While letting their gorgeous stand speakers be the centrepiece of a living room would be a point of pride for any audiophile, sometimes, bulky audio equipment just doesn’t fit into the aesthetics of a minimalist, Scandinavian-chic interior. Enter the Standard One, a gorgeous piece of wooden furniture that hides a hi-fidelity audio system from Wrensilva.
While you custom build a cabinet for your equipment, the Standard One has been engineered to cleverly conceal all its contents: a fully decoupled belt-driven turntable, a pair of Wrensilva C80M 8-inch two-way speakers boasting the brand’s solid state pre-amp and 300WPC of output power. Connectivity’s also a breeze. Besides the vinyl player, the system also has the Sonos high fidelity WiFi mesh streaming integrated; RCA and 3.5mm ports; and bluetooth connectivity with extended range so you can play your music from almost anywhere in the house.
The console also comes with a quiet-run fan for cooling console electronics and devices, which can be easily disabled for a totally noiseless listening environment. Serious listeners will also be happy to know that the speaker compartments have braced and acoustically dampened, while movable components are all high-quality — so there’ll be minimal interference to your listening experience from the cabinet itself.
While the console already contains everything you need for a great listening experience, there’s also extra space for other devices, or even just storage. Everything comes packaged neatly in a sleek, solid wooden body in your choice of North American walnut or rift white oak, which rests on polished aluminium legs that can be adjusted for levelling. This is one piece of furniture we won’t be resting coffee cups on any time soon.
