The Parrot Zikmu by Starck (not affiliated with Stark Enterprises) is apparently for the serious audiophile as they seem to be 1600 of whatever your local dollar equivalent is. You are probably asking yourself why you would possibly want to spend that much money on a pair of WiFi/Bluetooth speakers with a built in iThing/A2DP smartphone dock and that is perfectly understandable. The design of the speakers allows for 360o sound, which results in the lack of a single sweet spot for these speakers. Instead no matter where in a room you are in relation to the speakers, you will be in the sweet spot. t-break describes them as being worth every penny, so head over to check them out even if you'd never spend that amount of money on a speaker system.
"The Parrot Zikmu, or Parrot by Starck as they’re more commonly referred to as, are a pair of wireless stereo loudspeakers that you can connect to via Bluetooth and WiFi. Designed to be used primarily for your iPhone and iPods, the Zikmu can be connected to any Bluetooth capable smartphone using A2DP, as well as Macs and PCs through WiFi. Don’t get scared by the price yet, let me tell you why they’re actually worth it."
