Monitor Audio Airstream S150 review: Simply brilliant sound quality

"Simple and slightly odd-looking, but this mains-powered Bluetooth speaker is a winner as far as sound quality is concerned.

For those who don't follow the British hi-fi scene, Monitor Audio is a long-established native builder of passive loudspeakers. The kind of boxes audiophiles attached to their expensive amplifier-and-CD player setups when CD was exciting new technology."

S150 - Expert Reviews Best Buy

Avid tech reviewer Richard Easton has investigated the S150, analysing both the design and performance of our compact but mighty bluetooth speaker:

"there was plenty of deep, controlled thump to the bass, far exceeding what I expected for a speaker of this size."

Our deceptively powerful speaker quickly displayed its ability across a number of tracks, refusing to falter when pushed to it's maximum volume. With it's stylishly simple design and surprising ability the S150 soon earned the Best Buy title:

"The Airstream S150’s outstanding simplicity grants it a certain overall charm. It’s completely unfussy in both its design and use, and if all you want is an easy way to play music from a wired or Bluetooth source with fantastic sound quality and a more than reasonable price, it’s a tough one to beat."
