Using the console
The HiFi Console is very easy to use, simply plug in the power cord and flip the switch to "on". You’re able to then connect wirelessly via Bluetooth or through one of the audio-in connections.
Design & Audio
Here at Department, design is our main focus and we made the HiFi Console for the music listener as well as the furniture enthusiast. Our inspirations stem from the simplicity of furniture design in the 1950’s and 60s. Personalize your console by selecting the finish / color combinations that best suit your space.
Department is teaming up with an experienced audio engineer to help develop the sound and function of the HiFi Console. Working closely with an audio specialist ensures the best quality sound at an affordable price.
Details & Specs:
For stability and damping the HiFi Console is made from select hardwood solids with thin layers of MDF, offering excellent sound reproduction. Genuine Walnut and Maple veneers are hand sanded and sprayed, with environmentally friendly water-based stains & topcoat for a smooth finish.

Why a Kickstarter campaign?
We will be retooling our workshop to improve our efficiency as well as be able to handle larger production schedules. The funds will also be used to upgrade the final audio system, to further improve the sound quality. As we grow we will hire on employees with woodworking experience to help with production. Creating jobs in our local area is as important to us as is the quality of our products. We are excited to be a part of the movement to bring manufacturing back to the USA. We're almost to the finish line...all we need is you!
