I have been seeing a lot of speakers that are designed for laptops lately. Remember those Cubik Speakers from Palo Alto Audio Labs. This is the UltraLink UCube speakers, and they run off USB power.
We like to cover some of the most unusual speakers here at cybertheater. There was that Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo ones the other ones, and I’m sure that we did a fine job reporting on the Orb Audio Speakers, several times.
I’m not certain if you are familiar with Kickstarter, but it is a website for amateurs who make some cool tech. You can donate to the fund to make the tech into a reality, and get a chance to get some for yourself.
After reporting on that Logitech Z906 Speaker System, I thought I would report on one that is slightly cheaper, but really is more expensive. This is the speaker system from Infinity known as the TSS-800CHR, and it comes with a center channel speaker and also has a second 3.
I’m sure that some of us have desktop speakers that we use on our home theater. I have some by Logitech Z623 speakers on my entertainment center. These particular ones by Krator were on display at CeBIT, and they have an interesting shape.
These are Thodio iBox speakers, and they are made of durable materials with a high gloss lacquer in the desired color. The body is handcrafted from MDF, oak, teak, mahogany, and other types of wood.
This is the Swans X4 professional active speaker system, and it is designed “for studio near-field monitoring and multimedia desktop environment”. It has active filter technology with a 4-inch woofer and 4/5 inch metal dome tweeter.
At CES 2011, I got to see a lot of home theater furnishings. After a while, they all start to look alike, which is why I admired the Cubik speakers. As you can see, the Cubik speakers are aptly named for their square shape, and look ready to work.
Believe it or not, it has been two to three years since we covered something by Earthquake. It was back in 2008 with the Earthquake Sound MiniMe P10 and P12 as well as the Earthquake subwoofer amplifiers XJ-300R and XJ-600R.
