Let’s face it, records are back. I mean, who doesn’t like combing through them to find that song that brings you back to that time when…(insert distinct memory here.)? We know that many of you have record players and shelves full of records, and now Symbol Audio has the consoles and storage units that suit the modern man who not only appreciates music, but good design as well.

Blake Tovin founded Symbol Audio with that particular consumer in mind. He had been designing furniture for more than 20 years when he decided to fuse his interest in music and design. And it’s for customers both young and old. “Our customer is more a designphile than audiophile.” says Tovin. “We sell to younger people who are beginning to collect records as well as older customers who are interested in dusting off their old records in either case they are looking for a distinctive audio product that’s an alternative to impersonal mass produced consumer electronics currently available on the market.”

Not sure which piece to get for your home? Tovin recommends the Stereo Console Table. “Our Stereo Console Table is scaled around the dimensions of a typical console table allowing it to be placed anywhere a table would fit,” he says. “This is an especially convenient size for apartments and is designed to accommodate a turntable and a wireless receiver such as an Apple airport or Sonos and be able to switch between them with a remote control. With 2 available channels you can also choose to connect one to a TV and make the Stereo Console your single entertainment source, switching between music and television.The immersive sound is delivered through matched 4” titanium full range drivers and an 8″ down-firing subwoofer all powered by an integrated class D amplifier.”

The 11 best Tom Cruise movies, ranked
Tom Cruise is still providing great movies almost four decades into his career
Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick

The term "movie star" is thrown around a little loosely these days. Actors appear in one big blockbuster, and suddenly they're thrust into celebrity status for the foreseeable future. There are very few performers who have stood the test of time and created hits for decades. Sometimes, though, it works out. Tom Cruise fits this definition as well as any actor who's ever lived.

Cruise puts his all into his performances and movies, doing a majority of the stunts himself without a body double and funding his films through his own production company. While he may not have the Academy Awards of Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino, he's been arguably the defining actor of the action genre since the mid-1980s.
