These days everyone has an iPhone, iPod, or other MP3 player that makes it easy to bring thousands of songs with you wherever you go. These devices work great when you listen through headphones, but you can’t crank up the music like in the old days when you might lug a ghetto blaster around on your shoulder. Speaker cases like the iMaingGo X or the Eco Extreme work well for listening to music with friends, but when you really want to party down you need something like the TDK Sound Cube.
As the modern equivalent of a boombox, the TDK Sound Cube is a portable speaker system that can fill a room with 360-degree sound. Use the cable to play music from your iPhone or iPod, and charge while you play. It also has a built-in FM tuner, so you can listen to the radio. Plug it into the wall outlet using the included cable, or run it off batteries (12 D-Cells) for true portability.
Rethink stereo. The TDK Life on Record Sound Cube provides powerful, multi-directional sound in a distinct, compact design that works anywhere, inside or out.
Two powerful coaxial drivers deliver space-filling sound in a unique, bold design. An innovative equalizer gives your music a visual heartbeat, while rotary dials give you control over the music source, volume and tone. Digital data streaming allows premium audio decoding and playback while charging Apple iPod and iPhone devices.
Inputs include USB, 3.5mm and auxiliary ports that let you connect an iPod, iPhone, smartphone or USB flash drive. You can even plug in your guitar or microphone and mix with other music sources.
Order the TDK Sound Cube for $259.95 from Amazon.com. It is also available for $228 with free shipping to store at Walmart.com, for $299.95 from BestBuy.com, and on sale for £269.99 with free delivery from Firebox.com.
