Sony SRS-X88

 

Sony's SRS-X88 is a wireless speaker from the same family of multiroom audio products as the impressive HT-XT3 soundbase. It's one of three Wi-Fi/Bluetooth speakers in Sony's latest range, sitting below the top-end SRS-X99 (£599) but above the portable...

Elegant design and sturdy build ; Loads of streaming features ; Nicely balanced sound with punchy bass and clear detail ; Easy to set up and use

Sony SRS-X88 review

 

A talented wireless speaker bursting with features and a powerful, weighty sound...

Spacious and detailed sound ; Good amount of bass weight ; Potential for multi-room use

First class

 

I bought this speaker just over 2 months ago, to enable me to stream music from my walkman. The richness of sound is brilliant. It is so easy to connect via Bluetooth & I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I cannot fault this product.

Excellent piece of kit

 

I bought this for Xmas & New Year as an alternative to stream music rather than use my PS 2. It was incredibly easy to set up and to connect to my home wifi. The sound is great for such a small unit. I have yet to try hi res, but may wait til prices...
