Bose® Home Speaker 500 Multi-room powered speaker with Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and built-in Amazon Alexa

Most budget-friendly — Bose® Home Speaker 500

Bose® speakers are famous for quality sound and user-friendly operation. The Home Speaker 500 multi-room powered speaker delivers on both counts. Its speakers are angled to project a full 360° sound field. The built-in digital display shows artist info, album art, audio source, and more.

The system has Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control built in, letting you control the speaker with just your voice (and providing additional entertainment options.) Six preset top-mounted buttons let you return to your favorite internet radio station, or streaming service without using your smartphone.

Details

  • Connects wirelessly via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth
  • Apple AirPlay 2 lets you stream directly from an iPhone or iPad and ask Siri to play Apple Music
  • Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control

  • Two custom drivers mounted 180° apart for room-filling sound

Cleer Crescent Smart speaker

You can also stream directly to the Crescent using your phone's Bluetooth. The speaker lets you choose from three sound modes: Stereo Widening for two-channel stereo music, 3D for virtual surround sound with movies and games, and Room Fill for an ultra-wide soundfield.

You can use them with other Formation speakers to create a wireless multi-room audio system. The speakers use their own mesh network (rather than your home Wi-Fi) to ensure sufficient bandwidth for high-res audio streaming.

Details

Devialet Phantom II 98db Opéra de Paris Wireless powered speaker system

Most unique — Devialet Phantom II 98db Opéra de Paris

The sophisticated styling of the Devialet Phantom II 98 db Opéra de Paris wireless powered speaker gives notice that this is no ordinary speaker.

The high-performance Phantom's frequency response extends both above and below the range of human hearing for exceptionally detailed and realistic sound. Plus, it's driven by 400 watts RMS. It delivers distortion-free music at all volumes levels — even at its maximum, 98dB.

McIntosh is renowned for its superior sound and superb craftsmanship. The RS100 wireless loudspeaker system draws on that heritage, presenting an attractive retro-style wireless speaker.

The cabinet features a high-gloss finish and a clear acrylic front. Large control knobs and the signature blue meter pay homage to McIntosh's classic hi-fi gear. A 3/4" titanium tweeter and 3" long-throw woofer deliver clear, accurate sound. A rear-firing port reinforces low tones.

Since 1961, KEF has been producing beautifully styled speakers that deliver beautiful sound. Their LS50 Wireless II powered stereo speakers feature curved front baffles with a modern, stylish look.

KEF placed the tweeter inside the center of the bass/midrange cone. This enlarges the speakers' acoustic "sweet spot," giving you more options for room placement. Two custom-designed amplifiers in each speaker plus an advanced digital-to-analog converter ensure richly detailed natural sound.
