Yamaha Design “Synapses” TSX
Desktop audio products that let you sit back and listen to your iPod.
At your bedside, in the kitchen, in the dining room, in the living room... A presence that just fits in anywhere. A design that people from all walks of life, of all generations, want at their side.
The simple form of a box in a compact design that is easy to use, enclosing a diverse array of functions such as an iPod dock, a clock, a radio, and a CD player.
The design focuses not on functionality or advanced sound technology, but on complimenting the everyday lives of the people who own it, offering superior quality in a neutral form that can be treasured for years.
A counter-like top akin to a side-table allow people to set small objects down without worry. The simple feel of natural wood offering warmth and a natural, relaxing intimacy to the design.
Simple operations that don’t require the user to read a manual. The operational logic and the shape and positioning of the controls, have been carefully tested to ensure that a range of functions can be mastered with ease.
