If you want minimum desk space and maximum sound, then the La Boite LD120 Hi-Fi Soundsystem Laptop Desk ($1,680) will suit you well. Developed by Paris-based La Boite Concept and CC LAB, this 22.5″ w x 20.5″ d laptop desk is packed with enough audio power to crank up your jams while you crank out some work. It has a built-in DAC (digital to analogue converter) sound card that translates the digital audio of the laptop via USB into a much higher quality analogue sound card. The signal is fed to two 25 watts and one 70 watt amp, and then to seven speakers developed exclusively for La Boite: two tweeters, two full range, two mid and one woofer. The desk also has a built-in sensor that reverts the system to standby when the speakers haven’t been used for 15 minutes. Just try not to keep the neighbors up when you are working late.
