Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak played a big role in the design and build of this 1986 luxury home, which – by the way – benefited from the same contractors who built Apple’s offices. The 7,500-sq.ft home is surrounded by 1.2 acres in the exclusive Los Gatos Mountains and includes six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms. Filled with light and warmth, this breathtaking home mixes post-modern style with majestic views in a unique way. The property has been re-designed and renovated just a couple of years ago, although it retains several of Steve’s most unique design touches. The main level

The Devialet Phantom is publicly praised as the most powerful compact speaker to have ever seen the light. The 3,000-watt speaker pushes out an impressive 99 decibels, which is somewhat similar to the noise you experience while riding a motorcycle.

It’s all about two hermetic woofers which allow
