Ah, isn’t this gadget picture perfect? Actually it’s one of the most practical designs I’ve seen that elegantly combined style and common sense. Perfect for your living room as it gently illuminates your area under a cozy warm light.
The Soundolier Duo Wireless Speaker Lamp sells for about $300 each. Yes, it’s available online but only in limited quantities. One website has even said they only have 4 pieces left.
The Soundolier Duo features a timeless contemporary design that complements most home decorating styles. The sleek black base and stem (alternate colors will soon be available) opens to a visually-balanced housing at the top of the lamp containing both a 5-1/4″, full range speaker and dimmer-controlled lighting fixture. Using a patent-pending, pole piece mounted dispersion design, the Soundolier Duo evenly disperses sound in a 360 degree arc, virtually eliminating localization.
Thanks to its advanced 2.4GHz digital technology, the Soundolier Duo’s wireless reception does not suffer from the interference problems found with 900MHz and early 2.4GHz systems. Its wireless transmitter provides 200-foot line-of-sight transmission, making it suitable for waiting rooms, offices, salons or other places where soft lighting and omnidirectional sound are desired. What’s more, signal communication can be switched among four difference channels to avoid interference with WiFi computer networks, cordless phones, or wireless appliances.
If you’re thinking of having a fresh start for the new year… hey, you can start with freshening up your home with one or two of these speaker lamps. I think it’s worth the money.
