Logitech UE Megaboom

There’s only one thing we don’t like about the UE Megaboom: the price tag. $300 is a serious tax to pay for the kind of weatherproofing that’s really only necessary for the perpetual outdoor adventurer — or the terribly careless. If you’re not so sure...

Sony SRS-X99

The SRS-X99 is Sony's current range-topping wireless speaker, a step up from the £350 SRS-X88. Like the X88, this top-end model supports high-resolution and multiroom playback, but increases the power, amplifiers and driver count to deliver what I hope...

KEF EGG

Part of the excitement the Egg imparts is the unexpected scale of its soundstage and the brilliant effect of its stereo separation. It is excels in almost every aspect at which even the most advanced one-box speakers fail. And underscoring it all is...

Philips Fidelio B1

Thanks to microbeaming speaker drivers and brilliant DSP processing, the Fidelio B1 really does sound bigger than it looks – at least when it comes to TV and movies.

Sony SRS-XB10

While it should costs a little less, the Sony SRS-XB10 is an attractively designed mini wireless speaker that outputs more bass than your typical tiny speaker.

KEF LS50

The KEF LS50 wireless is an all-in-one active speaker system featuring dual 24/192 DACs, dual-mono amps, and dedicated DSP crossover per speaker. A killer audiophile system in a small footprint?

Marshall Kilburn

Performance and Conclusions The Kilburn can get quite loud — if you top out the volume on your device and the speaker itself, the speaker doesn't distort. Even pumping up the bass EQ all the way and playing a track with intense sub-bass, like The Knife...

Sonos Playbar

At $699, the Sonos PLAYBAR is a very good, somewhat expensive, sound bar. If the price was lower, it would certainly be a very easy recommendation (“no brainer” would comer to mind). But since it’s not, I would urge you to look at your actual needs.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the Muo delivers some impressive low-end considering it has no actual subwoofer, just a passive radiator. There's not a massive sub-bass sound...

Creative Sound Blaster ROAR 2

The best way to look at the Roar 2 is to simply consider it the same as the original Roar, albeit looking better after dieting for a few months. (Maybe it should have been called Roar 1.5?) Some cosmetic changes give it a slight makeover, but it’s...

Sony GTK-XB5

The first thing to say about this speaker enclosure is that it is huge. But it has a huge party sound too. Unless you have an awful lot of parties, you'll probably want to hang on to the packaging, because the snappily-titled Sony GTK-XB7 uses up an...
