Onkyo LS-B50

The "soundbar" business must be booming, or at least manufacturers are banking on it doing so, as just about everyone has come out with one if not several offerings. The gambit seems logical: jam a bunch of audio transducers into an enclosure which...

Loewe Airspeaker

It’s hard to find a true weak spot in the Loewe Air Speaker, which tackles music with aplomb and – as long as you’re happy to use iOS devices and iTunes – works with a simplicity that’s totally addictive.

VM6

B&W's VM6 speakers are surprisingly capable speakers for music and movies, but their thin size impacts upon their performance.

Spracht AURA BluNote

If you don't mind the lack of controls and features, the Spracht Aura Blu Note has great sound quality for a portable Bluetooth speaker.

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...

Braven BZ570BBP

It's tough to stand out from other Bluetooth speakers in the $100 price range, where the quality often seems modest and comparable speaker to speaker. The Braven 570, which is $99.99 (direct), doesn't emerge as a clear winner, but it also does nothing...

Skullcandy Air Raid

Skullcandy is known for its headphones and earphones that are as much cool-kid fashion statements as they are audio gear. Thus far, speakers have been more or less off the radar, but with the Bluetooth audio streaming Skullcandy Air Raid ($149.99...

JBL Jembe Desktop Speaker

The JBL Jembes are good-looking, compact speakers that take seconds to set up and don’t dictate what device you use them with: anything with a 3.5mm audio out is fine. We’d prefer longer cables or the convenience of the Bluetooth model, but have no...

Bowers & Wilkins Z2 review: AirPlay speaker and iPhone dock

The B&W Zeppelin retailed for $600 when it was released. That was a hard pill for people to swallow. But the new Z2 is coming out with a much more affordable $400 price tag. While it certainly isn't an impulse buy, the Z2 is much more in reach for most...

KEF R100

We’re struggling to find any fault with this system: the fact that you’ll need to spend extra money on quality speaker stands is the only thing that comes to mind, and that just goes to show how impressive this KEF speaker package really is.

JBL Loft 20

I bought this speaker for my bedroom. It has good quality and sounds awesome. I get very good clear voices when watching a move in surround sound. Very crisp and clear. I'd recommend buying it if you are looking for a good center speaker.
