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
REVIEW

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.

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.

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.

REVIEW

Yamaha YAS-203

The Yamaha YAS-203 breaks free of most of the performance constraints of budget sound bars, sounding bigger, more spacious, more dynamic and clearer than anything near its price.

PSB Imagine X1T
REVIEW

PSB Imagine X1T

The PSB Imagine X1T is a sweet-sounding speaker and very easy to listen to, but it lacks the gravitas of other similarly sized and priced towers.
