[test] Libratone Live : une enceinte AirPlay au design danois
14 January 2015
Summary: Pour être franc, le Libratone Live avait tout pour plaire sur le plan esthétique et pratique (les enceintes AirPlay sont rares, celles qui ont un design soigné et une entrée auxiliaire encore plus), mais une fois allumé, il déçoit, la faute à des performances audio décevantes, surtout à ce prix...
Cons: - Acoustique médiocre, clairement pas à la hauteur du prix, - Wifi G seulement, - Pas d’effet stéréo (comme la quasi totalité de ce genre d’enceintes), - Un petit contrôle de volume sur l’enceinte pourrait être un plus, histoire de baisser le son vite fait en cas d’urgence, - Consommation électri...
Excerpt: One great aspect about attending CES for a week is that you get to hear a lot of audio products in action. The only real problem is that you don’t really get to listen to them, since there is so much noise and bustle all around.
TechnologyTell Review: Libratone Live Wireless Speaker
29 May 2014
Conclusion: The Libratone Live is the kind of speaker that can end (or even start) arguments of who is better. Smaller, less powerful speakers just can’t bring forth those subtle, musical details that truly characterize a track or artist.
Conclusion: The Libratone Live continues the company’s efforts to deliver an impressive audio experience in a stylish manner, sitting squarely in between the portable Zipp and cinema-style Lounge. It’s still a great speaker that on its own can impressive even the most cynical listener.
Excerpt: Minimalist design, easy to set up, untethered and hi-fi sound quality. These are the points that Libratone puts forward with their latest product, the Libratone Live. Does this $700 USD product live up to expectation or does it fizzle and categorize as a pretentious and overpriced audio system?
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: Just three years after the iPod ruled the audio industry, manufacturers are starting to look on it as a quaint “legacy device,” one they have to accommodate for customers who just aren’t with it.
Excerpt: 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.
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
This $899 hi-fi speaker is wrapped in wool, hiding some excellent sound quality

Summary: Libratone's Live AirPlay wireless speaker is an exceedingly simple, exceptionally good-looking product. It's well suited to Apple's idiot-proof wireless music streaming system, too, being controlled entirely remotely.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, Somewhat portable
Cons: No internal battery, Minor EQ adjustment, No external volume control
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...
