Portable Studebaker Stereo

Studebaker Portable Stereo

A little something for all the fans of pink and retro: the portable Studebaker stereo. It features a CD player, AM/FM radio, cassette player and a design that gives a “hint of that old Studebaker grill”.

There’s a drawer-type CD player with an excellent bass boost. It plays not only commercial CDs but also self-compiled CD-R/RW discs. It has a 20-track programmable memory. You can program up to 32 tracks on a disc for playback in any desired order. You can also program a specific track to play several times within the same program, and you can use the program and repeat features together to continuously repeat a programmed sequence of tracks.

Then there’s a cassette player and an AM/FM radio with analog tuning. The cassette player is also a recorder, and you can record directly from the CD player or from the radio. The unit has an Automatic Level Control circuit that controls the recording volume level and prevents overloaded and distorted recordings. A headphone jack is included, so you can listen in private.

The Studebaker Portable Stereo is available from First Street for $19.95.


  1. It’s a CD and tape player too? It looks like a little transistor radio. Only $20? It seems weird, like where does the CD and tape fit?? I wish we could see the back.

  2. Yes, the product description says that it’s supposed to hold a CD player, an AM/FM radio, and a cassette player. I agree, it would be nice to see some more pics of the product.

    Thanks for your comment smartbunny!

  3. I too was skeptical but at the price I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I received a device that looks exactly like the one in the picture, but it was missing just about all of the advertised features. No CD player. No tape player/recorder. The FM radio does not even appear to be stereo. It did have AM/FM and a headphone jack as advertised, but that’s all.

  4. I just found a radio exactly like that, whoever wrote this shud learn about it first, all it is is a portable radio, that’s all, no CD spot, nowhere for cassettes, nothing, people gotta learn about things before advertising them
