A cubist approach to speakers

TDK goes square route

TDK seems to be going the opposite route from Cabasse , at least in the shape of its speakers. Where the latter seems partial to spheres , the Japanese company has gone cubic with its latest design.

The "Flat Panel 2.1ch Acoustic Sound System" (we thought only TVs and shoji screens were allowed to call themselves "flat panels") does have rounded corners, though. That's apparently to reduce cabinet distortion, according to Tokyomango. It also comes in red, black, yellow and gray, but we're not sure if that's such a good thing: With those kinds of colors, it might be mistaken for a personal safe .
