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...

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...

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...
