Davone Audio RITHM Speakers: Sustainable Sound

We totally missed Paul Schenkel's unusually shaped floor speakers while at CES just awhile ago (Davone Audio was tucked away from the main floors and inside the Venetian Hotel during the trade show). But we're glad we caught sight of them now, as the Federation-logo style shape speakers are notable not only for their sound engineered by a "degreed aeronautical engineer with a masters in physics, a background in acoustics, and a deep passion for great architecture and industrial design", but also because the Davone RITHM speakers are made with wood from sustainable growers...

The 27" tall Davone Rithm's is comprised of multiple glued thin layers of genuine oak or walnut that aid in combating the enemy of all audiophiles: vibration. The bowed shape also adds to the speaker's stiffness, with the bent wood design additionally referencing the Midcentury furniture design of the works of Arne Jacobsen and Charles and Ray Eames. These don't come cheap, but they sure stand out as some of the nicest looking speakers we've seen. More information about the Davone RITHM Speakers at the Davone Audio website.
