The Kaleidoloop by Critter and Guitari is a lo-fi sound collector

The Kaleidoloop is a digital audio recorder which is about as far removed from devices like the high-tech compact Olympus LS-100 as it's possible to get – it's an unashamedly lo-fi sound collector, housed in a large aluminum and wood enclosure.  Read More

The Dyskograf is an installation created by arts collective Avoka

The turntable continues to be relevant in a market dominated by digital media, as little can compare with a good slab of vinyl in the minds of many music aficionados. However, the Dyskograf by arts collective Avoka takes this venerable format and injects a modern twist, producing a turntable installation which enables you to draw your own beats in real time.  Read More

High-end audio specialist McIntosh has launched the McAire personal music system featuring...

The name McIntosh Labs has been synonymous with outstanding audio quality for more than 60 years and its iconic MC275 tube amp certainly left its mark on me when I first encountered one many moons ago. Hot on the heels of the MX121 audio/video control center featuring Apple's AirPlay wireless technology released earlier this year, the company has launched the McAire free-standing personal music system that allows a new generation of discriminating consumers to stream audio from an iTunes library on a Mac or PC - or music from an iDevice - over an existing home network.  Read More

The WeMo Baby lets anxious parents listen to high-quality audio from their baby’s room

Belkin has announced the launch of its WeMo Baby device that turns any iOS device into a digital baby monitor. Comprising a Wi-Fi connecting baby monitor and an accompanying iOS app, the WeMo Baby lets anxious parents listen to high-quality audio from their baby’s room whether they're in the next room or the other side of the world … though it's probably not a good idea that the baby is left that unattended.  Read More

Blue Microphones' Mikey Digital connected to an iPhone 4S

As US$100 accessories for iPhones and iPads go, Blue Microphones' Mikey Digital is not the loveliest. Open the box and a lightweight, plasticky node plops out. "Why would anyone want to do that to their iPhone?" one self-confessed Apple fetishist quipped when I showed it to him. He has a point. The rounded corners, black faces with metallic edge are clearly a homage to the iPhone 4 and 4S, but the result doesn't quite come off. Luckily, Blue has spent more times on the Mikey Digital's condensor-filled innards than its shell. Gizmag got to grips with one to see what it could do.  Read More

Spending some hands-on time with the Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track Linear PCM recorder

The often free audio recording apps that come pre-loaded on many smartphones are great for grabbing an impromptu interview, capturing all your innermost thoughts while out and about, or making sure you don't lose that killer riff whenever and wherever inspiration may strike. What isn't great is the quality of the audio. Add to that a distinct lack of features and you might be tempted to look in the direction of dedicated portable devices for all your sound recording needs. Having spent a week or so in the company of the Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track Linear PCM recorder, I can confirm that you really do get what you pay for.  Read More

DBEST's Transformative speaker features a central module attached to two speaker modules t...

From suitcases to doughnuts and from vests to shoulder harnesses, it seems speaker design knows no bounds. London-based audio product manufacturer DBEST has provided yet another twist to the saga with its aptly named Transformative Bluetooth Hi-Fi System that can go from a circle to an elongated snake form factor with a twist and turn of its speakers.  Read More

Marshall Headphones and Zound Industries have unveiled the Hanwell, a new Marshall-branded...

For the last half-century, Marshall Amps have helped shape the sound of modern music. They've traveled on the Highway to Hell with AC/DC, been on the receiving end of some Monterey grinding from Jimi Hendrix and have even shared the stage with God himself, but now the iconic brand is heading to our living rooms with the launch of the Hanwell. Developed in partnership with Marshall Headphones and Zound Industries, the new active loudspeaker is the first home audio product to sport the Marshall script logo and continues the late Jim Marshall's legacy of loud.  Read More
