At £30 the Chromecast Audio is almost a no-brainer. It enables users to stream their phones to any old speakers and because it uses Wi-Fi it doesn't have the same issues as Bluetooth such as battery drain, dropouts and poor sound quality.
The Sonos Play:1 is a big step up from your average wireless speaker. It's offered in both white and blue options, and both support streaming music services including Spotify, Amazon Cloud Player, Google Music, 7Digital, Deezer, Soundcloud and Napster.
The most affordable Pro-Ject turntable, the Elemental, is a step above the "toys" you see in the sub-£100 category. This record player features striking looks and a decent cartridge as well, for just £159.
Jawbone has proven itself a valuable addition to the family. It's not cheap but it proves its worth with excellent sound quality and volume, nine different colour options and a super-lightweight build at just 255 grams.
