LP 160 Table by La Boite Concept
The LP was the brainchild of an idea by Timothée Cagniard, co-founder of the company, and three years of development carried out by La Boite concept’s R&D laboratory in aquitaine (Basque country in France). The aim was to create a very high quality loudspeaker which allows the optimal use of both traditional and more modern audio sources, without needing any particular set-up or visible cables.
How to use
The LP is an innovative interpretation of the classical and separated Hi-Fi system elements. its all-in-one design means it can contain an optimal, made to measure selection of top of the range loudspeakers, converters and amplifiers. In accordance with traditional Hi-Fi fundamentals, the LP’s analogue amplifier delivers a warm, natural sound and also integrates the latest digital sound treatment, so it is truly part of the era of dematerialized Hi-Fi music. Its digital audio file converter (32 bits Atoll DAC), precisely delivers dynamic high quality of sound, whatever the source being used (wireless devices, tv box, computers or turntables). Its integrated storage space allows it to store the most high performance sources and wireless receivers on the market rationally and discreetly. one power socket is all you need to make the whole audio system work.
The LP is a very high quality, consistent system that has been developed without any compromises. All of LP’s components have been developed specifically for it, in order to optimize each setting and combination of acoustics and electronics. This high quality playback is possible thanks to close collaboration between La Boite concept’s laboratory in the south west of France, specialized in loudspeaker development (a family tradition for 3 generations), and atoll, a company from Normandy (North West) which is specialized in top quality audio systems. 3 years of research was necessary to create a design that reproduces all frequencies in a dynamic and linear way. Its exclusive system means that, despite its compact size, it offers natural listening conditions; very close to those obtained when listening to an orchestra live. Optimizing the whole signal processing chain, via pre-amplification, converters, amplification, and filtering, to the loudspeakers offers unprecedented performance. LP clears the tones of extreme frequencies and gives a pure dynamic to sound recordings so you are always as close as possible to the original sound. The two loudspeakers situated at the back in phase with those at the front have their own internal reflectors to give them incomparable sound stability. La Boite concept’s international patented wide sound 2.0 offers total immersion and enlarged stereo sound thanks to its sound reflexion, no matter where the LP 160 is in the room and whatever its use.
The LP was designed by Timothée Cagniard, co-founder of La Boite concept, and by Yvon Maurel, La Boite technical director. Timothée input all his family’s knowledge of traditional Hi-Fi and his vision of how it is used today in order to anticipate the needs of tomorrow. For his part, Yvon Maurel, an electro-acoustic Phd, has been a researcher in the field for 15 years and is well known for having created many prestigious loudspeakers.
