Review: Outdoor Weatherproof SunbriteTV 46″ Signature Series TV
I’m working on the new Holiday Gift Guides and had a 46″ SunbriteTV LCD TV from their Signature Series line in for review. Thought I’d do a quick review for the readers of Mavromatic. It’s a pretty neat TV especially that you can permanently keep it installed outdoors as it’s completely weatherproof. Watch the video above and please subscribe to our youtube channel.

AudioEngine A2 Compact Self-Powered Speakers That Sound Great!
I’m always on the look out for a great sounding compact speaker primarily because that is probably the most common question I’m asked. It’s also very hard to find a compact speaker that sounds as full as a big speaker — but great news, I think I’ve found a contender!…

Comparisons: Myro:Air vs. Arcam airDAC Airplay UPnP DAC / Streamer
As of this post, there are only two Apple Certified AirPlay Streamers featuring high-quality DAC’s. The Arcam airDAC and Myro:Air. Both streamer/DAC combos are very capable but offer different features and components. As far as streaming capabilities both offer AirPlay streaming and are compatible with devices (e.g. Windows & Android) that can stream content to UPnP DMR’s (Myro:Air has been tested with the following media types).

Myro:Air AirPlay Streamer Now Available For Pre-Order!
I’m proud to announce that after two and a half years and thousands of man hours Myro:Air has passed Apple Certification for AirPlay and Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad. Myro:Air is designed, engineered and made in the U.S.A with domestic and foreign parts. The boards are assembled in Washington State — one of the main goals in creating Myro:Air was to keep as much of the product made in the U.S.A. as possible.
From a technical perspective, Myro:Air is the first AirPlay streamer of it’s kind (most AirPlay devices are wireless speaker systems or receivers). Features like RS-232 for home automation/control systems like Crestron and AMX brings transport control (play, pause, next track, previous track) and metadata integration to custom installers. As well as smartsource support for Russound RNET based controllers. For the audio output side, Myro:Air provides analog output via the venerable Wolfson WM8741 DAC. It can also output digital audio in parallel via a Wolfson WM8804.
I’m especially excited to finally be able to share Myro:Air with the rest of the world!
