LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/-- Leading home furnishings destination Crate and Barrel introduces The Listening Room, featuring exclusive furniture and accessories, cutting edge audio equipment and a curated collection of iconic vinyl recordings through the brand's new partnership with Capitol Records. Celebrating music as it was meant to be heard, The Listening Room is the perfect setting to enjoy the Capitol Records 75th Anniversary Collection, a limited release of 75 remastered vinyl recordings. The Listening Room collection will be offered in U.S. stores and online starting this September.
"We believe in the power of music to create connections, shape celebrations and enhance homes," said Doug Diemoz, Chief Executive Officer of Crate and Barrel. "Music moves people. At Crate, we wanted to create a space for long-time collectors and those new to vinyl to kick back, relax and enjoy some of the best music of the past 75 years."
Ideal for listening and home entertaining, collection highlights include U-Turn Audio's Orbit Plus Turntable and Audioengine A2+ Speakers, Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless Headphones, vinyl storage solutions, richly textured arm chairs and rugs, and unique decorative accessories. Prices range from $19.95 to $1799.00. Spanning decades and genres, the Capitol Records 75th Anniversary Collection draws from the label's storied archive and features remastered vinyl recordings from noted artists ranging from Miles Davis, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra and The Beatles to Beck, Katy Perry and Sam Smith.
"My first record was The Beatles' "Abbey Road." Nothing beats the authenticity of hearing it again on vinyl, as it was originally intended, for what feels like the first time," concluded Diemoz.
The Listening Room at Crate and Barrel speaks to the entertainer, the musician, the collector and the designer, building a space within the home that takes on its own identity.
The collection was unveiled last week at a cocktail party held in Capitol Studios' legendary Studio A in the iconic Capitol Tower.
