    Does the lack of a dedicated subwoofer hinder the performance of this soundbar?

    This speaker might look old-fashioned, but that's really the whole point of Spendor's Classic range

    Klipsch HD Theater 500 review

    8  

    The popularity of this type of compact speaker package has mostly been driven by the switch from CRTs to flatscreen TVs. For, while the case for flatscreen TVs is overwhelming on most counts, sound quality has suffered because even large flatpanels don't lend themselves to good acoustic design.

    KEF T-Series T205 review

    10  

    KEF's new T-Series range of home cinema speakers are definitely a sign of the times. They've been designed with a clear purpose in mind – to be an aesthetic match to newer, thinner, flatscreen TVs, enabling buyers to couple their hi-def movies with authentic 5.1 sound without their living room looking like a branch of Sevenoaks.

    Monitor Audio Bronze BX Series review

    The BX Bronzes are somewhat unemotive, and while shiny and pretty-sounding, they appear to play through a letterbox of narrow dynamics and scale with horribly low efficiency.

    This is very fine little speaker, which both sounds and measures rather well. Even though it wasn't ideally matched to our listening room, its sound quality still did a great deal to justify the increasingly popular standmount approach

    We test drive the new MX5, a low-cost, high-value speaker that's as easy to drive as its sporty Mazda namesake
