With Sound2 Speakers LaCie will propose a pair of desktop speakers as musical aesthetic. That is why the manufacturer has used Neil Poulton his favorite designer and Cabasse for sound. That the alliance is a reputable manufacturer in the Hi-Fi and a manufacturer recognized among the general public? Response in our test.
The Sound2 Speakers come in the form of white cylinders topped by a disk too white covered with a black cloth that protects the speaker. Views from the front so they take the form of a disk black uniform oriented ear of the listener if they are placed on the desktop due to a difference in size between the bottom of the cylinder and the bottom of the disc.
Aesthetically it will be appreciated or not but the idea is not bad. However, we regret that the design has taken precedence over practicality. On the one hand, Sound2 Speakers take up much space on the desktop. The surface useful that is to say the diameter of the speaker itself is very small compared to the total area.
In addition, the rubber feet under the disc supposed to stabilize the speakers are too close. Result the Sound2 Speakers tend if we are not careful roll and could quickly fall out of your office.
On the left speaker LaCie has also arranged a power switch and volume control. It is very discrete and integrated into the whole to such an extent that we had to consult the manual to find the button. In everyday life better off letting Sound2 Speakers lit continuously and adjust the volume from your computer as this system seems impractical.
