Speakers that look a Wii bit familiar

Posted in Speakers,Wii,Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2008

Wii Speakers
Now that you’ve finally found a Wii and bought a couple of cool games, it’s time to shell out some money on a butt-load of accessories. What do I recommend? I’m glad you asked. I hear the Wii Bowie Knife is a pretty nifty accessory, and they say the dog leash attachment makes it feel like you are really walking a dog even if it is just a wiimote and some string. The Wiimote rotary phone attachment even makes it feel like you are making authentic In-game calls. But I’d have to say that one of the neater Wii inspired items are these speakers from Fenda Tech.

The subwoofer looks like an oversized Wii while the speakers look like Wii Nunchuks! The system “intensifies your gaming with a soundfield that surrounds you.” When it’s available later this year, it will cost you around $50.

Posted in Home Theater,Logitech,Speakers by Darrin Olson on January 6th, 2008

Logitech Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System for your computerSo now that there are becoming more and more high quality movies, games and music available to download from the intertubes onto your computer, the next thing a person finds themselves needing (aside from getting that content over to their living room) is a higher quality display and sound system to take advantage of all this advanced media technology. This year at CES, Logitech is coming through with the sound portion of this equation by launching the Logitech Z Cinema surround sound system.

This new speaker system consists of just two satellite speakers (no rears) and a subwoofer along with what Logitech calls “SRS TruSurround HD” to put your desk chair in the middle of the surround sound action. The speakers have a 180W hybrid Class D + Class AB tri-amp, two-way satellite speakers and an 8″ subwoofer along with 24-bit audio via a USB connection. If for some reason you are unable to play your digital audio through the PC that the speakers are connected to, you can also just connect the player to an input jack to play directly through the speakers. Also, in the event that you don’t already have a media center remote control with your system, Logitech is throwing one is as well.

Vivid Audio G1 Giya super speaker

If you’re looking for an extravagant after Christmas gift for yourself, you might want to look into Vivid Audio’s latest offering. The Giya G1 has an interesting eclectic, almost organic look that resembles some magical artifact. It comes in a variety of automotive paint finishes and is being tauted as a real treat to ears with better then average sound quality.

The included speakers are made using patented cabinet construction and bass loading. The smaller speakers use double drivers on the front and back of the speaker in a bipole radiating fashion and the dual 12″ are positioned on the sides. Are you ready for the price yet? Luckily, you are probably sitting down. These come with the hefty price tag of $54,000 and will be displayed at CES 2008. I’m pretty sure the Bionic Man’s ears aren’t worth that much.

iPond fish tank has speaker and headphones jack, too small for fishAt first glance this little speaker/fish tank might look like an media player with a video of a fish on it, but if you watch long enough you’ll notice that the fish never leaves the screen, and it doesn’t shut off. The device is called the iPond (yet another clever ‘i’ name) and is being sold in Australia as a small portable aquarium complete with gravel on the bottom and a live fish. It also contains a speaker built into the bottom and a headphone jack to plug in your MP3 player, but some are complaining that this doesn’t leave a lot of room for the fish.

Inside the iPond is a Siamese fighting fish that might usually be sold in smaller tanks, but not quite this small. In fact the RSPCA in Australia is asking that the small portable tank be banned since it is not providing an adequate environment with it’s 2.5+ cups of water. They say the fish requires a minimum of closer to 3 gallons of water.
