Don’t for­get you’ll need to fac­tor-in how the speak­ers look with your home’s fur­nish­ings…

T3 - - State of the Art -

When it comes to cos­metic de­sign, wire­less sys­tems run the gamut from wacky to dull. The HEOS 7’s teardrop de­sign is more hand­bag than high-tech, while the HEOS 1 is rather an­gu­lar.

Yamaha plays it safe with the WX-010, and en­ter­tains only a mod­icum of retro chic with its Mu­sicCast mi­cro-sys­tem.

Ar­guably the best-look­ing wire­less speak­ers on test come from Pana­sonic. There’s no un­jus­ti­fi­able, im­prac­ti­cal sil­hou­ette here. Both the SC-All05 and the SC-All9 fea­ture clas­sic lines that are lifted by sub­tle, clever re­fine­ments. We like how the wa­ter­proof model has a slanted top with touch-sen­si­tive con­trols, while those chrome trims com­ple­ment the stock grille.
