After a few months of living with multiple Alexa-powered speakers, I have come to loathe finding my TV's remote control and hitting the button that turns on the set. Polk knows how I feel. The company bowed to the inevitable tonight by introducing the Command Bar, the first Alexa-powered soundbar.

THE VERDICT
If you’re looking to plug your turntable directly into a good-looking and functional pair of speakers, the Kanto YU6 will make it work—and sound great.

Why shouldn’t life be simpler? If there’s one thing your studio apartment, dorm room, bedroom, or guest bedroom doesn’t need, it’s an audio rack with a tangle of cables. But going without music would be barbaric. So how simple do you need to get? If a bare-bones Bluetooth speaker isn’t enough, a pair of powered speakers might make more sense. You’d have a stereo soundstage without the fuss of an outboard amp and rack.
