Parrot Zikmu Solo Review

Parrot Zikmu Solo Review

We've had our hands on pair of Parrot Zikmu speakers before - back in October of 2010 when they were just offered as a massive multi-colored pair. Here near the end of 2012 we're taking a peek at the newest unit offered up from the same team: the Parrot Zikmu Solo. This time around, Parrot presents a speaker with futuristic connectivity and a love for singularity.

Philips FWP3200D DJ-Dock makes you the communal deadmau5

Philips FWP3200D DJ-Dock makes you the communal deadmau5

"Music," the wise Madonna once sang, "makes the people come together," and although it may look like the tail-end of a Pagani Zonda, the Philips FWP3200D DJ-Dock attempts to do just that. A combination speaker system and dual-deck docking station, the DJ-Dock takes two iPhones or iPods in its rotatable bays - which can be swiveled for either a user standing behind, or positioned for communal control at a party - and includes integrated lighting effects.

Orbitsound T9 soundbar promises a roomful of magic stereo

Orbitsound T9 soundbar promises a roomful of magic stereo

Soundbars are usually long, so Orbitsound is bucking the trend with the new T9. Whereas rivals aim to put their left and right speakers as far apart as possible, Orbitsound relies instead on proprietary spatial sound technology that promises true stereo from a box just 30cm long. And, just to sweeten the deal, they've slotted an iPhone dock on top.

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

The iPod dock by the name of XtremeMac Tango TRX has been out for some time now, having been first announced all the way back in 2010, but it's no worse for wear with the 2011 holiday season rapidly approaching, and since we've never had a look at it before and there's a brand new bit of functionality now with Google Music out of beta, let's have a look, shall we? This device comes with several parts - first being the main speaker complete with iPod dock which can house anything from the tiniest iPod to the iPad 2, though I wouldn't recommend the latter as it does block a bit of the sound blast and isn't exactly held the most securely in place. Then there's the bit that makes this whole thing unique: the second docking station, one that allows you to charge the device on one side of the house while the speaker jams music out at the other.

Orbitsound T12v3 Review

Home entertainment can be difficult: do you invite dozens of speakers into your living room in the quest for perfect sound, or opt for a one- or two-box setup and maybe sacrifice some quality for simplicity? UK firm Orbitsound claims to have the compromise, with its T12v3 soundbar using a clever, patented system to create stereo sound with room-wide sweet spot. It's the holy grail of home entertainment, but does it really work? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

JVC Kaboom! boombox dragged screaming into 2011

JVC Kaboom! boombox dragged screaming into 2011

Feeling retro? JVC has dug deep into the archives and pulled out something of a classic, the JVC Kaboom! boombox, though they've wisely given it an update to suit the 2011 market. The distinctive pipe-bomb shape is still there, and the love-it-or-hate-it design, but you now get an iPod/iPhone docking station along with the integrated CD player.

Philips Fidelio SoundSphere hands-on

Philips Fidelio SoundSphere hands-on

As oddly-shaped speaker systems go, the Philips Fidelio SoundSphere pair should still stand out even in the most avant garde living room. In fact, unless your lounge looks like the egg room from the first Alien film, expect plenty of questions about the bulbous AirPlay-compatible set. On show at IFA 2011 today, the SoundSpheres dragged us in like a Facehugger's tail around the neck.
