Symbol Audio Tabletop HiFi: Back to the Future
January 24th, 2013
When it comes to speakers, retro designs can look pretty great. Check out the Symbol Audio Tabletop HiFi, a tabletop audio system that wouldn’t look out of place in a pad from the 1960s. I’m sure that Don Draper would approve.
Each one of these luxury speakers is handmade from wood, and would be welcome in any modern or retro pad. While it may have vintage looks, the audio isn’t from the past. Inside are two 4-inch full-range drivers with titanium cones, and a 5.25-inch subwoofer, powered by a Class D amplifier, rated at 8-watts-per-channel for the full-ranges and 15.5-watts for the sub.
Unfortunately, the Tabletop HiFi doesn’t have wireless support built in – it’s only got an 1/8″ stereo mini input jack. That means you’ll need an Airport Express or other wireless-to-analog converter if you want to stream tunes from your mobile devices or computer.
The speaker comes in a number of different colors and finishes, and you can mix-and-match speaker grille and cabinet finishes. If you like the way the Tabletop HiFi looks, you’ll have to save up, because they sell for $1,800(USD).
