Move over Bose Wave Radio, the Vers 1.5R is here! This energy efficient and eco-friendly Vers 1.5R is the ideal compact AM/FM sound system & docking station! Rigid 9mm thick cabinet walls assure a delivery of full, warm, rich natural sound. The AM/FM radio works great as a bedside dual alarm clock radio or it is handy & compact in the kitchen while you're cooking and listening to NPR or your favorite tunes!

Each Vers Audio system is unique and takes over a week to build by hand so it's as beautiful as it is functional. The furniture grade wood veneer cabinets are made from fast-growth wood that is harvested from sustainable managed plantation sources and are available in Cherry, Dark Walnut, Natural Walnut, Bamboo, Black Piano Gloss.

Using the most environmentally friendly bonding agents available, each Vers 1.5R is 100% RoHS-compliant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances). It has an energy saving power supply; even the plastic components are PVC & BFR free. Units are designed for complete disassembly so all parts can be recycled. Packaging is from 100% post-consumer recycled content. Small footprint, big sound!
