Libratone Live AirPlay Speaker

 

Beautifully designed, individual, intuitive and excellent sound quality, so why does this AirPlay speaker fractionally miss the mark?

Intuitive AirPlay setup ; Powerful, detailed audio reproduction ; Control via smartphone app ; Unique, if polarising, design ; No dedicated remote control

Limited sound separation ; Extremely expensive ; No iPod/iPhone dock or charging

), but this quickly gives way to curiosity when you realise what appears to be a wool cover is in fact the finish of the speaker itself. This doesn't immediately make a strong first impression - our unit was covered with pieces of foam from its...

Libratone Live

 

Good with voices, but needs to perform to a much higher standard to be seen as a serious contender

Cashmere finish ; Striking looks ; Expressive midrange ; PlayDirect works with some phones and tablets

Splashy, unrefined treble ; Ill-defined, woolly bass ; Relatively pricey

The Libratone Live isn’t unlistenable by any stretch, but there’s a lack of detail, finesse and refinement when stacked up against rivals such as the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 and Audio Pro Allroom Air One.

Libratone Live AirPlay speaker review

 

The speaker chassis is a triangular prism, with smooth rounded corners. There's a thick, chrome-finished metal handle on the back at the top that makes the Live easy to pick up.

Libratone's Live AirPlay wireless speaker is an exceedingly simple, exceptionally good-looking product. It's well suited to Apple's idiot-proof wireless music streaming system, too, being controlled entirely remotely.

Libratone Live review

 

Designed to impress, the Libratone Live is a mix of satin chrome and luxury cashmere wool in a choice of subtle colours. Dock free, music is streamed via AirPlay from iTunes and iOS devices.

Listening to familiar music on the Libratone Live is like hearing it with fresh ears.

Libratone Live

 

The very pricey Libratone Live speaker offers generally high-quality audio performance, but its stunning, unique look was clearly the top design priority.

Striking design with cashmere wool cover. Powerful audio output with clear definition at moderate volumes. Streams audio wirelessly via Apple's AirPlay.

Extremely expensive. At top volumes, some deep bass tracks distort. No Volume, Mute, navigation controls on unit.

Libratone Live review

 

Let's get the announcement out of the way first. Libratone just let loose a pair of high-end wireless AirPlay speakers for the home: the $699 / €699 / £599 Libratone Live tower or the $1,299 /...

Excellent sound reproduction for the price ; Wireless AirPlay convenience ; Ribbon tweeters

Pricey: $100 extra for colored cashmere ; Limited features compared to Zeppelin Air

I can wholeheartedly recommend the Libratone Live AirPlay speaker to any iOS or iTunes user itching to fill an urban space with serious wireless sound
