ENGLISH TRANSLATION: (from) The Revue of Home Theater Sound - "That is beautiful to hear".. It was under this slogan that presents itself evocatively a young company called Bouldeson. As its name clearly indicates, this is the spherical shape that caught the attention of designer Matthieu Couturier. In some ways, these are reminiscent the Grundigs of the 70s. The emphasis is placed on the custom-made (finish, appearance, sculpture) but the small two-way pictured already offers a real potential in terms of fusion and liveliness. Another feature of the brand, the manufacture of boxes, always spherical, but translucent, allowing light to shine from within, creating, in addition to an acoustic function, a light source of very friendly atmosphere and color of your choice.
