With all the recent advancements in wireless technology, a hi-fi home audio system has become a necessity. The Libratone Live Speaker ($699.95) sets the bar for single-speaker audio solutions. The Scandinavian design makes it look more like furniture than audio equipment, and the sound quality is top-notch. The speaker comes equipped with Libratone’s FullRoom acoustic technology, AirPlay wireless audio streaming, and digital amplification to pump up the tunes when the party gets going.
When your snooze button is a little too easy to find in the morning, consider upgrading your alarm clock setup. The Furni Alba Felt ($148) is a great choice if you want to infuse your bedroom with some contemporary style. The LED displays the time and the built-in speaker with amplifier will crank out your tunes (or alarm) while docking and charging your iPhone at the same time.
So the stock speakers in your iPhone aren’t loud enough when you are showing off your musical taste, and you don’t want to be the dork who has to plug in speakers at the party? Get yourself the Koostik Mini Koo Speaker ($70). Made from solid wood, this iPhone dock pumps up the volume from your iPhone speakers using a “trumpet horn” wooden opening. You can connect your charger to it and play your favorite tunes to wake you up with the morning. One of the coolest natural speakers we have ever seen, or heard. (Walnut pictured above).
