Sony SRS-X33

As mentioned earlier, the SRS-X33 is intriguing—at certain volumes, it sounds fantastic for its size and price, but at higher volumes, it can sound unlistenable. For $130, I still really like the Sony SRS-X33 when listening at moderate volumes. It's an...

Razer Leviathan Mini

Performance and Conclusions You wouldn't expect a speaker this size to deliver much bass, or to do so without coming close to distortion, but a speaker this price is another story. On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent...

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...

Cambridge Audio TV5

The Cambridge Audio TV 5 is a powerful one-piece sound system and a solid candidate for anyone looking for a sound slab. It produces some slight chassis buzz with deep bass at high volumes, but it doesn't distort, and offers a full, room-filling sound....

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...

Denon Envaya Mini DSB-100

The eye-catching Denon Envaya Mini is a mighty portable speaker capable of delivering big, burbling bass and quality audio over the airwaves. Genuinely portable, with its own carry case included, we can't think of a more desirable sub-£100 small-scale...

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...

Sony SRS-XB2

The difference between the SRS-XB2 and its more expensive sibling is vast: The SRS-XB3 has a second passive radiator and larger drivers that combine to produce a substantially more powerful, bass-forward sound. This is to be expected in a larger...

Sony HT-CT790

If you're looking to improve your home entertainment setup, then the Sony HT-CT790 sound bar could be what you're looking for. With a wireless subwoofer and virtual surround-sound technology, it certainly has all the features, but does it have the...

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill+ / Pill Plus

Conclusions If there's a real gripe here, it's that the Pill+ sounds markedly different depending on its angle to your ears—an issue that could have been fixed by angling the drivers upward or building in a kickstand that allows you to tilt the speaker...

Yamaha YSP-1600

Yamaha’s YSP-1600 is a fine upgrade from just about any TV’s built-in speakers, but it’s not a good choice if you’re also looking for speakers for listening to music.
