McIntosh Partners with Symbol Audio for American Made Custom Hi-Fi Cabinets
Symbol Audio, a highly-acclaimed American manufacturer of solid wood home audio furniture, has been selected by McIntosh to produce audio cabinets specifically tailored for McIntosh components.
The bespoke cabinets are available in various configurations depending on the number of components in your system, catering for both 2-channel and home theatre systems.
The cabinets feature hidden integrated castors to allow the cabinet to glide easily when the adjustable feet are raised. The solid wood adjustable shelves provide a firm foundation for components which are fixed with vibration damped 6mm stainless steel pins. Shelf heights are also adjustable on the standard 32mm system. There's also integrated cable management tie bars on either side of the back.
Symbol Audio constructs the cabinets from solid North American sustainable hardwoods and finish them with a clear, durable, low sheen topcoat to protect the surface and enhance the natural beauty of the wood.
Finally, the crowning jewel is the illuminated glass front plate, which comes to life with the rest of the system displaying the iconic illuminated McIntosh logo, offset by silver trim. This integrates with McIntosh's Power Control feature.
Premium finishes include Jet Black on Ash, Natural Walnut, and Wenge on Walnut.
The McIntosh Audio Cabinet Program will be available in Australia sometime in 2022. Australian pricing is not yet confirmed; however, prices start at $900 in the U.S., depending on the configuration.
