VA-VA-BOOM

Esquire (Malaysia) - - MACHINERY -

Wire­less multi-room speakers tend to come in two styles: white or black. If the tech inside has moved on since the Sev­en­ties’ hi-fi boom—blue­tooth, Air­play and whole-home stream­ing giv­ing us con­cert-hall sound at the touch of an app—some­times it’s easy to feel that the de­sign has lagged be­hind. Why do speakers have to be boxy? Sure, for some, the dis­creet charms of some­thing that can tuck away on a study book­shelf or a kitchen counter top has its ad­van­tages. For oth­ers, wire­less hi-fi can still make a state­ment. Hence a new breed of lux­ury speakers that look as dis­tinc­tive as they sound. Now you just need the de­signer flat in which to play them.
