Most small iPod-friendly speakers use crappy plastic cabinets that usually sound worse than they look, which isn't saying much. Evergreen, a company out of Japan, is making these wooden speakers that also have a digital clock that seems to glow right out of the wood.
There are two models — DN-WSP1406 looks like a single block of wood with speakers in each end for stereo playback, or the more traditional The DN-WSP1802 stereo pair. Both use a 3.5mm input from a portable audio player. The digital alarm clock has basic features such as a snooze function. Right now, both models are only available in Japan for about $25 each.
