    This little speaker is as cheap as it is tiny. Can something so small deliver true hi-fi sound?

    Castle's latest tower speaker turns in a performance that isn't going to be stormed by a usurper

    PMC Wafer 2 review

    PMC Wafer 2 review

    9  

    The typical comment made by industry insiders was "they can't possiblywork!" when they saw these hang-on-the-wall PMC speakers. They were wrong: the Wafer 2 most certainly is a real hi-fi speaker, even thoughit looks unlike the stereotypes.

    Focal Chorus 826 V review

    9  

    Focal has been making some radical changes to its entry-level loudspeakers. France's biggest speaker maker has divided Chorus V in two, creating the entry-level 700V range and the 800V 'affordable luxury' alternative

    Since its first egg-shaped TD512 Time Domain speaker, Eclipse has promised us a subwoofer fully in keeping with the thinking behind the company's satellites

    ATC SCM19 Hi-Fi review

    9  

    Gone are the SCM12, 20 and 35, and in come the SCM11, 19 and 40; only one original model number remains, although the new SCM7 bears little similarity to its predecessor.

    Goodmans GHC4200PRO review

    8  

    Goodmans' GHC4200PRO is a budget way to upgrade to a 5.1 surround sound system in one easy step. This package is clearly aimed at the budget end of the market, but it looks surprisingly good

    Canton CD201 review

    8  

    The CD201 system manages to combines all the important aspects of a good sub/sat system - solid build, ease of use and attractive looks. Attractive if you like aluminium.

    Monitor Audio Gold Signature 10 review

    9  

    The new Gold Signature range from Monitor Audio replaces the Gold Reference line-up, and you'll not be surprised to hear that the maker claims improvements in every area. In most cases, happily, there is no increase in price.

    Q Acoustics 1050 review

    9  

    Since this hefty floorstander is the largest and most costly of four stereo pairs, yet carries a surprisingly modest £330 price tag, this is very much a budget range. It's therefore no surprise to find it's made in China

    Nbien has four distinct ranges, and the three DX models include a centre channel and a floorstander alongside this small £250 per pair DX-5 standmount

    Mordaunt-Short Avant 908i review

    8  

    Mordaunt-Short's Avant 908i might look very similar to the Avant 906i from HFC 281, but the resemblance is largely superficial. The difference is clear when one attempts to lift this senior model from its carton

    9  

    The iQ3 is the larger of two iQ standmounts, and is based on a solitary 165mm Uni-Q drive unit - an exclusive KEF coaxial design - to handle the bass, midrange and treble. The enclosure features beautifully curved and tapered sides

    THX has been a fixture of the home cinema scene for over a decade, initially offering performance- enhancing parameters designed to make the most of fledgling technology (the original Pro Logic-centric specification)

    Castle Richmond 3i review

    8  

    The latest in a long line of relatively affordable Castle luxury miniatures, this latest Richmond is slightly larger than its predecessor, in order to compensate for the fact that some of the enclosure interior is now taken up with bituminous damping pads

    REL R-305 review

    9  

    The R-305, replacing the Q-201 but capable of 12dB extra acoustic output, is the second of three R-series models. The 19kg R-305 is a true compact, with a near cubic form factor and a footprint of a little over one square foot
