Voxx International (formerly known as Audiovox) has a habit of making a splash at CES, and this year has been no different. Today, the company's Acoustic Research subsidiary announced a pair of audio docks: the AirPlay Audio System (ARAP50) and the Bluetooth Wireless Audio System (ARS70).
The Core is a wireless speaker system that connects to your iPhone or Android device and sounds like "two widely separated full size HiFi speakers." The Core can work with any device - OS X, Windows, iOS or Android included - just so long as it has Bluetooth.
Let’s face it: Bluetooth speakers are nothing new. What is new however, is a Bowers & Wilkins Bluetooth speaker. B&W is one of the most revered speaker companies in the world and their wireless Airplay speakers—Zeppelin and A series—are among the best. But their use of Airplay locked them out of the massive Bluetooth market as well as the Android ecosystem.

There are oh so many Bluetooth speakers out there. Little plastic ones that sound tinny, larger battery-operated speakers that you can take with you and improve the sound quality.
In a departure from the small and the portable is this new speaker from Audioengine (US$299.00).
Over the years, I’ve had the chance to review several small, wooden speakers from Pyramid Distribution. You’ll find links to those reviews at the end of this review. I had assumed those cute little speakers, shaped like acorns or Scottie dogs, would be more fun than functional, but I was proven wrong by every one of those I reviewed.
The market is so flooded with Bluetooth speakers that anyone trying to wedge another speaker into the mix better have perfect audio and unique features to attract attention away from the rest of the contenders. Today I’m going to show you the X-mini CLEAR Bluetooth speaker. X-mini should sound familiar to you.
There are now so many portable speakers available that have Bluetooth, speakerphone capabilities, really good sound for their size, and decent battery life, that choosing one is getting harder and harder. But really, who cares? Just a few short years ago, these technological perks we take for granted were mind-blowing.
Remember the Core wireless speaker? We detailed it back in September when it was still wet behind the ears on Indiegogo. Though only on the crowdfunding website a short while, the device -- which stands out from the crowd on a platform involving holographic audio -- was already seeing notable success.
When it comes to headphones thesedays you have a whole world of choices out there. Along with those choices comes an array of features and price points.

Everybody has those mundane yet paradoxically vastly important decisions to make, and usually every day: Which TV show to watch when both are at the same time? Where to have lunch? What to get, once you decide? Which dress to wear to graduation? Which towels for the guest bathroom? And so on. And on. Such is part of life, just like the sun rising and winter preceding spring.
The Sherwood RX-4508 receiver is an audio receiver; it doesn’t have HDMI jacks so that you can use it as the central hub in your home theater setup. That’s not to say that you couldn’t connect your TV’s audio-out to this receiver’s Aux-in jack for better sound, because you can do that. You can see from the dimensions listed above, the RX-4508 is a sizable piece of equipment.

A few weeks ago, I told you about a portable, wireless TV speaker from Hammacher Schlemmer that lets you bring the sound closer to you without moving the TV. I did a little more research, and I found that the speaker is made by Serene Innovations, which makes a lot of products for people with hearing impairment. I was really interested in something like this for my bedroom TV.
