So much happened at CES 2015 that we’re only now getting the chance to catch up with it all. One of the big announcements for Lenovo at CES was the extending of its YOGA family, particularly the new Lenovo YOGA 3 convertibles which introduced an 11-inch and 14-inch version. It goes without saying that both these devices make use of the usual YOGA formula, the two-hinge design which allows the device to be locked in four different positions – Laptop, Stand, Tent and Tablet – depending on your preference or use-case. But it’s not all just convenience and functionality – the YOGA 3’s have the power to back it up with an Intel Core i7 in the 14-inch YOGA 3, 1080p displays and Windows 8.1.

Of course, the most striking thing about these speakers are their exterior, which is die cast from solid zinc giving it a great look but also great durability, but underneath packs some serious power as well with two 2.5-inch drivers and rear-ported passive radiators. If you’ve never heard of the name Samson before, they are one of the biggest names in professional audio solutions, particularly microphones, so it’s no surprise that their speakers are designed to look like microphones of the past.
