Of course some may prefer watching movies in the privacy of their own home, so while a 30-40 foot tall display may not be the most feasible, perhaps LG’s HX906TX 9.1 cinema sound system will be […]
08/26/2011, Looking for a set of speakers that claims will “move the goalposts”? If you are, perhaps Q Acoustic’s upcoming offering, the Q7000 5.1 sound system could be the sound system that will achieve that, but do not expect it to come cheap.

08/09/2011, I’m not sure what exactly it is about small dogs that seems to attract the wealthy (think Paris Hilton) but it appears that luxury fashion brand, Juicy Couture, has released a set of speakers in the shape of a Yorkie, which will definitely be cheaper than owning an actual dog and it probably does things your dog can’t.
08/05/2011, Don’t you just love the wonders of miniaturization? That’s exactly what happened with the Mini Maggie from Magnepan – where it will come in the form factor of a flat panel speaker, although it will be extremely small in stature, hence its namesake. The Mini Maggie from Magnepan will more or less utilize similar technology which can be found in the 2-meter tall MG-3.7, although it seems to have gone […]
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.

07/20/2011, Earlier this year at CES, Klipsch showed off a new sound bar called the Gallery Studio. A horizontal speaker that allowed users to stream music from their iOS devices wirelessly onto it using AirPlay technology.

07/19/2011, Has the Nintendo Wii sparked off a whole bunch of accelerometer ideas in other pieces of consumer electronics? Perhaps, and as the Soundsitive gesture-controlled speaker suggests, this unique piece of equipment that was part of the Designlab show in Paris last month actually needs no knobs or buttons – all you have to do is move your hand closer or farther away from the top of the speaker, and the […]

They are also known for creating wireless speaker systems that are said to work phenomenally when set up, which is why when their latest pair […]
07/11/2011, Devices these days are starting to head towards a more minimalist sort of design, expounding on the “less is more” phrase. Well we can’t complain, since the “less is more” philosophy usually ends up as less clutter in our houses and our desks, so why should this Vol speaker, designed by Hiranao Tsuboi be any different?
07/08/2011, Pioneer has typically created products aimed for home theatres and hi-fi systems, but it looks like they’re branching out into the computer market by offering up two new speaker systems - the 2.0-channel S-MM301 and the 2.1-channel S-MM751RU, which have been created for the PC user in mind.
07/08/2011, A good set of speakers will change the way you view a song, as it opens up a whole new spectrum of sound and reveals the various subtleties that you might have missed out on, and that might have gotten lost coming out of your laptop’s speakers.

07/06/2011, Soundfreaq has just announced a couple of wireless speaker systems – the Sound Step and Sound Step Recharge.
