Retro wooden speaker uses memory cards, features rechargeable battery


Truth be told, I actually like the looks of this old-timey speaker very much. And it’d go perfectly with my newfangled “digital” music collection. It’s only $29, too, which may or may not mean that the actual sound quality is poor to quite poor.

The “USB Retro Wooden Speaker + MP3 Player Cube” plays music files off of USB drives as well as SD and MMC memory cards. It also features a 3.5mm input for use with standalone MP3 players. It’s powered via USB and, as a bonus, has an internal lithium ion rechargeable battery so you can use it in the middle of a very large room that, let’s say, only has computers in the corners and no USB cord is long enough to stretch to the corners so you have to rely on battery power. Something like that.

There’s a remote control, too, so you could walk to one of the faraway corners of the big room and still control the music.
