Hi-fi Coffins: for audiophiles who want to take their music to their grave

And we thought we’ve seen it all. Serious audiophiles who fret about getting inferior sound at wherever they’re headed to in their afterlife now have one less thing to worry about post-death. They can thank the Swedish for inventing the world’s first customized afterlife hifi sound system in a coffin. Dubbed the Catacombo Sound System, the coffin is not only tricked out with a kickass hi-fi system, but also thoughtfully hooked up to Spotify, so friends and family can update the playlist when the dead guy’s fingers get too stiff for any touchscreen action. It even comes with a 7-inch LCD display that shows what song it’s playing so the dead guy can discover names of rad new bands while he lays dead. Hope it doesn’t disturb the neighbours.
