让爱家充满动听音乐,不妨试试这5款无线音响系统

Chris Morris 2017年02月22日

不论是招待朋友,还是想在家中自娱自乐,用智能手机或电视让房间充满动听音乐,总是能营造出更好的氛围。

音乐让房子更有家的感觉。

不论是招待朋友,还是想在洗碗的时候自娱自乐,用智能手机或电视让房间充满动听音乐,总是能营造出更好的氛围。但市面上的无线音箱品种繁多,令人难以选择。

无线音箱的价格从几美元(往往音质较差,音量较小)到数千美元(通常音效出色,但高昂的价格则会压缩娱乐预算)不等。但也有一些中间价位的音箱,凭借出色的频率范围和灵活性,让你兴奋不已。

下面几款音箱值得购买:

Music makes a house a home.

Whether you're entertaining friends or just looking for a distraction as you do the dishes, a room full of sound—streamed from your smartphone or your TV—always makes it better. But with so many wireless speakers on the market, it can be a baffling choice.

Prices can range from just a few dollars (almost always resulting in a thin, tiny sound) to multiple thousands of dollars (which are usually great, but leave significantly less room in the budget for entertaining). There are, however, several great speakers in the middle of that spectrum that will blow your socks off with their range and flexibility.

Here are a few to consider:

Sonos Play

Sonos奠定了无线家庭音响系统的基础,并且依旧在业内占据主导地位。公司提供的三款音箱各有优点。199美元的Play 1价格更便宜,但并非电池供电。Play 3的售价为299美元,在音质上有显著提高,并且体积适中。

而要想寻找纯净的音质,499美元的Play 5是最好的选择。Play 5在去年进行了升级:音箱体积更大,能带来更出色的低音效果;三个高音扬声器和中频低音扬声器,可以带来非凡的音质。它也是唯一一款支持3.5 毫米输入的Sonos音箱,这意味着你可以离线听音乐。

这三款设备均支持播放Spotify和Tidal等主流服务提供的流媒体音乐,同时还支持亚马逊(Amazon)等基于云的音乐存储网站。所有音箱均通过Sonos应用控制。哪一款才是最佳选择,取决于你想要一套在整栋房子内使用的音响设备,还是只安装在一个房间,不过每一款Play音箱都有各自的亮点。

Sonos Play

Sonos laid the groundwork for the wireless home audio market, and it's still the 500-pound gorilla in the metaphorical room. The company offers a trio of speakers, each with its own merits. The $199 Play 1 is notably cheaper, but isn't battery powered. Play 3, which runs $299, offers a significantly improved sound quality and has a moderate footprint.

If you're looking for pure sound performance, the $499 Play 5 is the way to go. Updated last year, it has a larger cabinet, meaning better bass sounds, and three tweeters and mid-range woofers, resulting in phenomenal sound quality. It's also the only Sonos with a 3.5mm input, meaning you can listen offline.

All three devices let you stream music from major services like Spotify and Tidal, as well as cloud-based music storage sites like Amazon (amzn). Those are all controlled via the Sonos app. The best model for you will likely depend on if you're interested in a whole-home audio setup or a single room, but each of the various Play models has something to offer.

Riva Audio Turbo X

Riva的创始人是音乐行业的传奇人物瑞奇·法尔,他曾为甲壳虫乐队(The Beatles)、齐柏林飞艇(Led Zeppelin)和滚石乐队(The Rolling Stones)制作过大量音乐会和唱片专辑。Riva成立之后便推出了这款159美元的无线蓝牙音箱。这款音箱凭借其丰富均衡的音效和灵活性,获得了评论界的一致赞扬。蓝牙功能支持从智能手机或有线/卫星电视机顶盒播放流媒体音乐(这让它成为一款非常出色的家庭影院附件)。音箱支持3.5毫米输入,可以直接播放蓝光播放器、乃至唱片机等各种设备上的音乐。此外,它的电池续航能力惊人,长达26个小时。但它真正的卖点还是音质。Turbo X可以播放高达100分贝的高音,并且不会失真。你或许不会经常用到这一功能,但能有这样的选择,总是好的。

Riva Audio Turbo X

Launched by music industry legend Rikki Farr—who has produced a staggering number of concerts and record albums for The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones—Riva came out swinging with this $159 wireless bluetooth speaker. It has earned universal critical praise for its rich, balanced sound, and flexibility. Bluetooth lets you stream from your smartphone or cable/satellite box (making it a terrific home theater add-on). It offers a 3.5mm input for direct streaming from everything from a Blu-ray player to a turntable. And it has a phenomenal battery life: up to 26 hours. The sound quality is the real star, though. The Turbo X can play as loud as 100 decibels without distortion. You likely won't take advantage of that too often, but it's nice to know you can.

