Engadget Summary

Libratone has a knack for designing stylish speakers that sound pretty good; it also has a knack for charging enough to burn a serious hole in your wallet. Most speakers are rectangular and bland, but not the Loop -- the circular design "might not mesh with everyone," but TechCrunch says it's an "object of art itself." The Loop is also small and light enough to easily "stand up or to mount on a wall," according to Wired. Given its size you shouldn't expect audiophile quality, but Pocket-Lint was happy to report "it's powerful, rich and rather lovely at the right volumes." The Loop has the right design, size and sound but the wrong cost -- with a price tag of $500, it's a hard purchase to justify for most consumers.
