Swiss luxury audio manufacturer Goldmund has unveiled its latest creation, the Melos Active Wireless Loudspeakers. These compact wireless speakers are designed to epitomize the harmonious combination of advanced technology and meticulous craftsmanship that Goldmund is renowned for.
Drawing inspiration from the melodies of ancient Greece, the Melos Active Wireless Speakers are an updated iteration of the existing Melos passive bookshelf speakers. These active speakers incorporate a Goldmund amplifier and a wireless receiver, though the specifics of the latter remain closely guarded by the company.
As with all Goldmund products, the Melos Active Loudspeakers feature solid metal cabinets, elegantly finished in Goldmund's signature grey, and complemented by matching grey grilles. One of the key highlights of this release is the suggested retail price of 32,000 CHF, which roughly equates to $36,000, firmly positioning the Melos Active in the high-end luxury audio market.
"Melos boasts a sleek, monolithic cube housing that faithfully reproduces sound in its purest form. Its distinctive lines inspired by the Gaïa speaker design, pay tribute to the raw beauty of nature's rock formations, reflecting Goldmund's dedication to authenticity and timeless design. The active version Melos is elegantly adorned in Goldmund's signature grey finish, complemented by matching grey grilles, reflecting the essence of our lifestyle-inspired design," the company describes.
