A committed Apple fan eager to eschew Bluetooth? These are our favourite AirPlay speakers.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speakers have largely replaced AirPlay speakers in our affections, with fewer and fewer products on the market.

But should you want to keep your Apple Music experience entirely on brand, these are your best options.

You can connect the AeroSphère Small via aptX Bluetooth, AirPlay or DLNA, and there’s the option of analogue connection via its 3.5mm jack too. As well as packing in the features, this wireless speaker delivers a dynamic, nicely-balanced sound, and there's even the option to create a simple multi-room system.

B&W Zeppelin Wireless

Reviewed on 17th March 2016 at
£500

Eight years after it launched, the B&W Zeppelin remains a fine choice. This latest incarnation sports AirPlay, aptX Bluetooth and Spotify Connect, as well as its trademark appearance, and crucially throws out a large but precise sound that's full of expression.

Geneva AeroSphère Large

Reviewed on 15th March 2016 at
£650

This is as close to hi-fi as we've heard a wireless speaker get at this price. The bigger brother of the 'Small', see above, Geneva has succeeded in bridging the gap between kitchen-top speakers and much more expensive kit, providing a top-notch sound to complement its smart design.

Naim Mu-so

Reviewed on 10th October 2014 at
£895

The Mu-so isn't solely an AirPlay speaker, but it has the function and so deserves a place in this list. If you have the money to spend on a wireless speaker, we can't recommend this enough. The Mu-so delivers music with power, rhythm and dynamics. No matter what source of music you choose to throw at it, the Mu-so never sounds too bright.
