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

 

The dongle is gone as Libratone fully embraces AirPlay in its speakers

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

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

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

Libratone Live Wireless Loudspeaker Reviewed

 

The Libratone Live is, without a doubt, a stylish product that works well with the intended technologies. However, a pretty package is not the complete story when it comes to the Libratone Live.

The Libratone Live is a stylish piece of modern design that is bound to win favor with architectural aficionados and fans of the Case Study or Eames aesthetic ; If you're an Apple enthusiast, the Live is tailor-made for your lifestyle, as it integrates...

The Live, despite having a 3.5mm input, really is a loudspeaker that only appeals to Apple users, meaning those of us with Android devices and/or PCs are going to have to look elsewhere, despite Libratone's claims to the contrary ; While the Live's...

The Libratone Live is a unique product. As a critical loudspeaker it isn't exceptional, and yet its core audience most likely won't care, or even notice. It's style over substance, and for many, the Live's wireless pedigree and all-Apple interaction...

Libratone Live review

 

Minimalist design, easy to set up, untethered and hi-fi sound quality. These are the points that Libratone puts forward with their latest product, the Libratone Live. Does this $700 USD product live up to expectation or does it fizzle and categorize as...

Easy to use and setup ; Simple yet beautiful design ; Solid build quality ; Clear and robust sound even when volume is pushed to the max. No distortion ; Uses Apple Airplay technology and controlled solely via an iOS app, perfect for Apple centric users

Too Apple centric which leaves Windows user in a bit of a disadvantage

In a nutshell, if you’re an Apple/iOS user, the Libratone Live is a must have. Windows users can still use the Libratone Live, but their enjoyment may be a bit diminished.

Review: Libratone Live

 

The introduction of Apple last year is accelerating this trend. AirPlay lets you stream tunes from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or a computer running iTunes to any AirPlay-equipped device. That could be almost anything audio, such as an or a compact...

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.
