Though a rise in CD sales lead to turntables becoming a thing of the past, this retro stereo marries an old school aesthetic with modern day features.

The resurgence of vinyl has taken place in the last few years, with nostalgic adults and youth alike revisiting the era that brought about its popularity. The HiFI Console, designed and built by Department Chicago, is minimalist with dark wood and cream colors. Equipped with a Bluetooth-enabled app, the retro stereo can play audio from TVs, turntables and smartphones.

The designers intend to keep the cost of the retro stereo as low as possible while improving its sound quality. Perfect for the musically inclined of any age, the HiFi Console is a nostalgic yet modern piece that could be the focal point of any room.
