The limited "Designer Prime" hand crafted by our local leather worker in Cliffwood New Jersey. The Designer Prime is a unique life style table with the performance of a reference sound! There will only be a handful made and will be a limited run.


2 years ago, we started creating leather wrapped turntables for Master Dynamic.  This opened the door for possibilities for craftsmanship leather working.  While we don’t want to fully embrace this as a company and want to stick to the core and CONSISTENT product line, we had a customer request a leather Prime.  Last year we made 1 sample and received very positive feedback.  We commissioned our leather worker to make 15 more of these products.  5 in Brown and 10 in black leather.  The “Designer Prime” is a limited run and are handcrafted by a Master Leather worker.  This is not a standard table and there is no say that we will ever make this table again.
