The Abbey Road Studios console which Pink Floyd used to record 'The Dark Side of the Moon' on has been sold for a record-breaking £1.4 million.
Roger Waters, Dave Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright used the famous London studio for the 1973 album which stayed in the US charts for more than 14 years.
And the 'EMI TG12345 MK IV', described as "the greatest console ever constructed, was at the heart of the seminal ten-track album".
The 1971 console was housed in Studio 2 where it was also used by a number of other world renowned artists including Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Kate Bush.
It was deemed out of date in 1983 and sold to Mike Hedges, a producer at Abbey Road, who used it in his own personal recording studio.
Mr Hedges entered the console into Bonhams' 'Rock and Roll Through the Lens' auction in New York where it was sold for a staggering £1,434,231.
Prior to the sale, Bonhams were tight-lipped on the console's estimate, only saying they expected it to sell for a significant six-figure sum.
They have now revealed the estimate was £550,000 - with the final price a world record for a piece of technology sold at auction, beating the £718,000 paid for the Apple 1 computer in 2014.
