Awesome Porcelain Speakers Are Too Classy for My DeskS

This 2.0 speaker set (the toaster-looking piece is a volume control, not a subwoofer) may not be the most powerful set at 10W per channel, but they promise excellent conduction (and style) due to the unusual construction of ceramic-wrapped cork.

Made by Joey Roth, the 4-inch drivers are packed in a stylish and unusual cone-like design made of porcelain, cork, and maple wood. They're not being mass-produced, which is probably to be expected, and can be pre-ordered starting in September from the the manufacturer's page. Don't expect them to come cheap—we wouldn't be surprised to see a pricetag nearing $500. [Joey Roth via Crunchgear]
