For almost as long as I can remember, “home entertainment centers” have only gotten bigger as we’ve marched down the years, at least the audio portions of them. Then, sometime around 1980 so with the advent of the DVD (and a push from the WalkMan), stuff started shrinking. Now, of course, you can pack movies, TV shows, and your whole library of songs into a gadget the size of a pack of cigarettes. (Not that anyone smokes any more. But I digress.) And the Olive One is an attempt to put your old home entertainment system, music-wise, into one place:
