Definitive's newest StudioMonitor loudspeakers are designed to bring big sound in a small package. It's the first new bookshelf speaker from the company in nearly a decade and Definitive has added a few new tricks to the lineup. All three models - the SM 45, 55 and 65 - offer up the company's Balanced Double Surround System bass/midrange drivers and Pure Aluminum dome tweeters to ensure crystal clear highs. The 55 and 65 add top-mounted bass radiators for some extra low frequency response.
The Sonos music system is a very cool way to get whole home audio without having to deal with wires and installation. It's also pretty convenient in terms of giving you access to all of your digital music wherever you want it. Best of all, for those on a tighter budget anyway, it's nice and cheap to delve into. The Play:3 is the latest from Sonos and it comes in at just $299. It boasts three drivers - two mids and a tweeter - each of which boasts a dedicated Class-D amplifiers. It's got a passive bass radiator that fires from the back as well so you don't miss out on those lows.
