Hello, I'm [unk] here at CES in fabulous Las Vegas, taking a look at the House of Marley One Foundation home audio system. So, as you can see, this is an absolutely massive speaker system for your home. It was here last year in its concept stages. But this, I'm told, is the finished article. It comes in two finishes, that's walnuts and birch. You're looking at the walnut one right here. The birch is gonna be slightly lighter. This is a 220 watts speaker system with 5-1/4 inch woofers for a really meaty, bassy noise. This one button on the top cycles 3 modes and it has digital and auxiliary inputs plus USB on the side. It could also do stereo RCA in and out which is pretty handy. More excitingly, this speaker has AirPlay which is Apple's wireless audio technology. That means you'll be able to hook up your iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch and play music over WiFi as you wonder aimlessly around the house. It could hurt your bank balance, however. This speaker's gonna cost 700 dollars when it comes out in the third quarter of 2013. If you're not a big fan of AirPlay, I'm told that a Bluetooth version will be coming out a few months after that. As for sound quality, first impressions are that this speaker is very loud and delivers a lot of punch when it comes to bass. It's pretty crowded and noisy here, though. So, wait for the full review where we're really be putting sound quality through its basses. Beats by Dr. Dre may have started the musician-branded audio craze, but House of Marley looks to be trying to replicate that success. They've got some interesting stuff coming out in 2013; so, we'll see how it goes. I'm [unk] [unk] and this is the House of Marley One Foundation.

Join Jason Jenkins, Bridget Carey and Luke Westaway as they discuss the best tech live on the CNET stage at CES 2012.
Luke Westaway gets to grips with Vertu's ludicrous titanium smart phone, which plays host to a sapphire crystal screen, rubies, leather, and Google's green robot.
The future is made of plastic and is being gradually spat out of a 3D printer. CNET's Luke Westaway took to the floor of London's 3D printer show to examine trinkets, musical instruments, a house, and even replica cat skeletons scanned from mummified remains
Luke Westaway checks out Lenovo's new wireless monitor disguised as a tablet.
The Crave crew talks live from the CNET Stage at CES 2011, dishing on some Lady Gaga glasses that carry on the Polaroid legacy, an itty-bitty back massaging SUV robot, and a super-stylish-yet-down-to-earth House of Marley iPod speaker.
Due to hit stores later in 2011, Philips' Fidelio line of AirPlay and iPhone/iPod-dock speakers offers some of the most eye-catching designs in recent memory.
While it's a bit overpriced, the striking Philips Fidelio SoundRing is one of the better compact AirPlay speakers we've tested.
It's a great-looking wireless speaker that supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Internet radio, but the Minx Air 100's sound quality is underwhelming, especially for its price.
CNET's Luke Westaway takes a look at Panasonic's flagship TV, the ZT60, a fully loaded TV that delivers. Just make sure you have the space, because it's not small.
