I've followed XKitz for a while, as their products interest me... though I haven't had a need for any of it:
https://www.xkitz.com

They've been posting on Instagram about an upcoming "all in one" module for portable bluetooth speakers, with details finally released:
https://www.krowdster.co/l/e447

I'll copy/paste the blurb below.

As I've posted in another thread, I'm playing with the Sure JAB2 and expect (& hope) the XKitz to be more of a premium option.
JAB2 Discussion here: http://forum.speakerplans.com/sure-jab-2-all-in-one-amp-bluetooth-bms_topic96581.html

Anyone else seen this, and what do you think?

PORTABLE SPEAKER INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER AND CONTROLLER

Combines all the functions of a portable Bluetooth speaker into one compact and tightly integrated module
Bluetooth v4.2 Audio Front End
Active Crossovers and DSP Audio Processor
2.1 Class-D amplifiers with 250W RMS combined power
250W Lithium-Ion power supply for fully wireless portable operation
Power saving features to extend battery life
All built on a compact plate module

Designed and built for the highest possible audio quality
Bluetooth streaming AAC format - not the low quality SBC format used by most Bluetooth speakers that gives Bluetooth audio a bad reputation
Active Bi-Amped topology for the ultimate crystal clear audio - no need for expensive passive crossovers that only distort your sound and waste half of your battery power
High Definition 24 bit/96KHz DSP audio processing
Ultra low distortion Class-D amplifiers

Audio Front End
Bluetooth v4.2 with AAC streaming and up to 24bit/96KHz audio
Analog line-level input with 24bit/96KHz sampling

Active Crossovers and DSP Audio Processor
Linkwitz-Riley Active Crossover
User programmable audio parameters:
Crossover frequency and gain
Crossover roll-off: 24dB or 48dB
15 band EQ
Time delay correction
Baffle Step Compensation
Compressor/Limiter to prevent the amplifier from ever going into clipping
Optional audio enhancements like Spatializer and Dynamic Bass Boost

Class D Amplifiers
250W combined power
2.1 Configuration – One center sub-woofer and two tweeter channels
125W RMS to the woofer
62W RMS to the tweeters
TAS5611A Class-D Amplifier:
10Hz-80KHz Signal Bandwidth
0.03% THD+N
>100dB SNR
No fan needed

Lithium-Ion Power Supply
250W 2-Phase DC/DC converter - steps up the 14.8V Lithium-Ion battery voltage to 24V-30V needed by the amplifier
Integrated LiIon/LiPo charge controller
Dynamic Voltage Scaling – automatically turns up the voltage when you crank the volume and the amplifiers need the extra power, then turns it back down when not needed to save battery life
Multiple levels of electrical and thermal protection to prevent Lithium-Ion battery damage

DSP User Programmability - Similar to mini-DSP
For those intrepid souls who want to delve deeper into the DSP programming and configuration, we expose the programming interface to the DSP chip to allow you to use SigmaStudio from Analog Devices to customize the audio processing to support any specialized functions you need. SigmaStudio is a very simple drag and drop programming interface, no need for specialized DSP programming expertise. The DSP functions available are similar to those in the mini-DSP system.

They sent me the brochure, the JAB3 looks quite interesting - same amp options as the JAB1/2, but with the DSP module, and a connector to integrate with a JAB1/2. So JAB1/2 with JAB 3 gives you all the input and power options (MPPT, 18650 3S BMS/holder, bluetooth and analogue inputs), with 4 channels of DSP. They have programming interfaces to use Sigma Studio gui for the dsp configuration. Should be pretty sweet. $34.90 for the 2x50w version apparently!
