This is the passive ceramic amplifier made in Italy that produces naturally resonant tones from an iPhone. Designed in Milan, it is handcrafted entirely of slip-cast ceramic fired in Vincenza, renowned since the 18th century for its traditional ceramics that have been compared to the finest Chinese porcelain. The clay itself comes from the Tuscan comune of Montelupo Fiorentino, a prominent center of ceramics production during the Renaissance, its products reaching as far as the first European settlements in Central America. Replicating the curvature and passive amplification of a horn, the amplifier augments sound from an iPhone without requiring auxiliary power or speaker components. The amplifier projects music or phone calls using authentic horn acoustics; simply place an iPhone or iPod in the amplifier’s cradle. Its walnut base provides minimum contact with the horn for optimal acoustic performance.
