I’m not sure too many audiophiles would list heart pine from a 19th century Virginia factory as a must for great sounding speakers. However, these fantastic looking pine speaker cabinets do come from factories over 100 years old.
Heart pine was used in almost all factories at one time. It was used so much in the framework and flooring of most American factories, that it was nearly timbered to extinction. Thankfully it survived, but it can only be had from salvaging from old factories. And that’s how Beam Tower speakers came to be.
And because the wood is over 100 years old, the speakers create a unique, but high quality sound, with excellent full bass extension and superior imaging. And of course, they are just stunning.
They can be purchased at Fern & Roby for $4500.
For those looking for smaller speakers and a smaller price tag, you can buy these pine heart cube bookshelf speakers. These output superior sound as well, with a minimalist modern design.
You can purchase them at Fern & Roby as well, for $1500.
