Sonance Kayak speaker sails in smoothly to deliver acoustic pleasures
Though the folks at Sonance have christened this speaker as the Kayak, I don’t think the form actually justifies its name. Maybe if you force yourself to think of it as a small tapering boat, you can find some resemblance, but overall it looks like two cones facing each other and balancing a jewel-shaped thingie in between. Being the latest addition to the NACSound range, the Sonance Kayak speaker is designed to be suspended horizontally between two opposing walls or pillars, or vertically between floor and ceiling. Now this gives you the freedom to position them such as to suit your décor without hindrance.
Introducing the concept of a single body with stereophonic emission, Kayak manages to do so with flair, thanks to the jewel-shaped acoustic reflector in the center. It is computer-designed so that the resulting sound field gives the best possible stereo image.
It is capable of doling out 60W with a sensitivity of about 86dB but for a whopping price of $2,900.
