Vintage radios remade as music docking stations: Newman Radios

Newman radio

Love a retro look but firmly attached to the joys of your iPod. Newman Radios combines the best of both worlds, converting cool original radios into 21st-century friendly music docking stations. 

It's all done in a very object friendly way too – basically the headphone socket on the vintage radio is converted into an auxiliary, input socket so iPod and phones and laptop can be used with the included jack cable. The speakers and volume control and the like are all the originals. 

The stock is very covertable – though if you see something you love, you'll need to snap it up quickly as turnover is fast. Love the Bush radio above, and there's a couple of converted Roberts original currently in stock too. Or for a completely different look, check out the retro ghetto blaster below.

Prices start at £75 for the Bush Radio, and shipping is from Bath.
