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...

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...

McIntosh XR200

This month, McIntosh's luxe XR200 loudspeakers are dropping into an authorized retail store near you, and they're worth a look. Dark and dangerous-looking, the speakers also have tone chops to match. They're spendy, for sure, but their amazing sound...

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...

Loewe Speaker 2GO 2.1

Overall then, this is definitely one of the best-designed Bluetooth speakers out there, oozing quality from every orifice. Practical touches abound as well, very much not all mouth no trousers. However, priced at a salty £269 you'd be expecting a...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200

Six hundred stones buys you quite a lot of digital gratification these days. So if you're going to pay $600 for a wireless speaker, it had better be worth it.

Yamaha YAS-103

Honestly, we like the YAS-103 as a sound bar solution rather than a surround sound bar. With wide placement of the full range front drivers and downfiring woofers for additional bass, the YAS-103 should present a fairly wide soundstage and large (as...

Logitech X100

Yes, so the X100 is not for audiophiles, but it’s not meant to be. If you have sharp ears, you will notice the lack of depth. And that’s completely fine, because at Rs 2,995 we can wholeheartedly recommend it. It looks unique enough to become a...

Pioneer SBX-N500

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?
