Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200

Six hundred stones buys you quite a lot of digital gratification these days. So if you're going to pay $600 for a wireless speaker, it had better be worth it.

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.

Philips Fidelio E5 (CSS7235Y)

Philips has always been a company known for its innovative ethos. And that still remains, despite the CE aspects of the brand now being split between two separate entities (TP Vision for TVs, Woox Innovations for audio, recently acquired by Gibson)....

Fluance Fi30

The alluring wooden surface of the Fluance Fi30 has a glossy, polished finish—like that of a piano. In fact, all you can see on the attractive $149.99 Bluetooth speaker is glorious, shiny wood, since it lacks any buttons or controls other than a power...

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

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...

KEF V720W

The KEF V700 and V720W soundbars are among the thinnest units on the market, but certainly not the least expensive at $799 and $999. Read on for our impressions.

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...

Polk Audio MagniFi AM8111-A

Polk's sound bar is unique in that it has discrete left, right, and center channels, but it doesn't support HDMI and it's audio performance wasn't as good as several of its similarly priced competitors.

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 is a great-looking speaker that supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Internet radio, but its sound quality is underwhelming, especially for its price.

Logitech Z600 Bluetooth

The Logitech Z600 is priced officially at Rs 12,995, but you can find them for as low as Rs 8,000 on online stores. While this is still a bit steep for a pair of 2.0 speakers, it’s not too bad when you take into account the good audio quality, the...

LG NB4540

Dazzling looks, decent features and crisp, detailed sound quality make LG’s soundbar system a cracking purchase, even though some rivals offer a slightly more polished performance.

Harman Kardon AURA

The Harman Kardon Aura looks more like a work of art than a speaker, but it can do the job of both. While the $399.95 device looks striking, with a clear, curved dome and subtle lighting, it's also a functional and powerful wireless speaker that...

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.

Bose Solo TV Sound System

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...
