#17 Sony SRS-ZR7 wireless speaker

About  $300.00

A wireless, home and DLNA-compatible Wifi and Bluetooth speaker system from Sony with NFC and analog audio inputs

Detailed Test Results

Sound quality: Sony's SRS-ZR7 had good sound quality overall. Bass has good impact and goes fairly deep but is a bit prominent and boomy. Midrange is fairly even but is a bit "dark" and soft. Treble is subdued and upper treble is muted. So-so recovery of room ambience, sounds somewhat congested, and lacks fine detail. No significant difference between Wifi, Bluetooth, wired, USB and HDMI sound quality except that bass is somewhat pronounced when wired. Provides a decent volume level in a medium sized room. When two units are used as a stereo pair sound quality remains somewhat congested and "dark", it can get louder but since two separate speakers are used the sound stage can be made wider depending on placement and room ambience improves to decent, sound quality remains good.

Ease of use: We found the system's ease of use to be good overall. Bluetooth pairing was very easy. Connecting to a Wi-Fi network was very easy if you have a router with WPS capability. Connecting to a Wi-Fi network was fairly easy (download the free SongPal app on your Apple or Android mobile device and follow instructions which may require network password entry). Touch controls are prominent but are medium contrast and can get difficult to read under certain lighting conditions. Console lacks mute control. Source button that is prominent and clearly labeled and clearly indicates with backlit words which source has been selected. Remote control app is very good overall.

#18 Marshall Stanmore wireless speaker

About  $350.00

A Bluetooth wireless home speaker system with an analog audio input.

Detailed Test Results

Sound quality: Marshall's Stanmore had good overall sound quality. Bass has decent impact and goes fairly deep, but is uneven and lacks some definition. Midrange is fairly even and a bit warm, but smoothed-over and gritty. Lower and mid-treble are even, while upper treble is somewhat rolled off. The speaker does a so-so job of recovering room ambience, or a sense of the acoustic space in which a recording is made. It also lacks treble air and fine detail, and sounds constricted and a bit congested. We found no significant difference in sound quality whether we used a wireless Bluetooth, optical and wired connection. The speaker can provide a decent volume level in a small to medium-sized room.

Ease of use: This speaker was exteremely easy to use, perhaps the easiest of all the tested models. Bluetooth pairing was simple, and the controls on the unit are extremely easy to use. This unit lacks a remote which isn't an issue if the speaker is close by or if it's being used with a mobile Bluetooth device that's acting as a remote, but it could be inconvenient in other situations.

#19 Grace Digital GDI-BTSP201 wireless speaker

About  $150.00

A Bluetooth wireless home speaker system with an analog audio input.

Detailed Test Results

Sound quality: Grace Digital's GDI-BTSP201 had good overall sound quality. Bass has lots of impact, but is somewhat pronounced and boomy, and deep bass is lacking. Midrange is fairly even and a bit warm but hazy, a bit gritty, and somewhat overwhelmed by the bass. Treble is extended but uneven and can sound a bit sizzly with some program material. This model does a so-so job of recovering room ambience-- a sense of the acoustic space of where the recording was made--and lacks treble air, sounds a bit congested, and lacks fine detail. There was no significant difference in sound quality whether a wired or Bluetooth connection was used. Because the system consists of two separate speakers, they can deliver better stereo separation than many other models. The speakers were able to provide a decent volume level in a small to medium-sized room.

Ease of use: The speaker system was very easy to use. Bluetooth pairing was easy, and the controls on the unit are obvious and adequately positioned. The two speakers require a wired connection, but the included speaker wires were not prepped (you have to trim the insulation or attach banana plugs or otjer connectors) and the instructions for wiring were incomplete. This unit lacks a remote which isn't an issue if the speaker is close by or if it's being used with a mobile Bluetooth device that's acting as a remote, but it could be inconvenient in other situations.

#20 Edifier Luna Eclipse wireless speaker

About  $200.00

A wireless Bluetooth portable speaker system with an analog audio input.

Detailed Test Results

Sound quality: Edifier's Luna Eclipse e25 had very good overall sound quality. Bass has good impact and goes fairly deep, but midrange is somewhat nasal and lacks some warmth. Treble is prominent and slightly sizzly. The speakers do a decent job of recovering room ambience--a sense of the acoustic space where the recording was made--and bass and midrange sound somewhat constricted. The sound quality was similar whether a Bluetooth or wired connection was used, though the latter had slightly more bass impact. Because these are two separate speakers, they can be placed far enough away from each other to provide better stereo separation than many other models. This system can provide a decent volume level in a small to medium-sized room.

Ease of use: The system's ease of use was good overall. Bluetooth pairing was very easy. Touch controls, located on the side of the unit, are a bit hard to find but have decent contrast. But they're multifunction controls with unlabeled alternate functions, so it's not always easy to determine what they are used for. And because of their placement, they're prone to being accidentally activated when you're handling the speaker. This unit comes with a simple remote that has power on/off and volume control; which is not useful if its being used with a mobile Bluetooth device which can be used like a remote itself, but convenient in other situations.
