Min7 is a handmade wooden speaker

The Min7 portable speaker is different to most. It’s made of wood, but instead of plumping for one type of wood, its makers have used wood splicing technology.

This means they used some teak, oak and walnut, of the kind you’d use for furniture. By using a bit of each instead of just one type of wood, it’s hoped the product will be more environmentally friendly, as it won’t deplete one type of wood.

Anyway, how does it sound? It’s a 150-watt, 2.1 system, with a 1-inch silk dome tweeter, 4-inch paper cone woofer, and 5.25-inch subwoofer. According to the makers, the micro-horn tweeters with pointed spikes at the bottom “improve the overall sound performance”, though there’s no word exactly how.

Its insides are also split into three chambers, reducing interference between the sub and the main speaker, making the sound crisp and clear.

Again, this is according to the manufacturers. Unfortunately there’s no way of finding out until we can test it for ourselves.

You can stream to the speaker over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, or connect to it using USB, optical, coaxial, and an analogue audio cable.

You can also add it to your hi-fi set-up, or connect it to your TV to act as a home cinema system.

It’s raised over $72,000, surpassing its funding goal, and still has 58 days to go. It will ship in July, costing $459 (£320) on an early bird.
