Touted to deliver a sound comparable to that of a live-playing orchestra, the LP 160 Hi-Fi Loudspeaker System ($Inquire) is a classy all-in-one setup that can be hooked to any audio device. Its wooden cabinet also doubles as a working desk, but we doubt anyone would use this baby for anything else besides listening pleasure.
Made by French company La Boite Concept, the LP 160 is the result of 3 years of research and tweaking details to perfection. The high-end audio system works with both traditional (e.g., turntables) & more modern audio sources (TVs, laptops, wireless devices via Bluetooth), without needing any particular set-up or visible cables. The setup offers integrated storage space for your music players, along with an array of discreetly-placed audio inputs.
All of LP 160’s components have been developed specifically for it, in order to optimize acoustics and provide an immersive stereo listening experience. Its spec sheet includes 2 double stage amplifiers (80 Watts each) & 8 exclusive La Boite concept speakers: 2 double cell tweeters, 2 x mid-range cones, 2 woofers, and 2 dual chamber subwoofers. Available in black lacquered piano-like plywood or solid oak tree, both with solid aluminium control panels.
