We’re terminally bored of so-called wireless speakers that promise sugar-coated musical thrills but actually deliver tasteless garbage that wouldn’t even pass the pre-auditions of the pre-auditions for Pop Idol.

But fear not. Hovering on the wireless horizon is the CD3500 speaker system from Canton. This eye-catching package consists of two towering, brushed aluminium speakers and a petite transmitter box.

Inside each tower you’ll find an integrated amp, tranceiver and volume control. (Because the speakers require power, you will have to connect them to the mains, so we use the term ‘wireless’ loosely.)

The accompanying transmitter plugs into your current hi-fi set-up and sends your tunes to any speakers positioned within its 25m range. Why not stick a couple in your back garden turn up the thrash metal and try your hand at a spot of worm charming and neighbour annoying?
