The Vibrary Digital LP Player takes cues from countless other wireless audio speakers and smaller soundbars, with a wide front facing speaker design, tactile button controls up top, and various sound listening modes, including spatial audio – the increasingly popular audio processing technology that allows audio engineers to precisely designate where sound is perceived to be emanating from, painting soundscapes of effects across a listener’s room. How effective this mode would prove in reality is questionable, noting the overall size of the player is modest.
