Libratone Live and Lounge AirPlay Speaker Preview

 

Libratone markets their new Live and Lounge AirPlay speakers as "Scandinavia in your living room." Well, apparently this isn't the Ikea Scandinavia but the more expensive, cashmere-wrapped Scandinavia

Reviews: Libratone Live AirPlay Speaker

 

Before discussing the specifics of each unit, we need to underscore a point that we’ve previously discussed in reviews of other AirPlay speakers: one year after its introduction, AirPlay remains a somewhat confounding and disappointing solution...

The reality of Live’s performance is somewhat more complex. Judged strictly on its own merits without reference to competing products, Live is fairly understood as a pretty good audio system at a very high price premium. It’s very similar to the...

Libratone Live AirPlay speaker

 

This $899 hi-fi speaker is wrapped in wool, hiding some excellent sound quality

Excellent sound quality ; Somewhat portable

No internal battery ; Minor EQ adjustment ; No external volume control

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 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 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

 

Libratone offers attractive features in its Live AirPlay speaker system – style, sound quality, ease of use and a handle to carry it from room to room.

Libratone Live Speakers

 

I really like the speakers. The Live is the vertical one. Both the Live and the Lounge have 150W speakers. The placement is different for each one. I have mine attached to my TV and also use it to stream music from my iPhone and other Apple devices...

Design, sound, convenience with hardy any cables.

Price, was not able to try it out anywhere as it is only available online as of January 2013.
