McIntosh XR200

This month, McIntosh's luxe XR200 loudspeakers are dropping into an authorized retail store near you, and they're worth a look. Dark and dangerous-looking, the speakers also have tone chops to match. They're spendy, for sure, but their amazing sound...

JBL LSR305

Whether you’re a DJ, a budding sound engineer, or just a music lover, JBL’s LSR305 are gorgeous pair of monitors that offer premium performance on a big-box store budget. While there’s plenty of hype around their waveguide technology, we think it’s...

Audio Pro Allroom AIR ONE

When you add up all the pluses and minuses, for me, the Audio Pro Allroom Air One doesn't quite earn the white gloves that it didn't really need in the first place, mostly due to its uneven frequency response. Again, though, the boosts in upper-mid and...

Philips BT100B

For 20 bucks, I'd have been quite satisfied with this speaker, but not for 30. GOOD: it's small, about the size of a small coffee cup. Works well, and paired instantly with my iPhone - no need to even read the instructions. The sound is mellow and...

Polk Audio Woodbourne

There's not much Polk's Woodbourne wireless speaker doesn't do. At $599.95, the pricey system streams via both Bluetooth and AirPlay, and accepts wired audio from sources ranging from your smartphone to Blu-ray player. It's big, heavy, and good...

Scosche boomBOTTLE

There are plenty of water-resistant, portable Bluetooth speakers on the market, but few are outright waterproof like the Scosche BoomBottle H2O. For $99.99, you get a rugged, rubberized, highly portable device that lets you keep your wireless audio...

Samsung SB330

I just had my Samsung delivered to my home earlier today. I have to say I'm thrilled to have this mighty might added on to my stable of what I consider to be some of the best Ipod speakers on the market. It came already charged from the box. I utilized...

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.

If a big, beefy sound at the price appeals, jump right in. But we'd trade a little of the bluster for greater control

B&W Bowers & Wilkins Group CM1WG

The B&W CM10s are like a Black Diamond ski slope: capable of bringing out the absolute best in those that go down it, but also exposing all weaknesses. Fed with high quality content they deliver great realism and detail. The saxophone on "So What"...

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.

Panasonic SC-HTE80

With a footprint of 46 x 28cm the Panasonic SC-HTE80 looks (colour differences aside) like a slightly shrunken version of the Canton DM 50, with largely unadorned surfaces and a dot matrix display hidden behind the cheese-grater grille across the...

Philips HTL5120

The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.

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...

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...

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...

The Pioneer SW-8MK2 subwoofer offers remarkable performance, not just for its very inexpensive price but because it competes with much more expensive units. With the $160 stock model, the SW-8MK2 already has excellent bass extension and tonality. If...
