We walked into the Lawrence Audio room at CES and thought the music we were hearing sounded incredibly open, natural, engaging and beautifully lifelike. We were shocked to find out that we were not listening to the $100k reference floor standing Eagle speakers but the much smaller, stand mounted Party 1’s.

We were so dazzled and delighted by the sound and design of the Lawrence Audio speakers at CES , that we took on the line, bought the show demos for ourselves and arranged with Lawrence to offer the Party 1 speakers to you at a special price – in your choice of finish.

Testimonials (on all Lawrence speakers)
The Lawrence Party 1 was awarded “Best Recommended” by Audio Art
Winner 2012 and 2011 CES Innovations Award
“Like some other speakers I have reviewed in the past what the Lawrence Audio Violins DO provide is a very enjoyable experience with a good deal of detail resolution, strong ability to handle aggressive rhythm and pace, excellent sound staging, and a very fluid midrange. At the suggested retail price of $7500 they represent a fine investment in speakers and promise a long and happy life delivering great sound over a wide range of musical styles. At the current price of $4950 they are an absolute bargain!”

“The Lawrence Audio Mandolins are wonderful loudspeakers on many levels. Their lovely craftsmanship and looks will definitely enhance any room that they’re put in… These speakers are exactly what they look like and I believe exactly what Lawrence Liao designed them to be: elegant, musical and perfect for an intimate room and intimate music. Placed in the right system and space they will reward you with a musical experience that enhances your quality of life without doing too much damage to your bank account. Highly recommended!”

“We walked into the Lawrence Audio room at 2011 CES and immediately both agreed the music we were hearing sounded incredibly open, natural, engaging and beautifully lifelike. We were shocked to find out that we were not listening to the $100k reference floor standing Eagle speakers but the much smaller, stand mounted Party 1’s. We then listened to the larger, uniquely styled Violin speaker and were even more blown away. The Lawrence speakers deliver stunningly good sound and looks, are extremely well designed using top of the line materials, and are manufactured in Taiwan to extremely high standards showing excellent fit and finish.
We have since done extensive listening in our reference systems to both the Violin and Party 1 and are even more impressed with the design, beauty and of course the sound. We believe these speakers represent one of the best values in high end audio today!”

“Lawrence Audio Party 1 Loudspeakers have completely fill our fairly large, 2 story living room with a sound so real that it makes us think the musicians are in the room. We have never been so engaged listening to music before – they are by far, the best audio investment we have ever made.”
– Jerry and Tammy, Audio Revelation customers
Party 1’s in a (very satisfied) Audio Revelation customer’ home
“I am a guitar teacher with my own music school and I also sell instruments. I bought a pair of Lawrence Audio Violins along with a whole series of amplifiers. I have heard guitar music played through friends speakers that are more expensive than Lawrence Audio speakers. Yet, Lawrence Audio speakers are the only speakers that can completely reproduce the actual sound of live guitar music. Although the Violin speakers are smaller in size the bass is deep and full. The sound coming from the tweeter, midrange, and bass is extremely balanced. Because the Violin has a ribbon tweeter, one will never tire of listening to music through this speaker. I definitely recommend these speakers to everyone.”
– Pei-Hua Yang, Guitar shop owner/music teacher
“I’m from San Francisco and I’m an architect. When my friends see my Lawrence Audio speakers, they all say that they’re beautiful, but they don’t know that they’re products of Taiwan until I mention it. I have a set of Lawrence speakers in my Arizona home and my San Francisco home. The design of the speakers combined with the sound of the speakers is what I consider great audio. I never thought that I would be able to hear such great sound from speakers made in Taiwan. This has changed my impression of the Taiwanese.”
– Jeb Allen, Architect, Audiophile
Firebird and Violin speakers
“I am a businessman and I own a trade company. Lawrence Liao designed my house and shortly after, I bought the Lawrence Audio Violin speakers. The sound of the speakers was amazing, so I bought a second set of Lawrence speakers. This time they were floor standing speakers. I enjoy the time I listen to music from these speakers very much.”
– Benjamin Wu, Business owner, Audiophile
Double Bass and Cello speakers
“My name is Daniel Pan. I own a computer software company. For the past thirty years, I have used many different kinds and brands of foreign speakers. I have not found any other speaker to completely satisfy me, except Lawrence Audio speakers. I own five sets of Lawrence speakers. I have the Double Bass, two sets of Firebirds, the Cello, and the Violin. The sound from these speakers is truly remarkable. It does resemble being at a live performance. I recommend Lawrence speakers, because Lawrence Liao is a music and art expert. He definitely has the credibility to produce these marvelous speakers.”
