Pioneer SBX-N500

Most soundbars are focused on sound quality, but Pioneer's SBX-N500 is a little more ambitious. Yes, it packs 140W of muscle for beefing up movies, but it's also blessed with the sort of multimedia and networking talents that put some full-sized...

KEF E-305

One glorious Easter some years back, I got a knock at the door and a parcel was delivered. It was a cool bit of packaging, with the shattered remains of what had once been a chocolate Easter egg, in the shape of KEF's latest ‘egg' speaker, inside. As a...

Canton DM 50

Canton released two new surround bars today, the DM 50 and DM 9. The DM 50 is more of a surround platform for your display rather than a bar. The DM 9 is a traditional bar. Both have Bluetooth 4.0.

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is a big, well-designed wireless speaker that supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Internet radio, but its sound quality doesn't live up to its lofty high price.

Maxell MXSP-SB3000

Soundbars are one thing, but TV speaker bases are the latest trend in affordable home cinema sound. The Maxell MXSP-SB3000 Soundbar is a giant under-the-telly base with integrated subwoofers and speakers to boost that TV sound.

Sony HT-ST7

For all the things we associate Sony with for home theater, speakers are lower down on that list. Many people scoffed when they decided to introduce a $27,000 pair of speakers, the SS-AR1, but response to them has been phenomenal. They've followed that...

Vizio S5430W-C2 3.0 Home Theater Sound Bar

Not all speakers have to get your attention with fancy styling. Sometimes they're just big black boxes with grilles, that make sound—and that's okay. The Vizio S5430W-C2 falls into that category, as a soundbar that isn't exactly eye-catching, but...

Logitech Z600 Bluetooth

The Logitech Z600 is priced officially at Rs 12,995, but you can find them for as low as Rs 8,000 on online stores. While this is still a bit steep for a pair of 2.0 speakers, it’s not too bad when you take into account the good audio quality, the...
