Trying to bring music into a

contemporary living room without

upsetting one’s significant other can

be a vexing task. A big rack of gear

never seems to solve this problem,

so something more stylish is usually

required. Designer Joey Roth’s

Ceramic Speaker and Subwoofer

system, priced at $1,095, presents an

excellent solution for those seeking

playback with some serious style. The

satellite speakers, which look a little

like a pair of outdoor floodlights, fuse

modern art with functionality; they

blend into your living space easily, yet

almost always spark conversation.

The Ceramic Speaker and

Subwoofer embody the Scandinavian

minimalist design approach. The

4-inch, aluminum-capped, 89-dB

efficient drivers are flush-mounted, with

a 1-inch porcelain edge at the center

creating an eyeball look. A cork plug is

used both as a mount for the binding

posts and as a tight seal for the casing.

A 15-watt-per-channel Tripath amplifier,

in an aluminum baking-soda-box-sized

shell, provides the juice. (continued)
