The Atari 2600 Speaker Lets You Pump Music and Play Pong

As someone who grew up playing PlayStation it is tough for me to truly appreciate the awesomeness of the Atari 2600 Speaker Dock. From a DIY point of view the project truly is impressive. Daniel McLeod of Black Mountain Audio gutted a 30-year-old Atari 2600 and replaced its innards with two speakers.

The dock is shown in the pictures connected to an iPod, but does not feature a 30-pin connector, using a 3.5mm jack instead. This is good news for those who don’t own iPods (but bad for those who want their device to charge while listening to music). The Atari 2600 Speaker Dock also comes with an external sub-woofer that was too large to fit inside the console and sells for a cool $100.
