Those who find old-school black box speakers a little too, well, square should check out this chic new wireless beauty from Libratone, a Danish company with U.S. headquarters right here in Framingham. The Italian-wool-clad “Loop,” offered in a full spectrum of vibrant hues, is no mere fashion plate. Loaded with state-of-the-art specs that audiophiles freak for—a thumping 4-inch woofer, dual-ribbon tweeters, 120 watts of amp, patented FullRoom technology that disperses sound in all directions—it’s a feast for the ears as well.
