The World Will Lose Two Rhinos For Every Spinnaker Speaker Set Edifier Sells

By Andrew Liszewski on at

How do you get beleaguered tech writers to take interest in what is basically just another Bluetooth speaker? It's all about form factor, and with Edifier's new Spinnaker speakers, a design that looks like they were lopped off the business end of a rhinoceros.

Just to be clear here, no rhinoceros were harmed in the making of this speaker, but I suspect a product tester or two might have lost an eye during the shakedown period. At 15 inches tall the Spinnaker's pointy design won't appeal to parents with a kid-safe obsession, but amateur audiophiles should be content with the tweeter, mid-range driver, and downward pointing sub packed in each horn.

The Spinnaker's aren't battery-powered, so you're limited to using them in the range of a power outlet. But they do include a wireless infrared remote for controlling volume and playback, so you can still wander about while rocking your tunes. Availability and pricing to be announced. [Edifier]
