Retro Atari 2600 iOS Speaker Dock


There are plenty of iOS speaker docks available to choose from, but if you are looking for something a little more retro and original, this modified Atari 2600 might be the perfect iOS speaker dock for you.

This retro iOS dock has been created by Daniel McLeod of Black Mountain Audio. Who has removed the original Atari’s internal electronics and replace them with a pair of computer speakers and subwoofer, together with a modified gaming cartridge which has now being converted into a 30-pin dock, for either your iPhone or iPod Touch device.

On the back for the iOS Atari 2600 speaker dock there is a power button, volume control, audio input jack, sub out jack and a power cable. The original controls and joystick are unfortunately for aesthetic purposes only.

McLeod explains:

“I had an old Atari 2600 that had stopped working and I couldn’t just get rid of it, so I converted it to a portable media audio dock. The Atari console had holes in the top where speakers could have gone, but Atari never built it with speakers. I took an old set of computer speakers that had a subwoofer and mounted the raw speakers and amplifier inside the console.”

If the modified Atari 2600 iOS speaker dock is something you could use. McLeod has now made it available on his Etsy shop page priced at $100. But don’t delay if its something you fancy because McLeod only has one of the modified Atari 2600 systems available.
