The 'Alpha' speaker is funkiest of all

It combines snail-like with a signature spike stand.

What do you get when you mix a Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus (left) with the lovable Scandyna Minipod (center)? The Symbio Alpha (right), of course. It combines the snail-like contours of the former with the signature spike stand of the latter, winning hands-down both in form and aesthetics. It also comes in striking black and yellow, crafted using laminated composite baffle and solid aluminum materials.

Looking beyond its funky design, it has a ported two-way configuration that delivers a pretty good 40-25Khz frequency response. This pretty much covers the extreme ends of the spectrum, though it doesn't hurt to throw in a dedicated subwoofer. Speaking of which, you can pair the Alpha with the EggO, an egg-shaped (what else?) passive subwoofer, for added oomph.

And if you want a 5.1 home theater setup, Symbio has that covered too. Just add another Alpha pair and the matching Beta center speakers, and you're all set.
