This unique little dock for your iphone or ipod is crafted from a 1960's Fanon FW-50 wireless tube intercom. You can just imagine the Mad Men guys at their desks giving dictation on this very intercom.

When we saw it, we had to have it. It was found in non working condition and we went to work converting this unit into a one of a kind dock.

The original tube chassis was removed and modified to hold a new set of 2.5 watt speakers. Not enough to rattle the windows, but more than enough for your desk or nightstand. While we were inside, we replaced the original volume potentiometer and indicator light with a brand new pot and a cool orange LED power indicator that glows when your speakers are turned on. A new chrome toggle switch on the back shuts off the power to the speakers.

On top, we sunk a docking tray that fits your iphone or ipod classic. Your Apple device charges while docked. We've polished the original brass finish, but left it alone otherwise. The finish shows age appropriate tarnishing and pitting (from years of sitting in smokey offices and having bourbon spilled on it, we'd like to imagine). The result is a piece unlike any other you'll ever find. It displays beautifully and sounds great.

I'm going to pretend I'm calling my assistant to bring me a bourbon now.
