Totally wireless, Flicks delivers home audio, video anywhere

If you’ve ever used a projector for entertainment purposes, you probably know how terrible the built-in speakers are.

If I’m setting up the projector for plush movie-viewing, I’m reaching for the more »

TechnologyTell Review: Definitive Technology W9 speaker

So I just finished listening to and reviewing the Definitive Technology W7 speaker. Why stop there, right?? At a little more than two times the size of the W7, the W9 delivers some serious decibels at the cost of size and weight. But considering the huge sound output, it’s still an easily-moved speaker. Design & more »

TechnologyTell Review: Definitive Technology W7 speaker

It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for products that deliver bigger bang for the buck. There’s just something about having a device or gadget perform more than what one might expect.

Acoustic Research adds refined outdoor audio at CES 2015

When it comes to roaming the vast expanses of carpet and concrete for CES 2015, there is almost no shortage of speakers. Like, seriously. Although it’s hard for me to say if there are more this year, compared to CES 2014, I can vouch for seeing an uptake in style and innovation. One theme I’ve more »

ARCHT One is a 360 speaker disguised as art

If you’re one to observe upon and believe most speakers out there tend to be boxy, you’d be right. These rectangular shapes of varying dimensions sit vertically or horizontally in living spaces, typically close to a wall. Depending on the speaker brand, size, and power, some areas of that room will have better-sounding music than more »

Super large-screen TVs get home theater love with ZVOX

Ever since TVs became a household commodity, manufacturers have continued to improve upon quality, features, and design. So far, each new year of the past few years have upped screen size by at least an inch or so. If you have the budget (and allocated space), all video  can be enjoyed to over 80 inches more »

JBL cinema base, soundbar speakers available for preorder

When it comes to upgrading home entertainment experiences, a brand new TV isn’t the only answer. Sure, if you own a clunker that would do better in the garage or guest bedroom, new TV it is. But if you already own a great flat panel unit, then it’s going to be either furniture and/or audio more »

Showcased at CES, Soundfreaq Double Spot now available

Soundfreaq has (finally) announced the availability of its Double Spot Bluetooth wireless speaker. I had been wondering about this one ever since I had the hands-on opportunity to check it out at CES 2014. It’s the design that drew me in – it could draw you in as well. When you’re a portable Bluetooth speaker, more »

Monster gets comfy, moves in homes with 3 hi-res speakers

Portable Bluetooth speakers are quite popular right now. Maybe too popular, as it seems that more are announced every other week. It is a pretty saturated market. So it makes sense for big audio companies to flex their strength and savvy, focusing more on audio and less on portable. Pound-for-pound, a home system will best more »
