Looking to upgrade the sound from your computer? We've rounded up the best desktop speakers on the market, from under £200 right up to £1000, including some wireless models...

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.

Sony SRS-X9

Reviewed on 6th May 2014 at

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.

Eclipse TD-M1

Reviewed on 22nd July 2014 at

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.
