TDK Sound Cube

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2011

TDK was a big name back in the days of cassettes, but they really haven’t done anything in the last many years, until recently with their retro boombox, and now this portable stereo. And judging by how awesome these devices look, we are glad to have them back.

The Sound Cube costs $300 and is part of TDK’s Life on Record audio series. The 17-pound portable enclosure measures 9.8″ x 9.8″ x 9.8″ and features a pair of 5-1/4″ full-range coax drivers, and the other two sides have passive reflectors that look like speakers. You place it in the center of your room and it pumps sound out.

Stereolizer turns your iPad into a Stereo

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2011

Here is a great way to turn your iPad into a retro music player. Stereolizer is a new iPad app that allows you to give your iPad some 1980′s style and it provides some handy features too. The Stereolizer iPad app includes access to more than 10,000 streaming web radio stations and lets you arrange your favorite stations into 3 presets of 10 radios each.

While listening to the radio, you can record audio to virtual tapes direct from the radio or audio messages via the built in mic. Just like a retro stereo. After you’ve recorded a collection you can then eject the virtual tape to view and classify, remove or rename them using the iPad keyboard. Pretty cool.

Apple buys Wi-Gear to build stereo Bluetooth headphones

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on November 9th, 2010

We’ve seen more than our share of third-party Bluetooth devices being offered for Apple’s devices, so it would make sense for Apple to make their own. So it is no surprise that Apple might want in on the Bluetooth accessory game business.

Apple has just acquired Wi-Gear, a company that made a stereo headset called iMuffs. One of the company’s co-founders now lists himself as an iOS Bluetooth Engineer at Apple and it looks like Wi-Gear has ceased operations.

Ikonoskop A-cam3D shoots 1080p RAW video in stereo

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2010

It looks like a new version of a view-master. That’s because this baby is all about shooting 1080p RAW video in stereo. We don’t know much about it right now, but Ikonoskop is just teasing us with some specs. One thing we do know is that we likely won’t be able to afford one.

But we want one. The company already has a $10k 1080p RAW camera, the A-cam dII, and now it’s using the same tech for 3D. With battery and memory this guy weighs 6 pounds and will be able to record 25 or 30 fps in individual RAW sequences and will be built on order.

Q-TV2 Speakers put stereo speakers and a subwoofer behind your HDTV

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2009

We don’t know for sure if the sound on this thing is awesome or sucky, but we love the design in which Q Acoustics hides a complete speaker system behind your flat panel TV. The setup works with TVs between 30 and 42 inches and attaches to an existing frame. It will even work with your TV sitting on a stand.

Right now it’s only available in Europe for $500. Sure it’s pricey but it gets the speakers out of the way and chances are it’s better than the speakers built into your TV.

Zoom Q3 mini camcorder with stereo microphones

Posted in Camcorders by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2009

Zoom Q3 mini camcorder with pro micPeople love small camcorders like the flip because they are convenient and compact. The problem is that you sacrifice audio quality for that small size. The audio just plain stinks. I don’t have to tell you. However, there may just be a way to have that small size and decent audio together in one package.

The Zoom Q3 wants to be that solution. The Q3 is comparably small and features USB connectivity, along with stereo microphones that should outdo the flip. This camera records in Mpeg4 and with a 32GB memory card you can record up to 16 hours of video.
