New Designs from Atocha
In the picture above, taken by the intrepid Ariel Bitran, Jenn is standing beside her Open-Close Cabinet, a design that eagerly lends itself to the listening party: Besides ample room for LPs in the four pull-out drawers, additional LPs (heavy-rotation selections, perhaps, or recent purchases) can be lined up and exposed for easy access; meanwhile, a pull-out shelf provides support for a laptop, iPad, or curious cat. The Open-Close Cabinet also saves room for your gear: Seen here, a vintage McIntosh amp rests within a central, ventilated compartment, while a new VPI Traveler turntable sits atop.
Not quite visible in the photo is Atocha’s new Record Stand, which Jenn describes as “the cool younger brother to the [original] Record Cabinet,” first seen at the 2011 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. The Record Stand, which resembles the classic racks found in the best vintage vinyl shops, is meant to be Atocha’s gateway drug, with a price of around $1000. (You can get a better look at the Record Stand over at AudioStream.)
Most Atocha cabinets can be made to order, with your preferred wood, hardware, and configuration. For more info, visit Atocha Design.
