You don’t really hear much about gramophones anymore, but contrary to what you might think the field is still alive even though it’s almost 2016. Take, for example, Caruso, a wireless gramophone from Newblack that combines cutting edge tech with the old-school audio horn design. Gramophones clearly aren’t just for Miss Havisham’s dilapidated old house anymore.
Caruso, named for the legendary opera singer, has a ceramic horn that amplifies sounds just like the ones on gramophones a hundred years ago were designed to, but this item’s 50W Class D amplifier and Bluetooth 4.0 receiver means that the sounds coming out of the horn are far from restricted to ancient LPs. Each one is crafted by hand in Italy, with a variety of different customization choices available.
You can check out Caruso at Newblack’s official site right here. Prices start at $2,950 and go up from there depending on which options you decide to opt for.
