Leave it to Sony to deliver odd-ball futuristic designs. The company's latest CMT-CX5 \"HiFi\" system sure is a looker, and could easily be mistaken as the lovechild of its S2 tablet and B&W's Zeppelin. This made for iPhone rig packs 40 watts of RMS power in its modular design with removable

Philips has been on somewhat of a roll with new releases overseas, and the outfit's new SoundSphere might just be the most intriguing yet. Generally speaking, home stereos don't do much for us, but the minty fresh MCi900 and MCD900 definitely add a fresh touch on an age-old concept. Both systems ar

We've been playing with the Altec Lansing inMotion Classic iMT620 for a few days now, and before you think \"man, not another iPhone stereo dock,\" look again. It was (mostly) love at first sight when we spotted this mini boombox -- sharp corners and minimalism are what Altec Lansing does best these

Sony just got around to confirming its new line of Giga Juke home audio players -- at least in the UK -- after letting them float around on the internet for a good couple of months. The networked SC55PKE has 80GB of storage, 16x CD ripping, a 4.3

If you're looking for something a bit beefier-looking than Apple's own much-maligned iPod Hi-Fi, Logitech may have just the speaker system for you.
