There aren't a whole lot of ways to describe the look of these speakers other than to say they look like foghorns mounted on top of some old school speaker boxes. The $27,270+ price tag on these foghorn-style speakers, however, suggests that they are something more.

The duo G2, duo omega G2, and the uno G2 were a collaborative effort between Teac Corporation and German manufacturer Avantgarde Accoustics, which may very well explain their postmodern appearance.

Implications - Despite their retro style, these new, unique speakers are state of the art and have the price tags to match. Each of the companies releasing these speakers have strived to achieve the balance between vintage style and modern technology that is so often seen in decorative technology of today.
