Samsung unveils new digital audio lineup
Samsung has revealed a host of new audio goodies at CES, including the HW-F750 soundbar (the world's first soundbar with a valve amplifier) and the NFC-toting DA-F60 portable speaker which ditches cables for wireless Bluetooth audio streaming. The HT-F9750W 1,330W 7.1 home theatre system and Sammy's premium BD-F7500 Blu-ray player round off things rather nicely, though you'll need a substantial amount of cash to nab the lot.
Griffin gets busy at CES
Griffin has been rather busy at CES by announcing a slew of new products, a few of which have caught Ofice Cat's keen eyes. He's particularly taken with the £80 WoodTone headphones and the sheer overkill of the £80 PowerDock 5 which can charge up to five iPads simultaneously. Musically inclined gadgeteers might also be interested in Griffin's £114 StudioConnect with Lightning which provides your iPad with connectivity for guitars, stereo audio, MIDI-in and MIDI-out, as well as Lightning charging support.
Garmin outs Oregon GPS series
Office Cat's sense of direction is unrivalled in the Stuff Office, but Garmin's latest Oregon 600/650 outdoor GPS series (starting from £320) will come in handy for those of you who tend to wander into ditches and bushes time and time again. A GPS/GLONASS GPS receiver provides faster and more accurate positioning, while an 8MP camera with geocaching is ideal for recording your ramblings. With 16 hours on one charge, you'll burn off plenty of that festive fat too.
