Hot new gear

as it is a speaker
What is it? Electronic music semi-deity Jean-Michel Jarre’s company, Jarre Technologies, is making some pretty, uh, outré speakers, including metallic skulls and a huge sunglasses-wearing dog. The AeroFrame here is relatively demure compared to those, but it is still a striking design. Four elements sit suspended in that cube frame: two speakers, a subwoofer and the control unit. It comes in several finishes, including some wood options. When’s it due? Imminently. Why are we excited? We’ve seen this in the metal/wood, and it’s a pretty stunning piece of art as much as a speaker. But Jarre knows the latter is equally (if not more) important, and happily it sounds superb, too.
