Kickstarter does have some interesting projects that pop up from time to time, and the +KNOB Bluetooth speaker is yet another idea that needs $15,000 – having picked up a third of the amount required already, and with 31 more days to go, I would say that this has a very high chance of happening. Targeting iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android owners, it basically wants to bring high quality audio to the masses without having to break the bank.
According to Raul China, the founder of DesignHuman Colectiv, a design studio based in Miami, “It is born out of necessity and frustration. Digital music does not have to equate to horrible sound.” Sure, audio quality for digital formats aren’t exactly as warm as what you would get via a vinyl player, but they have certainly improved a long way since MP3s came into existence. Some might say that using Bluetooth to connect to a device will further disparage its quality, but then again, I think casual listeners won’t mind. Expect the +KNOB Bluetooth speaker to cost $100 a pop if you are interested.
