NW3 speakers

Be it a bird call reverberating across a landscape or the roar of a waterfall, it can be difficult to replicate the beguiling acoustics of nature – simply because Mother Nature holds secrets we are yet to uncover. Although we may not be able to recreate it, we can at least turn to nature to assist us. Artisan carpenters hailing from the small town of Schaebisch Gmuend in Germany use a type of local natural wood – known to enhance acoustics – to create neue Werkstatt’s NW3 speakers. With not a skerrick of plastic in sight, the speakers instead use finely perforated powder-coated front guards to emit their powerful sound.
