Sonos ZonePlayer S5

Several hours of critical listening left our ears feeling a bit fatigued—an issue we didn’t encounter with B&W’s Zeppelin (not entirely an apples-to-oranges comparison, since the Zeppelin is a non-networked iPod dock), but the S5 was a huge hit when we...

LG NB3520A

The LG NB3520A 2.1-channel soundbar at just under $300 is yet another example of not having to spend a lot in order to get a lot. While it isn't about to replace a dedicated home theater system any time soon, it is a very worthy upgrade to your HDTV's...

Bowers&Wilkins MM-1

We’d like to tell you that the MM-1 is comparably priced to speaker systems made by the likes of Logitech, Altec Lansing, or even Klipsch, but 500 clams puts it at the opposite end of the spectrum. If you’re as passionate about audio quality as you are...

Elsewhere the MXSB-252 offers a couple sound features – Bass Boost (two levels) and SRS HD WOW, which spreads the sound wider than the usual stereo output. Inside the MXSB-252 are four 10W speakers and a 30W woofer.

Yamaha HS 50M

I also briefly worked with the HS80M, big brother to the HS50M reviewed here. The HS80M produced significantly more bass and low mids compared to the HS50M, but both models had essentially the same bright top end. The HS50M produced better imaging,...

Teufel Concept E

At £350 plus £20 for delivery, the Concept E is a powerful 5.1 system that seems to fill a rather tight niche. If you watch most of your films and TV shows through on-demand or catch-up services on a laptop, the built-in sound card can add true...

X-Mini X-MINI V1.1 Capsule Silver

I like the compatibility with various devices bit and little features like a lid over the port and a small groove for the audio cable is all nice. Also, the V 1.1 is just a single unit speaker, so it does add to the portability. However, there's not...

At £125, this speaker has a great range of features for the price. It's not as loud as the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, but it's also much more portable and supports both NFC and aptX. It's that convenience you'll be paying for here, rather than outright...
