Some people enjoy glossy white plastic. Others have a preference for shiny aluminium. Elecom Japan is a little different, opting for a vintage look for their latest iPod speaker dock, the ASP-WP8 made of “high quality wood.” This offering is a touch on the small (220 x 100 x 60mm) and feeble (2 x 5.5 watts of output) side, but that’s okay, because it’s got plenty of portable love for the 2nd-gen iPod nano. Naturally, it’ll take on other MP3 players as well via the stereo mini jack. Complete with a remote and your choice of three wood finishes, the ASP-WP8 will go on sale at the end of this month for about US$135.
