What if you don't like the sound of the violin?

Every CES witnesses something out of left field. In the case of the 2013 Show, it was the ViolinSpeaker, which uses the body of a real violin to emit frequencies above 2kHz. (A conventional 6.5" woofer is concealed in the plinth.) The ViolinSpeaker is offered at two prices: $7200/pair and $3800/pair, depending on the quality of the instrument chosen. The sound? Not as bad as I was expecting, but not very good either.

When I finally quit laughing, wiping away the tears, I thought "this is a perfect wrap to the 2013 CES". I suppose they may have intended this as just a collector's item.
