Why this $800 lamp is unlike any other

Why this $800 lamp is unlike any other

Sony have decided to add a touch of glass and light to their latest speaker.

The Song LSPX-S2 speaker uses three actuators that vibrate against the glass tube, which turns the entire tube into a speaker.

“Unlike the highly-directional sound of conventional tweeters, thanks to its cylindrical shape, the glass tube delivers precise sound quality from every angle,” said Sony.

The glass tube features a 35mm speaker as well as a passive radiator to amplify low notes, which can be found at the bottom of the device.

The light inside the glass casing offers 32 different levels of brightness, which can include dinner lighting to a bedside reading light. You can even make it flicker like a candle.

However, Sony has warned that the product isn’t strong enough to be suitable for household room illumination.

They’ve also explained that the “organic glass” is actually acrylic resin.

As the device has built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth as well as 8 hours of battery life, it’s a handy little speaker to have in your home.

A device like this doesn’t come cheap though, and it’ll set you back around $800.
