Harman Kardon Citation 300

If you're shopping for a $400 speaker, you have options. Generally speaking, the Harman Kardon Citation 300 gets almost everything right—it's easy to use, with a screen that displays information in a clear, concise manner. The audio performance is...

Urbanears Rålis

I really like the sound of the Urbanears Rålis. It’s rich, deep, and smooth with good clarity. The bass is a bit boomy on most tracks I listened to, but not enough to be a serious drawback—heck, bass heads will love it! And the so-called Blumlein...

The LG SL10YG is a big soundbar that delivers an even bigger sound. Best suited to larger screen sizes, this super-smart speaker has Google Assistant built-in, and supports genuine immersive thanks to upward-firing drivers. Only a lack of eARC and...

Onn. Roku Smart Soundbar

Bottom Line: The Onn. Roku Smart Soundbar is a less expensive, Walmart-only version of the standard model, but cuts a few important corners to reach its lower price.

Harman Kardon Citation ONE

The Harman Kardon Citation One delivers a user-friendly experience through its simple manual controls as well as through Google Assistant. It also puts out some solid, bass-forward audio as well. The lack of wired connectivity is annoying (but not...

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Flex

For a mono speaker, the Bowers & Wilkins Formation Flex sounds wonderful. But for a $450 speaker? That's much harder to justify. First off, it has issues with deep bass at high volume levels, which isn't acceptable in this price range. In addition, the...

Anker Nebula Soundbar – Fire TV Edition review

While the Nebula’s built-in Fire TV and Alexa capabilities will make it an enticing choice for those who want an easy way to jumpstart their home theater, the soundbar’s muddy audio won’t please audiophiles. Yes, the soundbar can get pretty loud, and...

KEF Q350

The KEF Q350 bookshelf speaker looks exquisite, and sounds bigger and more expensive than it really is.

Bose SoundLink Mini II

It's pretty clear that the SoundLink Mini boosts bass, but mostly in the low-mids and lows rather than the sub-bass realm. In fact, sub-bass can get limited by the speaker's DSP, depending on the volume level. All this considered, this is probably the...

Bose SoundLink Revolve+ / Plus

Sonically, the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is a winner. And its solid, water-resistant build makes it a versatile party speaker. That said, like all Bose products, the Revolve+ feels a smidge overpriced at $300. For the same amount of money or less, we're...

Sonos Playbar

Sonos' Playbar is an expertly constructed, excellent-sounding soundbar, but at $700 it poses a significant challenge; it's hardly an impulse buy. Pair it with a Sub for a truly great home theater audio experience, and that tally rises to $1,300 or...

Bowers & Wilkins 607

For a small pair of speakers, they’re winsomely exuberant. Their scalpel-precise presentation won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but the Bowers & Wilkins 607 are bold, unapologetic and, it has to be said, rather wonderful for the money.

Sonos Sub

From our experience, the Sub is one of the better subwoofers in the field, wireless or otherwise. It adds forcefulness without turning the sound into mush. Making it worth the cash outlay is the challenge, even if it's much less of a problem than we...

Sonos PLAY:5 (2nd Gen, 2015)

The Play:5 is the best speaker Sonos has ever made. Its reliance on a single app for controlling all your audio services means the software experience isn't quite as slick as it could be, but it's easy to set up and sounds as good as its $499 price tag...

Purists seeking a flat response-style speaker won't be pleased with the SoundLink Revolve's pronounced boosting and sculpting in certain ranges, and booming bass fiends will want to seek out a larger speaker. The SoundLink Revolve+ doesn't offer...

Klipsch The Three

Overall, I am quite impressed with the sound quality of The Three. It has a clean, rich, well-balanced sound, though the soundfield does not extend beyond the cabinet. In addition, the sound seems to be coming from a box, giving it a slightly closed-in...
