AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

I’m as interested in a good “desk” audio system as the next guy, and I have dabbled in assembling various small systems in my office over the last few years.

EAT E-Glo Petit Hybrid Phono Preamplifier

By | April 21st, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

The European Audio Team, better known as E.A.T., has released a valve-based phono pre-amplifier, the E-Glo Petit. (Pictured above and below. Click on image for larger version.)

Can I use a tablet as a replacement for my smartphone?

By | April 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

There are two pieces of tech that are arguably vital for a connected existence in the modern world; smartphones are part of our daily routine, as a tool to communicate with the wider world (as well as serving as a portable entertainment device), while for many, a laptop or computer is crucial for work.

Tablets are meant to fit both these tasks – they’re portable like smartphones and share the same operating systems, but they’re large enough to comfortably run word processors and spreadsheets like a computer.… Read the full article

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition – why pay more for less?

By | April 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

While the shift from physical media has changed the world of music, movies and PC gaming in recent years, console gaming has been a bit more stubborn.
