Sony Bravia TVs are getting really big. I even got one 40″ for myself at a price which can only buy me a 800:1 contrast 32″ LCD TV a few years ago. Now Sony has Bravia sound systems as big as strawberry like this 5.1 HT-IS100 Bravia Theatre Micro System.
All the bulky power paraphernalia resides in the relatively huge subwoofer, which you can hide out of sight, leaving these four tiny surround speakers and their center channel brother to take up about as much space as a fly on the wall. If that’s still too obtrusive for you, make those rear surround speaks even less noticeable with an optional wireless kit. I have heard Sony’s previous model when I was buying my 40″ or is it the same thing, I can’t remember but they sound surprisingly good.

AMP Universal Speaker

October 6, 2007

 

AMP is a universal active speaker for Ipod or laptops. The AMP refers to the time before transistor radios. Back then, radios looked like giant pieces of furniture, since it took a lot of space to put all the technology needed.

The AMP is equipped with a mosfet amplifier and a 3-way speaker cone-set. The audio jack ensures the freedom to connect any portable music device whatsoever.
Since it’s so big, it can become a table too.

Paper Ceramic Loudspeakers

September 26, 2007


Thin paper ceramic loudspeakers made from discarded musical scores and clay to satisfy that need to propagate and share your music.

Singaporean Yong Jieyu’s ceramic paper speakers (actually, they’re less speaker than amplifier) are made from clay, one of the best materials for sound amplification thanks to its low sound absorbent coefficiency &mdash and recycled music scores. Place your earphone inside each “speaker” and your tunes can be heard by all.
The speakers are just a part of the research project into Noise/Sound that he is doing as part of his Masters degree at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.
