The New York Audio Show returned after a bit of a break, and it was nice to get back to a local event I had attended for the first time in 2017. It was NYAS that inspired me to fly to Colorado for one of the last Rocky Mountain Audio Fests. RMAF was huge with many rooms, and even with a two-day stay, I was unable to see everything. The recent New York show at Manhattan’s Martinique Hotel on Friday September 9th was a very different affair: 15 systems could be evaluated and revisited in a single day.

One of the first audio shows I attended after what is hopefully the end of the pandemic was T.H.E. Show 2022 held at the Hilton Long Beach Hotel in California in June. This year the show returned with even more energy than in 2021. Last year’s show was partly a trial run after the 2020 lockdown and with the 2021 show’s success this year’s was more assured.

To sleep, perchance to dream – or to meditate, with Morphée!
Sleep is big business these days. It’s one of the basic needs we all have in common, yet something we never seem to get enough of. One of the least invasive and time-tested methods for preparing one’s mind for sleep is meditation. 
Morphée is an innovative device that brings meditation right into your bedroom, or anywhere you’re wishing to fall asleep. Especially since it’s non-digital!

We’ve all had moments on long road trips when we needed to pull off the turnpike for a bit and take a few minutes to relax with a video, make an extended phone call, or even check in with co-workers via Zoom. Of course we do have a traditional phone mount in the car, but it’s centrally placed on the dash and not conducive to comfortable hands-free usage during stops. Discovering the Pillow Talk Mobile Pillow from Spice of Life USA was sort of a game changer. It is comfortable, adjustable, and so practical.

If you feel like there is “something in the air” this time of year, it might not be your imagination! People with sensitive lungs and allergies have long had a secret weapon to help them breathe easier at home or in the office: air purifiers. Early models were simple and were basically fans with a filter. For the most part, most of them weren't very "smart." Fortunately, technology has advanced the common air purifier to new levels of comfort, ease of use, and filtering ability. The new ALEN BreatheSmart 45i & 75i Air Purifiers bring the technological advances that elevate their new models to a level not seen before. Read on for our full review.
