‘ MA770’ BY MASTER & DY­NAMIC

If you like raw, in­dus­trial de­sign, you’ll love this mono­lithic speaker that re­sem­bles a Bru­tal­ist sculp­ture. Made from hand-fin­ished con­crete, it’s the work of vi­sion­ary Bri­tish ar­chi­tect Sir David Adjaye. Part speaker, part work of art, it boasts top sound qual­ity and a re­mov­able grille that ex­poses hand­crafted com­po­nents. £1,600 (master dy­namic. co.uk).

‘ T7 GOLD EDI­TION’ BY BOWERS & WILKINS

This sleek, por­ta­ble Blue­tooth speaker fea­tures a stylish hon­ey­comb struc­ture – it not only looks great, but can­cels out vi­bra­tions that could neg­a­tively af­fect the sound qual­ity. De­spite be­ing no big­ger than a hard­back book, the speaker de­liv­ers 18 hours of play­back per charge – mak­ing it per­fect for al­fresco par­ties. £300 ( bowers-wilkins.co.uk).

‘ SE­RIES 5’ BY LINN

Engi­neered in Scot­land, this speaker is guar­an­teed to de­liver high fi­delity au­ral plea­sure – and thanks to a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Glas­gow-based textile de­sign­ers Ti­morous Beast­ies, it also packs a (slightly sur­real) vis­ual punch. Choose from ten hand-printed ‘Fabrik’ cov­ers or opt for a plain colour. They can be switched as and when you up­date your in­te­rior. From £9,600 (linn.co.uk).
