Cool Hunting Video: Symbol Audio

Elegant furniture masks a complete kit to fill a room with sound

Presented by The Macallan

We recently took the drive up from NYC into the beautiful Hudson Valley to check out fledgling audio brand Symbol Audio. Born from Blake Tovin’s years as a furniture designer, Symbol’s goal is to create elegant pieces for the home that also deliver a high quality listening experience. Using a variety of sourced American hardwoods and top of the line audio components, Symbol seamlessly marries a modern design aesthetic with a crisp, rich and big sound. We spent the day at the Symbol studio to learn about the brand’s ethos and watch them assemble a special edition of their newest product—the Stereo Console—that we commissioned using Spanish oak, the same wood that’s used in the sherry casks that age The Macallan Rare Cask.
