Arcam's next-gen Solo Movie package

The striking news from Arcam over in Las Vegas has been the preview of its new Solo Movie home cinema system, which features HD audio decoding and aptX Bluetooth streaming among its specifications.

Due to make its European bow at the High End Show in Munich, Solo Movie is expected to retail for around £2000 here in the UK and can play Blu-ray, CD, DVD-Audio, DVD-Video and SACD discs.

Sharp's wireless high-res player

It's been in the pipeline for a while now - albeit in prototype form - but now Sharp has confirmed that its SD-WH1000 will be released this year, streaming high-resolution audio and HD video wirelessly.

The device can receive 24-bit/96kHz audio from a NAS over wi-fi, a hard drive via USB or through a DAC, while it will also send high definition 1080p video to your TV.

Kube portable speaker and coolbox

CES wouldn't be the show it is without some of the more individual products on show, and a collaboration between Polk Audio and Thomas & Darden has produced one such item that caught our attention.

Kube is the device that solves the age-old problem of deciding whether to take a portable speaker or a cool box with you to the park or beach - because it combines both. Not so much outside-of-the-box thinking as in it?
