This company retrofits hi-fi systems into high-end connected furniture. SØBEL by Digizik combines vintage and new technologies by transforming outdated radios into something more appropriate for the digital age, while also bringing back the days of having a "monolithic hi-fi console in the middle of your living room."

Each piece is customized to the specific needs of every customer with a human-focused approach to high fidelity. Even with access to music being extremely easy to come by, it is often played on devices with low sound quality, which SØBEL tries to address. The new hi-fi systems have a NAD D 7050 amplifier and B & W 685 speakers. Everything is smartphone connected, so your mobile devices function as a remote control. They also use GRUNDIG furniture for an "inimitable aesthetic."
