Libratone Lounge

 

If you have room in your budget and home for this behemoth, the Libratone Lounge is unlikely to disappoint, unless you're really only craving booming bass.

Extremely powerful speaker with wide stereo separation for a single unit. Easy set-up, streams wireless audio via AirPlay, DLNA, as well as via direct from device, no wireless router needed. Pleasing visual design.

Massive and expensive. Digital signal processing limits bass at high volumes, preventing distortion but altering the sound signature on deep bass tracks. No remote control.

Libratone Lounge review

 

You've likely never heard of Libratone. Fair enough. But maybe you're familiar with Steinway Lyngdorf Audio, the Danish company that specializes in high-performance professional audio? Jes...

Easily fills a large living room with sound ; Excellent audio reproduction ; Wireless AirPlay convenience

Pricey: $100 extra for colored cashmere ; Limited to a single mini-TOSLINK input ; Stereo only, can’t simulate multi-channel surround like other soundbars

There’s no other AirPlay-enabled speaker on the market capable of matching the Lounge in price (that's bad) or acoustic muscle (that's good)

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

Dual Review: Libratone's Lounge and Zipp speakers cover both ends of the spectrum

 

Libratone has made a name for itself by baking high-tech components, innovative design and consistent sound quality into its systems, features usually seen only in much more expensive systems. AppleInsider was able to take a look at how the Lounge, one...

Ribbon tweeters and four-inch drivers offer full midrange sound ; Wide stereo separation ; Incredibly loud but clear ; Amazing sound fidelity from small package ; Room-filling 360-degree sound ; Advanced connectivity and extended battery life on-the-go...

Weak mid-range reproduction ; Restrictive DSP system ; Expensive ; A bit larger than competing products ; DSP overbearing in certain EQ modes ; The Libratone Lounge ; on Amazon, representing a $300 savings off MSRP. Colors available include Slate Grey,...

The Lounge and Zipp are on two ends of the spectrum in terms of size, power output and usability, but Libratone has managed to imbue both models with similar sound quality. While their sonic fingerprints don't perfectly align, the use of ribbon...

Libratone Lounge AirPlay Loudspeaker Reviewed

 

A new player by the name of Libratone is entering the fray, bringing with them the Lounge wireless loudspeaker. With AirPlay compatibility and modern looks, the Lounge promises a lot. How does it deliver? Read on to find out.

So how do I best sum up the Libratone Lounge wireless loudspeaker? Style over substance. While those whose decor leans more towards Case Study furniture and Eames lounge chairs will no doubt relish the Lounge's modern visual appeal, there just isn't...

Libratone Lounge review

 

The solidly built Lounge is without doubt one of the biggest soundbars ever made, and with its Italian cashmere jacket, certainly one of the most surprisingly clad. While designed to make an impact thanks to its maximalist proportions, it has a...

Powerful, detailed sound; top-notch design; simple operation

Expensive; sheer size may be awkward; no HDMI connectivity

Libratone Lounge AirPlay speaker

 

Libratone's soundbar combines high quality sound and high quality design

Clear, clean sound at all volumes ; Simple, versatile (for iOS users) ; Sturdy design and build

Sound lacks some bass and expansiveness ; No physical volume control

Libratone's Lounge speaker system is designed to hide away on your sideboard or take pride of place under your plasma TV - wherever it sits, it'll look great and be incredibly easy to use (if you've got an iDevice). The sound that the Libratone Lounge...

The setup procedure for the Lounge is quite simple, and instruction booklets are included for whether you're using the initial setup through an iPhone, Mac, PC, or other device. We set up the Lounge using an iPod touch — waiting for the Lounge to start...

Libratone Lounge

 

A £1000+ soundbar with the looks of a piece of designer furniture.

Looks great, Extremely well-made, Utterly convenient for iOS users

Sound lacks scale and volume, No phono input

Libratone Lounge

 

The Lounge is a tall, beefy-sounding bar. But it lacks the sonic ability needed to make an impact at this level

Entertaining sound ; Controlled treble ; Allows for wireless streaming

Can sound messy ; Overbearing bass ; Limited connections ; Extra height could hinder positioning

The Lounge is a large, attention-grabbing and powerful-sounding speaker. But its ham-fisted approach to movies and music lacks long-term appeal.
