Pump up the volume with the Megaphone unique unpowered amplifier

Most amplifier docks for the iPhone and iPod touch that we have seen recently are powered. Italian design firm en&is is endeavoring to revise that trend with its new innovation of a unique unpowered amplifier that is shaped like a large, swooping ceramic horn. Well, factually speaking, this is an antique design concept for amplification used by our forefathers too, but the firm has made an attempt to re-employ the same concept with its latest innovation.The amplifier looks beautiful standing in an upright position on the hand-crafted wood stand and all you have to do is place your device at the top of the dock to hear some spunky music.


But the only looming issue is the price range of $540 and $680 for the black & white and gold version respectively, which seems more than our monthly electricity bill. (You’d probably consider using a powered amplifier instead) But if you are looking at it as a possible gift option, then it definitely suits the rank.
