Audiowood makes wooden turntables and stereo gear, but with a twist. They also make other things out of wood, like iPhone docks, AV furniture, and sometimes lamps and clocks.
They started making custom turntables over 6 years ago, and they’ve been riding the waves of burlwood turntable mania ever since. Audiowood designs have graced the pages of over 20 major international magazines and are featured in dozens of design, audiophile, and tech. blogs. Captain Kirk spins our Bachelor Turntable in Paramount Pictures’ Star Trek: Into Darkness, and they are happy about collaborations with SHFT.com and Bushmills on various advertising and web projects.
All of their products are sustainably produced, by hand, in the US, using domestic and European components. In addition to making their own things, Audiowood is also a retailer for some other brands of quality European and US-made audio gear, including Rega, Music Hall Turntables, Grado, Bellari, High Resolution Technologies, Red Dragon Audio, and SME S2 Tonearms.
Barky is a precision turntable that features a high-quality Rega parts kit, glass platter, RB303 arm and Rega Elys2 cartridge. Solid ash round is finished with polyurethane and paste wax, and has adjustable solid-brass spike feet.
Custom turntables are their specialty, and are available in almost any design imaginable, from $900 up. In addition to custom made parts, their custom turntables frequently feature quality parts made by European and US manufacturers like Rega, Origin Live, SME, Groovetracer, Grado, Phoenix Engineering, and Music Hall. Turnaround time for custom turntables is usually less than one month.
