Yamaha YAS-203

Absence of HDMI support hobbles what is otherwise a great-sounding sound bar.

Philips HTL5120

The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.

Pioneer SBX-N500

Most soundbars are focused on sound quality, but Pioneer's SBX-N500 is a little more ambitious. Yes, it packs 140W of muscle for beefing up movies, but it's also blessed with the sort of multimedia and networking talents that put some full-sized...

Panasonic SC-HTE80

With a footprint of 46 x 28cm the Panasonic SC-HTE80 looks (colour differences aside) like a slightly shrunken version of the Canton DM 50, with largely unadorned surfaces and a dot matrix display hidden behind the cheese-grater grille across the...

Vizio S2121W-D0

The Vizio S2121w-D0 Sound Stand is cheap but not a good value, with quality that pales against the competition -- including Vizio's own sound bars.

Tannoy Mercury V1I

‘If it ain't broke don't fix it' goes the saying, but no-one told Tannoy. Its affordable Mercury V speaker system blew my socks off back in 2012, but that hasn't stopped the company tinkering with the fifth-generation blueprint in a bid to further pimp...

Cambridge Audio AERO 5

Cambridge Audio is probably best known at the moment for its popular Minx compact speaker range, which uses Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) drivers to generate a large soundstage that belies their diddy dimensions, and the success of BMRs inside the Minx...

Pioneer SW-8

The Pioneer SW-8MK2 subwoofer offers remarkable performance, not just for its very inexpensive price but because it competes with much more expensive units. With the $160 stock model, the SW-8MK2 already has excellent bass extension and tonality. If...

KEF E-305

One glorious Easter some years back, I got a knock at the door and a parcel was delivered. It was a cool bit of packaging, with the shattered remains of what had once been a chocolate Easter egg, in the shape of KEF's latest ‘egg' speaker, inside. As a...

KEF LS50

Mini-monitors are designed for near-field listening so the KEF LS50s are probably not going to speakers that you'll place in your home theater. KEF spec's the LS50s down to 79Hz at -3dB and 47Hz at -6dB. This is a pretty amazing response for a...

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...
