Inside the Riff Speaker

Detroit Audio Lab™ products are built to last, to deliver outstanding sound, and to survive evolving technology. Our batteries are replaceable, and we offer multiple connection options to protect your investment. All electronics are designed with sustainability as the end goal and are compliant with the European Union’s WEEE and RoHS Directives.


Each speaker is constructed of solid wood, salvaged from homes and businesses located in Detroit. The wood is kiln dried to have a consistent moisture content and stability.


The wood is individually selected and undergoes dozens of finishing steps during construction and assembly. We build everything with sustainability in mind. Our finishes are either Tung oil or shellac, our gaskets are made of cork, and our solder is lead-free.
