Danish outfit, Libratone, has announced the launch of a distinctive looking new wireless speaker with the Libratone Loop.
The Loop can either be mounted on the supplied 'duo' stand or wall-mounted and works with iPad, iPhone, Android devices or Mac/PC. Streaming options include Apple’s AirPlay or DNLA for Android users. The speaker can also be used without a Wi-Fi network through Libratone’s PlayDirect technology. This works in conjunction with AirPlay and DLNA, creating a direct Wi-Fi connection between the Libratone Loop and any compatible device.
Additionally, the Libratone Loop also lets users stream music wirelessly from Spotify, Pandora and Internet radio stations.
Dressed in Libratone’s characteristic Italian wool, the speaker has changeable covers in several colours that are easy to take off and replace. Initial choices will be Pepper Black, Salty Grey or Raspberry Red with Pineapple Yellow, Passion Pink, Plum Purple, Petrol Blue and Icy Blue to follow.
Built-in DSP and Digital Amplification along with ribbon-based tweeters provide the audio signature and Libratone’s patented FullRoom technology is employed to do what is says on the tin.

A free Libratone app for Apple and Android devices provides the option to enhance and customise the audio experience to match the speaker’s surroundings and the type of audio it plays.
Tommy Anderson, CEO at Libratone comments: “The Libratone Loop is born of the same design philosophy that defines the rest of the company’s lineup - uncompromising beauty and unparalleled sound quality. With this product we also wanted to focus on versatility, which is why we’ve given the customer the option to either place the speaker on a shelf or mount it on the wall.
The Libratone Loop is sold at Apple Stores and John Lewis, amongst others, for £399.
