Brionvega reissues the RR231 Totem

It’s an expensive but beautiful box of high fidelity sound.

Italian electronics company Brionvega has reissued the modernist RR231 Totem in all its minimalist glory. The cabinet is made from lacquered and hand-polished MDF wood and comes in at a hefty €16,000. Originally designed by Mario Bellini in 1971, the RR231 Totem is well-known for its simplicity and modularity that captured the style of designer audio equipment of the time.
