By Eric Nathal Voice Control Amazon is heating up the streaming box market with their new Fire TV.  Similar to Apple TV and Roku – the device streams movies, TV shows, and music from various providers like Pandora, Netflix and Hulu.  Several ingenious features set it apart from the competition; it uses voice commands to search for content, allows you to play video games and for the first time you can watch Showtime on a streaming device.  Amazon Fire TV is extremely easy to use, set up takes less than 3 minutes and at $99 it’s a bargain;  Rugged Hi-Fi Touted as the world’s first true indoor-outdoor rugged Hi-Fi speaker, the BRAVEN BRV-X truly delivers.  This is the sort of speaker you can confidently bring the beach, camping or even kayaking. It’s IPX5 water-resistant rated and with its rugged design it can withstand drops, bumps, rain and anything else you can think of. One of the really cool features is BRAVEN’s TrueWireless™ technology; it allows for easy wireless pairing with a second BRV-X for a true left and right stereo sound using two BRV-X speakers.The BRV-X allows for over 12 hours of continuous HD sound on a full charge, has a built-in speakerphone for calls and can charge USB devices such as smartphones, cameras andtablets; $199.99; Game Changer Looking to improve your game?

The Stanmore has the look and feel of a legendary Marshall guitar amplifier – complete with vintage-looking fret, gold details, iconic gold piping and script logo; You can connect to your smart device wirelessly via Bluetooth, use the RCA input to plug in your vinyl player or simply connect the coil cord that’s included to your phone using the 3.5mm auxiliary input; $400; Click here to view post on the July/August 2014 issue.
