For sale is a new Libratone Lounge in box. Libratone is most known for its smaller, very premium, design-oriented wireless speakers. Unfortunately it didn't get as much press as it's smaller siblings but the Lounge is their former flagship speaker sporting a true 2.1-channel configuration and of course its modern industrial design in a single chassis.
Underneath the Italian cashmere cover is a pair of ribbon tweeters, 4" ceramic midrange drivers plus a shared 8" driver dedicated to low frequncies - each with their own dedicated amplifiers. While it obviously won't go quite as low as a separate outboard subwoofer, the sound is extremely well balanced, resolving yet polite, rich and very full.
Included in the box is the wall mounting bracket which is simple to use, but it also of course looks great on a credenza.
Quite frankly, the only significant drawbacks were price and size - regarding the former, its certainly priced to sell. While it would definitely fit under any 50" display and under, I would look at the dimms below. I included a pic in the listing but I have wall mounted one and it looks just on the wall!
