La Boite Concept's LD 130 raises the audio game of the original LD 120, the hi-fi sound system specifically designed for laptops and other wireless devices and housed in a luxurious replica of a French school desk. Now the proportions of the desk have been slightly enlarged and the output has been upsized as well, to 130 hard-charging watts.
La Boite Concept founders Timothée and Guillaume Cagniard's "enfant" starts with the built-in DAC sound card that translates digital audio into higher quality analogue fed to the 3 discrete amps. A pair of stereo speakers at the back of the desk plus four more drivers and a subwoofer at the front pump out glorious tones. Designed to be placed against a wall, sound from the rear disperses and "bounces" to create wide stereo fidelity, even when standing or sitting close to the unit.
With Bluetooth capability and auxiliary jacks for both wireless and standard devices, the LD 130 has it all, including a built-in laptop charger. Desk finishes include piano lacquer and wood options with a fine leather desktop. Here's one kind of "homework" one would hope to never outgrow.
