Libratone Loop

 

The Libratone Loop is an attractive-looking AirPlay speaker, but at $500 it needs to do more than just look pretty, and it just doesn't sound as good as it should.

Looks attractive. Gets loud. Clear, detailed-sounding midrange performance.

Distorting bass and overly bright highs with some genres of music. Stand can buzz against the table with heavy bass.

The Libratone Loop is certainly eye-catching, but its $500 price tag demands more than just looking good. A speaker this expensive should sound great, and the Loop simply isn't up to snuff. If you want the best performance in this price range, the...

Libratone Loop review

 

The Loop's design makes it a pleasant aesthetic addition to the modern home, but its sharp upper register and flat midrange put it far from the kind of eloquent and balanced sound we expect in a hi-fi device.

The Liberatone Loop’s design makes it a pleasant aesthetic addition to the modern home, and will likely attract attention and discussion from visitors. Serving a background role, it will provide sufficient sound at a dinner party or social event. But...

Review: Libratone Loop

 

Meet Libratone's latest speaker. It's pretty, it's fuzzy, and it sounds fantastic — but only when AirPlay cooperates.

One look and you can imagine it as a living room centerpiece. Simple setup for an AirPlay speaker. Total sonic clarity, even at high volumes. Changeable cover colors. Easy to stand up or to mount on a wall

AirPlay remains unreliable, especially in areas with lots of wireless traffic in the air. Two-second delay for non-iTunes playback. 0 is a big price tag for a single speaker

The Libratone Loop combines great sound with great looks. Having both more than justifies the $499.95 retail price.

Libratone Loop Review: The AirPlay Speaker That Looks As Good As It Sounds

 

For AirPlay speakers, there's a lot of choice out there. Often that can result in the feeling that there are essentially a lot of people sticking to an easy formula and churning out virtually interchangeable devices, but Libratone is a speaker-maker...

Room-filling sound ; Easy wall mounting with included hardware

Expensive ; Portable design but no battery

The Loop is a great AirPlay speaker, and with DLNA support, it’s relatively platform agnostic. I’m a sucker for the design aesthetic Libratone has chosen, too, so that’s a big selling point as well, but it’s the sound that brings it home. Libratone is...

Review: Libratone Loop AirPlay speaker

 

Danish audio firm Libratone adds to its collection of high-end speakers with the Loop, a round and relatively slim unit that produces some of the best treble fidelity we've heard from a product its size.

Ribbon tweeters offer unparalleled treble fidelity ; Wide, clean soundstage ; Effective use of DSP technology

Weak mid-range reproduction ; Not as powerful as other in-class speakers ; Wooly design is not for everyone

If your taste in music leans toward bass-thumping beats with an over-saturated mid-range, Loop is likely not for you. The speaker's design lends itself more to tight, restrained listening than raw output.

Libratone Loop review

 

We've had something of a love-hate relationship with the Libratone Loop. This circular-fronted speaker has a distinctive, quirky design and - even though we've ended up with the grey finish for review instead of one of the more exciting colour options...

Plenty of bass, sounds really good, quirky design and colour options give it a distinctive edge

No Bluetooth, setup and AirPlay playback hit and miss, expensive, driver rattling, top-end can be harsh

Our experience with the Libratone Loop has been a rollercoaster ride from frustration through to full-on aural pleasure and then back to the start again. But that's because we’ve had AirPlay issues - something you might not experience. That being the...

Libratone Loop review

 

Bright and open signature ; Tight bass ; Well-timed and articulate ; Flexible placement

Treble can sound sharp ; Non-Apple users may find it slightly limiting

An enjoyable sound from a unique-looking speaker
