REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

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.

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.

REVIEW

Vizio S2121w-D0

The Vizio S2121w-D0 Sound Stand is cheap but not a good value, with quality that pales against the competition -- including Vizio's own sound bars.
