The best speakers for PC, smartphone or iPod

PC Advisor reviews the best speakers you can buy in the UK today.

5. JBL OnBeat Xtreme

The JBL OnBeat Xtreme is available in the UK for around £399. It's definitely expensive but if you want a be-all end-all audio output solution for your iDevices, then you can't go wrong with the OnBeat Xtreme.

4. Denon Ceol

Available in white and black, the Denon Ceol is a stylish AV component with superb sound quality.

3. Pioneer X-SMC3-K

The X-SMC3-K from Pioneer packs a lot of features in a sleek, black, desktop-compatible micro system.

 

 

2. Orbitsound Soundbar T12v3

The Orbitsound Soundbar T12v3 is a versatile speaker system for playing sound from flat-panel televisions and iPods, possessing the kind of sound quality to get you nodding to the music. It’s not hi-fi as we know it, but it makes a great sound that will amply upgrade a TV’s own speakers, as well as engage you and your feet with music from your iPod.

 

1. Arcam rCube

The Arcam rCube matches a minimalist design aesthetic that Apple would be proud of, with sensational audio performance and smart wireless functionality. With a recent price drop it really does earn its five-star reviews.
