04/03/2013, The world has been talking about a paperless society for quite some time already, and it seems to me that it might not be that easy to be truly paperless, although a wireless world does sound like an enticing idea, and of course, it certainly is more “doable”, so to speak. If you have been in the market for a wireless speaker for your living room, then you might do […]
02/20/2013, Orbitsound, a UK based audio company, has announced the release of its M range of soundbars. The latest offerings are the M9 and M12 soundbars with Bluetooth connectivity and a wireless subwoofer. Both models come with Orbitsound’s propitiatory spatial sound technology. The newest Soundbars look somewhat the same as the T series, but the M series comes with upgrades to the soundbars. The biggest update is the Bluetooth capability, allowing […]
08/30/2012, Klipsch has just introduced their first horn-loaded soundbar known as the HD Theater SB 3, where it is touted to deliver detailed sound and maximized output effortlessly, although it remains to be seen whether it is good enough to live up to the press release’s word of covering “even the largest listening areas.” Still, we would like to give the soundbar the benefit of doubt, considering how Klipsch’s track record […]
01/09/2012, [CES 2012] Philips is taking a different approach when it comes to streaming high-quality content to the TV. Instead of using a “video box” like most of the other players, Philips has made the audio quality a central piece of the puzzle and made a DLNA-compatible soundbar that is capable of receiving content from DLNA devices and playing that content back on the TV via HDMI and outputting the sound […]
01/06/2012, [CES 2012] Behringer, a company usually known for its enthusiast and professional audio equipment, has just launched this Eclipse XT Soundbar, a 160W wireless sub-woofer sound system that can deliver impressive bass and sound clarity at the same time, says Behringer. Frankly, we have not tried it, so we can neither confirm or deny this information, but what we can say is that the design is pretty neat, and the fact that […]

07/22/2011, If there’s one thing you’ve got to love about Mac computers, it would be their AirPlay feature which allows users to stream songs from their computers to a set of speakers wirelessly. This clears up the clutter of audio cables that usually come with regular speakers, and it seems to go well with Apple’s “clean” and sleek design philosophy.
01/04/2011, [CES 2011] We’ve seen the Orbitsound T3 and T6 in the past years, but this time around the company from across the Atlantic has churned out the T14 soundbar, standing apart from the rest of the flotsam in the market thanks to Orbitsound’s renowned patented spatial stereo technology. This technology doesn’t require you to be in the sweet spot in order for your ears to enjoy the best possible audio […]
10/22/2010, Edifier’s latest Soundbar USB peripheral will attempt to add some oomph to your music listening and movie watching experience on a notebook. As we all know, unless you have a souped up notebook or desktop replacement with above average speakers, most regular notebooks have rather pathetic sounding audio output – which is where the Edifier Soundbar USB comes in to do its bit. Measuring 1.5 inches tall and 10.5 inches […]
12/22/2009, Yamaha is back with the YHT-S400 sound bar which measures an impressive 31″ in length, although it stands all of just 2″ high while featuring an integrated subwoofer within the receiver to make it one of the more suitable tools for the urban warrior who retreats to his/her studio apartment den after a long, hard day at the office. With the integrated subwoofer, you no longer need to free up […]
12/15/2009, Home theatre systems are the bees knees when it comes to getting the closest possible experience to being in a cinema right in the comfort of your own home.

09/11/2009, Pioneer made it known at CEDIA that they will be releasing a new soundbar as well as iPod docks sometime later this year, where the XW models will come with 2.1-surround sound, 60W output and Bluetooth connectivity crammed into a single unit.

09/10/2009, JVC’s latest two TH-BA1 and TH-SB100 soundbars are pretty much the same unit, although the latter goes one up by having a JVC Blu-ray player as its escort for a more complete home theater entertainment experience. These two will feature a couple of 4.1-channel soundbars with a wireless subwoofer, capable of pounding out 220 watts of total system power. They can handle Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS […]
