Modern Sound, Retro Appeal

So many sound systems today are cold, hard boxes that might sound ok but bring zero aesthetic appeal to a room. You may want to hide these plastic devices from sight. Not this one. The Vers 1.5R looks as great as it sounds. It’s got all the audio features you need, built into a handcrafted wooden cabinet with a gorgeous retro silhouette.

Modern Sound, Retro Appeal

So many sound systems today are cold, hard boxes that might sound ok but bring zero aesthetic appeal to a room. You may want to hide these plastic devices from sight. Not this one. The Vers 1.5R looks as great as it sounds. It’s got all the audio features you need, built into a handcrafted wooden cabinet with a gorgeous retro silhouette.

The design idea was inspired by a classic 1955 Zenith radio that David Laituri has owned since he was 12. David (on the left) and Tim Trzepacz used to work together at Brookstone before they started Vers as an alternative to plastic-encased sound systems. The co-founders brainstormed a high-quality sound system that would look great and also be sustainable (each Vers system replaces 80% of what could be plastic with wood), and Vers was born.

This small wonder packs an alarm clock, AM/FM radio, and iPod dock with a 15-watt speaker to deliver rich sound in a beautiful package. (For the audiophiles out there, it’s the 9mm-thick walls of the Vers cabinet that give it such accurate sound reproduction). It makes a great bedroom alarm clock, and we love the thought of it in the kitchen, family room, library or office. This is one sound system you won’t want to hide.
