Ultimate Chicago Gift Guide: Audio Aficionado

Eating local is all the rage. Why not shop local too?

Check back here every day for a classically Chicagoan take on the holiday gift guide. Here, you’ll find either a sophisticated or fun holiday gift item made by a Chicagoan, produced by Chicagoans, inspired by Chicagoans or sold exclusively in Chicago.

FOR THE AUDIO AFICIONADO

It’s no secret that Transistor is one of the city’s coolest electronic shops and art galleries. They sell a ton of cool stuff there, but for someone looking for the next big thing in audio, check out Stellé Audio: Pillar. It’s a Bluetooth speaker, with speakerphone capabilities, that sounds as good as it looks and is a stylish selection for both home and office. Ringing in for $299, it’s a fun device for the audio aficionado and comes in a few of the more popular modern colors, including brushed aluminum and pewter.
