What are the odds to find a person who enjoy a glass of wine while listening to their favorite vinyls? If you are one of them, well, then the Penfolds Grange 70th Anniversary Record Player Console should be right up your alley.
Celebrating Penfolds Grange’s 70th anniversary, Penfolds is offering a limited edition Grange 70th Anniversary Record Player Console. That’s right. A renowned winemaker wants to sell you, wine aficionados, a turntable.
Not just any turntable, mind you. The Grange 70th Anniversary Record Player Console is a homage to the “all-in-one” console design from the 1950s – the same decade as Grange was first created.
Each console is crafted by a single craftsman who spent no less than 100 hours crafting it in the tradition of the fine bench-made furniture by SYMBOL Audio.
The console incorporates a vinyl record storage cabinet and a hidden wine compartment with a rare ‘White Capsule’ release Grange magnum duo from the 2010 and 2017 vintage, alongside a suite of luxury accessories that include a hand blown Grange Decanter crafted by leading Australian glass artist and designer, Nick Mount, plus 8 Riedel Extreme Shiraz Glasses stored in an inverted wine glass storage.
Meanwhile, on the audio end, it boasts a custom Penfolds turntable mat, an audiophile-grade belt-driven turntable, audiophile-grade Bluetooth receiver, custom hand-built amplifier, a pair of 6.5-inch full-range speakers with customizable speaker grill lacquer finish, and a 300-watt 8” subwoofer.
The Penfolds Grange 70th Anniversary Record Player Console has a limited run of just 7 units worldwide, each with a numbered commemorative plaque, and commands a cool AU$95,000 (around US$70,130).
