So you’ve decided to plunk down some coin for a new laptop. Chances are, you’re planning on listening to some audio, playing the occasional movie or delivering presentations to a small group of people. In these cases, there are a few laptops / computers that come with adequate speakers built-in, however the vast majority (Dare I say all?) are simply that: adequate. Enter the world of computer accessories, and specifically speaker systems that are either bluetooth connectible or connected via wires. I’ve tested several kinds of speakers, and those that are connected via cable provide better sound quality than their wireless counterparts. Specifically, in my experience, the Cubik speaker by Palo Alto Audio provides not only a high-end, contemporary look, but they also provide great sound with nice, deep bass.
Design The Cubik speaker was designed by award winning designer Young-Se Kim. With his goal of thinking outside the box, he took the box itself and turned it on the side to create something different. The look of the Cubik speaker is something to appreciate – in a world with horizontal lines all over your desk, having these speakers stand out and back it up with superior a
Tech Specsudio is certainly something to enjoy.

shock at the price tag…but take my word for it, the sound and look of these speakers is worth it! I have been thoroughly impressed by these speakers, I really like their look and also appreciate the feel as well. When I was unboxing the speakers, I couldn’t help but think that they were a superior build quality over competing products.
