These Ceramic Speakers certainly look cool, and if the building material is anything to go by, they probably sound cool too. The things are made of iron, porcelain, ceramic, cork and birch, not a drop of nasty plastic in the room. Comes complete with a diddy amp and some instant street cred for your MP3 player or laptop. $495.00.
With porcelain and cork enclosures, custom-made drivers and a Tripath amplifier, this is an audiophile’s dream. The high-resolution sound has such nuance and depth that you’ll be able to hear the difference between CD and MP3 quality, and just wait until you dust off the old vinyl! The Ceramic Speakers connect directly to iPods and other digital music players to form an elegant, minimal music system.
