We’ve seen this in the metal/wood and it’s a stun­ning piece of art just as much

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.
