We all love music – but your favorite song is only as good as the speaker it is played on. That is why we have decided to look at some of the most popular home stereo systems currently available on Amazon. We will cover three options: a more straightforward set-up, a middle-of-the-road option and a higher-end solution for your home’s stereo. With this comprehensive overview, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for.
1. Logitech Z623
If this is your first venture into home-speakers, the Logitech Z623 is likely for you. We are looking at a straightforward set-up of three speakers, manual controls and connectivity via an AUX cable. The sound is what might be called “intimate”, more suitable for small spaces – but rock-solid considering the entry-level price point. If you simply want to upgrade your TV, movie or gaming experience, or maybe just want to dip your feet into home-brew stereo, this is the product for you.
+ Three speakers
+ Straightforward set-up and design
+ Very affordable
– Somewhat outdated tech
2. LG CM4590 XBOOM
The LG CM4590 XBOOM is Amazon’s Choice for a reason: with three decently-sized speakers, this set-up packs a powerful punch, despite its relatively moderate price-point. Not only will the system link up to other LG products (such as your TV), it can also access your music via Bluetooth, AUX, USB, radio or even compact discs. Backed up by really solid ratings, this is an obvious contender for anyone considering a more elaborate home-entertainment system, while still not going overboard on both budget or complexity.
+ Plenty of sound
+ Value for money
– No frills
3. Sonos One SL Set
The future is here. If you are really serious about your home audio and want to leave the previous decade in the dust, Sonos is for you – and in all honesty, we could mention nearly every Sonos product here, but a set of One SL’s seems like a good start. You see, the whole point of Sonos is that their speakers are fully wireless, controlled via smartphone, download their own software and can connect to any other company products you may buy. Not satisfied with two speakers? Just get another one! No cables, no mess, no patchy Bluetooth – just pure bliss. Not to mention genuinely brilliant audio quality. However, this does come at a price and the company also is not open for negotiations on how one should enjoy their home stereo – if you already miss Bluetooth or AUX just reading this, Sonos is not for you.
+ Constantly updated tech and software
+ Flexibility in application/location of speakers
+ Superb sound
– Complete dependency on the Sonos App and settings
It is not easy to find the right home stereo system and the wide price-range can be intimidating for those that are new to the subject. While many more options are available, those listed above should give you a good overview of what a hobbyist audiophile is likely to get in to. Check out the links for yourself and see what matches your needs the most!
