Heard of a home theater in a box? The Samsung HT-D7100 takes that notion literally.

"The world's smallest portable record player" by Stokyo rides around in a circle on your LP, playing sound through the van's speaker. It's not new (we highlighted it in 2009, and have seen similar models for at least 10 years), but it never fails to bring a smile to people's faces.
Panasonic is updating its stylish iPod/iPhone speaker systems for 2011. Unlike many competitors, some of these models also offer CD playback--a nice bonus for those of us who haven't ripped everything yet.
