Samsung M5 WAM551

LG SoundPlate LAP340

Slab-shaped speaker systems are beginning to pick up steam as an alternative to soundbars. Instead of a bar of speakers to place in front of your HDTV, you place a whole, thin block of speakers under your HDTV. This makes the sound system even less...

Ruark MR1

British firm Ruark created the Ruark MR1 speakers as an entry point for those who want better sounding music, but aren't prepared to dish out lots of cash. Have they achieved that goal, or can you achieve the same for less?

Q Acoustics Q BT3 Weiß

What’s more, build quality is of the highest order and we love the funky red finish. It’s relatively pricey and not as discreet or hassle-free as a soundbar, but with sound quality this good it’s worth the inconvenience.

Buying good speakers has never been cheap, if you want quality then you have to stump up a bit of cash. That said, we've never considered paying nearly £1,000 for a pair of Bluetooth speakers before. On the surface, that sounds ridiculous because you...

Harman Kardon AURA

The Harman Kardon Aura looks more like a work of art than a speaker, but it can do the job of both. While the $399.95 device looks striking, with a clear, curved dome and subtle lighting, it's also a functional and powerful wireless speaker that...

Audio Pro Allroom AIR ONE

When you add up all the pluses and minuses, for me, the Audio Pro Allroom Air One doesn't quite earn the white gloves that it didn't really need in the first place, mostly due to its uneven frequency response. Again, though, the boosts in upper-mid and...
