Philips Shoqbox

When it comes to portable Bluetooth speakers, you've got a lot of options — but few as rugged as the Philips Shoqbox ($180). This roughly tube-shaped speaker features two 4-watt neodymium speaker drivers, dual bass radiators, an eight-hour rechargeable lithium battery, Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming, a water resistant cover to protect the USB charging port and 3.5mm aux jack, a shock- and splash-proof design, and a built-in metal loop for clipping it to your bag or belt using a carabiner.

  • Jawbone Big Jambox

    Like your Jambox, but wish it had just a little more oomph? Say hello to the Jawbone Big Jambox ($280). Looking enough like its predecessor that you might not notice the difference at first glance, the Big Jambox is, in fact, a bigger Jambox, featuring the same Bluetooth music streaming and hands-free mojo as the original, but with more powerful precision-tuned drivers and dual passive bass radiators for bigger sound, a 15-hour built-in rechargeable battery, LiveAudio technology, and the ability to receive updates via Jawbone's MyTalk website. Available in graphite, white, and red.

  • Rubicon Atomic Preamp

    We're not going to pretend to understand what a Rubidium atomic clock — 100,000 times more stable than a traditional crystal oscillator! — has to do with sound quality, but we do know that the Rubicon Atomic Preamp ($TBA) is the first DAC to ship with one. Other features include Antelope's 64-bit Accoustically Focused Clocking technology, 384 kHz USB streaming, DLNA support, dual stage headphone amps, and dual S/PDIF de-jittered outputs. [via]
