This £990 Wireless Speaker Is Astonishing, But Not Always in the Best Ways

When I reviewed the £1,390 Devialet Phantom speaker three years ago, it blew my mind. The company just came out with a shrunken-down version for about half the price called the Phantom Reactor.

I don’t even think it’s my favourite. Read More >>

Of Course You Can’t Afford Bang & Olufsen’s Arty First Set of Wireless Speakers

Ah, Bang & Olufsen. We sometimes wonder if the Danish company's audio goods are made purely for the sake of teasing us peasants with beautiful press shots. Take its new Immaculate Wireless Sound range -- its speakers look like they could be art installation pieces, and are priced accordingly, extortionately. Who can afford this stuff? Read More >>
