Jabra have outed a pair of new Bluetooth devices, including a low-cost alternative to the Jabra Stone, the Jabra Extreme, and a Bluetooth speakerphone, the Jabra Cruiser. The Extreme is more traditionally designed than the Stone, but has the same Noise Blackout Extreme background-noise cancellation DSP technology as the more expensive headset.
Anyone who has perused a high-end home theater and audio store knows that home theater and home audio speakers come in staggering range of styles and prices. You can get the cheap stuff at Walmart or you can spend tens of thousands of dollars on premium speakers in the high-end. Epos has announced its new flagship line of speakers called the Encore 50 that will debut at CES this week.
Another ARM-based touchscreen device blurring the definition between PMP and MID, the Chuwi W3000 has a Telechips 7901 dual-core chipset with integrated DSP for what's said to be better audio and video playback. There's also WiFi and possibly Bluetooth, GPS and USB Host functionality.
Not every golden ears live in an area with opportunity to experience a ear hand-on audition on high-end speakers. Audio freaks thrive for high fidelity loudspeakers, and have serious mad cash around, will get their chances to try out Guy Nelson Pass's second gen floorstanding at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Replacing its audiophile-beloved Rushmore series active Loudspeakers, Pass Labs SR1 is a passive designed four-way loudspeaker enclosed in a dual separate cabinet, which houses four different drives fabricated from Nextel-coated cones and Crescendo tweeter in different sizes. The staggeringly large lower enclosure houses a 10-inch and a 8-inch drivers while the top takes care of the mid-bass driver and SEAS Crescendo tweeter.
Induction Dynamics have unveiled two new speaker models in their "Super Loudspeaker" range, the ID1.15 and the S1.8. ID1.15 - shown here in black - stands 62.5-inches high and features a 1.125-inch high-power soft dome tweeter, a 3-inch soft dome midrange, an 8-inch woofer with Kevlar cone, and dual 15-inch subwoofers with laminated cones.
Phase technology unwrapped its Premier Collection speaker series with a pair of PC 9.5 flagship floor-standing and PC Surround II loudspeakers. The premier series employs an In-house and patented 3 layer composite RPF Solid Piston woofer, soft dome tweeter and a proprietary Absolute Phase crossover for minimizing distortion and providing balance throughout the room.
Hands-on experience with ECS' G10IL netbook earlier in the year flagged up a surprising absence of integrated 3G WWAN; surprising, we say, because ECS had used that fact as one of their key selling points. Now it all becomes clear: if you want integrated HSDPA/HSUPA you actually want the J10IL - just a few letters down the alphabet but a whole lot more connectivty.
These alien-nation’s looking speakers are not just another sophisticated lifestyle product. Back in the 1990s, a group of best B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) developers, including the men behind B&W’s legendary Nautilus speakers were told to design new line of affordable high quality speakers with untraditional approach. They came out with Minipod, and the Podspeakers product line was later licensed to the Danish HI-FI producer Scandyna that has more than 40 years of experiences in loudspeaker design
Damn Small Projectors. The 920 measures in an 86x44x85 millimeters, that’s tiny. So tiny Oculon, for now at least, gets to claim the world’s smallest title.
The 1440 is an LCoS modle and can throw a 20” display from up to 2 feet away. It cranks out a 20” screen and an 800x600 resolution with inputs for composite or D-Sub15 which means your computers and game consoles should be good to go.
The Sonance Flair loudspeaker is great because it will add high quality audio to just about any location. With Sonance’s flexible mounting brackets all you should need is a screw driver, the mounting hardware and a little bit of time.
The mounts are round steel plats that connect to speaker wiring in J-boxes. The plate mounts with just a couple screws that come with the speaker. The speaker is held in place by the steel plate by way of some powerful neodymium magnets that are in the top of the speaker. The electrical connection is automatically made between male connecters on the speaker and female connectors in the steal plate.
