Light speakers from Yamaha

Yamaha collaborated with lighting company Koizumi to release the YST001 [JP], a set of speakers with built-in lighting. Koizumi developed 3 Halogen lights (with 25W power each), the brightness of which can be adjusted via a remote control.

The speakers are 47 inches high and come in black. They feature a frequency response of 70Hz-35,000Hz, an impedance of 6Ω and a maximum output of 120W.

The companies say they wanted to cross sound and light with the YST001 (“Koizumi-Yamaha Versus Project”). Placed next to a TV set, the light coming from the speakers is supposed to “soften” the TV picture during night time.

The light speaker set is already available in Japan and costs $1,240.
