Philco Dynamic Tester turned into iPod dock

by Ally


There have been plenty of gadgets that have found new uses by having updated technology jammed inside of them.  The gadgets come from all different time frames and this one is actually created from a device that was originally released in 1946.  This Philco Dynamic Tester has found new life as an iPod speaker amp.  Despite that it’s made out of a device that’s 63 years old, it looks even better than the newer gadgets released this year.

The cabinet is a 10 watt integrated solid-state amplifier, as well as a Blaukpunkt 5 1/4” coaxial loudspeaker with a ceramic magnet.  It has an inset side panel has bass/treble controls, two 1/4” jack inputs, and left and right RCA inputs.  The iPod dock plugs into the side panel to play your music and charge your iPod.  The massive knob on the front is the one that controls the overall volume.  The handle on the top was actually updated since the creator wasn’t all that fond of the original. You can check out more of the pictures by heading here.  No such luck on getting a tutorial though.
