Detroit based jack-of-all-trades Shinola has been the purveyor of classic American-made cool for years now, so it only makes sense that they’ve come out with their very own Shinola Bookshelf Speakers.
One thing is for sure – these things have quite the pedigree. They are a follow up to Shinola’s well received Runwell turntable, and the second overall audio release from the brand since they brought on ex-Audeze CEO Alex Rosson to head up their new audio department. Like everything the ever expanding rust-belt revivalists come up with, the speakers are as stunning as they are simple – set in a beautiful American Oak composite that comes in a natural wood, or stained black. As one would expect from any project Rosson has been involved with, they feature top notch sound quality that is as adept at articulating highs as it is emitting powerful, tactile lows. You can set them on your own shelf for $1,500. [Purchase]
