Neil Poulton Speakers

Lacie Speakers

I don’t want this to turn into one of those ‘product blogs’ (you know “check out this cutter for making Helvetica letters out of potatoes”) but I wanted to share these mighty fine Lacie USB Speakers. There’s something very pleasing about their boldness and stark simplicity.

These aren’t the first speakers Neil Poulton has designed for Lacie though, they’re very much the lovechild of his previous firewire speakers, shaped like an ocean liner funnel:

What was special about these was that they didn’t need a power supply, unlike the new USB ones – they took all the power they needed from the firewire connection.

Update – now that proper details have emerged these do indeed run from USB or mains power, so yay! Thanks commenters!
