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...

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...

Libratone Zipp

The Zipp is a very good and versatile wireless speaker, but Sonos has much better multi-room audio infrastructure.

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...

Denon HEOS 1

The Denon Heos 1 offers very good sound for a small multi-room speaker, but the app experience and support lags behind the competition.

Razer Leviathan Mini

Performance and Conclusions You wouldn't expect a speaker this size to deliver much bass, or to do so without coming close to distortion, but a speaker this price is another story. On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent...

Canton DM 55

Klipsch RP-280F

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Klipsch Reference Premiere system, and the RP-280FA towers specifically. I think a lot of audiophiles will dig the way the RP-280FA's subtly, slightly elevated treble brings out the details in movie soundtracks and...

Definitive Technology Definitive DI 5.5BPS Rough-In Bracket Pair

We're unable to fault Audio Pro on this one. You'll need double the cash if you want something to fit in your pencil case and sound this good, though we're pretty sure you'll choose to take the T3 with you when you hear what £150 can buy. Splendid. See...
