A family story
The concept was born between father and son, or rather between grandfather and grandson, when Arthur, the founder of A.bsolument, was offered his grandfather's vintage set. Charmed by this set full of memories and history, Arthur, with the help of his father, decided to modify it so that he could plug in his phone and enjoy his own music.
A few notes, familiar music, a memory, the click. A click for Arthur who fell in love with this connected object. This is how the concept of modernising vintage sets was born in 2013. Born from a passion for music, new technologies and vintage, Arthur set himself the challenge of modernising the vintage radios of our grandparents.
The company A.bsolument was officially created in 2015 in order to extend this original offer, full of charm and nostalgia.
Witnesses to our history
The charm of the old lies in its authenticity, so we take care to keep as many original elements as possible. We modernise all our vintage sets with a lot of love, care and attention. In order to bring a breath of fresh air and a touch of technology to this decades old product, we change the speaker and install a 50W analogue amplifier to give it a modern dynamic sound. At the end of our technical inspection we install a bluetooth system in each station allowing seamless connectivity!
All spare parts found in vintage radios and not used are donated to associations of vintage radio enthusiasts.
Our added value
- A Bluetooth 5.0 system to freely listen to all your favourite music from your phone, computer or tablet on your vintage A.bsolument radio!
- A jack input to connect your turntable, CD player or other compatible accessories!
- An RCA socket to connect a potential subwoofer!
- A backlighting of the dial allowing you to travel in time with each music.
