Sony SRS-BTS50(B)

At £125, this speaker has a great range of features for the price. It's not as loud as the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, but it's also much more portable and supports both NFC and aptX. It's that convenience you'll be paying for here, rather than outright...

M-Audio BX5 D2

There's precious little to fault with the BX5 D2. They hold up well against the veterans in the category, from Alesis, Mackie (with their lower cost MR5 line), KRK, Fostex, and Event (which has since retreated back upmarket, and no longer sells a...

Bose Cinemate 1 SR

Bose has to be different. You can't call the Cinemate 1SR a soundbar, it's a sound array. Likewise, the sub is not a sub, it's an Acoustimass module. Bose is also coy about giving out technical specifications, so I know not what the power output is of...

Toshiba SBM1W

Dinkier than a corgi dog and looking less refined than a crate of raw sugar beet, in soundbar country the SBM1W is more Margate than Monte Carlo – and with just 40W of power, plus the 20W wired subwoofer, in home cinema terms the SB1MW is almost an...

Scandyna Micropod

A speaker this small is never going to be a full-range dambuster, yet it excels as a small-scale monitor. If you like the looks, you’re halfway to appreciating its delicate and insightful sound.

Panasonic SC-NT10

The $100 price range of portable Bluetooth speakers is a tricky space to navigate—there's no shortage of options, but how many of them actually sound good? You might forgive the $99.99 (list) Panasonic SC-NT10 if it didn't sound superb—it's loaded with...

Yamaha YAS-101

Yamaha's YAS-101 soundbar ($299.95 list) delivers plenty of punch for a single-piece home theater audio system. It saves space by including the subwoofer—really, a bass module, as you're not going to get subterranean frequencies out of a thin...

Orbitsound SB60 Airsound BASE

The Orbitsound SB60 stands out from the crowd somewhat as a soundbase speaker with a glossy finish. This runs the risk of incurring scuff marks or scratches and adds to the cost. Handled with care though, it does look the part. For added interior...
