Sony HT-CT60BT

Although the product itself is top quality as expected from Sony, be aware if you have a TV which is not of Sony brand. I have an LG TV which has no headphone socket or audio digital. As I personally only want the sound bar for ps3 games and movies...

Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue

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...

Sony SRS-BTX300

You have to hand it to Sony—the company really has no clue how to concisely name a product, even after all these years. Thus, kind reader, we will refer to the Sony Bluetooth Wireless Speaker SRS-BTX300 henceforth as simply the BTX300 for the sake of...

Teufel Concept E

At £350 plus £20 for delivery, the Concept E is a powerful 5.1 system that seems to fill a rather tight niche. If you watch most of your films and TV shows through on-demand or catch-up services on a laptop, the built-in sound card can add true...

Logitech 984-000044

LG Electronics NB3530A

The soundbar kicks out an impressive sounding 300W of power, while LG’s 3D Surround Processor aims to make stereo sound feel more immersive. With a lack of HDMI inputs comes a lack of HD audio decoding, but the LG will decode Dolby Digital and DTS.

Sony SRS-BTS50(B)

At £125, this speaker has a great range of features for the price. It's not as loud as the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, but it's also much more portable and supports both NFC and aptX. It's that convenience you'll be paying for here, rather than outright...

Get used to the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base and you’ll quickly forget just how bad standard TV audio so often is. For the price the SB60 delivers plenty of audio thump and the adjustable EQ and built-in down-firing sub see that quality remains high.
