[MUSIC] Vizio has unleashed its 2017 range of audio products, which now includes new soundbars and a portable wireless speaker. The SmartCast Crave Go is a WiFi/Bluetooth speaker with a six-hour battery life. It offers Chromecast compatibility in the home, which also lets it work in tandem with other Google multi-room speakers. And then operates on Bluetooth outside the home. The speaker offers a brushed metal and rubberized finish. And it's complete with a kickstand. It's available now for $199. Meanwhile, VIZIO's newest home theater speaker, the VIZIO Smartcast 36 inch 5.1 Wireless Sound Bar System. Is available for $250. It offers wireless surrounds and a large sub woofer. Like the portable speaker it offers both Bluetooth and Chromecast as well as both optical and co-axial digital. The soundbar can be controlled by the company's Smartcast app or via any app that includes cast compatibility. If $250.00 is a bit too much the range also includes 28 inch blue tooth only bar for $80.00. For more if Vizo's new 2017 speakers head over to cnet.com.
