Summary: So, will I be swapping out my Sonos for these Libratone speakers? No, but I’m a home owner with multiple listeners, music collections, and streaming audio services to manage. While the Libratone Live speaker ($699 or $799 for the cashmere finish) does best the audio reproduction of my relatively diminutive $399 Sonos Play:5 all-in-one, it can’t compare to the quality of sound and features offered by two Play:5 speakers ($798) joined together in a stereo pair.
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction for the price, Wireless AirPlay convenience, Ribbon tweeters
Cons: Pricey: $100 extra for colored cashmere, Limited features compared to Zeppelin Air
Summary: Libratone offers attractive features in its Live AirPlay speaker system – style, sound quality, ease of use and a handle to carry it from room to room. Designed to blend into your home’s décor thanks to its minimalist design, the Libratone Live comes in your choice of a number of coloured cloth coverings. And being an Airplay speaker means you can forget the cables. The only cable required is for power.
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.

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

Excerpt: – Libratone er begynnelsen på slutten på høyttalerkabler på verdensbasis. Produsenten av høyttalersystemet Libratone Live slår på stortromma i teksten på emballasjen. Høyttalerkabler er bare så gammeldags, ifølge den danske høyttalerprodusenten Libratone A/S. Forutsetningen for at du får være med på Libratones antikabel-kampanje er at du er en lykkelig eier av en iPad, iPhone eller iPod touch av AirPlay-kompatibel årgang – eller rett og slett har en Mac eller Windows-pc...
Summary: Wil je een simpel werkend AirPlay speaker systeem met een opvallend design, dan is de Libratone Live zonder twijfel te overwegen. De Libratone Live weet een mooie wall-of-sound neer te zetten, voor een prijs van €699,- euro. Dat is een hoop geld voor een draadloze speaker, maar dan heb je wel een stijvol vormgegeven apparaat met redelijk wat vermogen onder de motorkap.
