Libratone Lounge stems from a long line of Scandinavian design classics - minimalistic elegance means it blends in yet stands out at the same time.
The Libratone Lounge AirPlay Speaker is easy to use - simply select the music you want to listen to on your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad or Mac, press play and listen. The Libratone Lounge begins to play your music as soon as your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Mac is within range and stops playing when you are outside it.
Apple AirPlay technology streams high-quality audio wirelessly from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to your Libratone Lounge. And you can enjoy your music without any loss of quality at any distance, as long as you are within reach of your wireless network.
Libratone Lounge plays music like an acoustic instrument, dispersing sound waves in all directions and reflecting them off the walls giving a 360-degree FullRoom sound experience. Whether you're dancing, working, playing or watching TV, and no matter how far you are from the speaker, the audio experience will stay the same.
The Libratone app (available from the App Store) allows you to enhance and customise your FullRoom musical experience. The app lets you input information about the placement of your Libratone Lounge and it then automatically adjusts the sound to fit your room. The app also allows you to use your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to control the volume thus eliminating the need for an extra remote.

Very nice, UPS did their best to get road rash all over the outer carton and I was bit concerned
At first glance.
The packagin Very nice, UPS did their best to get road rash all over the outer carton and I was bit concerned
At first glance.
The packaging is almost bombproof, when I finally got it opened I thought the Italian wool was pretty wrinkled but that turned out to be yet another protective wrap that was encased in heavy flexible styrofoam stuff.
It sounds great, the whole room setup seems overrated to me because I can't hear a big difference, could just be me though.
Aside from sounding great even though Wifi hiccups occasionally, what I thought was a really nice feature is that you can preview songs on iTunes and use it for games or anything with sound. Ikaossilator sounds awesome but it lags abit.
I give it 4 thumbs up. …

Review after 2 months
Now that I'm used to this speaker, it is lacking in some important areas.
If you listen to vocals or Jazz it's pretty decent, b Now that I'm used to this speaker, it is lacking in some important areas.
If you listen to vocals or Jazz it's pretty decent, but any other genre even simple stuff makes this speaker seem challenged.
There is too much music that sounds like soup spilt on a hot stove element to make it worth the money, plus it has a very annoying habit of cutting out even if the wifi is at max signal strength.
Maybe there will be some type of update to fix this. …

Looks great, sounds better
I saw this in the Apple Store Fifth Avenue in NYC. The wool grille made everyone want to touch it. As a house present for Christma I saw this in the Apple Store Fifth Avenue in NYC. The wool grille made everyone want to touch it. As a house present for Christmas my wife thought it was all about my preferences for how powerful it is, not just how good it looks. But since she is addicted to her iPhone and iPad, she now loves how she just clicks to AirPlay whatever she is hearing or watching and this speaker just fills the room. I like that is has optical audio for my HDTV sound effects, and I also like that you can replace the wool grille with another cover should you want to freshen up the look in a room, down the road. …

Great hifi product with a distinctive timeless design
After falling in love with the simplicity, the sound and the design of the Libratone Lounge, I went through almost all reviews of After falling in love with the simplicity, the sound and the design of the Libratone Lounge, I went through almost all reviews of the product and finally bought it. And i am very pleased with the product.
The design is gorgeous and the sound is crisp, large, powerful and very detailed. And furthermore I have not experienced one single dropout. The airplay functionality is as usual great and if connected to the tv, you can use the tv's standard remote to control the sound and if you turn on airplay it automatically takes over. Clever made! The included wall-mount is also great and it even has a build in bubble-level measure unit.
I can only recommend this design speaker to everyone that wants that perfect Apple'ish compromise by very good and powerful hifi sound, unique simplicity and a beautiful timeless design. You will be very pleased with the Lounge. …

Libratone Lounge - very expensive, lousy service, support
Beware, beware, beware if you are thinking of forking out USD 1,3000 for this speaker. True it looks great, but it just doesn't w Beware, beware, beware if you are thinking of forking out USD 1,3000 for this speaker. True it looks great, but it just doesn't work......and if you have a problem, kiss good-bye to getting any help or support from Libratone. I bought mine several months ago, it just didn't work, despite their fancy 'simple, straight of the box' marketing ploys. It didn't work, they don't respond to phone calls (only notionally available in the US) and everywhere else in the world support is offered only via e-mail - which they ignore. Truly, the worst experience for such a purported 'high end' product. Even when I did manage to contact them, many months later, when they agreed the unit was defective. not a single word of regret, remourse or apology from staff member 'Henning Eithz' in their 'support' department. Beware, stay well, clear - a beautiful device, that doesn't work and has no effective support. ONE UNHAPPY, BURNED CLIENT - NEVER AGAIN !!! …
