Libratone Lounge and Live brings AirPlay to your living room
Wireless connectivity is all around us, and with this development, one is able to live without the clutter of nasty cables (who seemingly have a life of their own, I might add). Well, Libratone engages the wireless generation with a couple of speaker systems – the Libratone Live and Libratone Lounge that will support the AirPlay standard for the ultimate sound experience right smack in the middle of your living room. With Apple’s AirPlay support, you can now stream songs from your iTunes music libraries on Mac or PC, in addition to the tracks stashed away on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, over a Wi-Fi network.
First of all, let us take a look at the Libratone Lounge system that was specially designed to fill up every corner of your room with perfect audio – you will be able to choose from Slate Grey, Blueberry Black and Vanilla Beige as standard where that will set you back by a rather handsome $1,299, and if you desire to add a dash of class by having it come in red and green cashmere, then the price goes up by another $100.
As for the Libratone Live, this is a far smaller device that brings up a notch of versatility as to where you want to place it. Knowing Libratone, this is not going to be dirt cheap either, where the standard model which comes in grey, black and beige shades will retail for $699 a pop, while those who want something more premium can always pick up the red and green cashmere model at a cost of $799. Of course, regardless of either model you purchase, you will still need to download the free Libratone App that will pave the way for you to perform a complete customization of the FullRoom feature, letting you adjust individual nuances of the sound to fit most rooms without any hassle. Any takers? So far either purchase would seem like an indulgence at this moment, what with the worldwide economic crunch and all.
Just make sure that you have one of the more recent models of the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in order to have them play nice with both Libratone offerings.
