Conclusion: The Liberatone Loop’s design makes it a pleasant aesthetic addition to the modern home, and will likely attract attention and discussion from visitors. Serving a background role, it will provide sufficient sound at a dinner party or social event.
Summary: The Libratone Loop is a great little AirPlay speaker. Sound quality is very good and the ease of setup and use is top notch. However, with an MSRP of $499.99, the Loop faces a great deal of competition.
Excerpt: Danish audio firm Libratone adds to its collection of high-end speakers with the Loop, a round and relatively slim unit that produces some of the best treble fidelity we've heard from a product its size.
Conclusion: Our experience with the Libratone Loop has been a rollercoaster ride from frustration through to full-on aural pleasure and then back to the start again. But that's because we’ve had AirPlay issues - something you might not experience.
Pros: Plenty of bass, sounds really good, quirky design and colour options give it a distinctive edge
Cons: No Bluetooth, setup and AirPlay playback hit and miss, expensive, driver rattling, top-end can be harsh
