Build your own speaker stack with Soundots modular speakers

Soundots has managed to stand out in the sea of wireless speakers at CES with its Lego-like modular speaker system that wirelessly, and seamlessly, links together into any shape or size.

At first glance a familiar brick-sized wireless speaker, albeit with a hefty dose of flashing lights, the Soundots XCEL Ai-1 speakers come into their own when connected together. Whether stacked on top of each other or placed side-by-side, the Soundots instantly connect and spread the sound between the speakers.

So you can make a curved soundbar configuration in front of your TV, stack a pair together to boost the volume, or go mad and pile them high for a glowing wall of sound. You can play music via Bluetooth or connect via the aux in or optical digital connections - and they even support hi-res audio.

The speakers then connect to each other via digital optical connections hidden in the edges of the speakers and thanks to digital signal processing the sound is tuned according to your set-up.

One Soundot speaker costs $290, while you can also buy them in packs of multiple speakers for the full effect.
