They’re possibly not the best for a party, especially if you have clumsy friends, but these glass EVO speakers from Waterfall audio are a beauty to behold.
What’s really clever is how all the inside workings are hidden in the base and corners of the units or are flattened into elegant lines up the EVO’s slinky sides. The heavier audiophile cabling is stuffed down the bottom.
The glassy pair are available in two versions. The 40in Victoria and the 34in Iguasçu. Available in the US from February/March 2008 at $5,400 (£2,700) and $3,900 (£1950) a pair respectively, we have a feeling the France-based Waterfall will bring them to Europe soon after.
We’re guessing from the subtle yet sexy design the EVO speakers are aimed towards the minimalistically minded audiophile, rather than the hard-core party monster or the over enthusiastic Wii player.
In fact the speakers look so very smashable you’d better steer clear of any high-pitched music as well. So no Minnie Ripperton, Leo Sayer and definitely no BeeGees.
