Soul Party In A Box

We've heard the phrase "party in a box" applied to a lot of different things — boxed wine or 30-packs of Busch, anyone? — but never like this. The Soul Party In A Box ($1,000) is a self-contained, room-rattling speaker system. To get your music in, it features a dock for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, Bluetooth with AptX support, a USB port, and an auxiliary port. To blast it out to the world, it features side-firing dual 6.5" subs, 3" midrange drivers, and 1" tweeters, plus dual front firing 1.5" midrange speakers. Other features include an HDMI output, a karaoke mode with mic input, an included remote control, and a built-in handle for taking the party with you.

  • Samsung Vacuum Tube Soundbar

    Well, we didn't see this one coming. The Samsung F750 Vacuum Tube Soundbar ($650) packs a decidedly audiophile feature — an integrated vacuum tube — into the un-audiophile sound bar form factor. While the goal is warmer, more natural sound, other features — like a gyroscope to optimize sound quality based on height, rotation, and slope and a wireless subwoofer — will likely make a difference too. In keeping with the wireless theme, it also offers Bluetooth for cordlessly connecting your smartphone, tablet, or even TV if it supports that kind of thing.

  • Geneva WorldRadio

    No matter where your travels take you, the Geneva WorldRadio ($300) should be able to find some music to play. Based on the idea of the classic world receiver, the WorldRadio features a digital color display with touch controls, a digital FM tuner with RDS and auto-search, a digital clock, a 3-inch full-range driver for full sound, Bluetooth 2.1 for connecting to a smartphone or tablet, and a 3.5 mm line-in for other audio sources. Available in black, red, or silver.
