    Dali Kubik Free review

    By 3 April 2014

    Buying good speakers has never been cheap, if you want quality then you have to stump up a bit of cash. That said, we've never considered paying nearly £1,000 for a pair of Bluetooth speakers before. On the surface, that sounds ridiculous because you...

    Jabra Solemate review (second-gen)

    By 2 April 2014

    The Jabra Solemate is a portable Bluetooth speaker, back in its NFC-capable second-gen form. It might look more like a luminescent character from Pacman spliced with a Dr Martens sole but its design - which, as the name suggests, takes its cues from shoe...

    The Harman Kardon Aura may look like The Jetson's spaceship has collided with a ultra-modern kitchen blender but this quirky design housing is actually a wireless home speaker. If you're seeking a showstopper in speaker design that is also small and compact...

    Soundbars are one thing, but TV speaker bases are the latest trend in affordable home cinema sound. The Maxell MXSP-SB3000 Soundbar is a giant under-the-telly base with integrated subwoofers and speakers to boost that TV sound. But it goes a step further...

    Stelle Audio Pillar review

    By 15 January 2014

    The Stelle Audio Pillar certainly proves that Bluetooth speakers needn’t be small, plasticky pieces of kit with mediocre sound. This pillar-shaped speaker not only looks the part, the premium build of the device also kicks out the audio with gusto....
