This week's gadget is in honor of Scott's pinch hitting for Leo. It's the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio Portable Bluetooth speaker. It's 4.6 pounds and has two 3-inch woofers, two 3/4-inch tweeters, and two passive radiators. There's no audio-in jack, as it works via Bluetooth. It's battery powered, and can last 5 hours on one charge. 15 watts per active speaker for a total output of 60 watts. Frequency response is stated as 60Hz to 20kHz. List price is $399.99, but discounts are widely available.
It’s on Amazon for $180.00. You can also get a discount through Sprint if you buy the HTC ONE M8 phone, which is specially customized by Harmon Kardon to compliment the Onyx Studio. Scott says that it's a semi respectable frequency response range. But at around five pounds, you're not going to take it anywhere. But it would make a great portable backyard speaker.
Dick also says that Crossley makes a turntable that records to an SD card as you play an LP. It's pretty cool and does a decent job.
