Which Smart Display speaker sounds the best?

Best answer: The JBL Link View is the best-sounding Smart Display you can buy. It has powerful bass, crisp highs, and loud volume that'll rock your house with heart-pounding tunes.

Best Buy: JBL Link View ($250)

JBL's Link View sounds better than any other Smart Display

Without a doubt, the JBL Link View is the Smart Display we recommend for buyers that want the best-sounding one they can get.

Equipped with two 51mm drivers and a subwoofer on the back, the Link View kicks out more powerful audio than the Google Home Hub or Lenovo Smart Display. Bass is nice and deep, high notes are clear, and the overall sound of music, podcasts, and videos is simply a joy to the ears.

The Link View doesn't sound quite as good as a dedicated speaker like the Sonos One, but it comes darn close.

You can add it to multi-room audio groups

If you want to take your jam sessions to the next level, you can add the JBL Link View to multi-room audio groups using the Google Home app. This means you can play a song or podcast across all of your Google Assistant-powered speakers — and Chromecast Audio built-in speakers — at once.

The JBL Link View can easily fill a room with sound on is own, but if you want to engulf your entire home in tunes, the Link View connects seamlessly to your other Google speakers/displays.

The Link View is the best Smart Display for music lovers

The JBL Link View is one of the pricier Smart Displays, but if you really value great sound quality, it's definitely worth the price of admission.
