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...

Ultimate Ears UE ROLL 2

The UE Roll 2 is a surprising Bluetooth speaker. It boasts a 50-foot wireless range, exceptional clarity around the mids and highs and won't malfunction after a little splash. It's far from perfect but, if you need a waterproof speaker, the Roll 2 is...

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...

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...

Marshall Kilburn

The Marshall lineup of headphones and speakers, all modeled to varying degrees after the guitar amps made famous in the 60s and 70s, have a definitively retro look that won't appeal to everyone. But if you like that motif, the good news is that beauty...

Paired with high-quality components, the ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 sounds much better than you have any right to expect from a speaker of this size and price.

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.

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...
