MA770 Wireless Speaker by David Adjaye for Master & Dynamic

MA770 is a premium wireless speaker designed by London-based designer David Adjaye for Master & Dynamic. Sir David Adjaye OBE, recognized as a leading architect of his generation, was born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents and his influences range from contemporary art, music and science to African art forms and the civic life of cities.

The speaker is cast in a unique geometric form using proprietary concrete composite that lends itself to both the aesthetic of the speaker as well as its acoustic superiority. The concrete increases dampening, reduces resonance, and creates an overall purer sound. The dampening properties are so high that the speaker can play at full volume without causing a record to skip or the table and floor to vibrate.

The speaker is outfitted with dual 4″ woven Kevlar long throw woofers, a 1.5″ titanium tweeter and diamond-cut anodized aluminum controls. An elegant, magnetically attached steel grille is removable for those that prefer the look of the exposed components and hand-finished concrete. As stated by Adjaye, “This speaker is not about the traditional idea of making boxes, but about a directional form. I became fascinated with the idea of using triangles to break down the mass of the box, and to see if we could dissolve the sense of volume through sculptural detail. We created a new geometry for this speaker. A new geometry of sound.”
