Who said that compact audio components have to sound lousy?  If you frequently listen to music on a laptop, smartphone or in hotel rooms while traveling, Soundmatters has just what you need.  The foxL DUET combines the company’s foxL aptX portable, pocket-friendly speaker/speakerphone and the palm-sized foxLO powered subwoofer.   This duo is said to stretch the laws of physics and provide audio that’s much closer to what you’d expect from a full range desktop audio system, with bass that reaches down to 38 Hz.  If your travel bag doesn’t have enough space for both, just grab the foxL portable speaker.  But if you want the full experience, ditch the razor and the shaving cream from the suitcase and pack the subwoofer along for the trip.  $349. www.soundmatters.com
