Speakers have come a long way since those big ugly black boxes -- we're no longer limited to squares. I like the mod spheres of Orb Audio's Classic Two Stereo Speaker and the futuristic eye shape of Bang & Olufsen's BeoLab 4000. Both are small in size but big in sound, plus they come in a variety of colours. LEFT Classic Two Stereo Speaker in Metallic Black Gloss (also available in Pearl White Gloss, Mettalum Hand-Polished Steel, Metallum Hand-Antiqued Copper and Metallum Hand-Antiqued Bronze). Price: $698 US per speaker system (includes two speakers and a subwoofer). Available at: Orb Audio. RIGHT BeoLab 4000 in red (also available in black, white, silver, dark grey, yellow and blue). Price: $2,800 per pair. Available at: Bang & Olufsen.
