This multipurpose speaker is a great budget speakerphone for anyone who does conference calls — it’s the perfect way to give your ears a break from headphones during meetings. It gets surprisingly loud for its small footprint and the built-in clip allows it to attach to most monitors, for a clutter-free workspace. It can also stand alone. The CA-2890BT offers both USB (A or C via an included adapter) and Bluetooth 5.0.


Andover Songbird Music Streamer


The Songbird network music player from Andover Audio gives you an amazingly flexible highresolution — and high-value — streaming platform. You can be up and running with this streamer inside of five minutes. And it’s small — a little larger than a tin of Altoids — so it’s easy to tuck it out of the way. The Songbird literally talks you through the straightforward setup process with spoken instructions from its app via your system, so it’s easy to start enjoying streaming audio right out of the box. And its onboard DAC really punches above its weight, with up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution from Tidal and Qobuz plus support for other popular streaming platforms including Amazon Music and Spotify.

The JBL EON ONE MK2 batterypowered column PA packs a class-leading acoustic package, 5-channel digital mixer, dbx and Lexicon DSP, Bluetooth functions and universal app control into a lightweight, portable package that can be carried in one hand. The EON ONE MK2 delivers the fidelity JBL is legendary for, combining a geometrically optimized, C-shaped 8-tweeter array with a 10” woofer to deliver classleading clarity and coverage down to 37 Hz, with wide dispersion and a maximum output of 123 dB.
