The Quelle Simonetta cocktail-cabinet is truly a design gem of the 1960s. In addition to the functionality of a typical phono music-furniture, this icon integrates a wonderfully upholstered cocktail compartment. Simonetta’s front section is adorned with a wooden and a glass door, which can be moved against each other. The doors are decorated with a golden flower in the middle part. In addition, the design of the Simonetta was adorned with beautiful brass strips on the outer edges. The entire piece of furniture stands on four legs which are finished with shiny brass caps. This piece was originally sold by the Quelle Versandhaus (Germany). It was therefore actually a product for the small budget. In order to turn the built-in technology into a modern HiFi system, a number of technical modifications had to be made. Among other things, the loudspeaker installed in the base plate, pointing downwards to the floor, was removed, relocated to the front and replaced by a high fidelity one. For this purpose, the turntable was moved upwards and a brass loudspeaker grille was installed, which fits seamlessly into the design of the Simonetta. The original turntable was replaced by a better one from Dual and the tube technology of the radio/amplifier section, as well as its tone control network, were modified accordingly to ensure a perfect vintage sound experience. Of course, modern audio sources (e.g. mobile phone or tablet) can also be connected to the Simonetta via an integrated Bluetooth interface. To improve the sound in the lower frequency range, the piece was combined with a compact, active subwoofer. The originally integrated lighting has also been replaced by modern LED technology. Therefore the lighting- color and intensity of the cocktail compartment can be continuously adjusted using a remote control. Of course, the turntable is also discreetly illuminated in warm white light, which automatically switches on and off with the radio. Restoring a Simonetta is an extremely complex undertaking, but the unique result was well worth the effort. This cocktail cabinet has been transformed by our experts into a unique piece that is unparalleled anywhere in the world.
