tdk boombox

oh, how i love aesthetically pleasing gadgets - especially vintage classic redesigns. three words - touch sensitive buttons. swoons. i think it's time to upgrade my dusty minimalistic tdk cube with tdk's sleek redesign of the classic boombox. comes in two models - 1) larger three speaker model with a subwoofer in the center; 2) two speaker model with a leather strap. not that i intend to walk down the street with my modern boombox, but knowing i have the option to is nice, and the leather strap makes it that much more snazzy. but the handle on the three speaker model is so smooth, and how can you say 'no' to subwoofer. decisions, decisions.

"The analog switches typical of old-school blasters have been swapped out for touch sensitive buttons embedded into the front of the device, similar to those found on many smart phones. While all of the information displayed is digital, it has a decidedly analog feel, even including a retro-styled EQ. Controls include a left knob for controlling the power and volume and one on the right for toggling through radio stations or adjusting the settings. Both models have USB, 3.5mm and RCA auxiliary ports to connect a huge variety of music sources. There is also a larger auxiliary port that allows you to connect a guitar or microphone in case you want to join in the music magic." -
