Sonos SUB adds bottom end thunder to wireless audio setup

By - May 28, 2012 4 Pictures
There's little doubt that since being founded in 2002, Sonos has consistently delivered quality wireless Hi-Fi systems. After writing about the Zoneplayer S5 (now known as the PLAY:5) in 2009 I managed to grab a little one-on-one time with the all-in-one music streamer in the sound room of my local Hi-Fi specialist and walked away suitably impressed. While this model has its own subwoofer driver, the smaller PLAY:3 does not and those who love their bottom end to shake the room may be left a little wanting. The latest addition to the range, the SUB, promises to more than fill any bass booming void in an existing Sonos setup. Read More

digiZoid releases Zo 2 personal subwoofer, we go hands-on

By - April 26, 2012 15 Pictures
Almost two years ago I reported being very impressed by the sound sculpturing capabilities of the Zo Personal Subwoofer. digiZoid has now released version 2, and brought some significant upgrades to the pocket-friendly headphone amp. With so many quality dedicated digital music players (the Cowon C2 or the Colorfly C4, for instance) and high end smartphones already offering pretty decent audio reproduction, is it worth laying out extra cash for sonic enhancement technology that sits between device and earphones? I've been giving a review unit a good testing over the last week or so in an attempt to answer that very question. Read More

Soundmatters has announced a new speaker designed to bring some low frequency oomph to its portable foxLv2 Bluetooth and non-Bluetooth brethren. The new foxLO, which Soundmatters calls “the world’s first palm-sized hi-fi subwoofer,” plugs directly into foxLv2 speaker’s subwoofer output but will also work with other branded portable speakers, such as the Jawbone Jambox, thanks to the inclusion of a 3.5 mm full pass-through output.

By - September 21, 2011 3 Pictures
Greensound Technology made its first appearance at IFA this year and alongside its Serac series speakers, the company was showcasing its latest offerings - the Luno and Cube subwoofer. Like all Greensound's creations, the Luno speakers are made from a pane of glass - this time curved slightly - that isn't just for show but actually vibrates to produce the sound that is projected from both sides to deliver "360 degree sound."

“Clear” sound from Greensound Technology's glass speakers

By - September 15, 2010 5 Pictures
As any cola-swilling child of the 90’s will tell you, things are better when they’re clear. Water? Definitely better clear. Conscience? Ditto. Speakers? Sure, why not? We’ve already had Harman Kadon’s GLA-55 speakers featuring faceted cut-glass enclosures to expose the audio engine, but the glass speakers from Greensound Technology are even more striking. Looking like little more than a shaped pane of glass sitting atop a base, the speakers use the glass to project the sound and deliver “true 360 degree sound.” Read More

About the size of an iPod nano and weighing less than an ounce, the Zo is said to work by dynamically adjusting audio signal input to present the listener with clearer bass, crisp highs and smooth mids without having to increase overall player volume.
