The cover story on audio systems was informative and showcased some amazing music players (“Loud and Clear”, October 2011). I wish you had also listed some smaller gadgets, like docks and PMPS, but I guess you were focusing on the bigger systems for home entertainment. My parents talk of the tape recorder (I am sure many from my generation haven’t seen that), I have seen the cassette and CD player, and now there’s the music files player. I think a music product like the soundbar is a great addition to innovations. It frees the room of a clutter of speakers and wires, but provides the coveted surround-sound entertainment.
