BROTHERS’ WALL OF SOUND
This right here is your neighbors’ worst nightmare: a 125 Watt, tube amplified, 28-element iPod speaker. Measuring about 3ft x 4ft, the Wall of Sound by Swedish brand Brothers might personify the definition of both overkill and awesomeness. Made for those of us who disregard safe levels of noise, the WOS peaks out at an headache inducing 95dB, about the same noise-level you’d get from putting a running chainsaw to your ear. The tube amplifier pushes silky smooth tone from 28 elements, each housed individually in handcrafted boxes to maximize clarity and balance. The Wall of Sound is available for pre-order online, or at Brothers’ flagship in Stockholm. Just a warning though, weighing in at 220lbs, your UPS bill might be as massive as this loudspeaker.
