The Retro is a three speaker tabletop docking system for any iPod that is designed in the style of a retro table radio from the 50s. It’s constructed of real wood (most of the iPod speakers out there are made of plastic) and features a brushed aluminum backlit green volume control knob that gives it a sleek elegance.
The Specktone Retro features a 4-inch subwoofer and 28 watts of power – more than enough to fill a good sized room with sound. It also includes a 1/8-inch mini plug auxiliary input on the back for jacking in other audio sources. I have been jamming out to my Specktone (in black, thank you) over the weekend in preparation for the Pearl Jam tour and have been more than impressed with the sound quality.
The Specktone costs considerably less than other iPod speaker systems at only US$149 and has a lot more style. My only gripe is that I wish it came with a remote control so that I can pump up the rockin’ songs (“Big Wave”) and skip the slow, sucky ones (“Come Back”). I guess that there’s always room for improvement.
The Specktone Retro is available now in black, green and white for US$149 and comes with two free iPod skins for the video and nano.
