Platin Monaco 5.1.2 wireless surround sound wireless speaker system review – even more immersive than the Monaco 5.1

REVIEW – 6 months ago, I packed up my wonderful Bowers & Wilkins 607 speakers I used for music and TV sound ( along with a subwoofer and two Audioengine speakers for surround) and replaced them with the Platin Monaco 5.1 wireless surround sound speaker system. The Monaco 5.1 is a complete surround sound system—in …

Linner Nova Hearing Aids review – If it’s volume you want, it’s volume you get

REVIEW – As I’ve gotten older, I’ve reached that stage in life where I notice my hearing is not what it used to be. While I can hear fine, It’s understanding I have issues with—especially in a crowded area with a lot of background noise. This past year, the FDA finalized a ruling that allows …

Trettitre TreSound1 HiFi Bluetooth speaker review – It demands to be seen

REVIEW – There’s an old saying from author Margaret Wolfe Hungerford in 1878, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Nothing proves her quote more accurately than the Trettitre TreSound1 Bluetooth speaker. Love it or loathe it, it’s a sight to behold. What is it? The Trettitre TreSound1 is a cone-shaped table-top Bluetooth speaker …

Drop+Etymotic ERX In-ear Monitors review – Accurate to a fault

REVIEW – When I was sent the ERX earphones by Drop+Etymotic (built by Etymotic, tuned by Drop), my first thought was how much they would sound like just another pair of Etymotic earphones. Or would they have their own personality? Let me back up a bit. I’ve reviewed a few Etymotic earphones—and liked them for …

Bowers & Wilkins PX8 headphones review – When you must have the best of everything

REVIEW – Sometimes, you just have to have the very best of something, whether that something is a car, boat, speakers, or even a pair of headphones. As long as there are music-loving people who demand and can have the best, there will be others more than happy to fill that desire. British audio company …

Ampace P600 Portable Power Station review – The right amount of power for the right situation

REVIEW – If you’re in the market for a large battery power station, this is a great time to buy. The selection is impressive and prices keep decreasing as capacity and features increase. It seems like everybody now makes a power station. Ampace is a company with a single available power station (so far), but …

1MORE Aero True wireless active noise cancelling headphones review – One more earphone to consider

REVIEW – Many times, I’ve reviewed a new pair of earphones or headphones and thought to myself, “Yet one more earphone/headphone to review.” This time I’m reviewing an earphone called 1MORE, so it’s more than appropriate to say that now. The 1MORE Aero True Wireless Active Noise Cancelling Headphones (1MORE calls them earbuds, I call …

Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium with Quick Keys review – Maybe the best pen tablet yet

REVIEW – For those digital artists who are looking to buy a pen display, it’s easy to overlook the pen tablets that started it all—those black slates with no built-in screen that lay flat on a desk. True, display tablets are wonderful—I use one every day, but I didn’t begin my career using one. That …

Toshiba CAF-Z85US Air Purifier review – Totally silent, totally clean

REVIEW – If you suffer from allergies, coughing, or just feeling down during various seasons, it may be related to the air quality in your home. For reasons I haven’t figured out, our family seems to be more sensitive to our environment than we used to be. I don’t think it’s the food we eat—my …

Tronsmart Bang Mini Portable Party Speaker review – She may be mini, but she be fierce

REVIEW – As the holidays approach, you may be thinking of either giving—or getting—a Bluetooth speaker as a gift. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there are so many to choose from, I almost feel sorry for the person who has to choose. I pay close attention to what’s available and I’m overwhelmed. Besides the big players in …

Huion Kamvas 24 Plus Pen Display review – It’s both a drawing tablet AND a monitor!

REVIEW – If you’re a digital artist, graphic designer, or just a photo hobbyist and you don’t already own a graphics tablet, you may need to rethink that. There are so many choices today among tablets, it’s becoming overwhelming. In digital prehistoric times, there was one company that made graphics tablets—Wacom. They were quite simply …

Muzen Original III AM/FM Radio & Bluetooth Speaker review – Back to the future

REVIEW – Let me say upfront that I am a fan of mid-century modern design. I love the clean, uncluttered lines, the smooth expanse of wood in the furniture, and especially the “atomic ranch” look of that period’s TVs and radios. Mid-century also recalls a simpler time that I’m sure I look back on with …

Atezr P20 Plus laser engraving machine review – It’s not for everyone, but perfect for those who want one

REVIEW – The Gadgeteer is a site for people who love gadgets (duh). Some of those gadgets will be common items and some may be the kind of gadgets that have limited appeal—except to those who can appreciate what it can do. Such is the case with the Atezr P20 Plus Laser Engraving Machine.  This …

Gooloo GTX280 Portable Power Station review – Keep it in your car

REVIEW – The portable power station market is getting interesting. Just a few years ago, all you could get were small, hand-held units with an AV outlet, a couple of USB ports and a 12V “cigarette lighter” port—all fairly basic stuff. Now, everybody seems to offer power stations in a vast array of sizes, ports, …

LemiPower 1536Wh LiFePO4 Power Station review – Power, power and more power

REVIEW – Since our last hurricane in Central Florida, I’ve become interested (my wife says obsessed) with battery power stations. These mini “generators” can power almost any device in your home (depending on their size and power) when the power goes out. You might think, ”Well, any gas generator can do that!” True, but gas …
