Bluesound launched at last year’s CES, causing me to write a post titled, “Is Bluesound an Audiophile Sonos Killer?” Since then the company has gone on to prove its worth with high-res, 24/192 file playback and a terrific control app that lets users easily stream and enjoy music all around their homes.

When it comes to guitars, Gibson knows a thing or two. And perhaps no guitar in its inventory is as well known as the Les Paul series. Les Paul, as you know, pioneered the solid-body guitar (as well as multi-track recording) and the world of music has never been the same.
