Libratone A/S 8087708

Libratone markets their new Live and Lounge AirPlay speakers as "Scandinavia in your living room." Well, apparently this isn't the Ikea Scandinavia but the more expensive, "cashmere-wrapped" Scandinavia. The speakers do boast not only the ability to...

Carbon Audio ZUS2BK

You shouldn't realistically expect an under-$100 wireless speaker to sound magnificent, but it's fair to hope for clean, undistorted audio (even at top volumes) and a well-designed product. Carbon Audio's Zooka ($99.95 direct) is a victory of...

EBS Drome 12

I used to have a Nemesis NS410 combo amp but I needed something smaller, so after a little research I went for the Drome. The combo amp has incredibly well-thought features you don't see with other manufacturers. With the use of the phantom power...

Monitor Audio WS 100

If you have a home office and need decent sound for the price of a pair of decent headphones, these speakers are enough to worry rivals at twice the price. Build is amazing and that's not something we say lightly about laptop speakers.

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...
