Aimed at audiophiles

Designer Joey Roth has announced the Ceramic Speakers, a pair of cone-styled speakers made from porcelain, cork and Baltic birch. The set includes an amplifier based on the Tripath 2024 T-Amp, with a mix of gold plating, stainless steel sheet metal and cast iron. The system uses 1/8-inch jacks, and 16-gauge oxygen-free copper speaker cables with banana plug connectors.

Frequency range is estimated between 70Hz and 20kHz. The speakers' volume slider is mounted on a split-off central unit, also home to the amplifier. Roth's company is currently offering a pre-order for the first 200 systems, which are priced at $495 and are scheduled to be ship in early November, prior to a release in retail stores.
