Audiophiles eager to get their mitts on iRiver’s Astell & Kern-branded AK120 should take note: the portable Mastering Quality Sound player just passed through the FCC’s labs. The $ 1,300 AK120 is the bigger, 2.4-inch sibling to the $ 700 AK100, promising to net deep-pocketed audio perfectionists improved stereo imaging and dynamic range; this is achieved by two Wolfson WM8740 DACs, each of which are dedicated to a single channel. The player features a physical volume knob and packs 64GB of onboard storage with support for up to 192GB through two microSD slots — which is perfect for storing your pick of AV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE, AAC, ALAC and AIFF (and eventually DSD) files, as well. With this next MQS player from A&K sure to hit stores soon, we’re left to wonder what’s the updated word about Neil Young’s streaming take on the action.

Barnes & Noble’s refusal to open its ecosystem has long been one of our principle complaints about the company’s tablet offerings. The Nook HD and HD+ are extremely nice pieces of hardware that have been held back by their own walled software offerings — having a fast device with a nice screen only gets you so far without the proper apps. The company line up to now has been that walling off content allows for a sort of quality control, assuring that apps are developed specifically for the unique form factor of its devices. And while there’s perhaps something to be said for that sentiment in the sometimes-fragmented world of Android devices, it was hard to ignore the fact that offering up exclusive access to content through your own marketplace assures better cash flow. It also, unfortunately, means that without extensive developer outreach, there are sure to be plenty of popular apps that just never make it over to your side of the fence.
With its announcement tonight, B&N acknowledges that, in this case, open is better. The company has responded directly to user feedback and will be issuing a software update to its Nook HD and Nook HD+ devices (sorry Nook Tablet and Color owners) that brings Google Play directly to the desktop. The software will come pre-loaded on new devices and will be available as an over-the-air update. If you can’t wait that long, you’ll also be able to download it directly from the bookseller’s site. The update also brings a few other tweaks to the system, but this is far and away the biggest news. The first question we asked upon getting a quick demo: will you be able to buy content like books, magazines and movies through Play? Yep, that’s coming too.

Bang & Olufsen already offers headphones, and it has the B&O Play line to serve a mobile-oriented world. Wouldn’t it be nice if the two categories mixed? As of today, they do. The B&O Play H3 in-ears and H6 over-ears apply that Danish love of aluminum and leather to the kind of headphones you’d want to pack with your MP3 player or smartphone. The H3 carries 10.8mm drivers, a mini bass port and a 20Hz to 16kHz range in a unibody shape that should hold up to exercise; the slightly more stationary H6 over-ears sport 40mm drivers and a wider 20Hz to 22kHz range. Both have primarily iOS-oriented in-line mics and remotes, although the H6 alone has Monster-sourced daisy chaining support to share tunes with others. Don’t expect a significant break in B&O’s premium pricing just because they’re B&O Play-branded headsets, however. The H3 and H6 will respectively cost €249 and €399 when they hit some retail stores in May, and US pricing isn’t likely to be much cheaper.

Publishers represented by the Authors Guild and Association of American Publishers have filed objections to Amazon’s pursuit of new common top-level domains “. book,” “. author” and “. read. While a few of those gTLDs have already come under fire from whole countries, the prominent book groups told gatekeeper ICANN that “placing such common domains in private hands is plainly anticompetitive,” adding that it would allow “currently dominant, well-capitalized business” to abuse their market power. ICANN plans to designate rights to organizations or business to handle domain suffixes like the current “. com” or “. org” and firms like Google, Microsoft and Amazon have actually sought names like “. app” and “flick,” commonly in competition with each various other. Competitor Barnes & Noble filed its own demonstration, saying that Amazon “would utilize control of these TLDs to suppress competition in the bookselling and publishing sectors.” If such objections are persuasive enough, business can lose not just the domain name in concern, but 20 percent of the $ 185,000 application cost– unquestionably wallet modification for attires like Amazon.

We appreciate any product that lets us not just freely reference Lamb, however likewise blast that band’s tracks in our yard. Which is what Bowers & Wilkins weatherproof AM-1 (Architectural Display) was constructed to do: blare out the tunes no matter the weather condition while preserving a subdued, stylish look. The rustproof speaker, which comes in black or white, is made for simple mounting, could spin 110-degrees from either landscape or portrait positioning and, according to the company’s cases, must provide better noise when placed high up (thanks to an inverted drive unit). Naturally, you don’t have to attach this fella to your outside veranda– it’ll also be right in your home from inside your … house, bar or even that diligently preserved secret storage. Seek the AM-1 to hit retail for $ 300 at some point next month, but buyer beware, you’ll have to provide the trip hop tuneage yourself.

Good information for those planning to give the present that continues refreshing every six pages or so: Barnes & Noble’s hitting its vacation stride by shaving a good $ 20 off the existing price of its last-gen e-reader, down to $ 79. A cost, the business helpfully points out, that comes \* ahem \* “without distracting ads.” The rebate goes into impact tomorrow– the advantage of radiant while reviewing, at the same time, will certainly still cost you $ 119.
Following the arrival of Barnes & Noble’s e-reader products in the UK, today’s the day that the company’s tablets follow suit. The Nook HD and HD + are a pair of scrumptious little high-definition tablets, which could be snagged at shops such as Argos, Sainsbury’s and John Lewis. The 7-inch HD can easily be yours for & pound; 159 with 8GB storage or & pound; 189 for 16GB, while the HD + is priced at & pound; 229 for 16GB and & pound; 269 for 32GB.
There’s no doubt that Barnes & Noble in love with the paper-like interface of the Nook HD +. Not all of its new owners are rather so taken with the retro chic, with the proof being XDA-Developers member verygreen’s early root for the Android tablet (and perhaps its HD relative). The initial code is enough to offer a look of a more digital interface as well as teasers of a CyanogenMod harbor and booting from SD cards. Prior to racing to use the directions at the source, be conscious that the root’s effectiveness might differ wildly in the near future– as of this writing, a familiar defense mechanism dating back to the Nook Color has actually kicked in that declines the root and restores itself to factory stock after eight failed boot attempts. That there’s a root at all will certainly nonetheless be a comfort in the long run to those who such as the concept of a budget tablet without the imposed nostalgia for dead trees.
