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.

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...

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...

Q Acoustics Media 4

Its powerful, cohesive sound makes Q Acoustics’ Media 4 soundbar a must-buy at this price – just don’t expect HDMI ports or surround processing.

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-203

Absence of HDMI support hobbles what is otherwise a great-sounding sound bar.

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...

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.

Sol Republic PUNK

It's all about making a statement with this one! The SOL Republic PUNK is certainly unorthodox looking, just like the company's line of headphones, seeing that this square puck shaped thing doesn't really jump out as being a speaker right from the...

Tivoli Audio Albergo

Albergo is Italian for hotel. It's a fitting name for the $249.99 Tivoli Audio Albergo Clock Radio with Bluetooth, as the last time I saw a Tivoli radio, it was at a hip new hotel in the Catskills. And just like the rest of Tivoli's products, the...

Pioneer SBX-N500

Most soundbars are focused on sound quality, but Pioneer's SBX-N500 is a little more ambitious. Yes, it packs 140W of muscle for beefing up movies, but it's also blessed with the sort of multimedia and networking talents that put some full-sized...

Samsung HW-H600 Sound Stand

Not the best performer on the market, but Samsung’s debut soundbase delivers surprisingly fulsome sound and plenty of features for a tempting price.

Tannoy Mercury V1I

‘If it ain't broke don't fix it' goes the saying, but no-one told Tannoy. Its affordable Mercury V speaker system blew my socks off back in 2012, but that hasn't stopped the company tinkering with the fifth-generation blueprint in a bid to further pimp...

British firm Ruark created the Ruark MR1 speakers as an entry point for those who want better sounding music, but aren't prepared to dish out lots of cash. Have they achieved that goal, or can you achieve the same for less?

Q Acoustics Q BT3 Weiß

What’s more, build quality is of the highest order and we love the funky red finish. It’s relatively pricey and not as discreet or hassle-free as a soundbar, but with sound quality this good it’s worth the inconvenience.
