As I have mentioned before, the iconic 80’s ghetto-blasters have been making a bit of a comeback in recently months, and now TDK has also jump on the bandwagon, bringing back this classic.
We absolutely love the sleek design which strikes a balance between old and new with glossy finishes, touch screen control panels, the classic retro rectangular shape and even a leather shoulder strap. They have launched two models, the 3 Speaker Boombox and the 2 Speaker Boombox. Other than size, the main difference between the two is that the 3 Speaker model has a dedicated subwoofer in the center. Both models have USB, 3.5mm and RCA auxiliary ports to connect a huge variety of music sources. There is also a large auxiliary port which allows you to directly connect a guitar or microphone, just in case you want to play along.
The TDK boomboxes are a beautiful reinvention of the retro cool 80’s phenomenon.
They will be available online from January 2011 at $399 for the two speaker version and $499 for the three speaker one.
