Zimku iPod speakers by Parrot & Phillipe Starck – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and apparently anti-gravity

Share

phillipe-starck-speakers.jpgEven if I didn’t know what these things were, I’d want them in my home. For the record, you’re looking at a set of speakers with an iPod dock on top. That’s the cruel description.

To give these $1,500 beauties their dos, their designed by genius French nutball, Phillipe Starck and put together by makers of good yet dull in-car speaker phones Parrot. Well, you wouldn’t want it the other way round, would you?

The music from the speaker with the dock leaps via the magic of Bluetooth over to the other and, hey presto, you’ve got stereo sound. This is the point at which audiophiles vomit a kidney onto their CD transports and follow it up with their lungs when I say that these “Zimku’s” also receive streamed music from you PC over Wi-Fi.

The only mystery remains over whether these things have a hidden central stand, a perspex base or actually float on a cushion of sound waves. Please, please let it be the last one.

Pumping out 100W of audio power in living rooms from Spring 2009.

Update: We’ve just found out that these speakers will be available in the UK this spring, priced at a cool £1200 for the pair.

  • These look absolutely incredible, and 100 watts of power will be more than enough for me. Now to start saving up for when I’m in the market for some serious speakers.
