Developed by product creation company Sprout Creation, the Vers iPod sound system is the first in a line of iPod and iPhone sound systems that are hand crafted from real wood. The Vers features a class D amplifier, 2-3” custom designed speakers delivering 30 watts peak power, and a 14 function remote. The Vers is hand built and finished, so each system is unique. “Many musical instruments have been made of wood for centuries,” says Dave Laituri, partner and creative director. “Wood simply sounds better, more natural, than any other material out there.” Vers will be available this fall and will sell for $179.

Awesome.  Finally an option to match wood furniture. I am so sick of all of the black and white plastic….

I agree that wood is a welcome change from the current aesthetic for such systems, but c’mon, who the hell are these Vers guys anyway?

I won’t be putting a chunk of money on a product that lacks proven brand recognition, quality, and customer support. I can appreciate someone taking a flyer on a niche product like this, but I’m not sure I trust “Sprout Creations” to churn out top-tier iPod sound.
