Part of Kirei’s EchoPanel Collection, EchoLine absorbs sound in chic style. Eco-friendly, felt-like acoustic panels are crafted in a linear or grid pattern and adhere to flat and curved surfaces via adhesive or mechanical fasteners. Available in a wide range of colors.

Bang & Olufsen now showcases artwork by filmmaker David Lynch on its limited-edition speaker collection, which includes the streaming system Beoplay A9 and wireless, wall-mounted and portable speakers. Available online and at select Bang & Olufsen stores beginning November 8.

The Pulse Soundbar from Bluesound—maker of wireless high-resolution, multi-room operating systems—combines Dolby surround sound; audiophile-grade, hi-res audio capabilities; and access to streaming services. Now available in a white or black finish.

The Josh Micro device now integrates with Crestron’s smart-home Pyng operating system to deliver voice control of lighting, shades, thermostats and A/V devices. Josh Micro is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and operable via smartphone app.;
