Libratone Lounge

 

A £1000+ soundbar with the looks of a piece of designer furniture.

Looks great, Extremely well-made, Utterly convenient for iOS users

Sound lacks scale and volume, No phono input

Libratone Lounge

 

The Lounge is a tall, beefy-sounding bar. But it lacks the sonic ability needed to make an impact at this level

Entertaining sound ; Controlled treble ; Allows for wireless streaming

Can sound messy ; Overbearing bass ; Limited connections ; Extra height could hinder positioning

The Lounge is a large, attention-grabbing and powerful-sounding speaker. But its ham-fisted approach to movies and music lacks long-term appeal.

Libratone Lounge review

 

The solidly built Lounge is without doubt one of the biggest soundbars ever made, and with its Italian cashmere jacket, certainly one of the most surprisingly clad. While designed to make an impact thanks to its maximalist proportions, it has a...

Powerful, detailed sound; top-notch design; simple operation

Expensive; sheer size may be awkward; no HDMI connectivity

The setup procedure for the Lounge is quite simple, and instruction booklets are included for whether you're using the initial setup through an iPhone, Mac, PC, or other device. We set up the Lounge using an iPod touch — waiting for the Lounge to start...

Libratone Lounge

 

If you really want to improve the sound quality of your Apple device you need external sound, here is perhaps the widest single speaker unit I have looked at. From the same people that the recently reviewed Libratone Zipp came from, but bigger, much...

This Libratone Lounge measures 101x10.5x24cm. While there is a wall mounting kit provided I would check the wall strength before fitting it as it weights 12kilos. I used it on the floor and in front of my TV on the TV unit. This is designed as an ‘i’...

Libratone Lounge AirPlay speaker

 

Libratone's soundbar combines high quality sound and high quality design

Clear, clean sound at all volumes ; Simple, versatile (for iOS users) ; Sturdy design and build

Sound lacks some bass and expansiveness ; No physical volume control

Libratone Lounge

 

If you have room in your budget and home for this behemoth, the Libratone Lounge is unlikely to disappoint, unless you're really only craving booming bass.

Extremely powerful speaker with wide stereo separation for a single unit. Easy set-up, streams wireless audio via AirPlay, DLNA, as well as via direct from device, no wireless router needed. Pleasing visual design.

Massive and expensive. Digital signal processing limits bass at high volumes, preventing distortion but altering the sound signature on deep bass tracks. No remote control.

Libratone Lounge review

 

The largest (and most expensive) AirPlay speaker yet

Easily fills a large living room with sound ; Excellent audio reproduction ; Wireless AirPlay convenience

Pricey: $100 extra for colored cashmere ; Limited to a single mini-TOSLINK input ; Stereo only, can’t simulate multi-channel surround like other soundbars

Libratone Lounge AirPlay Loudspeaker Reviewed

 

A new player by the name of Libratone is entering the fray, bringing with them the Lounge wireless loudspeaker. With AirPlay compatibility and modern looks, the Lounge promises a lot. How does it deliver? Read on to find out.

So how do I best sum up the Libratone Lounge wireless loudspeaker? Style over substance. While those whose decor leans more towards Case Study furniture and Eames lounge chairs will no doubt relish the Lounge's modern visual appeal, there just isn't...
