New York City-based Sooloos is shipping what amounts to the dream audio system: an all-in-one, fully interactive, multi-room audio environment that supports only the highest possible audio standards. This sort of quality is not cheap -- it costs about the same as a good used car -- but the Sooloos puts all of your music -- thousands upon thousands of CDs if you have them -- into a touch-driven interface based on album art and notes. Just browse through your stuff with your fingertips -- Bruce, Miles, Jimi -- touch it, and get it. Very slick.
