Thinking about replacing your existing dock system or searching for portable options to fit in your pocket? Take a look at our list of the best Bluetooth speakers of 2016...

Sometimes only a full-fledged hi-fi separates system will do. But what about those times when you want straightforward convenience, music in a smaller room, or even a bit of portability? You can’t take a kit-rack to the park, after all (and you’d need the mother of all mains leads)…

One solution is a wireless Bluetooth speaker, which will free the tunes on your computer, phone or tablet without the need for any wires (or Wi-Fi). We've rounded-up the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy in 2016, including all our 2015 What Hi-Fi? Award-winners, (and some of the best of 2014 and 2013).

Some can replace your existing iPod/iPhone dock system, others are mini portable options that fit right in your pocket, while some are just bargains if you're on a budget. There's even a Sonos-rivalling multiroom Bluetooth speaker. Crucially, they all wowed our testing team...

Naim's Mu-so not only picked up a wireless speaker gong at the 2015 Awards, but it also managed to scoop the Readers’ Award.

This sizeable wireless speaker has a rich, powerful sound, huge sense of scale and soaring dynamics. If you're looking for a premium wireless speaker, then look no further.

The quirky Pure Jongo S3 looks about as far as you can get from traditional hi-fi equipment but it still manages to fall in line with decent traditional kit in performance, though. 

You can stream using Bluetooth via the included dongle, which plugs in to the back of the unit. Wi-fi streaming is also on the menu via the free Pure Connect app for iOS and Android. Best of all, you can connect multiple Jongos (there's also a Jongo T2) together for a multi-room set-up via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, which sets it apart from rivals.
