Mark & Bjerre/Libratone

The convenience and versatility of wireless speakers used to mean sacrificing audio quality. No longer. Apple's AirPlay technology allows streaming of Apple Lossless and other sound files from your desktop, laptop, iPod, iPhone or iPad via your home Wi-Fi network. Denmark's Libratone takes that innovation a step further with its stand-alone single-unit AirPlay-enabled speakers – encased in cashmere in an array of colors to match any décor – that look as sharp as they sound.
