Cleer Crescent Smart speaker

Most elegant design — Cleer Crescent

The Cleer Crescent smart speaker resembles its namesake — the crescent moon. It has Google Assistant built-in, so you can verbally command the speaker to play tunes from your favorite streaming service (or just find out the weather).

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.

Details

  • Connects wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth
  • Apple AirPlay 2 lets you stream directly from an iPhone or iPad and ask Siri to play Apple Music
  • Voice control via Google Assistant built-in
  • Eight 1-1/2" full-range drivers and two 3-1/4" bass drivers

Most versatile — Q Acoustics Q Active 200 system

Q Acoustics is a relatively young British company that's been making waves in audiophile circles. Their Q Active 200 system features a central hub for control and signal input.

By keeping these electronics out of the speakers, Q Acoustics eliminated a primary source of electrical interference, resulting in an exceptionally clean, clear sound. Each speaker has two drivers and a subwoofer — each individually powered for optimal performance.

  • Apple AirPlay 2 lets you stream directly from an iPhone or iPad and ask Siri to play Apple Music

The Formation Duo powered speaker system features high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz streaming, for exceptionally clear and accurate sound.

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

  • 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

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 RS1000

Best audiophile-grade wireless speaker — McIntosh RS250

McIntosh is renowned for its superior sound and superb craftsmanship. The RS250 wireless loudspeaker system draws on that heritage, presenting an attractive retro-style wireless speaker with super-solid build-quality and refined, powerful sound.

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. Dual three-way speakers — each sporting a 3/4" titanium tweeter, four 2" titanium inverted midrange drivers, and two 4" x 6" long-throw woofers — powered by a burly 650 watts of assertive power deliver detailed muscular sound.

The RS250 connects to your home Wi-Fi network or via Ethernet. Apple Airplay 2 and Chromecast built-in lets the RS250 be a part of a compatible multi-room audio system. It's even got a moving magnet phono input.

Details

  • Connects wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth
  • works with Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Spotify HiFi, TIDAL Connect, and Roon (subscription required for some services)
  • two 4" x 6" long-throw woofers, four 2" titanium inverted midrange drivers, and two 3/4" titanium dome fluid-filled tweeters
  • classic blue McIntosh illuminated front-panel power output meters

If you have a library of high-resolution digital music, the Bluesound PULSE 2i streaming music speaker can do it justice. This high-performance speaker is compatible with high-res files up to 24-bit/192kbps.

You can use the PULSE 2i with high-res services such as TIDAL, and it's compatible with MQA. The PULSE 2i can be part of a Bluesound multi-room audio system — which means you can enjoy high-quality audio all through your home.

KEF LS50 Wireless II Powered stereo speakers

Best all-around — KEF LS50 Wireless II

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.
