Monster SoundStage S1

The Monster SoundStage S1 offers a huge, party-ready sound in a small box coupled with exhaustive connectivity, but subtle it is not.

Philips Flex ( Blue and Green)

The Philips Flex works OK for casual listening at midlevel volumes, but your dollar can go further with other models that sound much better.

REVIEW

Dayton Audio B452

While Dayton Audio's entry-level B452 bookshelf speaker's sound won't seduce too many audiophiles, it's remarkably satisfying for a speaker in its ultrabargain price class.

Oontz Curve by Cambridge SoundWorks
REVIEW

Oontz Curve by Cambridge SoundWorks ( Titanium Black)

Cambridge SoundWorks' Oontz Curve has some shortcomings and isn't head and shoulders above the rest of the tiny budget wireless Bluetooth speaker world, but you're not going to do too much better for $30.
