Libratone markets their new Live and Lounge AirPlay speakers as "Scandinavia in your living room." Well, apparently this isn't the Ikea Scandinavia but the more expensive, cashmere-wrapped Scandinavia. The speakers do boast not only the ability to stream from iDevices via Apple's AirPlay, but also tailor that sound via Libratone's dedicated app. Will it sound $700 worth of good for the portable Live speaker or $1300 worth of good for the larger, Lounge? We don't know. The real question in our minds is how much better will the $100 cashmere wrap make the speakers sound?

Although I'm not interested in those speakers, you just got me thinking about a cashmere wrap for my SVS. Or maybe some other lighter colored material to get a change from the black cloth that I've been looking at for four years.
