Excerpt: We’ve reviewed a number of great speakers, but we haven’t been this excited about a set of boom boxes since we laid hands on the eponymous Cambridge SoundsWorks MicroWorks in the very first issue of boot magazine—way back in September 1996.

But you do have to pay for the premium experience and for your average computer user, the £400 asking price is probably too much to pay, especially as there are 2.1 systems out there that are very capable, for much less money.
