I’m not much of a technophile. I like my music on good, old-fashioned vinyl records played through good, old-fashioned speakers. But every now and again some beautiful bit of technology comes along that warms my throwback heart. These Firgaro speakers by SW Speakers are one of these delicious items.
The Figaros have an amazing combination of avant garde and high tech styling and traditional materials. The carbon fiber exterior is built for beautiful amplification, and is gorgeously contrasted with the carved and twisted mahogany bases. Its a weird mish-mash of aesthetics, but one that works out remarkably well. The speakers themselves look like some sort of sci fi alien eyeballs, but the wood base is perfectly classic.
Don’t be fooled by the small size of the speakers, the Figaros are designed to delivered big big sound. The Swedish and Austrian craftsmanship is enviable, to say the least. So, if you’re an audiophile looking for something new and unique, the Figaros might be right up your alley.
