This not-quite-spherical speaker uses a one-inch tweeter and a four-inch woofer, and offers versatility as well as good looks. You can connect a phone to it with Bluetooth or set it up as a wi-fi speaker. If you commit to Geneva and buy the base unit, which also plays CDs, you can pair two small speakers for a stereo sound, or fill the house with a family of small to large AeroSpheres. Logic insists its sound will be dispersed in 360 degrees but placing it on a solid surface ensures it travels upwards.
