It's hard to argue - streaming services have a way to go before their audio quality is up to snuff.  This goes double for smartphones and tablets, which tend to focus more on having plenty of apps than on the richness of their sound. Dolby, as you might imagine, would like to change that.  They're doing so too, thanks to the addition of Dolby Digital Plus to a wide range of devices from companies like HP, Acer, Lenovo and Samsung.  Samsung is also going to be adding Digital Plus capabilities to their Acetrax streaming app for European Blu-ray players.

It's that time of year again. 2012 has begun and it's time for everyone in the electronics business to show off everything they're bringing to market.  First up from the Consumer Electronics Show is Samsung, who unveiled, among other things, a 55" OLED TV. Samsung is the second company to announce a 55" OLED this year with LG being the first.  Like LG's set it's incredibly thin and boasts crystal clear images, a response time that's too small for even the most observant of people to notice and a ludicrous contrast.  Sadly, also like LG's set, Samsung's new 55" OLED doesn't have a price attached.  All we know right now is that it's coming sometime this year.

Though Google TV had a rocky start it's showing some signs of improvement.  It's also becoming more widely adopted which is a good thing for a platform that's trying to woo more customers and developers.  LG is the latest to announce a Google TV infused television - one that they'll be showing at CES next week.

One of the big problems with music streaming is the lack of support for lossless audio files like FLAC and WAV, but Pioneer's new networked audio players can handle both.  They also offer compatibility with Apple's lossless format through AirPlay as well as the usual assortment of formats - MP3, WMA and AAC.  They can even stream from online audio sources like Pandora and iHeartRadio.

Typically before CES all the news tends to be about new product releases and companies embracing new technologies, but the news out of Onkyo today is much different.  Gibson, a company best known for its legendary Les Paul guitar line, has bought out a majority share of Onkyo USA and a good chunk of Onkyo Japan too.  These moves make Gibson the second highest shareholder in the Onkyo Corporation.

When LG announced that they were bringing a 55" OLED television to CES, everything they mentioned pointed toward the TV being a prototype.  After all, there hasn't been a TV like it in production - OLEDs have thusfar been ridiculously small.  It turns out the display will be released to general consumers after all, in the latter half of 2012.  According to OLED-Display LG is expanding its OLED output from 4,000 sheets a month to 12,000 with plans to mass produce the panels in the third quarter of the year.

If LG was simply bringing an 84" set to CES 2012 the news would make the rounds.  But the massive display is more than just a 1080p TV that attracts attention through bigness.  LG's new television has plenty going on under the hood, not the least of which is an Ultra Definition (3840 x 2160) screen resolution that puts it at four times that of full  HD.
