In the ’50s and ’60s, record player consoles were common in a lot of households. They were the epitome of bachelor pad cool: the ultimate living room showpiece; but they were also known for their warm sound and sonic range. Good booze and smooth, warm vinyl bliss; It’s true what they say: some things just don’t go out of style. Reviving that not describable feeling, husband and wife team Luno have created the EGB2, a beautiful new record player console with the whiskey drinker, as well as the vinyl lover, in the mind.
LUNO’s flagship model, EGB2, is a timely update of the classic record consoles of the 50’s and 60’s. The beautiful Mid Century inspired design, boutique minimalist turntable, pull out MiniBar and custom gold rimmed whiskey glasses effectively evoke the luxurious style and modernist design of the Mad Men era. Each EGB2 is crafted by finely skilled artisans in the USA using American Walnut and would undoubtedly be a conversation piece based on it’s stylish design alone.
However, looks are not all that the EGB2 has to offer. Look under the hood and you’ll find all the trappings of a powerful sounding music system. Each EGB2 is hand-wired and couldn’t be easier to use. Plug in the power cord, lift the tonearm, drop it on to your favorite record and enjoy the warm, rich sound of the EGB2’s custom designed two way speaker system. Need more bass? Not a problem. Built into the EGB2 is a separate 100w enclosed subwoofer and a three band tone control. Want to stream music from your digital devices?
Just toggle the selector switch and the EGB2 can now be controlled from any Apple or Airplay compatible device in the house. Need somewhere to store your records? The EGB2 has storage space for up to 150 records built in. Want a drink while listening to your records? The EGB2 features a pull out minibar complete with gold-rimmed Whiskey glasses and storage space for four average size liquor or wine bottles. The EGB2 retails for $9,950.