Bose SoundTouch 30

Bose是音箱市场最知名的品牌之一,但其早期在无线领域所做的努力并没有赢得太多粉丝的认可。但SoundTouch 30的横空出世改变了这一局面。这款音箱的 售价为500美元。它的体积超过了多数无线音箱,但却能够提供Bose招牌性的活泼音效。用户可以通过蓝牙模块播放手机或平板设备中的音乐,或者直接连接到家中的Wi-Fi系统。这也是少数几款配备遥控器的无线家庭音响系统,用户可以通过预设按键从本地或通过流媒体服务,快速播放最喜欢的音乐列表。这款音箱更适合宴会而非狂欢派对,不过它总是能让房间的每个角落都洋溢着悠扬乐韵。(房子面积不够大?可以考虑350美元的SoundTouch 20。)

Bose SoundTouch 30

Bose has one of the best known names in the speaker world, but its early efforts in the wireless space didn't win over a lot of fans. The SoundTouch 30, which runs $500, changed that, though. It has a larger footprint than most wireless speakers, but it offers the characteristic warm sound for which Bose is known. It offers users the choice of streaming from their phone or tablet via Bluetooth or can hook directly into the home Wi-Fi system. It's also one of the few wireless home audio systems with a remote control—and onboard preset buttons let you instantly launch your favorite playlists, both local or via a streaming service. It's more a speaker for a dinner party than a blowout party, but it will still fill the room with sound. (Got a smaller place? Consider the $350 SoundTouch 20.)

天龙HEOS

天龙音响(Denon)在开发无线系统时,大量借鉴了Sonos的设计。HEOS系列由四个独立的系统组成,分别为: 便携式HEOS 1(售价199美元,外观与Sonos几乎相同);299美元的紧凑型HEOS 3;更高端的低音增强版HEOS 5,售价399美元;以及该系列中最高端的HEOS 7,售价599美元。所有系统均支持通过Wi-Fi或蓝牙播放流媒体音乐,支持高解析度音频,并且均配备一个3.5毫米端口,支持直接流媒体播放。当然,如你所料,价格越高,音质越好。HEOS 7拥有震撼的低音效果,对于音响发烧友来说或许有些过犹不及,但其他人肯定喜欢。此外,它还有一项额外的功能,支持通过U盘与家中的其他HEOS音箱共享音乐。

Denon HEOS

Denon took a lot of cues from Sonos when developing its wireless system. The HEOS line is made of four separate systems: the portable HEOS 1 (a $199 speaker which looks almost identical to Sonos); the $299 compact HEOS 3; the higher-end, bass-intense $399 HEOS 5; and the top of the line HEOS 7, which runs $599. All of the systems can stream via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and support High Resolution Audio. And each also has a 3.5mm port for direct streaming. But as you might expect, the more you spend, the greater the sound quality. The HEOS 7 has a booming bass that might be too much for audiophiles, but others will love. It also has the added trick of being able to share a USB stick loaded with music with other HEOS speakers around the house.

三星Radiant360

第一眼很容易把Radiant360系列与亚马逊的Echo混淆,因为两者外观都呈圆柱形。但在使用三星(Samsung)的这款音箱播放音乐之后,两者的差异会立刻显现出来。这款多房间音箱包括四种不同型号:R1售价160美元,R3售价200美元,R5售价300美元,R7售价380美元。R1、R3和R5呈桶状,顶部为喇叭状,而R7则呈卵型。不过每一个型号均可以全方位传播声音,且体积不会过大。理论上,这意味着不论你站在音箱的哪个方向,都能听到相同的音质。

所有音箱都支持高解析度音频和Wi-Fi与蓝牙流媒体播放,还可以与多房间系统配对。R7的音质最佳, R5紧随其后。预计R1在高音播放时可能会有轻微的失真,但如果把它作为一款卫星音箱使用,这并不算什么问题。对于预算有限的人群来说,这依旧是一款非常可靠的独立无线音箱。 (财富中文网)

Samsung Radiant360

It's pretty easy to confuse the Radiant360 line with Amazon's Echo at first glance due to their cylindrical shape. But once Samsung's line begins playing music, the differences become clear. There are four different types of multi-room speakers in the lineup: the $160 R1, the $200 R3, the $300 R5, and the $380 R7. The R1, R3 and R5 all are tube-like in appearance with a flared top, while the R7 is more egg-shaped. But all of them push sound out in every direction, and none has an especially large footprint. Theoretically, that means you get the same audio quality no matter where you're standing in relation to the speaker.

All of the speakers support high resolution audio as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming. And they can be paired together for a multi-room system. The R7 is the best in terms of sound quality, with the R5 close behind. Expect some slight distortion with the R1 at high volumes—though if that's used as a satellite speaker, that likely won't be a problem. And it's still a very solid standalone wireless speaker for people on a budget.
