Any of you out there familiar with the Muji CD player? It is/was a cute little box which you’d hang on the wall, press a CD onto and enjoy the tinny sound of tiny speakers spitting high-grade digital files into your ears.
Now you can — like any civilized person — ditch the spinning disk and just enjoy the music. Muji has now launched a Bluetooth speaker that looks a lot like the old CD box.
The $95 speaker hangs on the wall and plugs into mains power using a bottom-exiting cord. This cord also toggles power — yank it to switch the machine on or off.
You’ll also find an FM radio inside, and the usual complement of play/pause, skip and volume switches are arrayed along the top edge.
It looks like the perfect kitchen speaker. Or it would, if my kitchen weren’t already littered with Bluetooth speakers which I’m testing for review purposes.
