Design: Objects of Lust 2 - Noisemakers

Not a chance to own: Aesthesis Gramaphone Speakers
Came across these exotic speakers in my travels. These beauties will set you back 60,000 euros. The site does say they're almost 4 feet tall so I guess that's something. Hopefully they have good bass... Only 100 pairs are ever to be made. I suppose, if they all sell that's 6 million euros. That's a pretty good haul.

If you go to the site check out the brochure at the bottom of the page. Not only is it beautiful to look at but the way you view it is quite sexy too.

Affordable: iHome iP1 and iP100
The iP1 has special "patented Bongiovi Acoustics' Digital Power Station technology". On the iHome site they used to have a test drive that simulated the difference with and without Bongiovi on. It's not there now but can probably still be found if one looks. Sadly, no built in radio, unless you have the capability on your iPod/iPhone. Cost is $299 US.

Also affordable is the iHome iP100 which now has the capacity to mount an iPad on the top for $199 US. We have 2 of the earlier versions of this (iH5) and they sound great. 

If you go to the site take a look at the tiny, tiny iHM series speakers. We have an earlier version of the single speaker. It's amazing how much sound comes out of something not much larger than an egg.
