And not just in products designed purely to be used at home: many can be powered by batteries alone, allowing you to venture into the wilds – or just your back garden – without having to leave your music behind.</p> <p>There’s no shortage of such speakers, but we’ve assembled the best below to save you the trouble of scouring the web.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sony SRS-BTM8 (£90) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It might look somewhat like your gran’s handbag from afar, but up close the Sony is a classy-looking Bluetooth-equipped unit that offers a huge amount considering its low cost. NFC allows you to swiftly pair up compatible phones and tablets: simply touch them to the speaker and the rest is handled for you. Non-Bluetooth sources can be connected via the 3.5mm audio jack. Battery duties are handled by four AAs, which deliver around 20 hours of music playback.</p> <p>With only 4W of power available, audio quality isn’t going to blow the wax out of your ears: there’s a notable thinness to the treble at higher volumes, for instance. The lower end frequencies, however, are handled surprisingly deftly and the system’s balance makes it quite suitable for mid-sized rooms.</p> <p>You can read our full review <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/bluetooth-speaker-system/sony-srs-btm8/review">here</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.sony.co.uk/product/mfi-wireless-speakers/srs-btm8">Sony</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony SRS-BTM8" alt="Sony SRS-BTM8" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-srs-btm8.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cambridge Audio Minx Go (£100) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The baby in Cambridge Audio’s Minx family, the Bluetooth-equipped Go lives up to its name by being brilliantly portable. While not the smallest of speakers, its battery charges in a mere two hours, after which it can serve up around 18 hours of audio playback.</p> <p>It also features a USB port that, when you’re using the mains, allows you to connect a phone, tablet or similar device for charging.</p> <p>And the audio quality? It’s simply far better than you’d expect from a speaker this size and price. Rich and warm, the sound lacks the tinny harshness that often afflicts smaller speakers, although there’s no shortage of power and range on offer. A truly brilliant option at an affordable price.</p> <p><a href="http://www.cambridgeaudio.com/products/minx-go-uk">Cambridge Audio</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Cambridge Audio Minx Go" alt="Cambridge Audio Minx Go" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/cambridge-audio-minx-go.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pure Digital Jongo S3 (£170) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Jongo’s appeal is two-fold: not only does it work as a wireless portable speaker (with 10 hours of audio playback via its built-in battery), it can also be set up as part of a multi-room music system.</p> <p>For multi-room, there’s no limit to how many Jongos you can add to the system and they can be set up with independent volume levels if you wish. They can also be set to play different tracks simultaneously, although in that case a different source device (i.e. phone or tablet) is required for each song.</p> <p>Wireless audio comes courtesy of either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, the latter being available when both a Jongo and a phone, tablet or computer are sharing a wireless network.</p> <p>And audio quality? The Jongo does a fine job with most material thanks to its taut, controlled bass, clear detail and lack of brightness in the high frequency range.</p> <p><a href="http://www.pure.com/product/jongo-s340b-vl-61996/">Pure Digital</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Pure Digital Jongo S3 " alt="Pure Digital Jongo S3 " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/pure-jongo-s3.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Libratone Zipp (£370) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Yes, it’s pricey, but the Zipp – so called because it, er, has a zip on the outside that allows you to whip off the fuzzy cover and replace it with a different coloured fuzzy cover – delivers excellent sound. Despite its diminutive size, the furry cylindrical speaker pumps out punchy beats and detailed vocals loud enough to fill a decent-sized room.</p> <p>It doesn’t support Bluetooth, instead offering a choice between AirPlay (compatible with iOS gear and any computer running iTunes), DLNA and Libratone’s proprietary PlayDirect. The latter allows you to set up a direct wireless connection from a PC or iOS or Android device, so you don’t need the Zipp and the source to be connected to the same home network. It also supports USB audio and there’s a 3.5mm port for wired stereo sources.</p> <p>The Zipp packs a four-hour battery, so its longevity isn’t quite as impressive as some others here. On the plus side, its leather strap makes it easy to carry around, and looks rather natty too.</p> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/libratone/libratone-zipp/review">Libratone</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Libratone Zipp" alt="Libratone Zipp" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/libratone-zipp.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> JBL Flip (£100) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Flip is another cylindrical speaker that can be set up either vertically or horizontally (we found it performs slightly better vertically, because the speaker is tilted more towards the listener’s ears). It’s a tidy, compact product with solid build quality and an unfussy design.</p> <p>It offers Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming (as well as a customary 3.5mm wired input), and features a built-in battery that’ll be good for around five hours of music playback (it takes about three hours to charge).</p> <p>The Flip benefits from what our chums at What Hi-Fi? describe as an “inviting, rhythmic delivery”. In spite of its diminutive size it presents a large, lively sound with clarity and dynamism and only a hint of harshness at the top end.</p> <p><a href="http://uk.jbl.com/jbl_product_detail_uk/jbl-flip-blk.html">JBL</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="JBL Flip" alt="JBL Flip" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jbl-flip.jpg?1383469381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Cambridge Audio Hi-Fi & Streaming JBL Libratone Lists Pure Sony Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:55:30 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1428614 at http://www.stuff.tv Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 http://www.stuff.tv/cambridge-audio/cambridge-audio-minx-air-200/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> This follow-up to Cambridge Audio&#039;s tasty wireless speaker, the Minx Air 100, is even more ear-lickingly impressive </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/cambridge-audio-minx-air-200-review.jpg?1370528800" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>It may not immediately attract the eye, but the Minx Air 200 certainly attracts the ear, especially when chucking out tunes at maximum volume, which is very loud indeed.

The company lets a single basic amplifier evolve into a variety of models depending on the situation: thus the Azur 540A is the junior sibling of another fine product, the 640A.</p> <p>The main difference? The 540A has a slightly reduced output of 50w per channel against the 640A’s 65w – and this goes hand in hand with a useful £100 off the price.</p> <p>Full metal jacket</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £199.95 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don’t be fooled by the price tag.
