Default Wooden Retro Style iDevice Boombox with Airplay + Hifimediy T2 + Markaudio Alpair 7

Hi folks

I finally found some time to build another boombox for all kind of audio devices. This time I did it without a real docking station.

Click the image to open in full size.

The main components are a Hifimediy T2 amp with an Alps pot, Meanwell NES 350W and the Markaudio Alpair 7 speakers.
From a design point of view I have chosen a so called "Fantasma burl" veneer which gives a kind of crazy look. I tried to get all other comonents in black color. The size of the box is 25 cm x 25 cm x 50 cm.

I changed a couple of technical details and tried the Markaudio Alpair 7 speakers. One of the biggest changes is the abscence of a real dock connector. One factor for this is the strong rumor that Apple will introduce a smaller dock connector with the next generation of their iDevices.

This is the box in action:

WOW! What an awesome project.

Do you have more details or recommendations about how you assembled the internal workings? Schematic or just a couple of pics of the interior?

Nice finish too. I'm guessing it was a dye stain that you sanded off the high spots?

cheers

Cool design.
I'm planning something similar, iPhone dock + Markaudio CHR 70 + MiniDSP with MiniAMP in a box from old radio. My problem is open back and no separation between the drivers. I hope I can somehow manage it with the MiniDSP.

Hi Eladmi, could you tell more about it such as how you connected the AE, organized its cable, etc? Or at least show better pictures if you have it. And the dimensions of the box. Is it possible to make it smaller as it looks kinda large (maybe it is the angles of the photos). Thanks!
