Areaware produces the Radio Dock iPhone 4 / 4S & 5 out of beech wood with a handle out of brass. The backside of the RadioDock has an opening for the charging cable. The RadioDock decently reinforces the sound of the iPhone, since the corpus of beech wood has exceptional sound qualities: The rough grain offers a bit more depth to the beech wood, making the sound a bit more powerful.
The areaware Radio Dock for iPhone hasn’t got any electronics on its own, limiting the effect of the sound improvement. However, the RadioDock is a nostalgic piece of design, which gives a stylish frame to modern technique. For those of you who wish it a little more authentic: There is a suitable “Public Radio App” in the iTunes-Store, to receive classic radio music and to show the display design with a nostalgic background.
