  1. Amphion Prio 520 review

    Amphion Prio 520 review

    9  

    Amphion is a Finnish brand that has been in existence for about a decade. Its speakers have tended to be relatively upmarket as well as notably stylish affairs.

    MonoPulse 42A review

    MonoPulse 42A review

    9  

    It's less than five years since we first encountered MonoPulse, as a relatively new brand with a number of interesting and unconventional ideas about loudspeaker design. Patron and hi-fi enthusiast Allan Hendry, worked for many years on pulsed, phased-array radar and after his retirement, applied his appreciation of the importance of phase relationships to loudspeaker design.

    Wharfedale Opus2-M1 review

    9  

    The Opus2 M1is the entry-level model in the range, but still costs £1,000 plus an additional £300 for the (optional) column stands

    Triangle Genese Quartet review

    Triangle Genese Quartet review

    9  

    Though expensive, the Quartet is certainly a whole lot of speaker for the money, with a selection of ingredients that put the rest of this test group in the shade.

    Tannoy Arena Lite review

    Tannoy Arena Lite review

    8  

    Don’t be put off by the ‘lite’ tag. These diminutive Tannoy speakers are the more affordable siblings of the award-winning Arena package and come with an enviable technical heritage.

    Eclipse TD307 II review

    Eclipse TD307 II review

    8  

    Willfully ignoring the maxim that speakers should have a flat baffle, at least two drivers and be vaguely box-shaped, Eclipse collects its 21st century style gold star with ease.

    Martinlogan Fresco i/Dynamo system review

    10  

    Watching the loudspeaker industry struggling to cope with the demands of flatscreen television displays has been an unedifying sport.

    Audio Pro All-Room Pro review

    This Swedish entry is a light and affordable system– and certainly one of the funkiest looking around.

    Edifier M3200 review

    Edifier M3200 review

    7  

    Edifier was an unknown name to us until a box arrived from PC Nextday containing a set of M3200 speakers. They look rather strange because the two satellites are very tall and slender and have the appearance of a pair of vases

    Genius SW-Flat 2.1 700 review

    Genius SW-Flat 2.1 700 review

    6  

    The Genius SW-Flat 2.1 700 aren't like any other speakers here and look a bit weird. As you may have guessed from the model name, Genius is putting a certain emphasis on the flatness of this set of 2.1 speakers - an aim it has achieved as the subwoofer and satellites are indeed fairly flat

    Acoustic Energy Aego M-System review

    Acoustic Energy Aego M-System review

    9  

    Acoustic Energy is a British company that makes Hi-Fi speakers and this has led to some significant differences when you compare its Aego M series speakers with more typical PC and laptop kit.

    Mordaunt-Short Alumni review

    Mordaunt-Short Alumni review

    8  

    Mordaunt-Short has crafted an enviable reputation in the world of sub/sat speaker systems. Both its Premier and Genie packages have been universally well-received, but compared with the new Alumni, they now just seem lacking

    Denon DHT-FS3 review

    Denon DHT-FS3 review

    6  

    Denon's first foray into the increasingly-crowded soundbar arena, the X-Space DHT-FS3, is at least a stylish entrant, with a piano black finish and curved main speaker unit that is considerably more slender than rival models we've seen from Philips and Yamaha.

    AVI ADM9 review

    AVI ADM9 review

    9  

    AVI is moving inexorably away from being simply one of the better names in hi-fi. AVI still produces its standard - and very well received - range of electronics and loudspeakers, but is now intent on leading the charge in bringing computer music into our little fold

    Monitor Audio Platinum PL300 review

    9  

    There was a time when much of the best loudspeaker technology emanated from the UK - but sadly, those days are mostly over. With the singular exception of B&W, most truly interesting and high-class loudspeaker design now comes from North America, the Far East and elsewhere in Europe.

    Griffin Amplifi review

    7  

    Griffin's Amplifi is a mid-priced iPod speaker system with plenty of volume, is very simple to use and will tuck away on a desktop or table without taking up too much space

    JVC TH-D7 review

    This system certainly gives you a lot of box for your buck, with five separate speakers and an active sub in addition to the centre unit. You even get metal and MDF stands for the front speaker pair

    Mordaunt-Short Alumni review

    Performance and affordability are key requirements for anyone seeking out a home cinema speaker package, and Mordaunt-Short seem to have struck the right balance with its new Alumni speaker range

    ATC SCM16A review

    9  

    Despite the assertions of many loudspeaker designers that they are the future, and regardless of their considerable success in the pro-audio world, they just haven't caught on.

    Yamaha YSP-900 review

    9  

    The YSP-900 is a third-generation model from Yamaha's acclaimed range of Sound Projectors. It's the smaller of the two surround speaker systems currently in the range and is ideally suited towards 32in and 37in flatscreen TVs

    TwinMOS BooM1 2.1 audio system review

    TwinMOS BooM1 2.1 audio system review

    9  

    These great-value iPod speakers sport a minimalist look. Although its long, bicycle handlebar shaped dock can be hooked-up to an included (and rather stylish) subwoofer, it doesn't quite create the mess of cabling that blights similar efforts.

    Scandyna Micropod SE review

    Scandyna Micropod SE review

    8  

    Scandyna is really into desktop audio. For PC and Mac users in particular, this Micropod SE 2.1 system offers far better sound quality than any regular computer speaker set-up and can even be used as good traditional end-of-the-room stereo
