Sound Design Made in Italy
Each radiofonografo is a unique piece of craftsmanship that respects a controlled production process of the highest precision and is completely Made in Italy.
The buttons, potentiometers and shells of the main body are manufactured using numerically controlled milling machines, while the pedestal is produced using a sand-casting and moulding process. Every part of the radiofonografo is hand-varnished with the utmost precision. Every aspect of the product is the work of the most highly-skilled craftsmen, who are supervised by our sound professionals: the sanding of the wooden panels, the assembly of the different components, the finish of the pedestal and the application of the silk-screen prints are all processes through which traditional Italian craftsmanship makes each radiofonografo unique.

Precision: Every radiofonografo is a unique handwork, but at its origin there is a cutting edge manufacturing process, with buttons and chassis made by CNC milling machines, a stand melted in a single piece from a sand mold worked completely by hand and made up of 5 successive processes.
Craftsmanship: The capable hands of our artisans turn the precision machineries semifinished products into truly unique products. Wood panels sanding, components assembly, stand finishing and silk screen printing are all processes allowing the italian craftsmanship tradition to make each radiofonografo unique.

Much loved by David Bowie, who kept a special version of it in his home, the radiofonografo was born from Achille Castiglioni’s personal conviction that “Objects must keep you company”. Wherever it is located in the house the radiofonografo adds personality, grabbing the attention and establishing a reciprocal relationship between object and user. Assembled from the highest quality materials and components and the product of expert craftsmanship, the re-edition of the rr126 radiofonografo is Brionvega’s homage to the world’s most famous sound design.

The loudspeakers are detachable and can be configured for even more engaging stereophonic listening with maximum fidelity.
The Brionvega radiofonografo is available in white, red and orange as well as a limited edition version in Canaletto walnut.
