Tombox

Speakers don't have to be old to look cool — but it definitely doesn't hurt. Made from reused discarded loudspeakers, every Tombox (€190-€250; roughly $230-$300) is unique, offering a built-in rechargeable battery that can last for up to two weeks, an oversized volume knob, a single 3.5mm cable and plug for hooking up your audio source, and retro styling that trumps any modern boombox. Also available in oversized plus models.

  • Sonos Sub

    We're big fans of Sonos' wireless speakers, but they're not exactly built to handle deep bass. The Sonos Sub ($600-$700) is. This self-powered subwoofer connects effortlessly to your existing Sonos system, adding a healthy dose of low-end aptitude thanks to two force-canceling speakers that are positioned face-to-face to eliminate cabinet buzz and rattle. Available next-month in a gorgeous glossy black finish, with a matte black model arriving in October for a $100 discount.

  • Symbol Record Console

    Vinyl made its comeback some time ago, but the record player has yet to catch up. Until now. The Symbol Record Console ($18,500) is a bench-made modern record player that pays homage to the all-in-one console hi-fis of the '50s, but bests them with an incredibly clean, modern look. Features include solid American Walnut construction, a metal base, two 6.5-inch full-range speakers, a second, hidden amplifier and subwoofer, built-in Wi-Fi for streaming music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod, or computer, and a hand-built tube amplifier and turntable, which are set into patinated steel plates to lend the appropriate sense of style to the proceedings.
