We’re really big fans of devices that successfully blend art and usability such as the Room One Surface. Hence, when we saw the Moonraker Sound System, we knew this has to make its way to our site.

At first look, Moonraker seems like a Sputnik satellite with some of its parts carved out. It is made to look like a white orb sitting on three wooden legs that resemble Sputnik’s antennae. You’re given three color options for this—black walnut, reclaimed teak, and white ash.

But more than its stylish and creative exterior, the Moonraker is a fully functional sound system and a very good one at that. It houses both a woofer and a tweeter, which are bi-amplified, to make sure you get an almost full range of frequency and hear it clearly and distinctly.

It also has a built-in Class D amplifier with a total output of 150 W and an active type crossover.

What’s more, the Moonraker speakers are enclosed in a polymer shell which is carefully designed to reduce diffraction and resonance.

It also features Bluetooth connectivity with the aptX codec and AAC to promote lossless audio quality. For analog music coming from a turntable or a CD player, there are two analog inputs just for that.
