fancy listening to quality sound reproduction while whipping up a delicious meal? if Dutch firm D’Andrea & Evers Design has their way, you can probably do so in near future. introducing the MaestroKitchen 100 from Harman Kardon, a concept that puts high end audio into your kitchen cabinet. the MaestroKitchen 100 features iOS device connectivity, speakers built-in into the cabinet doors and the subwoofer concealed behind skirting boards at the base of the cabinet.
when the cabinet doors are closed, there is not obvious sigh that it is in fact a sound system built into it except for a subtle black glass control panel above the oven that has a small color LCD screen for users to see what’s playing and the Harmon Kardon brand emblazoned on one side. you will be forgiven for believing that Harmon Kardon does oven too. which is obviously not the case here. brilliant idea but definitely not suited for Asia countries where the smog from cooking of Asia cuisine could potentially shorten your high-end audio lifespan unless salad and pasta are all that you cook.
