Across the street from the convention center, find memorabilia from last week's <strike>hysterical</strike> historical event. Blue pant suits are buy-one-get-one-free, but the Jonathan Edward's bobble-head dolls (hey, you have order these months in advance, so who knew!) were my favorites.

Dynaudio make great sounding speakers, but they're usually very pricey. The new DM series, made in Denmark, start as little as $875 pair for the DM 2/7, a two way with a 6-1/2" woofer (first on left) and as high as $1,350 a pair for the two-way DM 2/10 with a 10" woofer. Available in faux cherry or black, they're yeoman-like, but look promising.

Members of the Studio series (the lower tier of Paradigm's Reference series) get a refresh starting this year into next. Here's what the new line will look like.

As beautiful looking subwoofers go, here's another one. The 15" driver has a 3" peak-to-peak excursion that necessitates a special grill (not shown). 3,000 watts (7,500 watts dynamic) of class D power. $2,500.

Things are looking up for Martin Logan as they move into in-ceiling speakers. The Helos 100 is a two way speaker which sits at an angle in your ceiling so you can aim it at your listening area. The tweeter sticks out like a mushroom and is also aimed at the listening area. An aluminum cone, Vojtko sourced crossover, a contour switch all add to the Helos' "not me too" approach. $500/each.

I shot this standing alone.

The BD1 control center from the Thiel Zoet collaboration is shown here driving multiple Thiel SCS4D speakers. The current version of the controller can only accept optical and coaxial digital signals, and can distribute Dolby Digital and DTS audio as well. However, TrueHD and DTS-HD MA will have to wait for another version (I'm guessing the BD2) that will come out sometime next year.

This is the latest trend in whole house mobility. Face it, you'll be in the kitchen, the den, the bedroom, the bathroom or the garage with your iPod Touch not far from hand. But nobody carries around a remote. Other companies making the iPod Touch part of their tool drawer include SpeakerCraft. The ability is there, why not use it?

The Thiel SCS4D is an the IP addressable version of their SCS4 debuted at the last CES. The SCSrD is powered by 250 watts of class-D amplification. The Cat5e cable in the back and the power chord are the only indications that we're not in Kansas anymore.
