Libratone Live review
17 July 2012
Excerpt: Minimalist design, easy to set up, untethered and hi-fi sound quality. These are the points that Libratone puts forward with their latest pr
Pros: Easy to use and setup, Simple yet beautiful design, Solid build quality, Clear and robust sound even when volume is pushed to the max. No distortion, Uses Apple Airplay technology and controlled solely via an iOS app, perfect for Apple centric users
Cons: Too Apple centric which leaves Windows user in a bit of a disadvantage
Excerpt: Before discussing the specifics of each unit, we need to underscore a point that we’ve previously discussed in reviews of other AirPlay speakers: one year after its introduction, AirPlay remains a somewhat confounding and disappointing solution for streaming audio to third-party speakers.
Conclusion: At $799.95 the Libratone Live is one of the most expensive speakers in its class, and despite its beautiful design and powerful audio, this will disenchant many potential buyers. However, with its quality full room sound, AirPlay connectivity and dynamic audio range, this speaker is definitely worth a look, and listen.
Excerpt: If you’re looking for a simple wireless speaker that can play music from your Apple iPhone, iPod or iPad, you’re spoilt for choice. Ever since the B&W Zeppelin Air came through our offices in early 2011, most of the hi-fi speakers we’ve tested have had AirPlay capability. See all Audio reviews .

Summary: Libratone's Lounge speaker system is designed to hide away on your sideboard or take pride of place under your plasma TV - wherever it sits, it'll look great and be incredibly easy to use (if you've got an iDevice). The sound that the Libratone Lounge produces is crisp and detailed, although it's slightly lacking in the bass power we expected from a large cabinet.
Pros: Clear, clean sound at all volumes, Simple, versatile (for iOS users), Sturdy design and build
Cons: Sound lacks some bass and expansiveness, No physical volume control
This $899 hi-fi speaker is wrapped in wool, hiding some excellent sound quality
