There’s a reason that Edifier’s newest release, the Luna5 Encore iF500, won this year’s CES Innovation & Design Honoree Award. Actually, we take that back. There are several reasons. One is that the all-in-one digital FM radio and iPod/iPhone/MP3 docking sound system sports an outstanding design. With clean lines and a stylish look, it features an elliptical-shaped speaker enclosure perched on a base that was designed to take up the smallest amount of space possible without sacrificing sound. And this feat is another reason the Luna deserves all the accolades it’s receiving: For such a small package, it packs a more than powerful sound punch, courtesy of its 5.75-inch bass driver, plus two 2.75-inch midrange drivers and two 2.5-inch tweeters, both arranged for stereo sound and powered by accompanying Class-D digital amps. But what about the low-frequency reproduction, you might be wondering — often one of the main sound challenges in small speaker systems? Ahh, have no fear: The folks at Edifier resolved this issue by combining lowfrequency porting and midrange-tuned cavities with unique vibration and resonance-control technologies. If you don’t quite understand what that means, don’t worry — all you need to know is that the audio is fantastic. As are the glowy red touch-control buttons on the base. Hey, what can we say? We dig aesthetically pleasing designs. $299,
