Colors Of Christmas

As we already mentioned, it’s not a proper holiday without an endless stream of Christmas tunes. While the perfect soundtrack can certainly set the mood, it would be nice if you actually had a few speakers that could blend into the holiday decor. Yes, we’re talking about red and green speakers!

Well Rounded Sound makes a few products in festive colors, and they’re designed and manufactured right in the middle of New York City. The Jack Terrier 2 (below) is a green option that can handle up to 30 watts, with a frequency range of 100 to 24,000 Hz and 8 ohms impedance. Other features include a bamboo reinforced paper cone and an enclosure that’s made of recyclable composite material. If you’d rather have the red option, the newly announced Yorkie SE has similar specs, except for a 100 to 21,000 Hz frequency range.

Libratone’s Live (above) also comes in Christmas colors, but it’s more of a standalone solution—as long as it’s not standing too far from a computer or an iOS device. This unit gets all of its music from the magic of Apple AirPlay, and can crank 150 watts via five drivers, built-in digital signal processing and digital amplification, and a little something called FullRoom for 360 degrees of sound.
