If you have not heard about the Geneva Sounds speaker docks before then you are in for a treat. The model M is the middle child in the series but it does not seem to have received any less love or attention from its developers. Update!

Design, features & sound

If you are familiar with the design of the Geneva Sound range than the looks of the Model M will not be a surprise to you. Geneva Labs have stuck to the same true and tested design that has made them so iconic in the high-end speaker dock market. This is not an Ikea system (no offence to Ikea), but it can easily be seen as extension of your style and furnishing.

This bookshelf sized speaker dock oozes of build quality with its piano finish. Inside you will find separate (left + right) Hi-Fi speakers, consisting of two 1-inch tweeters, two full range 4-inch woofers, and bass ports. Each speaker is individually powered by Class D digital amplifiers.

The speakers uses the Geneva Labs patented technology for true stereo imaging. For all i know this could be marketing talk, but independent reports indicate that the sound is of high quality.

Will be back with rating when had the opportunity to listen to the system in more detail myself.
