Since the gramophone was invented, audio companies have been trying to sell us all manner of speakers. We've seen it all, from tiny handheld boomboxes to ridiculously expensive mollusk-shaped luxury models, all promising unprecedented sound quality. It's kind of refreshing that we finally see a speaker that does away with all the fancy stuff.
This speaker from Nendo is all circuit board, and nothing else. Before you think the lack of alien-styling will deprive it of power and clarity, think again. These are high-end speakers, constructed of 1mm ceramic substrate. If you're a hardcore hardware guy, the brown, white and red trimming may set you off, but it helps the non-tech make sense of everything.
