Premium audio brand Master & Dynamic takes on wireless likes of Sonos and Naim with the MA770-- 100W all-home sound system with a casing built out of proprietary concrete composite. Yes, you read that right!

MA770 According to the company, concrete is actually a great material for audio systems, since it has "a rich, sculptural quality, with a robust, tactile heft that is delicately balanced with gentle, sculptural curves." It also offers "added durability" since, at the end of the day, it remains concrete, while dampening properties are superior to those of wood and plastic.

Inside the striking Sir David Adjaye-designed casing are a 100W Class-D amplifier powering dual 4-inch woven kevlar long-throw woofers and a 1.5-inch titanium tweeter.
