Restoration Hardware Gramophone iPhone & iPad Speaker
The upscale hardware and home furnishings retailer Restoration Hardware has taken their design aesthetic way back to the 19th century for their new Apple-compatible speaker. Using the iconic speaker horn of a phonograph, which was the first sound playing device invented by Thomas Edison in late 1800s, Restoration Hardware’s Gramophone speaker comes in three different styles to accommodate your iPhone or iPad, and in two different colors, dry oak and walnut. The dock is made of solid wood and the metal horn boosts the volume without the need for electricity, so no wires are required. You can pick up your Gramophone speaker from $159 to $239 at Restoration Hardware’s stores or online.
