Samsung R1

 

The R1 is the smallest and most affordable of Samsung's new multiroom speakers, sitting below the R3, R5 and R7 in the range. It may be the cheapest of the new models, but Samsung hasn't skimped on features – it does all the same tricks as the more...

SAMSUNG R1 360° Wireless Smart Sound Multi-Room Speaker - Black

 

Look excellent and sound great for the size. The 360 degree design does a good job of distributing the sound around a room
