Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. It served as our inspiration when combining the technology for this Private Collection music console.

Let’s start with the Barzilay cabinet.  In the late 1940s, Ira S. Barzilay founded Barzilay Furniture Manufacturing Co., a company known for their stereo equipment cabinets and mid-century modern units. They weren’t an off-the-shelf brand, and many of their products were shipped in pieces leaving the final assembly to the end user. This flexibility was an instant hit among audiophiles, who wished to have a heavy intervention in designing their audio systems. The company closed in 1986 because Ira wished to retire. Barlizay cabinets are now rare items that sell for top dollar. 

Next, let’s pause to admire the McIntosh amp. Since 1949, every audio component that came out of the Binghamton, NY factory equals pure quality. It has always stood out from the crowd by being premium, exclusively handcrafted in the US, and expensive. A true case of looks meets brains, where the timeless design pairs exquisitely with the top-notch performance.  
Fun story: In 1982 McIntosh Labs and none other than Steve Jobs eventually reached a deal that allowed the latter to use the name for its new personal computer, provided he changed the spelling to Macintosh. 

Then, the Wharfedale speakers. The company, founded in 1932, is intrinsically connected to the development and innovation of hi-fi. To the point that a lot of the components included in modern speakers were invented by the British company. It’s a synonym of tradition which translates into quality and reliability.


Finally, the Pro-Ject turntable. Having arrived later (in 1991) to the party of audiophile equipment manufacturers, the company founded by Heinz Lichtenegger in Austria, Pro-Ject Audio Systems quickly stepped up to the plate of incredible quality and unique design and elegance.
