CES 2008: Pacemaker pocket-sized DJ system released

No, not a medical device for ageing Ibiza veterans, the Pacemaker is actually a 120GB-packing PMP capable of playing two tracks simultaneously, allowing users to mix the two together, beat-match and add effects.  Pacemaker can automatically work out the BPM (beats-per-minute) of each track and display it on the 45mm 262k colour TFT screen, letting you match the speeds for a professional mix.  Two output channels are provided, one for headphones and the other a line-out for external amplification, and the Pacemaker is compatible with MP3, AAC, OGG Vorbis, FLAC and WAV files.



CES 2008: Logitech Squeezebox Duet multi-room media system takes on Sonos

With Sonos‘ popular but expensive multi-room media streaming system in their sights, Logitech have launched their new Squeezebox Duet system at CES 2008.  A scrollwheel-enabled remote with 2.4-inch colour screen can display tracklistings, album art and even RSS feeds, together with personalised wallpaper and internet radio information. 



CD Carousel Plus stores 150 discs jukebox style

I’m not very organized. I try to be but some things I’ll let fall by the wayside and there they will stay. I’d love to get my CDs or DVDs in order but just alphabetizing them doesn’t always work/last.


Philips Streamium Wireless Music makes taking your music with you around the house a breeze

So you fill your house with these Streamium units, and each one can connect an iPod, USB flash drive, play CD’s, FM radio, or connect to your computer and stream music. Oh, and each one has an 80GB hard drive that you can rip CD’s to and stuff like that.


Toilet Tunes – A little music with your toilet sir?

When ‘musical fruit’ just isn’t soothing enough in the bathroom, the Toilet Tunes Automatic Bathroom Entertainment System will step in. Your bathroom experience will never be the same.

The Toilet Tunes system works with two units. One will be placed in an area of your choosing and the other on the back of the lid so that when it’s raised a sensor will let the other unit know to start its magic. You can choose from several different musical tastes including jazz, latin guitar, techno/pop or even various nature sounds.


NAT Audio Magma tube amp – audiophile quality with car show power

Sure, it’s a tube amp, a single ended one, and it will give you the audiophile quality sound you have been looking for. I mean, it has a frequency response of 10Hz all the way up to 100kHz, input impedence of 100kohms, input sensitivity of 2.7V RMS to get the full power output, and gain of 22.5 dB when using 8ohms.

You can also switch between 4 and 8 ohms. It has a 6N1P-EV, a 6N30P-DR, and the big ass tube is an Eimac 450TH. All that, and they still manage to give you a lot of power output at 160 watts, for a tube amp, that’s an amazing amount of power.


Blaupunkt Melbourne SD27 – Plays music from anything except CDs

Recently manufacturers have been making in-dash receivers that not only take CDs, but SD cards as well. This is a great idea, as it’s much easier to switch out your music on an SD card than it is to burn a new CD every time you want some new tunes. However, this latest receiver has decided to take this a step further by removing the CD player completely.


M-Audio Session Music Producer – Perfect for aspiring musicians

I doubt that there is anyone in the US that hasn’t watched at least one episode of American Idol. I’m not a fan of the show, but you should check out the ones at the beginning of the season where they hold auditions. If you would just watch that, you would understand that theres a really good chance that you can’t carry a tune. However, if you insist that your voice should be heard by others, you’ll probably need a way to record it. This new mic from M-Audio is the perfect way to do it.


Marantz CR101 – It’s got everything from a CD player to an AM radio

Have you ever looked at something and thought that it looked cheaply-made only to be blown away by the high price? On that note, I give you the Marantz CR101 CD Player.


Dice iTPA-200 – An iPod dock for audiophiles

I won’t pretend to be an audiophile. While I do have some knowledge of musical equipment thanks to my dad who is a musician, I’m sure plenty of you out there can spot the difference between an amplifier that is tube-based, and one that is not just by listening to it. If you’re one of those, you’ve got to check out this iPod dock.


Samsung shows off their sexy MM-X5 iPod dock

If you’re looking for a sexy new stereo system for your iPod, you might check out Samsung’s latest offering, the MM-X5.


Swimmers get a new MP3 player dubbed the Dolphin

If you do a lot of swimming, then I’m sure you get tired of not hearing much of anything while you’re under water. Perhaps some music would make the laps go by faster.
