Are there two more depressing words in the English language than “Sold Out”?  Okay, maybe “It’s positive,” but still, when we find something we want, we hate seeing those red letters holding us back.  The Gramophone iPod Station, while no longer purchasable, is still pretty sweet.  Nothing typifies the balance of retro and modern we seek in our homes like this iPod Station from – the always too feminine sounding – Pottery Barn.  The brass turn-of-the-century gramophone usually associated with muffled voices and dampened horns can now spit out the muffled voices and dampened horns of some lo-fi bands you’re into.  The frame is made from maple veneers with a deep-espresso colored stain and the whole unit would fit nicely in any retro-minded home.
