CNET's favorite speakers, including sound bars, Bluetooth speakers, and full surround sound systems.
The Philips HTB3525B packs Blu-ray, Smart TV, and Bluetooth into an affordable sound bar, making it a great choice if you're looking for an all-in-one system.
The Vizio S5451W-C2's extra-large sound bar and surround speakers deliver standout surround sound, if you can live with the size.
Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.
The HTC Surround features the high-quality design that we've come to expect from HTC, but the only thing its built-in speakers really add to the phone is weight. Unless you're set on the speakers, the Samsung Focus is a sleeker Windows Phone 7 device for AT&T with slightly better performance and options.
Vizio's S4251w-B4 sports rear speakers for unparalleled home theater sonics from a sound bar, although it has some quirks.
Panasonic's newly announced SC-NP10 Bluetooth speaker is designed to prop up and amplify tablets.
Philips announced at CES 2013 the Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100, calling it the world's first sound bar with battery-powered detachable speakers that operate over Bluetooth.
The Yamaha YAS-70's included subwoofer and affordable price tag make it a tempting choice for virtual surround fans, but it lacks the impressive sonics of its pricier Digital Sound Projector siblings.
