Major nostalgia alert!
Raise your hand if you used to listen to music via cassette tapes, and of course, used a cassette player. If you were a child of the 80’s and 90’s like I was, you definitely did.
Rewinding and fast-forwarding instead of skipping tracks to find songs, flipping to side A or Side B, dealing with the occasional unwinding of the tape… ah, those were the good ol’ days. You probably haven’t thought about using cassette tapes in years.
Well, guess what? Those days are back and in a huge way! The ION Boombox Deluxe Bluetooth Speaker allows you to travel back in time while simultaneously enjoying the latest in audio tech.
ION Boombox Deluxe
First off, can you say 80’s? I LOVE the vintage look of this very modern boombox. The coolest feature – the cassette player – is front and center.
This is a high-quality cassette tape player/recorder that plays your entire tape collection, plus you can make new recordings off the radio, with the built-in microphone or from an external source.
Its two VU meters look great and help you dial in your recordings at just the right level. Two robust full-range speakers powered by 14 watts of system power crank out powerful bass and clear highs, so wherever you are, it’s a party!
Bringing this boombox out is sure to attract attention and take everyone back to the 80’s.
Retro Meets New
The ION Boombox Deluxe Bluetooth Speaker may look retro, but it’s as modern as can be: It streams music wirelessly from any Bluetooth®-enabled device and it has USB playback capability to handle virtually any other music source.
In short, this boombox is totally bad to the bone while being totally accessible for us to use in 2019. Now, who still has their collection of cassettes and mixtapes and wants to party?
