At 3.5 metres tall, could this crazy structure (aka the AeroDream One) be the ultimate speaker dock?
French king of synths Jean Michel Jarre and Jarre Technologies set out to create stylish
hi-fi products for our listening pleasure. The French avant garde musician is used to
going large. He’s played his laser harp for world record crowds of well over two million
in Paris and Moscow, and his album, Oxygène, has sold over 12 million copies.
Built to order, the resulting AeroDream One is one one hell of an indulgence for music-loving iPhone/iPad/iPod owners. Climb the ladder included, plug your device into the dock at the top, access iTunes, then bliss out to sound delivered
via a huge subwoofer, two 1,600W mid-range speakers and two 1,400W
Jarre Technologies has not only designed the AeroDream One’s behemoth exterior, but has specially engineered its signal processor too. The precision electronics inside reproduce base and treble for the
purest sound possible. The scientific-looking exterior is made of glass and metal.
Jarre really does see AeroDream One as a totem, and with it is sending a message to the music industry. He wants the system
to “recreate emotion and bring back impeccable sound quality” – things he feels are lost while listening on most of today’s
music tech systems.
The AeroDream One also has MP3, mini-stereo and XLR inputs in case you don’t have an iOS device. The total output
is over 10,000W, and its range is 25Hz to 25KHz. You can order it in black, white or chrome, if you’re brave enough to ask
for the price.
