The MA770 Wireless Speaker, made of a concrete composite, is 35 pounds heavy and 16 x 20 x 10 inches — roughly the size of a desktop computer monitor. It was made in collaboration with renowned architect Sir David Adjaye, the speaker’s primary material is a proprietary concrete composite.

The concrete increases dampening and reduces sonic resonance, creating a more pure sound and also reducing adjacent vibration. Concrete’s dampening properties are, Master & Dynamic claims, five times better than wood and ten times better than plastic. The speaker has Google Chromecast built in and is compatible with Bluetooth; it also has direct audio and optical ports, giving you plenty of interface options, whether you prefer your smartphone or a dedicated hi-fi device.

The speaker is priced at $1,800 and will have a limited production run.
