Yep, two showstoppers for this year's CES. While I thought the Astell&Kern AK240 was very cool indeed, it's the Creative Sound Blaster Roar wireless speaker gizmo that I can't wait to get my hands on. If it sounds as good as I think it does, this thing is like a Swiss Army Knife for audio geeks like me.

OMG! The AK240 makes my heart go pitter-pat. The look is pure sex, the user interface is sweet, it plays files of all types with a ton of storage, and sounds yummy.

The price? Yeah, there's that.

Sennheiser's booth was a highlight for me not because I've got all that great an interest in gaming and DJ headphones, but because they did such a damned fine job of it!

As usual, Fang Bien, CEO of HiFiMAN, has been hard at work developing new products and a whole bunch of new and prototype gear was available for the seeing and hearing in his room.

Snake oil or genius? BSG Technologies q0l Signal Completion Stage is one of the most controversial products in all of Audiophiledom, but at $2395 a lot of people are never going to give it a shot. At $119 though, their little reveel headphone amp product makes it a no brainer for those curious about the technology.

I was smitten with Paul Barton's NAD VOISO HP50 headphones earlier this year...and now he's digging his hooks into me yet again with his latest creations. Man, my inner-geek lusts after the new Bluesound streaming media products.

If there's any doubt that headphones are part of high-end audio, McIntosh's introduction of the MHA100 should put that to rest. Heck, it's even got a cross-feed circuit!

Two years ago I reports on the acquisition of Stax by giant Chinese speaker maker firm Edifier. Two years is about the amount of time it takes from deciding to move a brand forward, so now is about the time we should see something new from Stax.

And here it is!

The headphone web-world was abuzz about the Hugo prior to CES. So I just had to check out this hi-rez, long-tapped WTA filtered FPGA array based DSD/DXD capable portable DAC/amp.

I think I just heard the AWSA (acronym warning system alarm) go off.

Slowly but surely Velodyne has been quietly making better and better headphones. Quietly, in this case, is the operative word.
