Onkyo is not one to miss out on audio trends. Any time that Dolby or DTS dreams up a new innovation — holographic, object-based, bone-induction surround, for example — you know that Onkyo will be the first to feature it in their AV receivers.

With Snugs custom eartips, why settle for one-size-fits-all earphones when you can easily go custom?

The Playlist (pictured) is a wireless home speaker but unlike most of its countless brethren, it has Chromecast built-in, and its D/A converter supports 24-bit/96-kHz high-resolution audio. The BassPro Go, uniquely, is designed to function as a car subwoofer, as well as a portable speaker.

If you find that there are dozens of WiFi networks that show up when you go to connect your wireless devices, the Portal Router may be for you. In congested areas, like apartment buildings, dozens of users may be fighting to get an internet signal over the same channel on the same band (either 5 GHz or the extremely crowded 2.4 GHz band). The Portal router offers technology that can move you away from the crowds to get the best internet access possible.

Who says your ears have to be covered up while listening to music? The JBL Soundgear wraps around the neck, leaving your unencumbered ears free to enjoy a conversation, the sounds of nature, or just to keep an ear on the kids while immersing yourself in music.

The Explorer audio player from Echobox, crafted from solid blocks of luxurious wood, is easily the most attractive player on the CES show floor. While most companies are making blocky (or triangularly - looking at you, Mr. Young) plastic players, the Explorer looks more like a flask of aged whiskey than a piece of high-end audio gear.

Congratulations on waking up from that 10-year coma. Big yawn. While you were sleeping, wireless in-ear headphones became a thing. Actually, they are now a big thing. The HD1 joins Sennheiser’s Momentum lineup as one of the newest offerings.

Low, flat rectangular black boxes with a few buttons and displays. Boring. You need to add a little buzz to your stereo shelf. For example, how about a Beehive? If you’re looking for a tube-driven headphone amplifier and DAC, this might be the hive for you.
