Yamaha has entered the very crowded portable speaker market with the Cube, which it claims is the "the best sounding speaker system for its size".
It is small – just 3.5 inches each side and certainly has the looks. But, according to Yamaha, it also packs the sort of audio quality you’d find in much larger devices. This is down to the SR-Bass (Swing radiator Bass) function, which maximises internal energy within the enclosure, producing a deep and powerful bass you shouldn’t get from such a small unit. It also reproduces the entire frequency range through its 3cm Titanium Cone and high quality digital amplifier.
And to keep a minimalist look, just one button controls all functions. Available in time for Christmas, you can pick it up for £99.
