LG SH5

I'd also say the SH5 is a worthy upgrade over some of our other top budget soundbars, such as the Steljes Audio Calliope. The SH5’s dedicated subwoofer makes a big difference to the overall depth and warmth of the music, and the LG’s superior build...

Creative iRoar Go

Creative fell off my radar since the last time I used a pair of their computer speakers. The iRoar Go has just blasted them back in my line of sight front and center. This speaker is amazing and worth the beefier price tag.

Sony GTK-XB5

The first thing to say about this speaker enclosure is that it is huge. But it has a huge party sound too. Unless you have an awful lot of parties, you'll probably want to hang on to the packaging, because the snappily-titled Sony GTK-XB7 uses up an...

Yamaha YSP-5600

At a cost that’s far more than most sound bar setups — without all their purpose-built convenience — the YSP-5600 sits in a somewhat awkward position on the sound bar scale. Still, with all its caveats, Yamaha has loaded some truly brilliant sound...

B & O Beolit 17

For $500, the B&O Play Beolit 17 gets just about everything right. Its minor flirtation with distortion only occurs at the very highest volumes on the most challenging deep bass tracks, and even that can be easily remedied with subtle adjustments in...

Denon HEOS 7

With app inconsistencies, a lack of Mac compatibility, and audio performance that fails to rise above the crowd, Denon’s Heos multi-room speaker system was at best underwhelming, and at worst, downright annoying. Even if big bass is your pleasure, the...

Marshall Stockwell

At moderate volumes and on genres that lack deep bass, we love the Marshall Stockwell—but the distortion at higher volumes is a bummer. If you're searching for a speaker with the Stockwell's looks and EQ options—but no distortion—the more expensive...
