These pre­mium wire­less speak­ers show­case the many ca­ble-free ways you can con­nect to your mu­sic

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Contents -

Fea­tur­ing pre­mium mod­els from Au­dio Pro, B&O, B&W, KEF, Naim and Sonos, these are the best wire­less speak­ers and sys­tems on the mar­ket right now

The Blue­tooth speaker is pretty much ubiq­ui­tous now. What, just a decade or so ago, would have seemed like witch­craft or science fic­tion is now com­mon­place and ev­ery­day. To­day, ev­ery­one wants and ex­pects the con­ve­nience of a tether-free con­nec­tion. (In­deed, on cer­tain mo­bile phones we no longer seem to have much of a choice…)

Nev­er­the­less, as is the way with these things, there’s wire­less and there’s wire­less. It’s per­fectly pos­si­ble to buy a func­tion­ing wire­less speaker for less than £100 – and it will do a de­cent job for the money. But if you want sound that truly nears hi-fi qual­ity to go with the con­ve­nience, you need to in­vest a bit. Which is where this round-up comes in.

Over the next few pages, we present our pick of the best pre­mium speak­ers and sys­tems that can make the most of your mu­sic, while also of­fer­ing the con­ve­nience of streaming and wire­less abil­i­ties, to give you the best of both worlds. There are Award-win­ners and old favourites here, from all the ma­jor brands en­joy­ing suc­cess in this sec­tor of the mar­ket.

Whether it’s the clas­sic Zep­pelin from Bow­ers and Wilkins or the new LSX from KEF – very dif­fer­ent and more of a stereo sys­tem com­pared with the other equip­ment here – there will be a prod­uct in these pages that will tick most of your boxes. And, which­ever item you choose to in­vest in, you can rest as­sured you’ll be in pos­ses­sion of some­thing that sounds sim­ply su­perb.
