Wooden Radios

Lately I've been fascinated with vintage-looking wooden radios. I think they're the perfect mix of modern and clean design with a touch of retro. Plus, one will go great in my Scandinavian beach house that I will have someday ;)

Here are my favorites:

Clockwise from top left: Magno Large $300 | Magno Medium $250 | Magno Small $200 | Magno Micro $150

These wooden radios from Areaware are totally different than anything I've seen around. They have a very vintage feel with those big wooden knobs and the felt. I also like the cute wooden tip on the antenna. The Magno Small and bigger are mp3 compatible.

Of course I had to include the radios from Tivoli Audio. They're simple and beautiful, and like the Areaware Magno, a bit pricey. All their hi-fi radios are mp3 friendly.

Crosley Audiophile Radios

Fortunately for us who are more conservative when it comes to spending, there are these super cool alternatives from Crosley. All their Audiophile radios are iPod/mp3 compatible.

 Sangean Hi-Fi Table-Top Wooden Radios
Top to bottom: WR-2 $126 (on Amazon) | WR-11 $82 (on Amazon)

These radios from Sangean are not as stylish as the other ones but they are worth a mention because they still look pretty nice and are full of features. Both are mp3 compatible.
