This week’s roundup features two different accessories to help you get the best sound from your Apple TV. Read on!


House of Marley

The $70 Chant Mini is a Bluetooth-enabled portable speaker, featuring a mic so you can use the device as a speakerphone. It offers up to six hours of audio playback before charging is required. Plus, it’s easy to carry around, weighing in at less than a pound.



The $99 In•Habit amplifier for Apple TV is built to compliment your second- or third-generation Apple TV; the device provides an optical input, two 3.5mm stereo jacks, and Bluetooth connectivity for streaming audio from your iPhone or iPad.



The $90 Yeelight is a bedside lamp with a range of 16 million colors in an array of brightness settings—and you can operate it remotely, by Bluetooth, from your iPhone.



The $59.95 Digital Audio Adapter for Apple TV  streams high-def content from your Apple TV to an HDTV, a 4K monitor, or a projector—all with surround sound support, making it possible to listen to music, podcasts, TV shows, and radio apps with your existing home theater sound system or sound bar. You can also use it to stream iPad content directly to an HDMI projector.

The $100 Pad & Pencil for iPad Pro is a sleeve made of high-grade oil-tanned leather, and it has lots of fans, nearly doubling its production goal during a Kickstarter campaign last year. It comes in four different colors.



The $130 Soundjump wireless speaker features “dual front-facing 45mm full range drivers and two front & back passive radiators for deep, balanced bass.”



The $30 Satechi SX10 is an aluminum-bodied 10,000-mAh backup battery with three charging ports—two good for your iPhone, one best used with your iPad. It includes an LED flashlight, as well as a display showing how much power is left before you leave the house.



The $129 Solartab is solar-powered backup for your iOS devices—even the iPad. It can soak up energy during the day, holding up to 13,000 mAh of power in reserve, for use when you need it most.
