Concrete Speaker



A speaker that won't move around no matter how loud you turn up the bass.

What took so long?

From the website:



Designed in a collaboration between celebrated architect Sir David Adjaye and New York City-based audio brand Master & Dynamic, the MA770 wireless speaker offers a sculptural take on audio design.

The geometric shapes give the speaker a distinctive character, while the smooth concrete cements its status as an outstanding piece of modern design.

Made with a proprietary concrete composite, the speaker provides a clearer sound as well as increased dampening and reduced resonance.

MA770 comes with a 1.5" titanium tweeter and dual 4" woven Kevlar long throw woofers which reproduce sound with clarity and rich detail.


Features and Details:

• 36.4 lbs.

• 18" x 14.5" x 9.5"

• Toslink optical cable

• 3.5mm auxiliary analog

• Removable stainless steel grille

• Detachable 2M region-specific power cable

• 100 watts Class D amplification x 3 discrete channels

• Wireless connectivity: Dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 with BLE

• Built-in Chromecast with enabled streaming applications including: Spotify; Tidal; Pandora; Soundcloud; Deezer




Perfect, you say... if only it came in black.









Black: $1,800.

I'd love to see if Gray Cat could ignore the monstrous output of this singular speaker and doze in front of it like she does now with my Braven and Harmon Kardon setups.

What is it? An electro magnetic concrete salt cellar. Turn it on it's side, feed a resonant waveform to it, DSP sold separately, tune it to the frequency and amplitude desired fir appropriate dispersion of the edible and wand said edible under the precipitation of nacl to the desired effect.

Did I get it right?
