The best outdoor speakers: which to choose in 2020

Qobuz News On August 28, 2020
Why don’t we listen to music on the terrace or in the garden too? We’re not talking about headphones here, but sound systems designed for the outdoor spaces of your flat or house. You may not know it, but most manufacturers of consumer loudspeakers offer rain and sun resistant models in their catalogues. Of course, it’s hard to imagine speakers in wooden casing going around the pool. Their lifespan would be seriously compromised. Speakers specifically designed for outdoors have the necessary properties to endure the weather and come in a range of different shapes. They can be wall-mounted, free-standing, buried or concealed and are suitable for all kinds of situations. You may need to choose from a variety of brands. We explore ten examples of great outdoor loudspeakers, from less than €200 up to €900.
