JVC Micro Audio Systems

JVC have been showing off a range of new Micro Audio Systems that integrate nicely with an iPod. I say nicely – the iPod simply slots into a slot at the top, and just sits there looking gormless against the giant black behemoth beneath it! The JVC system might be micro in Hi-Fi terms, but […]

Munny Speaker

A little while ago we wrote about the SpeakerBuddy which reminded us of a cowering child with a hoodie (not sure what that says about our state of mind) but kitting out your Hi-Fi with little people shaped speakers can be a bit on the pricy side. With the recession looming we all need to […]

Chord Chordette Gem Bluetooth HiFi wireless music streamer

The Chord Bluetooth Chordette Gem is a brand new music streamer that’ll let you stream music across a Bluetooth connection (yes, even your mobile phone) direct to your HiFi.
