This gramophone uses acoustics to amplify the sound from iPhone speakers. The speakers solely uses acoustics to produce the sound, so there is no need for power. The sound is amplified by about three to four times; while this is not great for a loud party, it works well for a small group of people. The sound that is produced out of the gramophone has a slight old-timey feel, which makes it exciting to try out different songs through the speaker. I like the aesthetic of the speaker as well, there are clean lines and the wood material makes it look good in most spaces. It also grabs a lot of attention when people walk into a room, and they constantly ask what it is and how to use it.
