The flagship of the Symbol audio line, the Modern Record Console pays homage to “all in one” console hifi’s of the 1950s, an IDEA whose time, we believe, has come around again. Each cabinet is individually crafted in the tradition of Fine bench-made furniture from solid American Walnut. The sculptural metal base is constructed from 1/4” plate stainless steel and hand finished. As a piece of furniture the Modern Record Console will undoubtedly become a focal point of any interior.
The design and execution are only half the story. Lift the lid and expose the hand built tube amplifier and turntable set into patinated stainless steel plates and begin to discover a one of a kind music console that integrates traditional “old school” electronics with modern wireless capabilities. The electronics are custom designed and built for Symbol Audio by experienced audio engineers and include a hand-wired tube amplifier that delivers a warm pure Signal to the two 6.5” full range speakers. Tucked out of view into the steel base is a second dedicated amplifier and subwoofer designed to extend the low end frequency and provide added richness to the sound. The built-in turntable has a carbon fiber tonearm fitted with a Sumiko Blue Point #2 cartridge for playing vinyl. For the convenience of streaming digital music just switch the selector from turntable to WiFi and stream from any digital source through the built-in wireless router and control music selections from your iPhone, iPod, iPad or computer. It’s truly the best of both worlds all designed seamlessly into a bespoke piece of Fine furniture.
Our console comes standard in solid North American black walnut with your choice of lacquered speaker fronts in Glacier White, Slate Grey, or Jet Black. The sculptural metal base is constructed from 1/4” plate stainless steel and hand finished.
