Back in May, we talked about the Sony Sountina and its release in Japan, but now we've gotten up close and personal with the glass speaker at IFA 2008. Milena has sent over some great shots of the omnidirectional speaker, which is truly part sound device, part piece of art.
The glass column speaker is 6 feet tall, that vibrates with a 50 to 20,000Hz range. Other specs include a 13-cm subwoofer, a 7-cm mid and organic glass tweeter. The base is available in black or silver and has three LEDs that you can adjust in order to suit your mood.
Inputs are analog RCA, digital coax and optical TOS. Plus, this tubular creation supports 24bit/96kHz stereo linear PCM. If you have a lot of extra cash to spend, this Sony offering can be available to you for about $10,200.
