Plenty of streaming speakers claim to be works of art. The Soundwall literally is: It’s a wall-hanging print that doubles as a wall-hanging wireless speaker, letting you mount your favorite record and your favorite rock poster. You can pick from a collection of stock designs, upload your own art, or even buy it as a blank canvas and get creative. And this ain’t no tiny, tinny speaker. The entire surface of the print brings the noise via a very precise process of reverberation, and its size (it ranges from a poster-sized 24’’x36'' to a wall-covering 40''x60'') gives it the physical means to produce loft-filling licks. Under the art is a tiny computer that lets the speaker sync with iOS, Android, and Sonos devices. [$949; soundwall.co]
