Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone allows you to stream nostalgia

Gramovox: ‘Gramovox is a consumer electronics company, started in 2013, that reimagines vintage A/V equipment into functional contemporary art. Our debut product is the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone. Its bold design and vintage sound are inspired by 1920s horn speakers. Its form and function are a marriage of vintage and modern aesthetics—producing a timeless piece that allows you to stream nostalgia.’

‘Our S-curve horn is a 3:4 scale reproduction of the 1920s radio horn speakers. It is acoustically-optimized to brilliantly amplify music generated from the wood base. Master metal fabricators skillfully craft the horns using the same manufacturing methods used in the 1920s. The cone component is spun on a lathe and the neck is stamped out of sheets of steel. Afterward, these parts are hand-welded together, polished and powder-coated black.’

‘Our horn is complemented by a sleek, minimalist wood base. Its straight lines juxtaposed with the curves of the horn produce a compelling aesthetic. Master wood craftsmen hand-select the most aesthetically pleasing wood boards from the lumber yards. Afterward, the inner cavity is CNC’d for our horn bushing, speaker and electronics. Lastly, it’s sanded and finished with a satin lacquer clear-coat. We sourced and developed audio electronics that are acoustically optimized for the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone. We sourced an audio driver and developed a custom printed circuit board (PCB) with a Bluetooth 4.0 module.’
