Sonos Move

It’s pricey, but the portable Sonos Move justifies every penny with its smart connectivity and living-room worthy sound. It’s just a shame it can’t be used in a surround sound system.

Denon DHT-S716H

The DHT-S716H’s lack of Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, or even DTS:VirtualX support does give us pause given the rapid rise of object-based 3D audio for both movies and music. That said, I’m blown away that a 3.0-channel soundbar without a subwoofer could sound...

I’ll be the first to admit that you can spend thousands of dollars on speakers, a dedicated receiver, and cables to tie it all together, and it will sound better than the Elevate. But for $1,000? I don't think you can beat the cost and convenience of...

Klipsch The Fives

The Fives are obviously a high-quality product, derived from more than seven decades of speaker excellence. The sound is smooth, refined, and sophisticated, though it’s tipped slightly toward the bass and away from the mids and highs. And the bass can...

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2019)

Basically a shrunken Echo Show, the new Echo Show 5 is far easier to place than its big brother, making it the ideal bedside companion or just for use where you don't have a lot of room. The new interface is largely a success and the smart home...

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2019)

At a significantly cheaper price than the larger Echo Show, the Show 8 has most of its appealing features and is also a significant step up from Echo Show 5. We think it's the best Alexa screen device yet.

Marshall Emberton

As a Bluetooth speaker this little banger delivers sound well beyond its small frame. But the real appeal is the classic Marshall styling - not only does it sound good, it's got distinction to stand out among the crowd of boring suit-n-ties speakers.

Huawei Sound X

For all this speaker does right on the wall of sound front, its sonic adeptness doesn't quite seal the deal at this price point - and we'd expected more eloquence from a Devialet collaboration. It's also not smart and too expensive considering the...
