Braven 705

We've seen a lot of the great speaker products coming from Braven in recent years, and the new 705 which will hit Aussie stores in October is a cracking little product which will suit either your kitchen, office or outdoor entertaining.

JBL Micro Wireless

Micro Wireless speaker makes a lot of sense, priced just a tad higher than the Micro II. You get the additional Bluetooth connectivity with your iPod or the phone. Pristine audio quality, as far as vocal clarity and disturbance free audio is concerned....

Q Acoustics Q BT3 Weiß

What’s more, build quality is of the highest order and we love the funky red finish. It’s relatively pricey and not as discreet or hassle-free as a soundbar, but with sound quality this good it’s worth the inconvenience.

Ruark Audio MR1

We’re seriously impressed with the Ruark MR1s. Not only do they give the larger Epoz Aktimate Micros a run for their money in terms of pure sound quality, they do so from a much smaller, more stylish shell.

Logitech UE Mini Boombox

The impressive, affordable, Bluetooth-streaming Logitech Mini Boombox is portable and packs a surprising punch for such a small speaker.

For those who want added bass over what the V700 can pump out on its own, but don't want to run a wire from a subwoofer to the soundbar, then the V720W might be the ticket. It's basically a V700 packaged with a KEF V-20W wireless subwoofer. The V-20W...

JBL Pebbles

You can find more elaborate computer speaker systems, complete with subwoofer, for the same price you’ll pay for the JBL Pebbles. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find a speaker system that can play as loud and as clean as the Pebbles do for $60. Add...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 is the smaller of the company's two new wireless speakers. It's not quite as stellar a performer as the larger Minx Air 200, though; not just because of the smaller size, but because the $449 (direct) Minx 100 makes a...

Pioneer SBX-N700

Obviously the Pioneer benefits from its price cut. It’s not always a given that a large price drop earns a product another star, but in this case, the Pioneer proves itself worthy. It’s now better featured than any soundbar we’ve seen at its price, and...

Elipson Planet M

At £1200, the Elipson Planet LW wireless speaker system is by no stretch cheap. You can pick up an Apple AirPlay-certified B&W Zeppelin Air for half the price and stream music to your heart's content. In fact, some will even prefer the artistic design...

TDK Trek Max A34

Weatherproof, robust, and loud as a jet turbine, TDK’s new TREK Max A34 makes a strong case to be your next Bluetooth buddy. We wish the speaker had more juice (and wasn’t so damned heavy), but solid performance and functionality make TDK’s A34 a great...

Sol Republic PUNK

It's all about making a statement with this one! The SOL Republic PUNK is certainly unorthodox looking, just like the company's line of headphones, seeing that this square puck shaped thing doesn't really jump out as being a speaker right from the...

Yamaha YAS-103

Honestly, we like the YAS-103 as a sound bar solution rather than a surround sound bar. With wide placement of the full range front drivers and downfiring woofers for additional bass, the YAS-103 should present a fairly wide soundstage and large (as...

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...

Bose Solo TV Sound System

Its 3" height affords a slim, low-profile silhouette that blends in with most TV sets. However, a width and depth of 20.75" x 12.25" means the TV has to be placed on top of the soundbar. This restricts the maximum size of the TV set to 42", and you're...
