Globe-Trotter has teamed up with The Analogue Foundation – a collaboration founded by Audio- Technica, Grammy award-winning producer and studio engineer Russell Elevado and the international art and genre-bending music group Soundwalk Collective – to create what is being described as ‘the ultimate Listening Station.’
The station will be unveiled on 1 February, 2018 at Spiritland music café and bar at London’s King’s Cross.
Traditional luggage and leather goods company Globe-Trotter and The Analogue Foundation are both advocates of analogue, “placing value on craftsmanship and design, and according due importance to the object itself in recognition of its power to evoke memories and form a personal attachment to it."
The Globe-Trotter X Analogue Foundation Listening Station allows visitors to play records selected by The Analogue Foundation on a customised turntable furnished with a selection of Audio-Technica phono cartridges, including the AT-ART9 magnetic core moving coil and AT33Sa Shibata stylus, with a choice of hi-fidelity listening provided by Audio-Technica’s ATH-ADX5000, ATH-A2000Z, ATH-W1000Z and ATH-W5000 headphones.
Visitors to the Listening Station can play their favourite vinyl whilst enjoying a drink from a built-in cocktail drawer complete with a set of tumblers found at the bottom of the Listening Station.
The Globe-Trotter X Analogue Foundation Listening Station will be on display in Globe-Trotter’s UK flagship store at 35 Albemarle Street, London from Monday 19 February, 2018 in the bespoke lounge.
