Numark just launched the N-Wave 580L, an update to its desktop speaker model that now includes lights for both the tweeter and woofer portions of each speaker. These are active, self-powered monitor speakers for desktop use and come with 5.25″ woofers. You can cycle through different colours for the lights or turn them off if you don’t want them.
While it’s entirely up to you whether or not you really need lights in your speaker set-up (we reckon the jury will definitely be out among our readers), it still is a unique way to add ambience to your home DJ studio or practice set-up. As for the sound, we’ll let you know what we think once we’ve got our hands and ears on a review pair, but expect “value” and “fun” rather than “audiophile” at this price point.
• The Numark N-Wave 580L will be available imminently 2015 for £99.
