Sonos Arc

Simple to set up, lovely to live with and supremely capable, the Sonos Arc is a soundbar of rare quality

Sonos Move

This is by far the most luxe, water-resistant, rugged 'portable' speaker (it's hefty) ever - and it's got Alexa and Google Assistant inside

Sony HT-G700

The Sony HT-G700 is big on sound and on value – for cinematic scale and weight, there are few better soundbars at the price

Amazon Echo (4th gen, 2020)

The new Amazon Echo is the best yet for features, but it's not necessarily the best smart speaker for everyone

Bang & Olufsen Beosound A1 (2nd Gen)

It might be small and rather pricey, but the second-gen Beosound A1 packs a big punch in the sound department. That, plus Alexa voice control and waterproofing, makes it worth every penny.

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...

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.

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...

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.

The Mu-so Qb retains an inherently likeable presentation, but has matured over the three years since its first generation.

Denon Home 350

This big and powerful wireless speaker produces an accomplished sonic performance. It’s not exactly discreet, but superior build quality, a host of useful features and a surprising amount of bass make it a great choice for music fans.

Samsung HW-Q90R

Builds on last year’s award-winning N950 to deliver a genuine object-based audio experience, this new soundbar boasts rear channels, four upward-firing drivers and a beefed-up subwoofer – making it ideal for Atmos and DTS:X object-based audio. It's a...

Samsung HW-Q70R

The Samsung HW-Q70R is an excellent midrange soundbar and subwoofer combo that delivers a big and bold, if rather front-heavy Atmos and DTS:X performance. This makes it ideal for film fans and gamers, while the solid build quality and decent features...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay P6

Having used it for a little while and keeping the Katch on hand by way of comparison, I am forced to reach the conclusion that Bang & Olufsen feels that given the size, driver compliment and likely material being sent to the P6, it doesn’t need to have...

LG XBoom Go PL7

It may not offer the level of audio detail or balance that the B&O A1 2nd Gen does, nor the water resistance of either the UE Megaboom 3 or JBL Charge 4, but the XBOOM Go PL7 is a great all-rounder capable of getting any socially-distanced party started.

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...

JBL PartyBox 300

When I first saw the JBL PartyBox 300 Bluetooth speaker, I was very eager to try it. From the first time I saw the pictures, I kept looking at them over and over again. I did see it in my mind as a bit smaller than it is. I preferred a larger speaker,...
