Moore & Giles x Crosley Commonwealth C10 Turntable

Like Bowie and Mercury, Lennon and McCartney, and Eddie Van Halen and Michael Jackson have masterfully illustrated, often collaboration – especially in regards to creating music – brings out the absolute best in both parties involved. Apparently, that rings true for the delivery of music from vinyl to our ears too, as evidenced by this mashup of legendary brands Crosley and Moore & Giles.

These C10 model turntables, which are made from your choice of mahogany and black calf leather or birch and modern saddle leather (etched with a topographical map of the land between the homes of the two companies, Louisville and Lynchberg), were designed for the brands’ limited edition Commonwealth collection and are intended as a manifestation of their long-running collective innovation and craftsmanship. But they’re not just showpieces; they are intended to be used. Equipped for both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records, these tables feature an 8.6 inch tonearm with an adjustable counterweight and sapphire bearings. They also come with an easy-to-replace Ortofon OM5e phono cartridge, a low vibration synchronous motor, and shock absorbent feet for the ultimate in stability and sound quality. These record players are available for $840 a piece, but only 20 are being made of each color way, so you’d better act quickly. [Purchase]
