DALI Zensor 1 5.1

By contrast, the cube-shaped SUB E-9 F is a pleasingly compact affair. It’s not actually part of the Zensor family, but luckily the Black Ash finish and lacquered front panel is a perfect match for the other speakers. It’s sturdily built and features...

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 9

Canton’s wall-mountable soundbar boasts stupendous sound quality despite its slender dimensions, but Q Acoustics’ equally brilliant but cheaper rival sticks a soundbar-shaped fly in the ointment.

Sony HT-CT370

Sony’s design and features lay a good foundation for a promising mid-price soundbar, but its performance lets the HT-CT370 down.

Klipsch KMC 1

Klipsch's KMC 1, a $299.99 portable Bluetooth speaker, finds itself in an awkward place in the market. For less money, there are more portable options like the Bose SoundLink Mini and the JBL Pulse; for as much or more money, models with more handsome,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
