Libratone Live and Lounge wireless loudspeakers


Those are the Libratone loudspeakers for your home that don't look like a regular speakers. There a different collection from speakers as here we have Libratone Live and Lounge. The speakers are covered in wool that can be in five different colors. The speakers are based on patent-pending audio technology called FullRoom sound. The technology is explained by the creators of the speakers:
Regular speakers have closed cabinets. They push the sound waves in one direction - forward. This means that you need two speakers, preferably placed in an angle pointing at the same place in the middle of the room to create a so-called 'sweet spot' - a spot where the sound is optimal. And this in turn means that you have to succumb to this symmetrical dictatorship of stereo, when you furnish your house.
Libratone Live and Lounge, on the other hand, play like acoustic instruments, dispersing sound waves in multiple directions, reflecting them off the walls. This eliminates the sweet spot and gives you a 360° sound experience. To get a bit more technical, inside the cabinets there are five units each driven by dedicated audiophile amplifiers and each dedicated to spreading sound in a specific direction. This setup means that the system both spreads out the sound and encapsulates you in it.

As we already mention the cover can be chosen from the customer from five different colors. There are enough colors for every one if you want your speakers to flow with your interior you can choose from gray beige or black. But if you are from the people that want to attract peoples there are two colors for you red and green. The cover is made from hi-quality Italian wool. It can be fine Italian wool, or cashmere wool. The design of the speakers is very modernistic and slick perfect for any room.

 The Libratone loudspeakers can be used wireless but for those that don't have the required equipment you can always connect them with the standard 3.5 inch mini jack. As the speakers have unique design and construction they are made to be used only one in room. You save space but don't lose any of the quality. Up to 6 speakers can be connected together and you can cover your whole apartment. The price of Libratone Live is around 800 euro.
