"The hunt for excellent desktop speakers just got a little easier."
What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision have given a small but very good review on Monitor Audio's WS100 wireless speaker system. This is Monitor Audio's first try at creating wireless desktop speakers and What Hi-Fi? had plenty of good things to say.
"The WS100's die-cast aluminum cubes are a good size and feel reassuringly weighty and sturdy."
"In practice, we were treated to a reliable and robust connection - there was no signal breakup, even with the speakers and dongle in separate rooms."
"Considering their size, the WS100s are capable of greater scale and dynamics then many rivals at this price. Stream Childish Gambino's L.E.S. and the sealed boxes fire out a solid bass kick."
"Edges of notes are well defined while strings flow with an air of both subtlety and authority."
"Perched on a desktop or shelf, they can fire out a seriously good sound."
