Live from CES: Modded Lasonic TRC-931

What you're seeing here is a bit of a tragedy: A vintage Lasonic TRC-931 (v2), vivisected to include a built-in DVD player and screen where once lived a tape deck. There were other TRC-931 on display in Lasonic's booth, some with audio minijack inputs, built-in MP3 players with SD slots; that sort of thing.

Taking a Dremel to these classics would be a full-on shame if it weren't for the fact that Lasonic still has a warehouse full of TRC-931. So many, in fact, that they are considering selling the classic boom box stock perhaps late this year.
