Q: Is the iVictrola loud?
A: A rather subjective question. It is not as loud as amplified sources but the horns are surprisingly efficient and have enough volume to be useful. I built the first iVictrola to listen to music out in the garden and other places where I cannot plug-in.
Q: What does it sound like?
A: The iVictrola provides sound reminiscent of an old Gramophone. Don’t expect the bass to “bump.” It excels at acoustic music and voices and imparts a vintage sound to your modern device.
Q: Does the iVictrola for iPhone work with iPod or iTouch?
A: No. The iVictrola is entirely acoustic, amplifying the iPhone’s built-in speaker using an antique radio or phonograph horn.
Q: Is the iVictrola compatible with all iPhones?
A: Yes! The current design will work with all iPhones through the 4S. Based on initial rumors, it looks to be compatible with the iPhone 5 as well.
Q: Do all iVictrolas use antique horns?
A: Yes. I am constantly searching for interesting antique horns that are acoustically ideal for iVictrolas. I believe that the patina these horns have acquired over their 80+ year history makes them uniquely beautiful objects.
