Vinyl made its comeback some time ago, but the record player has yet to catch up. Until now. The Symbol Record Console ($TBA) is a bench-made modern record player that pays homage to the all-in-one console hi-fis of the '50s, but bests them with an incredibly clean, modern look. Features include solid American Walnut construction, a metal base, two 6.5-inch full-range speakers, a second, hidden amplifier and subwoofer, built-in Wi-Fi for streaming music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod, or computer, and a hand-built tube amplifier and turntable, which are set into patinated steel plates to lend the appropriate sense of style to the proceedings.
