Known primarily for affordable audio products, Audiovox had an extensive presence at CES this year, with three offerings that stood out from the rest. Soundflow is a wireless speaker dock; Stream is a Wi-Fi music-streaming system that acts as a home entertainment system that is controlled from iPad, iPhone or computer; and Car Connection allows users to maintain, manage and even locate a vehicle remotely. The company also introduced inexpensive 808 Studio Headphones, covered in the linked First Look.

    Car Connection ($170) enables users to monitor daily driving methods, check vehicle health, locate a vehicle in a parking lot and restrict phone usage within the vehicle. There's a $10 monthly service fee.

    Car Connection plugs into the car's OBDII port and operates on the Sprint network. A user can then pull up vehicle information on an iPhone, including walking directions to the car from the phone's current location.

    Several iterations of Soundflow were on display at CES. It's a wireless, no-pairing audio system that uses a soundmat to play music from an iPhone or iPod through the dock's speaker. It can operate through the phone's case, eliminating the need to take off the case to dock the device.

    Audiovox expects to ship Soundflow within the year.

    Stream is expected to be released this March. It uses a Wi-Fi connection to create a multi-speaker home entertainment system. One speaker will cost $200, with discounts for two ($380) and three ($480).

    Stream operates similarly to Apple's AirPlay, although Audiovox said the Stream name was chosen to reduce customer confusion.
