Ceramic Speakers by Joey Roth

These Ceramic Speakers by Portland-based industrial designer Joey Roth are a thing of musical beauty. The twin speakers connect directly to iPods, computers, television and other devices, making a modern and minimal sound system. "Their sound becomes even more dynamic when paired with a turntable and a phono pre-amp."

"The Ceramic Speakers are made from porcelain, cork, and Baltic birch. Each material is minimally finished, left to add its natural beauty to the design. The included amplifier is made from stainless steel sheet metal, with a cast iron base and paulownia volume slider. Aside from the electronic components, plastic is completely avoided in the system’s construction."

And the mechanics and materials of the speaker add to the sound experience:

"Typical speakers are designed to play even the most compressed or poorly recorded track. They gloss over the details that give high-resolution music its depth. The Ceramic Speakers’ custom-made drivers, porcelain and cork enclosures, and Tripath amplifier reveal every nuance. They will show the difference between lossless and mp3 files, and will unlock vinyl’s richness.
