The speaker will give you up to 800mWatt x 2ch, which should be enough for use in any small room. The Buffalo BSSP07 requires four AA batteries or a spare USB port to operate. Nothing on pricing just yet, but it shouldn’t cause you too much pain.

Gefen Unveils 5.1 Surround-to-Stereo Signal ConverterGefen, the company known for their signal switchers and converters, has announced the GefenTV Digital Audio Decoder, which remixes 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround audio for stereo (L/R) outputs. What this means is that the unit lets any movie or television program broadcasting in 5.1 Dolby digital audio to be decoded, and output on a pair of analog speakers.

This will give two-channel stereo systems the ability to convey some of the same surround sound information as a proper 5.1 system, but without the artificialness that usually accompanies such enhancement.

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2008

iQue Grill with stereo & on-board computer controlsThis may be the best grill ever. They say that dogs are man’s best friend, but that’s just not true. A grill is a man’s best friend. The way to our hearts is through our stomachs after all. This grill has such features as an optional built-in CD/stereo system to keep you entertained while flipping steaks and burgers.

The 875 square inches of grill island is all about convenience and letting you cook like a pro.

BoomCooler: Stereo in an cooler

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2008

BoomCooler: Stereo in an coolerThe BoomCooler is exactly what it sounds like, a hybrid of a boombox and a cooler. Not to be confused by the BamCooler, which is how chef Emeril Lagasse keeps his tunes cool while shouting BAM. If you know a hillbilly or are a hillbilly, I think you found your next purchase. BoomCooler makes it easy to roll your tunes with you. You ARE the party. It sports two Sony Xplod 6” x 9” 240-watt max 4-way speakers, a 1100-watt max 10” Subwoofer and a 4-channel 600-watt amp. It’s also compatible with iPod, Sirius radio, MP3, CD and AM/FM radio.

There is however a slight catch. It won’t hold your beer. Dry goods only. Something tells me if you are buying this, you’ve got some contraband dry goods to put in it in place of your beer. It will be the best $900 you’ve ever spent. You can even sit your mullet-headed kid on it.

Turntable Watch from Tokidoki is retro cool

Turntable Watch from Tokidoki is retro cool
It doesn’t get more 80′s then this. The Tokidoki company has come up with this nice looking watch that outdoes the turntable watch we told you about many months ago.

It ups the retro pop feel with vibrant colors and a nice 80s style. It makes me feel like cranking some Huey Lewis and the News while messing around on my hoverboard. The vinyl face rotates as each second ticks by. The time is displayed on the left side, looking like a radio dial. Stainless steel with leather strap. My geek mind is convinced that if you wear something this outrageously retro, Doc Brown will show up in his DeLorean. Which is why I’m getting one.

Fake stereo protects your real stereo
Whether you find yourself in a so called good part of town or bad, there are thieves everywhere just waiting to cash in on your devices. All it really takes to fool these fools is a bit of DIY to fake them out.

You’ll need some Velcro, a generous helping of epoxy glue and an old cassette tape. Just follow the instructions and hopefully it will keep you from getting ripped off. Because let’s face it, you’ve gotta be a real bottom feeder of a criminal to be stealing cassette decks in 2008.
