The Transparent Speaker Sponsored

Instead of adding knobs, unnecessary features, and other knickknacks to make a better speaker, People People did the exact opposite. The Swedish design agency stripped one bare to create the most beautiful speaker you've never laid eyes on. The glass box holds just the premium audio components and nothing else. The active 2.1 Transparent Speaker comes ready for Wi-Fi devices like Apple's AirPort Express so you can stream music, or plug in your device using the speaker's 3.5mm mini-jack.
