Sony SRS-X55

Given its price point the quality of sound and level of bass that kick out from the Sony SRS-X55 is seriously impressive.

Focal Dimension

While Focal’s Dimension is no substitute for a good multichannel surround system it does a wonderful job of delivering high-fidelity sound in smaller spaces where multiple speakers simply aren’t an option – that goes double if musicality is a critical...

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...

Logitech UE Boom

The UE Boom earns our highest marks. It's super-portable, the battery lasts seemingly forever, and It sounds downright fantastic — especially for a small speaker priced...

JBL Cinema SB250

A great solution for any home theater setup, it doesn't get as good as a home theater with receiver setup but it's pretty damn close. Plus it saves a lot of space!

JBL Charge 2 Plus / 2+

The JBL Charge 2+ is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds flat-out great -- and can double as a backup battery for your phone, too.

JBL Boost TV

The JBL Boost TV soundbar is a compact and affordable way to add plenty of audio power to your television, but don't expect musical magic.

Definitive Technology W Studio Micro

The Definitive Technology W Studio Micro soundbar is tiny enough to easily fit in front of your HDTV without blocking it, with a wireless subwoofer to provide plenty of power.

Denon HEOS 7

With app inconsistencies, a lack of Mac compatibility, and audio performance that fails to rise above the crowd, Denon’s Heos multi-room speaker system was at best underwhelming, and at worst, downright annoying. Even if big bass is your pleasure, the...

Sony SRS-X11

Portable Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes now, but few are quite as travel-friendly as Sony's SRS-X11. The SRS-X11 is a tiny 2-inch cube that can be tossed in a bag or carried by the included strap. For $69.99, however, the speaker is...

Yamaha’s WX-030 is a great little speaker, and the MusicCast ecosystem that it’s part of has some very attractive elements.

Samsung Radiant360 R1

Although it doesn't have the best overall sound quality, the Samsung Radiant360 R1 is a welcome departure from most Wi-Fi speakers and works well if you primarily want background music.

Klipsch Reference R-115SW

I was starting to think that mainstream speaker companies had no business in today's subwoofer business because they can't deliver the kind of value and performance that some of the Internet-only guys can. The R-115SW proves that notion wrong. It's...

Sony SRS-X77

Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the integrated battery make the SRS-X77 a jack of all trades, rivalling the more expensive Bowers & Wilkins T7 - which lacks any real multiroom functionality. Used as a conventional Bluetooth speaker, you'll get about 10...

MartinLogan Motion 35XT GB Bookshelf speaker, each bk gloss

The Martin Logan 35XTs aren’t quite the nimble performers their smaller siblings are – more get-up-and-go wouldn’t go amiss – and they aren’t the most talented or all-round speakers on the market. But if you’re willing to compromise here and there, and...

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.

Canton DM 75

Canton's DM 50, reviewed last year, is perhaps best used with TVs around the 48in mark; the step-up DM 75 on test here supports screens up to 60in (or up to 40kg in weight). Bigger screens need a bigger sound and the DM 75's roomier cabinet should...
