Kanto Audio Shows TUK Powered Speakers at CES 2019

We were invited to take a look at the Kanto Audio suite at CES by their PR firm, and the brand itself has been on my mind for a while now- offering good quality powered monitor speakers at various price points. This year they are bringing out their new high-end TUK powered speakers, which were first shown off last year, and the entire spec sheet reads like a must-have for many audio enthusiasts, including yours truly. The TUK comes in white or black color schemes, is rated at 130 W RMS for the pair, and features AMT tweeters with 5.25" aluminium concave cone drivers coupled with an on-board DSP and a Class D amp.

I/O includes Bluetooth 4.2 with Qualcoom AptX HD and AAC codec support for those who need it, but most will end up using one of the several wired options encompassing optical TOSLINK, RCA and Phone inputs, a USB DAC for us PC users, subwoofer out, and a headphone jack. So if you fancy connecting a turntable to it to play some old vinyls, go for it! Oh, it also has a USB charger to use with portable media players as well. Read past the break for more on the TUK and other Kanto Audio products we saw this past week.

ASUS Intros VP248QGL-P Low-cost FreeSync Monitor

ASUS today introduced the VP248QGL-P, a cost-effective 24-inch gaming-grade monitor with AMD FreeSync technology support. If you can get past the TN-film panel with 1080p resolution, you'll also find that it features response times as low as 1 ms, and up to 75 Hz refresh-rates. Viewing angles are 170°/160° (H/V). Among its feature-set is ASUS Splendid display management software, blue light filtering, and ASUS GamePlus, which is a collection of game genre-specific display presets.

Cougar Shows New Gaming Keyboard with Integrated Speakers

Probably the most oddball fusion of two components, Cougar unveiled a prototype gaming keyboard with integrated stereo speakers. The body design appears to be an evolution of the company's Attack X3, with a few polygonal cutouts along the side-walls. These speakers feature drivers found in notebooks, and take advantage of the hollow space inside the keyboard, and its metal base. The keyboard takes audio input from a standard 3.5 mm jack, while a USB connection drives the rest of it (probably including an amplifier for the speakers). There's also a downstream 3.5 mm jack to plug in your headphones, which probably mutes these tweeters integrated speakers, when your headphones are plugged in. How does it sound? Like your laptop. As a keyboard itself, you get a standard 104-key layout with RGB LED illumination, and special chrome keycaps over the WASD and arrow keys.

Turtle Beach Announces the HyperSound Glass

Turtle Beach Corporation, a leading audio technology company for over 40 years, has achieved another significant breakthrough with its HyperSound technology, as the company revealed today it is now able to create directional audio using a transparent pane of glass. The Company's latest innovation opens the doors for exploration into future glass-based directional audio products and applications in the consumer, commercial and hearing healthcare spaces.

"The advancements the HyperSound team is making with directional audio are simply amazing - some of the biggest breakthroughs in audio technology to come along in decades," said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. "Being able to create highly directional audio using glass opens up many potential opportunities, including integrating into desktop monitors, commercial displays, desktop speakers, and automotive dashboard glass to provide warnings directed specifically at the driver… pretty much anywhere there's glass there's a potential for audio. As we progress the technology, this also opens up licensing possibilities to external parties looking for ways to integrate the latest audio technology into their products. Again, it's still early in development and the applications are simply ideas on the drawing board, but at the same time having HyperSound directional audio working on glass is very exciting and we can't wait to show it publicly for the first time at E3."
