Yamaha YAS-101

Yamaha's YAS-101 soundbar ($299.95 list) delivers plenty of punch for a single-piece home theater audio system. It saves space by including the subwoofer—really, a bass module, as you're not going to get subterranean frequencies out of a thin...

Edifier iF335BT

Most portable Bluetooth speakers in the $100 price range are small, with a focus on internal, rechargeable batteries and tote-bag-friendly dimensions. The Edifier Bric Connect iF335BT ($99.95) laughs in the face of these guys. It's comparatively large...

Onkyo LS-B50

The "soundbar" business must be booming, or at least manufacturers are banking on it doing so, as just about everyone has come out with one if not several offerings. The gambit seems logical: jam a bunch of audio transducers into an enclosure which...

Loewe Airspeaker

It’s hard to find a true weak spot in the Loewe Air Speaker, which tackles music with aplomb and – as long as you’re happy to use iOS devices and iTunes – works with a simplicity that’s totally addictive.

Carbon Audio ZUS2BK

You shouldn't realistically expect an under-$100 wireless speaker to sound magnificent, but it's fair to hope for clean, undistorted audio (even at top volumes) and a well-designed product. Carbon Audio's Zooka ($99.95 direct) is a victory of...

Braven BZ570BBP

It's tough to stand out from other Bluetooth speakers in the $100 price range, where the quality often seems modest and comparable speaker to speaker. The Braven 570, which is $99.99 (direct), doesn't emerge as a clear winner, but it also does nothing...

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...

EBS Drome 12

I used to have a Nemesis NS410 combo amp but I needed something smaller, so after a little research I went for the Drome. The combo amp has incredibly well-thought features you don't see with other manufacturers. With the use of the phantom power...

JBL Jembe Desktop Speaker

The JBL Jembes are good-looking, compact speakers that take seconds to set up and don’t dictate what device you use them with: anything with a 3.5mm audio out is fine. We’d prefer longer cables or the convenience of the Bluetooth model, but have no...

Bowers & Wilkins Z2 review: AirPlay speaker and iPhone dock

The B&W Zeppelin retailed for $600 when it was released. That was a hard pill for people to swallow. But the new Z2 is coming out with a much more affordable $400 price tag. While it certainly isn't an impulse buy, the Z2 is much more in reach for most...

JBL Loft 20

I bought this speaker for my bedroom. It has good quality and sounds awesome. I get very good clear voices when watching a move in surround sound. Very crisp and clear. I'd recommend buying it if you are looking for a good center speaker.
