Ruark MR1

British firm Ruark created the Ruark MR1 speakers as an entry point for those who want better sounding music, but aren't prepared to dish out lots of cash. Have they achieved that goal, or can you achieve the same for less?

Monitor Audio is a revered name in audio circles but if you're yet to sample its wares then this newly-buffed Silver series is a superb starting place. Sandwiched between the Gold and Bronze ranges, it marks the point where you start getting a proper...

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...

Whether you’re a DJ, a budding sound engineer, or just a music lover, JBL’s LSR305 are gorgeous pair of monitors that offer premium performance on a big-box store budget. While there’s plenty of hype around their waveguide technology, we think it’s...

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"...

Audio Pro Allroom AIR ONE

When you add up all the pluses and minuses, for me, the Audio Pro Allroom Air One doesn't quite earn the white gloves that it didn't really need in the first place, mostly due to its uneven frequency response. Again, though, the boosts in upper-mid and...

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...

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.

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...

The KEF V700 and V720W soundbars are among the thinnest units on the market, but certainly not the least expensive at $799 and $999. Read on for our impressions.

Maxell MXSP-SB3000

Up close it looks a bit like an MDF project your dad knocked together in the 1980s but, given the price tag, Maxell's MXSP-SB3000 has an awful lot going for it in terms of its spec. Its size and strength mean it will accommodate huge TVs up to 80kg in...
