Best AirPlay speakers of 2014Updated August 6, 2014 2:03 PM PDT
While AirPlay can offer better sound quality than Bluetooth, it's still hard to recommend many of these speakers due to their high price. Also note that AirPlay is an Apple-only affair: only iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches, and PCs and Macs running iTunes will be able to stream audio to AirPlay speakers. By comparison, Bluetooth speakers work with both iOS devices and the vast majority of smartphones and tablets, and typically offer a better value.
