sculpted from ash hardwood, the chinon ‘legato CH-PS840’ iPhone speaker dock increases volume by up to six decibels. the refined resonance chamber channels sound waves through the horn and is designed to create a background ambiance or a relaxed listening atmosphere. the device is passive – so does not use electricity – what this does is generate a stable and sonic performance that improves low and mid-high regions.

more specifically, the ‘CH-PS840’ benefits sound from 150 to 8500 hertz which explains why numerous designs were proposed for the horn’s form. chinon experimented with the length, the mouth to drive unit ratio, the compression and the flare of the mouth in order to produce the ideal, calming climate music volume. the speaker is fitted with a 1.5 meter USB connector cable that is able to recharge the compatible iphone models (4, 4s, 5, 5s and 5c) thanks to an attachable base. the hardwood electronic dock features graceful curves that highlight the swirling wood grains, both of which reflect the unwinding music that it plays.
