Moves your music around the house – Airplay with Libratone Live

Libratone Live available in 5 colors retailing at S$1199

Libratone Live works like an acoustic instrument filling the entire room with sound. The tweeters and midrange drivers disperse sound in different directions, reflecting it off the walls, providing 360° sound. High-end components such as ribbon-based tweeters along with digital signal processing and digital amplification gives you premium sound. They call it FullRoom.

Libratone Live is designed to enhance the experience of Apple products. It works with iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Furthermore, as long as you have iTunes 10.1 or later, you are good to go – no matter if it’s on your Mac or your PC.

Libratone Live can be used with AirPlay (wireless from Apple devices) and 3.5-mm audio minijack for analog or optical digital sound. More technical specs available here.

Tried and tested the Libratone Live, without AirPlay cos I had problem setting up with my Singtel Mio modem. Sound quality is alright, considering its steep pricing. Set it against a wall or better still, at a corner of the room for better audio. Its better for none loud music, if you’re into head-banging, mind blowing audio, this is not for you.

Till I get my hands on more AirPlay speakers (and being able to set it up properly for use at home), I’ll keep my accumulated thoughts based on reviews I read online to myself. If you’re considering getting one, google for more reviews. :P

Libratone sets are currently on sale at all Apple Premium Resellers, leading consumer electronic stores (e.g. HMV, Challenger) and at Changi Airport’s duty free shops in all three terminals.

The Ferrari Cavallino Headphones and Earphones deliver a premium audio experience coupled with sumptuous comfort. This I totally agree. Tried and tested the G150 and T250, both gave me great audio while I’m on the go and the comfort level is among the highest from the other range of earphones I’ve used.

The Ferrari Cavallino Collection is influenced by the emotive driving experience of Ferrari’s timeless GT road cars. Premium textures and materials combined with superior finishes create unparalleled luxury and beautiful aesthetics. A range that deservedly features the illustrious ‘Cavallino Rampante’ (Prancing Horse) marque, defines excellence, finesse, and is truly iconic.
