To some, speakers are simply pieces of equipment that get placed in corners, partially hidden from view. They deliver acceptable audio in an aesthetically bland design. We’re going to go out on a limb and say, that as a reader of Cool Material, you are not one of these people. If you’re like us, you put thought into everything that enters your front door, from electronics to beers to women. For a pair of speakers worthy of your carefully crafted playlists, Serene Audio has created these bamboo and leather audio blasters. They deliver high-end sound in a surprisingly compact and stylish package that doesn’t look like something you picked up in the clearance bin at Best Buy. Either spend the $395 for a pair for your home theater set up, or the extra $100 for the active version for use with a PC or your Apple gear.
