Joey Roth and Grovemade Team Up For Wood Speakers

Joey Roth Wood Speakers for Grovemade

Joey Roth has once again created a lustworthy set of speakers that would look amazing at home, on your desk at work, or even on display in a modern art museum.

(I’m a big fan of Joey Roth, and have featured his Ceramic Speakers and Sorapot Teapot on the site before.)

Made of either walnut or maple, the speakers are machined out of solid wood for wood’s superior acoustic properties that create clear and nuanced sound, and then mounted on stainless steel stands. A mathematically ideal horn is integrated directly into the enclosure, boosting the speaker’s low frequency response without the group delay and phase distortion inherent to more common bass reflex enclosures.

Each set of speakers is crafted one at a time in the Grovemade workshop in Portland, Oregon, and requires hours of CNC machining and skilled hand forming to complete.

You won’t find a better looking set of speakers, and with prices that start at just $499, it’s a reachable splurge for the person that wants their speakers to look as good as they sound.

…Bob Turek’s Stereo is a naughty speaker system?

Bob Turek Stereo

Bob Turek’s speaker system, called “Stereo”, is a bit… unusual.

It’s part of his Object Remix series, and Stereo “forces the music source into the center of attention and creates a radically new user interface”.

Putting a hand built stereo amplifier inside of a fiberglass mannequin with an MP3 player and speakers attached to and protruding from the naughty bits and pieces probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want a speaker system that’s hard to ignore, I can’t imagine one (or would prefer not to) that’s better than this.

…These speakers put the woof in woofer?

Woofer

These “Woofer” speakers might not knock socks off the audiophile living next door, but who cares what they sound like with looks like these. With a definite pun intended, the Woofers look like man’s best friend (sans heads of course) but sound far more sophisticated. Available in either black or white (which color was Fido again?), they’re sure to get conversations started at your next house party about as quickly as that story you tell about eating that goldfish in college.
