Gramophone Stand for iPhone and iPad

Restoration Hardware (which we featured in the past for having some cool stuff) has taken the old school gramophone horn and matched it to work with either an iPad or iPhone by mounting both on exquisite wood. A neat, if expensive gift, but the purist looking for real stereo sound may want to look at either the Hendekagram Horn Amplifier, or perhaps a real stereo.

In the late 1800s, Thomas Edison introduced the phonograph, and just like that, life had a soundtrack. Our Gramophone borrowed the iconic speaker horn from those early machines to amplify sound with the power of pure physics. Simply set your iPad® in the solid wood dock, and the metal horn will boost its volume by three to four times, with no need for electricity. Just don't tell Mr. Edison.
