Even if you could get perfect sound from a pair of speakers, if they were bright pink and had pictures of Hannah Montana on them (that’s what the kids are watching these days, right?) we would never buy them. Are we image obsessed? Hell yeah we are. Is it too much to ask to get something that is well-made and stylish to boot? We keep this in the back of our minds when we are searching out products, and we found the perfect combo in these Cubik Speakers from Palo Alto Audio Design. Thanks to digital amplification and a digital USB connection, these desktop speakers deliver sound that you wouldn’t expect from, well, desktop speakers. The advanced enclosure design means you don’t even need a subwoofer with these little cubes. People won’t pay attention to how messy your desk is with these on it.
