Nocs NS2 Air Monitors

(5 years ago)
There is no denying that the Nocs NS2 Air Monitors are stunning. Beautiful, elegant computer/small room active speakers with built in AirPlay tech, making it ridiculously easy to throw your music around the house… and with AirPlay’s multi-speaker set up being so easy, it’s been fun hooking up the speakers in every room - from laptop to kitchen to living room to bedroom to be in sync, so music follows us around the house and NOTlabs! But back to aesthetics, these are designed in Stockholm (assembled in China) and have hand-built soft touch rubber coated cabinets (feels SO good!), Kevlar reinforced woofers and silk dome tweeters. I’m smitten by the way the red pops - they also come in black, white, grey, orange, and yellow. The set up is relatively easy (but also easy to forget, lest you need to reset and do it again - but you can ping the website for that too) - you basically plug it in, press setup on the back, and connect to its personal wifi network, hitting the usual 192.168.1.1 to set it up to attach to your network. You can also use AirPlay Direct Mode, which allows you to play to the temp wifi network it will create, perfect for wifi-less scenarios (simply double click the setup button till it turns amber.) Ready to take a peek at the details and setup? See the full unboxing on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Nocs NS2 Air Monitors"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)

Before & After: Dottie's Toffee

(5 years ago)
"Dottie's Toffee is a celebration of all things familiar and sweet. Dot began making her own toffee in 1976 and her love of her craft was contagious. Her grandson Nick carries on the toffee-making tradition these days and he sells to retailers nationwide. We created a brand as sweet, complex and versatile as the toffee itself - both nostalgic and contemporary. Bright, transitional colors contrasted by black, white and gray along with bold, simple text define the brand across packaging, collateral and the website."
