Pros: Great design, Great Audio Quality
Customer comments about Libratone Zipp Speaker:
Long ago, I was an audiophile. I had expensive (and large) separate components. I bought them from one of those weird local stores that sold british equipment. Over time, family and work became more important. I didn't have the time or space to care, and sold everything off.
But my children love music, so I've been trying to find an audio system that I can live with. For the past few weeks, I've been playing with different wireless speakers.
The Libratone Zipp is, by far, the best device I've tried. It isn't the cheapest, nor does it have the most reliable connection (due to Apple's AirPlay technology). But it does three things exceptionally well.
First, it sounds great. I don't mean "great" as in "loud and bassy" (though it is plenty loud and provides plenty of bass for its size). I mean that it's very balanced and it lets you hear details. The Libratone makes you want to listen to more music.
Secondly, it integrates beautifully with your Apple devices (laptop, phone, iPad, etc). You can play music using whatever service (or app) you want: iTunes, Rdio, Spotify, etc. Unlike some other products that force you to use their player, you can use whatever player you want.
Third, it's unobtrusive and pretty. This system takes up a very small amount of space and doesn't stick out.
