1937 Philips AM Radio Hacked into an iPhone Dock

 

Oyvind from Build Electronic Circuits sent in his latest project. It’s a 1937 Philips AM Radio Hacked into an iPhone Dock, the project is basically using the nice old housing since all of the internals were discarded. He is using a module that the iPhone plugs into to grab the audio line out from the phone which is fed into the a small amp. A newer speaker was installed since the original one was not working well anymore. He build a custom display module which is controlled by an Arduino and displays the source selected and volume of the system. The result looks much better than a plastic docking box from the store and from what I can tell from the video it also sounds great.
