Ipod iphone charging station with speaker from vintage test equipment
This is Ernie. Ernie is a one of a kind docking station for your ipod/iphone constructed from a vintage EICO Signal Tracer from the 1950's. To create Ernie, we started by removing all the old electronics and replacing them with a nice little 15 watt amplifier and new Pyle 5.25" 3 way speaker. The sound is great, perfect for the average room. Outside, Ernie was a mess. We resprayed the case brilliant hammered silver and polished the faceplate to bring back his original shine. Ernie has had a tough life up until now and he has a few dings and spots to prove it. We think it shows he has character. To dress him up a little more, we installed a new LED bulb behind the original jeweled glass indicator light, as well as a blue LED inside the cabinet that both illuminate when the dock is turned on. It looks great in low light. For docking your device, a universal docking tray was installed that works with all Ipod classics, nanos and iphones through the 4s model. (note, Ernie can be converted to work with the new iphone 5 jack for an additional $50). Your device charges whether your speaker is on or off. A standard 110v chord exits the back and powers the whole unit. We think Ernie is one cool cat..grab this one before it gets away.
