Amazon Tap Speaker

Amazon's Echo speaker has steadily grown in usefulness since its introduction, gaining the power to do things like order up an Uber car, check with Automatic to see if your car needs gas, and even order you a pizza from Dominos. Now the Amazon Tap Speaker is ready to give you all that power on the go. As the name suggests, you need to tap the microphone button to use it's Alexa-based interface, most likely to preserve battery life — you get a healthy nine hours of playback per charge, and it comes with a wireless charging base. Like the Echo, it's only going to get smarter over time, but you can still use it as a "dumb" Bluetooth speaker, and once you have your Tap, you can use it to buy the new hockey puck-like Dot and give these same voice superpowers to the dusty old speakers you already have.

  • Porsche Design 911 GT3 Soundbar

    It's certainly not going to fit in to most home decors. But if you consider yourself a true gearhead, the Porsche Design 911 GT3 Soundbar delivers great sound while serving as an undeniable conversation piece. The 200W speaker accepts audio via one analog and two digital inputs, as well as over Bluetooth with aptX, and has both Dolby Digital decoding and DTS TruSurround virtual surround sound. But it's the design that really stands out, using an original rear silencer and twin exhaust from a 911 GT3 as the case, with the ports helping to boost the bass. We can only hope it releases a throaty growl befitting its heritage when you turn it on.

  • Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 35 Wireless Speaker

    It's far wider than it is tall, but don't dare mistake the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 35 Wireless Speaker for a soundbar. Designed to look great whether it's on a stand or mounted on the wall, this high-end system has built-in touch controls that let you queue up a song from Spotify, Deezer, or TuneIn without touching an app, but also has AirPlay, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, and BeoLink Multiroom technology to bring in audio from other sources without a wire to be seen. It has two four-inch bass drivers for deep, room-filling sound, two tweeters angled outwards for a wider soundstage, and 80-watt class D amplifiers that provide all four speakers with plenty of power. Finished with a pentagonal aluminum cabinet and matching stand.
