Change The Record iPhone Amp Puts Old Records to Good Use

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 13, 2012

Do you love your old vinyl records, but have nothing to play them on? Then check out this amplifier/dock solution for iPhones. It was actually made out of a vinyl that’s been reshaped to work as an acoustic amplifier. It’s an good way of reusing old records when you no longer play them.


It was created by British product designer Paul Cocksedge who uses a modified 12-inch vinyl record to create each acoustic speaker. It’s an interesting design, leveraging its horn-shape to amplify the sound. To make each dock, he gently heats and then molds the vinyl record, taking care not to damage its original grooves.


They can be bought in the UK from select retailers, and I also found it on theĀ Openers site in Japan, where it’s listed for 7875 yen (~$97 USD).
