iVictrola iPhone/iPod Touch Amplifier: Blast From the Past

by Lambert Varias

Designed by Matt Richmond, the iVictrola’s design and functionality harkens back to the olden days. Way way back to the olden days, when there were no electronics. It acoustically amplifies the sound coming from an iPhone or iPod Touch – no need for a plug or batteries.

The sound passes through a hole in the walnut “dock” and up to the vintage Magnavox horn.

Obviously the amplification won’t be as powerful or as clean as what you’ll get from powered speakers, such as the similarly designed Little Horn. At least the iVictrola requires zero wires or electricity. Plus the horn is gorgeous.

Unfortunately the iVictrola isn’t available right now, but do keep an eye out for it at Design Without Reach’s limited-edition online store. At least you still have time to save up $400 (USD) for this lovely amplifier.

    The only song I’d want to hear through this thing is They Might Be Giant’s I Can Hear You – that would be perfect.
