You’ve taken great care to trick out your home with things that appeal to you. But when it comes to the devices that share the music you’ve amassed on your iPhone, you’ve likely had to make aesthetic compromises, settling for one black, plastic-y box after another. Not anymore.
The Get Up Stand Up speaker from House of Marley — made from walnut and birch wood — is not only easy on the eyes but on the ears as well, with speakers big enough to deliver real sound to an entire room. The wired connection to your phone means none of the connection hassles or clipped audio you so often get from Bluetooth. An auxiliary port lets you connect a phone or music device that doesn’t use an Apple connector, and a remote control lets you control the music from wherever you’re sitting.
The best news: This beauty is on sale right now at House of Marley for $249, $50 off its list price.
