CES - Blaupunkt unveils speakers that double as car subwoofer

Blaupunkt unveils portable speakers that can be used at home and in the car.

Stereo speaker maker Blaupunkt is showing off portable speakers that can also double as a powered subwoofer for a car stereo system at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Music devices can be hooked up to the speakers, named Velocity 2Go, through a 3.5-millimeter headphone input jack, the company said. There are also rear-panel RCA inputs for use with a home stereo, preamplifier, TV set, or other audio device.

Velocity 2Go's built-in amplifiers are capable of up to 160 watts of power when plugged in or using a standard 12-volt car battery, and 60 watts of power when using eight standard rechargeable AA batteries.

Velocity 2Go is already available in two sizes. The Velocity 2Go 5 has dual 5-1/4-inch woofers and a pair of 3/4 inch tweeters in an 8-liter casing. The larger portable speaker, the Velocity 2Go 6, has two 6-1/2-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeters in a 15-liter enclosure, making it capable of higher output.

The Velocity 2Go 5 sells in the U.S. for $399.95, while the Velocity 2Go 6 is available for US$449.95. The company is also offering the QuickOut car dock as an option for US$119.95.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
