Sony SA-NS410

I have the NS-400 and enjoy the sound quality. I was really expecting that the next iteration of the speaker would incorporate bluetooth and was looking forward to purchasing the new model. Nope. No bluetooth. Looks like the big change is the addition...

Logitech AudioStation Express

It's a bit too steep at Rs. 7995. Had it been a wee bit cheaper I would have bought one myself. If you have the moolah to spend, go for it. Other than that bit of advice I'd just like to say it's a good product, extremely portable and it may not be...

Denon Cocoon Home

The price is, of course, the sticking point with many of these new AirPlay devices. The larger Denon Cocoon Home will retail for $599 while the smaller Cocoon Portable will run $499. While not overpriced compared to other AirPlay speakers, the Denon...

JBL Cinema SB200

The SB200 features two 89mm woofers and two 25mm tweeters. Those woofers, along with a precision bass port, are supposed to generate enough deep bass to give sound depth and punch without the need for a separate subwoofer.

Pioneer SP-PK52FS

The Pioneer SP-PK52FS is, by a galactic margin, the best-sounding 5.1 speaker system we’ve heard under $600. If you’re looking for a budget home theater system, make it your top priority to listen to these speakers right away. You’ll be glad you did.

Wharfedale Diamond 121

Priced at Rs. 20,000, the Wharfedale’s Diamond 121 bookshelf speakers are both realistic and magical. I say realistic because reality is never perfect and neither is this pair of dimunitive speakers. They have a threshold for power and you can’t cross...

For all-purpose real-life applications, the KEF Q300’s are the bee’s knees. When you compare them to much more expensive speakers, you may find that the soundstage is not quite as 3d, the imaging is not as pinpoint; they don’t have quite the same...

Burmester B10

These Burmesters deliver a really pleasant sound hitched to, say, Roksan's Caspian M2 electronics, but they also have the transparency to make the most of something like Audio Research's LS27/Ref 27 combination. That's an ample sonic stretch for a...
