If you're someone who stores the majority of their music collection on a computer, but doesn't have a fully-fledged hi-fi system to play it through, you'll be all too aware of the poor sound quality computers tend to produce.
Luckily, there are several desktop speakers out there to combat this problem, and we've rounded up the best to help you decide which one is right for you.
Tested at £130
They look smart, sound terrific, deliver wireless music and cost just £130. It’s a no brainer, really. Hence our decision to name them the best desktop speaker under £200 at our 2015 Awards. If you’re after small, articulate, affordable desktop speakers with Bluetooth streaming, you can’t go wrong with the DS-1s.

You may think, given its design, the SRS-X9 isn't suitable to be a desktop speaker. But with a variety of connections, including aptX Bluetooth and AirPlay, we feel it could be a great solution to your computer audio needs.
Other inputs include line-in and USB, as well as an ethernet for connecting to a router to allow for DLNA streaming; 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution audio is also supported, making it a seriously flexible product.
The SRS-X9 produces solid, room-filling sound, despite its relatively small size. Overall sound is well balanced, with good warmth, texture and weight.

Those of a paranoid disposition might feel as though the TD-M1s are watching them. Yes, it’s a quirky design, but we’re more interested in the great stereo imaging, fine detail and fantastic precision, even if the treble could be a little clearer. A recent price cut to £799 makes them all the more enticing.
