If you’ve been flipping through your wad of $100 bills without a clue about how to spend it, then Gresso has got some fantastic news for you. The Russian company, known for its ultra luxurious cell phones made of African Blackwood and gold, is stepping into the MP3 market. With a starting price of just 40 of those $100s, the Symphonia player features laser-cut controls etched into a patented scratch-resistant surface to protect the entire gigabyte’s worth of MP3, WMA, OGG, and ASF tracks you can store inside the 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 0.4″ marvel of craftsmanship. It’s even got an FM tuner, which alone is worth its weight in gold.
And we mean that literally. All four Symphonia models, constructed of the same 200-year-old African Blackwood used on the phones, feature 18-karat white or pink gold trim. Our sources are conflicting on this, but we think the players may also be offered without the Blackwood, which would help to explain the top-end price of $6500.
