Classic Home Entertainment
At the turn of the century gramophones were promoted as home entertainment centers. Family and friends bonded
over music, songs, speeches and radio dramas. The Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone maintains this spirit of
communal bonding and recaptures that warmth with a vintage meets modern aesthetic.
Stream Nostalgia
Users can pair any Bluetooth-enabled device to the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone and wirelessly stream songs through the product. As sound waves propagate through the horn, you experience an organically mid-range, vintage sound. And, measuring just 18” in height, the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone fits seamlessly into many home entertainment setups.
Skilled Crafsmanship
The Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone is proudly designed and crafted with parts made in America. The steel horns
are shaped by some of the world’s fnest metalsmith. The wood bases are produced by woodcrafsmen from Ohio.
Our electronics are made in Michigan. “There’s a feeling of pride and satisfaction in the attention to detail that comes
in each Bluetooth Gramophone,” says Gramovox CEO Pavan Bapu. “I can sleep at night knowing that each and every one of our products is designed and crafted to the highest standards of quality.
