PSB Alpha VS21 VisionSound
The PSB Alpha VS21's skimpy feature lineup and so-so movie sound quality don't live up to expectations considering its hefty $600 list price.
Spotify Premium users who value sound quality and the convenience of controlling Spotify through their phone's native app will love the Gramofon.
The Sharp HT-SB602 offers plenty of features, a wide soundstage and high-energy movie playback, but its overall sound quality can't stand up to similarly priced rivals.
The Sony ST5 offers fine performance plus a decent mix of features, but it isn't the first sound bar we'd recommend for the price.
Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73-LR
The Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73-LR is, hands down, the very best-sounding bookshelf/surround speaker we've heard in its price class.
PSB Imagine X2T
The PSB Imagine X2T delivers big speaker sound, ideal for full-throttle home-theater thrills, without sacrificing refinement when reproducing music.
JBL Cinema SB 350 wireless sound bar
The JBL Cinema SB350 produces a wide soundstage and packs a mighty wallop for maximum home theater fun, but can sound harsh with music.
SVS Prime Satellite 5.1 System ( piano gloss)
The sleek, compact SVS Prime Satellite 5.1 System sounds tremendous with movies, thanks in large part to its potent subwoofer, but lacks warmth with music.
Beats Pill XL ( pink)
The combination of the Pill XL's strong sound, excellent design and feature set make it a reasonable value despite its elevated price tag.
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.
