The Lyric Speaker Canvas, like its predecessor the Lyric Speaker, displays lyrics to whatever music you’re listening to on its front display.

I don’t usually do unboxings for various reasons (time being one of them) but with a speaker like Cotodama’s Lyric Speaker Canvas, it had to be done! We’ve reviewed many speakers here at Techaeris over the years but nothing like this. So just what makes it so special? The Lyric Speaker Canvas, like its predecessor the Lyric Speaker, displays lyrics to whatever music you’re listening to on its front display.

About the speaker

This Wi-Fi speaker is supported by both Android and iOS through Google Home and Airplay. You can stream music from Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, and Apple Music to the speaker. 

Roughly 19″ wide, 15 3/4″ high, and 4 3/4″ deep, the Lyric Speaker Canvas is a bit hefty at around 11 1/2 pounds. Black and silver in colour, the speaker is constructed from ABS, acrylic resin, and steel. Like its predecessor, it isn’t cheap and will retail for around $1700 USD. While on the pricey side, it is much cheaper than the $4500 Lyric Speaker making it a bit more accessible for purchase.

First impressions

The Lyric Speaker Canvas is a pretty solidly built speaker. It’ll definitely look great on a bookshelf or other shelf both when in use and not in use. Setup wasn’t too difficult using Google Home but wasn’t without a minor glitch which a restart of the app fixed. Overall, the speaker has pretty decent sound during our limited testing so far. I was definitely impressed by the number of songs that have lyrics in Cotodama’s lyric database. I’m definitely looking forward to putting the speaker through its paces over the next couple weeks.

 Be sure to check back soon for our full review. If you’re already sold, you can sign up on b8ta’s website (an authorized retailer) if you’re in the U.S. to be notified as to when this $1700USD speaker is available.
