Klipsch KMC 1

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,...

Scosche boomBOTTLE

There are plenty of water-resistant, portable Bluetooth speakers on the market, but few are outright waterproof like the Scosche BoomBottle H2O. For $99.99, you get a rugged, rubberized, highly portable device that lets you keep your wireless audio...

Canton DM 50

Next up was the Canton DM 9. This was a true surroundbar at 35'' x 4.7'' x 2.8'' and is the thinnest bar they've released to date. It has all the same features as the DM 50 but it is in a smaller enclosure. This one has integrated keyhole mounts for...

Sony HT-CT370

Sony’s design and features lay a good foundation for a promising mid-price soundbar, but its performance lets the HT-CT370 down.

Sony SRS-X2

The Sony SRS-X2 is not a bad product by any means. It has an attractive design and is small enough to be truly portable. Apart from a slight issue with the design of the feet, it's a convenient product that's easy to use.

Sony HT-ST7

For all the things we associate Sony with for home theater, speakers are lower down on that list. Many people scoffed when they decided to introduce a $27,000 pair of speakers, the SS-AR1, but response to them has been phenomenal. They've followed that...

Cambridge Audio Go v2

Unless you're a real sucker for a basic, but suave design, the Cambridge Audio Go V2 doesn't do much to shake up the Bluetooth speaker market. You're likely to find better-sounding speakers out there that cost less.

Denon DHT-T100

Speaker bases are designed to be simple - the sort of device that you plug in and can then forget about while enjoying the enhancement they bring. The Denon DHT-T100 excels in this role, so should be of interest to anyone who wants to get a boost over...

Philips Fidelio E5 (CSS7235Y)

The Philips Fidelio E5 is an attractive and powerful system that can transform from a 2.1 stereo system into a full 5.1 surround sound system with ease. No need for a separate amplifier or loads of wires, it's an out-of-the-box multiple solution for...

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.

Onkyo LS-T10

The Onkyo LS-T10 sound stand feels well-built and sounds good with movies, but its lousy music performance makes it tough to recommend.

Polk Audio MagniFi AM8111-A

Polk's sound bar is unique in that it has discrete left, right, and center channels, but it doesn't support HDMI and it's audio performance wasn't as good as several of its similarly priced competitors.
