if we'd be interested in evaluating its A5 self-powered speakers. It's now 2012, and we have the revamped A5+ self-powered speakers on...

B&W Bowers & Wilkins Group CM1WG

The B&W CM10s are like a Black Diamond ski slope: capable of bringing out the absolute best in those that go down it, but also exposing all weaknesses. Fed with high quality content they deliver great realism and detail. The saxophone on "So What"...

Wharfedale Diamond 10

That lively enclosure bothered me a little, but I suspect that the oversensitive upper-frequency array better balances the generous low frequencies. Certainly, I had been impressed by the Diamond 10.7's sound quality when I first auditioned it at the...

Sonos SUB

The Sonos SUB is a massively expensive subwoofer made to be part of the full wireless speaker family for an equally giant price: $699 right out of the box. You do get free shipping and unlimited support from Sonos, and we're to understand that there's...

Q Acoustics Q BT3 Weiß

What’s more, build quality is of the highest order and we love the funky red finish. It’s relatively pricey and not as discreet or hassle-free as a soundbar, but with sound quality this good it’s worth the inconvenience.

Klipsch's KMC 1, a $299.99 portable Bluetooth speaker, finds itself in an awkward place in the market. For less money, there are more portable options like the Bose SoundLink Mini and the JBL Pulse; for as much or more money, models with more handsome,...

Bose Cinemate 1 SR

Bose has to be different. You can't call the Cinemate 1SR a soundbar, it's a sound array. Likewise, the sub is not a sub, it's an Acoustimass module. Bose is also coy about giving out technical specifications, so I know not what the power output is of...
