Orbitsound SB60 Airsound BASE

Get used to the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base and you’ll quickly forget just how bad standard TV audio so often is. For the price the SB60 delivers plenty of audio thump and the adjustable EQ and built-in down-firing sub see that quality remains high.

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...

Sharp HT-SB60

Soundbars are a simple way to replace your HDTV's paltry speakers with a powerful sound system, but most are designed for screens smaller than 55 inches. If you have a really big HDTV, it would easily dwarf the average soundbar. Sharp offered an...

LUXA2 Groovy

The Luxa2 Groovy W has poor sound quality. The combination of lo-fi Class D amplifier and low-grade Bluetooth hamper any decent audio quality from this unremarkable speaker. In our tests it had a tiresome sound when tasked with playing music but it may...

Kicker Amphitheater BT2

If you want a speaker that can get quite loud, the $249.95 Kicker Amphitheater Bluetooth 2 (also known as the Amphitheater BT2, or the 40iK5BT2, or simply the K5 BT2) won't disappoint. Aside from some issues with deep bass reproduction, the BT2 is a...

One of the home theater industry's greatest sins is modesty. If excessively modest people hide their lights under a bushel, speaker and receiver manufacturers go them one better, hiding their achievements in boxes. Boxes with drivers on the front,...

Looks cool, but the sound is very mediocre. Most importantly, once it was all set up, whenever something with expectedly HD sound was playing, the sound would cut out every minute or so for a second, as if it was syncing the wireless subwoofer. Pretty...
