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.

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-XB3

No matter the mode, the Sony SRS-XB3 provides a bass punch that we rarely hear in speakers this size and price. If you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker in the sub-$200 price range, this is the one to get—you can consider the water-resistant...

Yamaha YSP-5600

At a cost that’s far more than most sound bar setups — without all their purpose-built convenience — the YSP-5600 sits in a somewhat awkward position on the sound bar scale. Still, with all its caveats, Yamaha has loaded some truly brilliant sound...

Libratone ONE Click

The One Click feels like a bit of a conundrum—it sounds great for a speaker of this size, but not necessarily for a speaker of this price. So it exceeds our expectation for a small portable wireless speaker, but at $200 or less, there is plenty of...

Naim Mu-so

Performance and Conclusions While it's very large for a wireless speaker, the Mu-so is relatively small for a one-piece home theater sound system, and it lacks a separate subwoofer. Despite that, it can put out some impressive power and solid, clear...
