Gramophone iPhone and iPad Speakers by Restoration Hardware


Restoration Hardware’s Gramophone docks for the iPhone and iPad take Thomas Edison’s phonograph invention from the late 1800s and blend it with modern day elegance. The iconic speaker horn from those early machines amplified sound with the power of pure physics, essentially taking the sounds from a small source and stretching it. Simply set your iPhone or iPad in the solid wood dock, and the metal horn will boost its volume by three to four times, with zero need for electricity. Though this isn’t the first horn speaker we’ve seen on the market, it’s definitely the sleekest and with two subtle color options in the mix as well, we think it’s one that will be a great addition to any upcoming remodeling plans.
