Turntable Console

This turntable console rocks a mid-century vibe with its clean lines and low, sleek profile. Inside, there’s space for components as well as your vinyl collection.

The saying “what’s old is new again” was never truer than when it comes to vinyl records. Having watched this method of musical entertainment get slowly buried over the last five decades by 8-tracks, cassettes, Walkmans, CDs, and streaming made me think that they were gone for good. But apparently, vinyl records have brushed off all attacks as “merely a flesh wound.” Such resiliency deserves to be celebrated — and the console you see here is worthy of paying homage to the vinyl renaissance. The case is built from no-nonsense, 1""-thick solid mahogany panels that are mitered at the corners with splines for a strong joint. You can’t see these details because of the thick edging that is glued to the front. The edging has a large roundover that winks at the mid-century design tastes of the late 40s and 50s. A bin that stores your albums is securely hinged to the case, giving you access to your collection when you need it, then hiding it away otherwise. To complete the look and utility of the console, the same hinge system is used on the cover of the turntable. Behind those attractive speaker covers you’ll find ample room for your personal set.
