REVIEW

Sharp HT-SB602

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.

Sony HT-ST5

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.

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.

REVIEW

Fluance XLHTB ( cherry wood)

The Fluance XLHTB is a head-turning set of speakers at a reasonable price, and while it sounds perfectly fine in a home theater context, it lacks the performance subtleties peers can offer.

Harman Kardon Esquire Mini
REVIEW

Harman Kardon Esquire Mini ( brown)

The Harman Kardon Esquire Mini is a great-looking micro Bluetooth speaker that works quite well as a speakerphone, but is bass-challenged, so it isn't much of a music speaker.
