4.5 out of 5 stars

There's very little not to like in B&W's A7 apart from its huge price and cheapish remote: it sounds better than any other AirPlay speaker PC Advisor have ever tested, it looks classy and elegant, and it's easy to set up and use. If nothing but the very best will do, start saving up because when it comes to clarity, punch and nuance, there's no other speaker dock that can touch it.

Value for money: 6 out of 10 points

If you're looking for the best AirPlay speaker on the market, the A7 is it. However, Trusted Reviews though its price tag of £700 to be ludicrous, since for much less than that you can get a proper compact Hi-Fi system or stereo speaker setup which will sound much better too. It's simply amazing for something so small and it looks great, but for most it won't be worth the outlay.

Luckily, B&W's A7 does a lot to justify its crazy price tag, serving up a fantastically well-balanced sound with punchy bass, a smooth treble and oodles of power at its disposal. IT Reviews loved its simple, classy design, and said that it was a breeze to set up. If you can afford it, it's no doubt one of the best speaker docks you can get your hands on.
