The world`s first Bluetooth gramophone is the result of an inspiring quest: the search for genuine vintage sounds. Following a successful campaign on Kickstarter, Gramovox is currently available for purchase and is addressed to those who miss the golden rhythms of the old days: “Our bold design and vintage sound are inspired by the 1920s Magnavox R3 horn speaker. Its form and function are a marriage of vintage and modern aesthetics – producing a timeless piece that allows you to stream nostalgia“.
The product features a S-curve horn acoustically-optimized to brilliantly amplify music generated from the wood base. This contributes to a highly elegant appearance: “For our wood base prototype we selected solid, 12/4 walnut from a local lumber yard. After milling it down, we CNC’d the inner cavity for our horn hole, speaker and electronics. Lastly, we sanded and finished it with a satin lacquer clear-coat“, explained the designers. The Gramovox comes with a Bluetooth 4.0 range of over 30 feet and battery life of 15 hours, making it easily controlled from across the room.
