X-Mini X-MINI V1.1 Capsule Silver

The X-Mini Max is a portable stereo speaker system for your smartphone or tablet, and while it lacks bass punch, it sounds smoother and clearer than you might expect, given its tiny size.

Yamaha NS-P40

The multi-channel output of the Yamaha NS-P40 is excellent. It delivers clean sound, does not sound bright, has good pace and every satellite works in a perfect cohesive manner to deliver a breathtaking 5.1 soundstage. The small form factor of the...

Bowers & Wilkins Z2

This speaker’s elegant design, flawless wireless performance, and stellar upper register make it a serious contender in the mid to high-end wireless speaker market.

Fluance XLHTB XL Series

The Fluance XLHTB is a head-turning set of speakers at a reasonable price, and while it sounds perfectly fine in a home theater context, it lacks the performance subtleties peers can offer.

Harman Kardon GO+PLAY Wireless

Maxell MXSP-SB3000

Up close it looks a bit like an MDF project your dad knocked together in the 1980s but, given the price tag, Maxell's MXSP-SB3000 has an awful lot going for it in terms of its spec. Its size and strength mean it will accommodate huge TVs up to 80kg in...

Samsung SB330

For the same amount of money (or even less if on sale) you should get a Sony SRS-X3. This speaker's sound quality doesn't compare to X3. There is NO BASS AT ALL. Longer battery life is only due to weaker speaker power output. This thing looks good but...

Dali Zensor 3

The Dali Zensor 3s are a great success. More than that, they’re a treat. They don’t put a foot wrong, and they’ll occupy you for hours.

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...

Boston Acoustics SoundWare

While we aren’t prepared to dub the SoundWare XS Cinema system a “sound bar killer”, we do think it makes an superior sounding sound bar alternative with an ultra-small footprint.

Philips SBT30

Philips’ SoundShooter SBT30 is one of the few ultra-portable speakers we feel confident recommending. Its lasting battery, ample sound and near-weightlessness make it a top pick in tiny wireless speakers.

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...
