Lasonic showed off their prototype old school boombox that has been updated for the new millennium of hipsters.



As Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back put the group into hypnotic pop Nirvana, we admired the 5 band equalizer, USB/SD/MP3 support, DVD drive with display and sweet analog tuner. Hopefully Lasonic will actually bring this to market for their projected $250 pricetag, because we really don't want to "go back to 1985" to relive the experience.

Lasonic? Their boomboxes sucked! All big and ugly and sounded like hell. Gimme a retro Aiwa or Sony or, better yet, a SHARP! They had this wall-of-sound boombox that was GI-FREAKIN-NORMOUS... and loud enough to piss off people for blocks. THAT is what I want. Oh yeah, bonus points to anyone who remembers what the acronym AMS stands for and can explain why it was THE feature to have on yer boombox back in '84 or so.
