You know that place in your living room where the sound from the television or the music from your stereo is just right? Where, if you’re anything like me, you find yourself leaning toward it, ever so slightly, during the good parts of a movie or standing in it when you’re playing good music. That’s called the sweet spot. No really, that’s a technical term. The sweet spot is the place where the sound waves from whatever your audio setup includes come together like they’re supposed to. It’s the spot where your 24-speaker 22.2 surround sound system does its job best, delivering the highs and lows in perfect balance.

Next week Apple’s new iPhone is expected to be announced with a new dock connector. It is still a secret exactly what kind of a dock it will be. Some rumors are that the old 30-pin dock will just get an adapter although it is not known if it will work only on the newest iPhones or also with the older ones. The current dock design has been present from the very beginning and after 9 years could really use a replacement. Many companies are already planning to overcome this (if there is actually a change) with Bluetooth enabled parts that will provide music or video output. So far most of the rumors are around auris by Touchkraft LLC and CoolStream. While auris is a kickstarter project that is yet to be funded, you can buy CoolStream for $39.99 from Amazon.
