Podspeakers

19 Dec 2006

Thanks for all the suggestions for compact iPod speakers! As promised, for those that want to know what I went for, I ended up getting a set of Scandyna Micropod Speakers

Designed by the team that created the mollusc-esque Nautilus for B&W, they follow the same design aesthetic.

The fact that they look a little bit like my logo had nothing to with it of course. ;o)

These gorgeous speakers wowed me when I got to hear a demo with my iPod. I also fell in love with the shape and subtle off-white ceramic style colour (it’s not really that obvious in these photos). I believe off-white will be next years black (watch out for the powerbook).

All the possible options had one drawback, and with these it was lack of an all-in-one design, meaning more wires. But once I got them home and installed, I just don’t notice the wires. Also, as a previous commenter pointed out, none of the non-apple products feature a remote as well designed as the Apple Remote, but the Micropod remote is pretty neutral.

I’m using them without the ‘Sputnik Spikes’ so that they fit in the small area I intended them for. Scandyna will soon be releasing a ‘V Dock’ that will allow me to output video, as well as take auxiliary audio in. I’m so happy with these speakers, but when the V Dock comes out, I’ll be truly sorted!
