    Airpulse released a small bookshelf speaker, A100, after the highly praised A200, equipping new speaker units, smaller sized ribbon tweeters. Unlike A300, just an enlarged A200, A100 not only adopts high gloss piano enamel and rounded corners, but has a more compact size, which makes it a pair dedicate bookshelf stereo speaker.
    Recent years have seen Edifier's progress in audio speaker units. This year, Edifier providing the S301, no surprising, absorbing the latest technology on S2000 MKii, for it adopting the planar tweeter in S2000 MKii, and enlarges the mid-woofer from 3.5-inch to 4-inch.
    CM102 is a new JBL branded speaker system, but it does not seem like a JBL product, because it just has an ordinary appearance. It adopts wood cabinet rather than plastic, which are widely adopted by other JBL speakers. Sold at 999 - 1299 RMB (about $150-200).
    Edifier S880 is a 2.0 active speaker system that will be released in China soon. If just look at this name, you may consider that it has a similar market positioning with the S1000, and it is also sold at RMB 1198 (about 160 USD). However, S880 has a much smaller size than S1000/S2000 series, and it is more suitable to be placed on bookshelf.
    AirPulse A200 is the very first product that Edifier used the trademark and cooperated with Phil Jones. Since May 2011, Edifier released their new logo, and officially unveiled at the press conference. It adopts a brand new ribbon tweeter and a re-designed mid-woofer.
    Edifier released A200 active speaker with the high-end brand, AirPluse. The A200 horn loaded tweeter is a true ribbon tweeter. The 5.5" woofer in the A200 is an aluminum cone/large voice coil signature Phil Jones design.

    PPO has been the top seller in China mainland. R series contributes its majority sales volume, which means OPPOs destiny is close related to R series. The latest announced R9s is going to be tested today. However, although OPPO is a competitive manufacturer in audio devices, its smartphones had never been an excellent music player.
    Edifier S2000 MKII has finally been released after ten months of the publishing of S1000. The slogan The Return of the King is used for promotion, echoing the 1st gen S2000, as it has been 12 years since S2000 1st gen has been released. The price is about $100 higher than S1000, does it worth?
    We bought Rose Gold 64GB iPhone SE as soon as it was released. iPhone SE is equipped with A9 chip, 2GB RAM, 12‑megapixel iSight camera with 1.22m pixel size, iOS 9 operating system, and a built‑in rechargeable lithium‑ion battery slightly larger than iPhone 5s. This 4‑inch screen seems not popular as it was.
