Teenage Engineering made a sonic boom when it launched its OP-1 pocket synthesiser back in 2010. Right here at CES 2013 it's introducing a new audio curiosity -- the OD11. The firm is calling the device the Cloud Speaker and inside the (26 x 26 x 26 cm) cubic form you'll find a 100W class D amplifier with WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options. There's more to this geometry than just a speaker, though, as there are some internal smarts (filters and a DSP etc) that hope to deliver the best sound possible, and up to four can be connected together. While designed with Spotify and SoundCloud in mind, the OD11 is engineered from the ground up, including a custom "wireless volume remote knob" which is a disc-like magnetic object, that uses battery-sipping Bluetooth 4.0 to promise at least two years life. Sounds like a challenge to us. The speakers will cost around $800 each when they launch later this year.
