Yes its A

Correct idiom: 'so...that'

'it' is referring to the recording system because the oval office already 'exists'

It's A.

Idiom + Diction

- Idiom 'so X that Y' is used properly.
- Usage of commas makes sentence clear.

Well to answer your question, I would say that we are emphasizing on 'A recording system' by placing it in the beginning of the sentence so 'it' should refer to 'recording system'.
