Carrot Grant & JHG Design Audio Speakers

Some of you may remember the Buffalo Box was recently included in our weekly sales roundup, sparking us to investigate what other audio offerings available from the small independent studio. The Carrot Grant catalog revealed a small selection of speakers designed and handmade in Philadelphia by designer Jesse Gerard, all with an eye for sculptural details...

It came as no surprise one of their speakers, the MT. Man, was featured in the Philadelphia Art Alliance Gallery, emblematic of a company whose products reflect an artisan's eye with an engineer's ear. At $900 a pair, these 22" x 7" x 8" speakers aren't "cheap" and they're rated only to handle a modest 50 watts, but on the other hand they're basically one-of-a-kind audio sculptures, handmade from solid cherry-wood with a slim form factor that may appeal to apartment dwellers looking for a unique addition to their home audio system.

In the more affordable, smaller bookshelf category are the Symphony Cricket Sound System, a previous Daily Find (hmm, there appears to have been a price hike since we last reported about these):

The built in amplifier makes it as simple as it gets. Just plug in your iPod, turntable, or anything else that plays your music. The six inch tall speaker boxes are made by hand from birch plywood, with a natural finish, using classic joinery.

Check out the rest over at The JHG Design Store over at Etsy.
