They have a large variety of speakers, so if you can't find something there, you probably don't know what you want.

The Yaba X is an ultra portable vibration speaker from PLX Devices that has already achieved full funding through Kickstarter.

rocksteadyxs-6

Update: This review has been updated to reflect the 1.5 version of the hardware. See notes below. Full sized speakers will almost always sound better than smaller speakers, but sometimes smaller can be the way to go when space is a premium or portability is required. That's why we're seeing so many Bluetooth speakers popping [...]

iHome makes a lot of nice accessories for Apple products, and I've gotten to review quite a few things.  I've reviewed docking speakers and Bluetooth speakers, but the iW3 AirPlay Wireless Stereo Speaker System is the first AirPlay speaker from iHome that I've gotten to try.  As you know by now, I have a lot [...]

NuForce_Cube_Speaker_1

With the growing popularity of wireless speakers – both Bluetooth and AirPlay – many speaker companies have begun to release products that are redefining how we listen to music. Suddenly, there are very small speakers that can produce quality audio with decent bass. Until recently, this was almost unheard of. Jambox, Soundmatters, Braven, Scosche, Jabra, [...]

LG 300W Sound Bar System review

LG01

I do enjoy my 47" LCD TV, but the sound quality never seemed to equal that of the picture.  I realize that it's difficult to get any fidelity out of a couple of puny speakers, however, the alternative of getting a surround sound system was more than I wanted or needed, not to mention having [...]

original-marshall_hanwell_rgb_highres_09_7515

If you play a guitar, you’ve heard of Marshall amps. It’s hard to miss a rock photo from the 60s and 70s without some guitarist wailing in front of a wall of Marshall amps. Now, you don’t have to be a musician to feel that power. Marshall has introduced the Hanwell – its first consumer [...]

The Gramophone combines sculpture with sound to create a unique speaker system for the iPhone or iPad that will definitely turn heads (and ears). Designed to resemble a Victorian era phonograph, the base of the Gramophone is constructed of solid walnut and the horn is made of iron and brass. The interesting thing about this [...]

JBL_Soundfly_2

Maybe the JBL SoundFly is appropriately named. With Apple’s AirPlay technology, sound kinda flies from your iDevice to the speaker. There’s no wires, so how else is it going to get there? Now that Apple has nixed the 30-pin dock, it’s a given that AirPlay wireless speakers will only become more popular. New speakers seem [...]

Braven_600_7

I am quickly becoming a fan of portable audio speakers and docks. They are convenient and sometimes sound way better than their size would indicate. Last year, I reviewed the wonderful Soundmatters FoxL speaker which impressed everyone who heard it with its jaw-dropping sound. Later Jawbone released the Jambox, which is basically a reworked FoxL [...]

Cube_1

NuForce has added a cute and affordable speaker to the ever expanding portable audio market. Unlike the rectangular shaped Jambox or Soundmatters FoxL, the NuForce Cube is exactly that, a cube-shaped speaker small enough to carry with you.  (Click to enlarge the photos.) NuForce has added even more to this little wonder that makes it [...]
