Remember Sony's non-directional, glass-tube speaker prototype
we showed you back in 2007? Guess what, it's now slotted into a production run. On June 20th, our Japanese brethren with ¥1,000,000 (about €6,500 / $10,000) to burn can take home the 6-foot tall, 50- to 20,000Hz trembling monument to music now known as the
Sountina aka NSA-PF1.
Inputs include analog RCA and digital coax and optical TOS supporting up to 24bit/96kHz linear PCM (stereo). As to the sound quality from the 13-cm subwoofer, 7-cm mid, and organic glass tweeter... who cares? This is all about making a visual statement which you'll communicate loud and clear, poser.
