Modern Record Console
a new classic
The flagship of the Symbol Audio line, the Modern Record Console pays homage to “all-in-one” console hifi’s of the 1950’s, an idea whose time, we believe, has come around again.
Starting at $23,995
A New Classic
Analog electronics paired with digital technology and the best craftsmanship, this is the new standard. The Modern Record Console will undoubtedly become a focal point of any interior.
A distinctive element, the custom hand built vacuum tube amplifier in the Modern Record Console allows a fully analog signal path with the rich musical sound of tubes that is still sought after by audiophiles and recording artists alike.
Two 6.5″ full range drivers deliver a perfect point source, phase, and time accurate signal throughout their operating range thanks to their lack of a crossover. The result: an extremely clear and uncolored sound that brings the musicians into your listening room.
Concealed in the natural steel pedestal is a 300 watt powered 8″ subwoofer with dedicated gain, phase, and frequency controls. The hidden subwoofer offers deep bass response to compliment the warm, rich sound from the full range speakers.
A unique three phase suspension system entirely isolates the turntable from the console cabinet allowing this high-tech turntable to provide the highest fidelity signal possible from its high output moving coil cartridge mounted to a carbon fiber tonearm.
Stream high-fidelity digital music to the Modern Record Console from a variety of wireless technologies and control music selections from your mobile device.
A testament to exacting quality
Every component of the Modern Record Console is painstakingly crafted to the highest standards using the best mix of time honored traditions and modern technologies. The result speaks for itself.
The Modern Record Console is constructed from specially selected 14ft American Black Walnut boards allowing the grain to fully wrap around the console uninterrupted. Start to finish, each cabinet is painstakingly crafted by a single craftsman using time honored techniques totaling 100 hours of work.
Each piece of hardware is machined from solid brass and carefully patinated by hand before being installed.
The base is crafted from precision cut 1/4″ stainless steel plates, TIG welded, and finished with a hand applied patinated coating.
