Founded in 2011, the team at Shinola took Detroit by storm with their now iconic timepiece collection. In recent years they’ve entered the high-end audio market… with equally impactful results.

Shinola’s Runwell Turntable is as much a piece of art as it is a music player. Shinola’s expertise in manufacturing and craftsmanship are abundantly present in Runwell’s build quality and overall aesthetic. They consulted with legendary turntable manufacturers VPI, and combined an ambitious north star of build quality with their own eye-catching design sensibilities.

Weighing a desirably hefty 45 pounds, the Runwell comes with a phono pre-amp built in. It also includes a high quality Ortofon cartridge, a complimentary record, and a hand-written note from Shinola.

Shinola also offers a pair of bookshelf speakers that pair nicely with the Runwell Turntable. Produced with Shinola’s partners at Barefoot Sound, these speakers are compatible with both Bluetooth and USB-connected sources.

We are great admirers of Shinola’s design sensibilities, and are excited to showcase their craftsmanship to the New York City area.

David started his career in the audio business selling new and used hi-fi at Audio Exchange, a west village haven for music lovers to share stories and listen to good music.  While there, David recognized his passion for entrepreneurship. Soon after his start as a salesman, he became the store’s general manager, successfully running the day-to-day operations and increasing the business’s profitability.  After a few years leading Audio Exchange, he decided to venture out on his own.  What resulted was Stereo Exchange: a store that became a New York institution and a destination for all lovers of good music.

Ann has been side by side with David since Stereo Exchange’s beginning.  In fact, it was her initial financial investment that helped Stereo Exchange get off the ground.  Since then, she has been an invaluable part of the organization, contributing significantly to branding, human resources, and customer service.  Without her acute eye, instinct for good people, and insistence on excellence, Stereo Exchange would not have enjoyed the longevity it has.
