4. Arcam rCube (Kleer)
Kleer streaming offers easy device connections and CD-quality audio, but with a hitch: Wireless streaming requires an additional 30-pin transmitter for our Touch and a USB dongle for our PC ($100 each). The splurge is mostly worth it, though. Pairing was easy, and audio quality rivaled the Zeppelin. Even when loud enough to upset the neighbors, the relentless horn blasts of Portishead’s “All Mine” never crossed over into shrill. Even better, the rCube was the most portable speaker in our test.
get-gadget: Handsome looks. Room-filling audio with negligible lag. iPod dock doubles as handle.
Tired: Way expensive. Transmitters not included. Proprietary streaming tech = dongles 4 life. $800, Arcam
