Dual Review: Libratone's Lounge and Zipp speakers cover both ends of the spectrum
18 May 2014
Excerpt: Libratone has made a name for itself by baking high-tech components, innovative design and consistent sound quality into its systems, features usually seen only in much more expensive systems.
Conclusion: So does the Lounge deserve a place in your life and living room? As an upgrade from your TV’s rather crappy speakers, the Lounge is a perfect companion that requires just one little cable to connect to most audio devices.
Conclusion: If you have room in your budget and home for this behemoth, the Libratone Lounge is unlikely to disappoint, unless you're really only craving booming bass.
Pros: Extremely powerful speaker with wide stereo separation for a single unit. Easy set-up, streams wireless audio via AirPlay, DLNA, as well as via direct from device, no wireless router needed. Pleasing visual design.
Cons: Massive and expensive. Digital signal processing limits bass at high volumes, preventing distortion but altering the sound signature on deep bass tracks. No remote control.
Conclusion: The Libratone Lounge both looks and sounds lovely, but it's not as versatile as it could have been. As a TV soundbar it won't represent 5.1 surround sound or provide powerful rumble for Hollywood explosions.

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
