Onkyo LS-T10

The Onkyo LS-T10 sound stand feels well-built and sounds good with movies, but its lousy music performance makes it tough to recommend.

Jawbone MINI Jambox

The Jawbone Jambox was one of the first really successful portable Bluetooth speakers. Jawbone made it larger with the Big Jambox, and now there's the smaller Mini Jambox ($179.99 direct). This sleeker version of the Jambox is thinner, lighter, and...

Sharp HT-SB60

The Sharp HT-SB602 offers plenty of features, a wide soundstage and high-energy movie playback, but its overall sound quality can't stand up to similarly priced rivals.

Yamaha YAS-152

Yamaha delivers a one-box soundbar solution for 55-inch-and-larger HDTVs with solid connectivity options, but sound quality suffers in the bargain.

Klipsch SB120

If you favor performance over convenience and good looks, the natural and musical Klipsch SB 120 speaker stand is a decent buy.

Samsung HW-J650

The HW-J650 is an outstanding bar for the burgeoning audio enthusiast. Packing walloping bass and a handful of adjustment options, it's a solid soundbar by any measurement. Too bad a distinct echo and a lack of ports keep it from being pitch perfect.

JBL Cinema SB350

JBL's Cinema SB350 is a 2.1-channel soundbar with a wireless subwoofer, and even features built-in Bluetooth for playing music. The $349.95 system doesn't offer particularly impressive performance, lacking much crispness or subtlety in its sound...

LG SoundPlate LAP340

Slab-shaped speaker systems are beginning to pick up steam as an alternative to soundbars. Instead of a bar of speakers to place in front of your HDTV, you place a whole, thin block of speakers under your HDTV. This makes the sound system even less...

SVS SB-2000

The SB-2000 comes dangerously close to the performance of SVS’ own premium subs, which can cost up to $1000 more. For the price, the SB-2000 offers a deadly combination of potent power, tight articulation, deep extension, and good ole’ fashioned...

SVS PB-2000

As I said above, it's easy to look at a subwoofer like the PB-2000 and make a lot of assumptions about it, but yet again, SVS has proven to be a company that defies expectations based on aesthetics and price. I found it to be an incredibly impactful...

Pioneer SP-EFS73

Atmos isn’t for everyone, and we don’t expect adoption to be very high for the first few years. But if you’re itching to get in on Atmos as soon as possible, Pioneer’s Atmos Enabled Elite speaker system by Andrew Jones is an outstanding choice. Not...

Polk Audio TL1600

US brand Polk Audio attacks the UK compact speaker market with the TL1600, an affordable 5.1 pack bristling with innovation. In the box are four bijou TL1 satellites that stand just 165mm high, plus a horizontally aligned centre speaker and a cute,...

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...

Sonos Sub

This sub woofer changes the entire Sonos sound system. If you splurged for the sound bar, you can afford this too.

Klipsch RF26F

These speakers are awesome! I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay an extra $275 each speaker to get the R-28F but after hearing the sound of these in the Magnolia section at BB I decided to take them home, with a center channel, 10 inch sub and rear...

Cambridge Audio continues to expand its wireless speaker line with the Minx Go, the company's first Bluetooth speaker that hits the vital sub-$200 range. Unlike the AirPlay-and-Bluetooth-equipped Minx Air 100 and Minx Air 200, the Minx Go is...

Koss BTS1

The Koss BTS1 can play your music with a natural, warm quality. If that alone is enough to warrant the low cost, you'll be happy. However, if you love oodles of features, you might be left wanting more.

Ruark Audio MR1

We’re seriously impressed with the Ruark MR1s. Not only do they give the larger Epoz Aktimate Micros a run for their money in terms of pure sound quality, they do so from a much smaller, more stylish shell.

Klipsch Reference R-10B

The new R-10B sound bar seems to epitomize the goal of Klipsch’s new Reference line, providing high-quality sound at a reasonable price. Thanks to its tall profile, the bar begs to be mounted, and also doesn’t offer a whole lot of extras. But if you’re...
