Hitting the road with your own music speaker,

The Origin is a travel size Bluetooth speaker system that lets you bump up the fidelity of music from your phone or tablet. The mini-dock itself docks with a larger dock, to turn into a whopping 36-watt desktop speaker system.
The smaller unit, which looks like a clone of the larger dock, magnetically connects to a recess in the back of the larger unit.
The smaller Origin, roughly 6 by 2 by 3 inches, weighs 10 ounces and packs in two 1.5-inch speakers and a 2-inch speaker as well, for lower tones. It gets an estimated 15 hours of play from a full charge.
The big Origin dock is roughly 14 by 6 by 8 inches and weighs seven pounds. It contains a 4-inch subwoofer, two 2.5-inch and two 1.5-inch speakers capable of pumping out some significant volume. There was no problem hearing this one in the convention hall of the Consumer Electronics Show – dorm room neighbours beware.
