The Caruso is the best digital music player we have ever heard or seen in years. Without a shadow of a doubt. 

Made In Italy by Paolo Cappello at Miniforms, this Cool Home Stereo Gramophone Player makes listening to music feel like it should be a ritual - settling down with soft lighting, your favourite tunes and letting the sweet sounds take over.

Not only are the Caruso's one of the most beautiful pieces on the planet, the sound is amazing. Ridiculously amazing. Music has always been, and continues to be, a huge part of my life so sound quality is of huge importance to me. 

What Miniforms have achieved with this speaker is far beyond anything I've seen before. The Caruso practically invites you to take a break - to find again the magic to hear and see a retro mid-century design object that plays high quality stereo music. It stands on the edge of irony, a little futuristic, a little retro, managing to combine hi-tech design to modern day vintage living for a multi-sensory decoration.

This mid-century looking HI-FI audio stereo system is multi-functional, as is evident at your very first glance. With its retro looking speaker, it pays homage to the old vintage gramophones that were common between the 19th and 20th century - the age of Caruso, the world known Italian tenor from whom it derives its name. However, it is equipped with a modern 4.0 Bluetooth connection, that is the state of the art in the field. Available in a variety of finishes and colours to fit any environment, the Caruso is an investment piece that swiftly becomes impossible to regret. 

The colour finishes are made from solid Walnut and painted and walnut lacquered white, black or grey. Two wood finishes available in natural Oak or Walnut. Limited Edition Gold Gramophone available in Real plated GOLD.

The Caruso comes with LED lighting inside the cabinet.

Please note this listing is with various options in wood finishes, see drop down box for the Gold plated option with vintage oak. Any questions please contact us.

Beautiful in every sense of the word!

After months of deliberating, we finally bit the bullet and ordered the Caruso.
The only downfall was not buying it sooner. Oh my goodness what a thing of beauty. The cabinet itself is superbly made - we went for the blue colour with gold speaker. You can really see the craftsmanship that goes into them.
Then you turn the speaker on. The description about sound on Smithers is excellent but even that doesn’t do it justice. Clear as a bell, the purest speaker we’ve ever had.
I don’t mind admitting to being a bit of a geek when it comes to gadgets and I’m very fussy with sound systems so please take my review as gospel. The Caruso is absolutely superb in every single way.
Smithers were equally brilliant with the purchase - great advice about colours, excellent at keeping us up to date and a delivery service that was second to none.
I rarely write reviews (and if I do it tends to be negative) but felt utterly compelled to spread the joy over this fantastic home stereo. Don’t delay like we did, I promise you will not regret it!!!
