TOTEMIC SOUND

At 3.5 me­tres tall, could this crazy struc­ture (aka the AeroDream One) be the ul­ti­mate speaker dock?

WHO?

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.

WHAT?

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

high-fre­quency speak­ers.

HOW?

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.

WHY?

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.

ANY­THING ELSE?

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.
