Speak Easy

Pair­ing a fetch­ing de­sign with qual­ity crafts­man­ship and ro­bust com­po­nents, the Caruso is not your run of the mill loud­speaker.

The trend within the au­dio in­dus­try of re­duc­ing the size of loud­speak­ers to the barest of min­i­mums has re­sulted in poor, un­in­volv­ing sound which, when com­bined with solid state am­pli­fiers and dig­i­tal mu­sic, isn’t all it’s hyped up to be. If you want mu­sic to sound like mu­sic, the size of the speak­ers mat­ters and horns, be­lieve it or not, do ac­tu­ally help. This new Caruso Blue­tooth speaker sys­tem, de­signed by Paolo Cap­pello for Ital­ian out­fit Mini­forms, ac­tu­ally com­bines a de­cent sized speaker, a horn and a cab­i­net – and not just for the speaker on the left, but also for a two-level stor­age com­part­ment on the right. Apart from its good looks, the Caruso is also a ca­pa­ble au­dio sys­tem with a sin­gle-chan­nel pneu­matic speaker, a 160mm mid­woofer, a 13mm tweeter, and two 50-watt Class D amps, con­nected to a ceramic horn that helps en­hance the sound from the driver el­e­ments. Both the wooden cab­i­net and ceramic horn com­po­nent can be cus­tomised in a myr­iad of colour op­tions in­clud­ing lac­quer or 300year old Ital­ian oak on the base and a sparkling 24-karat gold-plate on the horn. While the sys­tem may be pricey, its mul­ti­func­tion­al­ity makes it worth the splurge in our book.
