‘Rithm’ speaker is a beautiful Star Trek symbol
Danish company Davone’s Rithm speaker combines quality sound with art. I wonder if they knew they were creating an artful Star Trek symbol as well. It says, “I’m in Starfleet and I own cool stuff. Deal.” The speaker has a 8-inch coaxial driver with a 1-inch dome tweeter in the center of the woofer. Davone will tell ya that the layers of glue and wood that make the frame actually give it extra damping and reduce vibrations for superior sound quality. Get one in walnut, oak, or black stained oak. It’s perfect decor for your Starship’s ready-room.

Anthny Gallo Acoustics Reference 5LS loudspeakerAnyone in the market for a high-end loudspeaker should take a moment to check out the latest release from Anthony Gallo Acoustics.
