If you're looking for some snazzily coloured speakers for your lounge, check out the new VS series forom Boston Acoustics.
They're available in red, white or black gloss cabinets with a choice of cherry, maple, silver, red, ebony or black top and bottom panels.
But behind the brash new look is some serious engineering. The 'wave-like' curved surfaces of the speaker cabinet are designed to reduce internal standing waves and panel resonances to deliver superior sound quality to that of a conventional 'box' speaker design, says Boston.
All speakers in the range incorporate a proprietary Super Wide Bandwidth (SWB) tweeter with a Coupled Dual Concentric Diaphragm (CDCD). This is claimed to minimise phase shift and distortion while improving sonic motion, so producing clearer sound at high frequencies.
