Bose Soundbar 700 and Soundbar 500 enhances your home theater experience

by Edwin

Many of us would like nothing better than to plonk our bodies down in our favorite chair when we return home, kick back and relax — preferably with our favorite tunes playing in the background, of course. Music is food for the soul, and a good home theater system also works wonders to de-stress with a great movie. Bose has come up with the Soundbar 700 and Soundbar 500 which will crush the limitations of spaciousness from a solitary enclosure, as it merges size-defying performance with superior voice pickup as well as the power of Amazon Alexa. There will be support for other voice assistants in the future, as well as AirPlay 2 compatibility for simple streaming from Apple devices from early next year onwards.

When you want to turn your home into a smart home, you know it’s not something that you can buy, open a box, and immediately have. You have to purchase separate elements of a smart home, and configure them to all work together. Only after you have all the parts, pieces, and bugs worked out does it start to feel like a futuristic home that you barely have to move a finger to control.

Technology is growing at an ever-increasing rate. While this is awesome and means that there will be a lot of advances in medicine, clean energy, and farming, it also means that it’s hard to keep up with all the toys, gizmos and gadgets.

The Devialet Phantom – can you recognize quality sound?

by Caitlyn

Phantom

When you watch a video on YouTube, you can tell when quality is lacking. The image on your screen is pixelated, the sound is tinny, and while you can figure out what’s happening, you know searching for another of the same video will likely yield better results. Can you tell when a speaker at home is lacking quality? Do you keep an ear out for how it handles highs and lows?

The Razer Turret makes being a couch potato seem like a good thing

by Caitlyn

Razer Turret

We’re not trying to be lazy when we get home from work, but when you’ve already pushed yourself for ten or more hours, it’s just too taxing to do any more in a day. The moment the shoes come off and you get comfy, many of us end up with a controller or mouse and keyboard in our hands. Usually one or the other would delineate whether you’d be at a desk or on the couch, but thankfully we have all sorts of ways to make it so you don’t have to choose between one or the other.

Swiss Engineered Quad Calibrated Turntable costs a bomb

by Edwin

swiss-quad-turntableA turntable might be seen by some to be an antique, while for the others, it might be a plaything for folks who have some extra dough to splash at the end of each month. After all, vinyl records are not all that cheap in the first place, and they do tend to wear out with constant listening, so you might want to use them sparingly. Well, a device that does CD playback and has USB compatibility is extremely common and affordable, but if you would like to go all out, then the $94,000 Swiss Engineered Quad Calibrated Turntable might be just the right thing for you.

This happens to be a turntable that provides vinyl enthusiasts the pleasure of listening to LPs using one of four precisely calibrated tone arms. It has been specially crafted in Bern, Switzerland, where it is composed of a magnetically suspended aluminum platter that is nestled within a special wooden cylinder, ensuring it delivers a stable, silent base that will remain unaffected by environmental vibration. A quartet of smaller cylinders will surround the platter of each house, letting you listen to different styles of music with whichever tonearm provides your preferred sound quality. Not only that, there is also integrated damping technology that does away with the troublesome sonic aberrations generated by common consumer models, as each cylinder sports a trio of adjustable steel feet that enable precisely calibrated height placement for the central platter and four tonearms. Definitely a purchase for the filthy rich!
