Standing just 36mm tall, the round device has a 160mm diameter and weighs 7.5kg, making it fairly easy to incorporate in to your system.

The Planet LW speakers meanwhile are 2-way speakers with a 6.5in mid-bass driver and a 25mm tweeter, and sport the famous, instantly recogisable Elipson design.

They're available in red, white or black and there are accessory options including a floor stand, wall mount and ceiling mount.
