Speakers have come a long way since those black boxes hiding in the corner of a room. Indeed, Scandyna’s futuristic Micropod SE Active and The Drop speakers are as much style statements as pieces of good quality audio kit.
The smaller Micropod SE Active is designed for MP3 players or computers. It features a high grade amplifier which supplies its kevlar bass/midrange unit and soft dome tweeter with what’s described as a precise and crisp sound. Available in 6 vibrant colours, they retail for £199.
On a bigger scale, the Drop speakers, which can be floor standing (on sound-isolating spikes) or mounted with a patented wall cable, use the best of Scandyna’s audio technology – packed into one of the quirkiest cabinets on the market. And if you’ve got one eye on home design, these again are available in six colour schemes.
A pair of the Drop speakers retails for £549.
