Libratone Live review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Let’s get the announcement out of the way first. Libratone just let loose a pair of high-end wireless AirPlay speakers for the home: the $699 / €699 / £599 Libratone Live tower or the $1,299 / €1,199 / £1,099 Libratone Lounge soundbar. That’s a lot of coin for the average consumer. Question is, will they be worth the price when they ship in September?
  • 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

Libratone Live AirPlay Speaker

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Libratone is a small Danish audio company with three products: the mini Zipp, the midi Live and the maxi Lounge. Each speaker is exceedingly simple — no volume controls or superfluous buttons, minimalist designs with exacting construction. They’re marketed at buyers who love their iPhones, iPads and iPods, and want to share their music. See all Audio reviews .

Libratone Live AirPlay speaker

27 January 2013
  • 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 .
