    Can anyone recommend me some wireless bluetooth speakers? I dont want to spend too much on a sound system so anything around the £100 - £150 mark would be great.
    I've been on Amazon but cant find any I like. Can anyone advise on a good site or recommend good speakers?

    Regards

    "Good" and "Bluetooth" don't really go together. The best to my knowledge that aren't ridiculous are the Audioengine's with their W1 adaptor.

    That being said, I don't really recommend the Audioengines in any other situation. Perhaps there are some UK/Euro-only options that I'm unaware of.

    Why is Bluetooth a necessity, if I must ask? And what does "good" mean for you?

    By good I mean good sound quality, and ones that wont drop sound by moving to different locations.
    Bluetooth because I hate wires like everyone, and I want to have an alternative to Airport Express to hear music around my home.

    There is a trick that you can run a home network through the phone jack, check Lifehacker. It's not even a matter of price, there just aren't (many) good speakers that are Bluetooth.

    Cable management can hide wires, although you won't have the ability to move them as easy.

    Not blutooth, but a wireless solution that has worked well for me is the Griffin Evolve (http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/evolve) plugged into a airport express. Not the cheapest set up, but awesome for good sound (not going to be as great as a nice setup with sub) and mobility within a home. I lived in San Francisco and used to bring the speakers on the roof deck and the Evolve would transmit through the ceiling/roof flawlessly! There are patches so that you have also have all sound from a computer go through your airport.

    That looks quality. Although it may be out of my price range.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Bluetooth speakers

    I purchased a pair of Pulse Two way speakers from www.allthingswireless.co.uk & they kick arse. They are a UK based company though and unfortunately do not ship internationally.
