Definitive Technology Incline

Definitive Technology's Incline is a stereo desktop PC speaker system with plenty of power and lovely balance. The angled contour delivers sound upward to the listener's ears, which is a design decision often overlooked by competitors. At $399, the...

Philips HTL5120

Soundbars are currently home cinema's hero products and the HTL5120 is a fine example of the genre. The design is more luxurious than the price tag suggests, with silky black cloth, brushed silver panels and curvy gloss-black ports at both ends. It can...

Pioneer XW-SMA4-K

Pioneer's XW-SMA4 is its premium Wi-Fi hi-fi speaker, with the $100 premium over the cheaper XW-SMA1 translating to a built-in subwoofer. If you listen to a lot of music, or listen to it loud, buying the SMA4 is a no-brainer, but it's an expensive...

Ultimate Ears Boom

At £170, the UE Boom isn't cheap, but it does have an extensive list of features. NFC is quickly becoming a must-have for easy pairing, and the speaker's incredibly tough construction makes it ideal for taking outside the house. The Boom's sound...

Bose SOLO

Its 3" height affords a slim, low-profile silhouette that blends in with most TV sets. However, a width and depth of 20.75" x 12.25" means the TV has to be placed on top of the soundbar. This restricts the maximum size of the TV set to 42", and you're...

Yamaha YAS-152

The YAS-152 is big on bombastic bass, but came up short on clarity and detail.

KEF E-305

Samsung HW-F450

Looks cool, but the sound is very mediocre. Most importantly, once it was all set up, whenever something with expectedly HD sound was playing, the sound would cut out every minute or so for a second, as if it was syncing the wireless subwoofer. Pretty...

KEF LS50

Mini-monitors are designed for near-field listening so the KEF LS50s are probably not going to speakers that you'll place in your home theater. KEF spec's the LS50s down to 79Hz at -3dB and 47Hz at -6dB. This is a pretty amazing response for a...

Canon SB 20

I'm afraid the Creative Sound Blaster SB20 is a Decepticon, because this speaker is much more than meets the eye. At a glance, the $199 Roar is a standard portable Bluetooth speaker. It's silver, brick-like, and bears more than a passing resemblance to...

Boston Acoustics released the MC200 Air AirPlay speaker last year to mixed reviews, including ours. At $299, it simply didn't sound like a speaker that should cost that much. The MC100 Blue ($149 direct) is half the price—credit the lack of Wi-Fi...
