Putting nearly a dozen D cells in this may make it feel old school but I'd forget about putting it on your shoulder-- this is way heavier than I thought it would be. Puts put decent sound though. Kind of a novelty.

Sexy! If it came with a rechargeable battery, I'd totally be down.

I need no more speakers at home.

In for one. I've thought this was gorgeous ever since it was released , listened to it at BB and liked the sound. So kind of wanted one, but could never justify the price. I don't even need a boombox. I guess it'll be nice for working outside and such.

I need to cool down though I just bought the Audysseys for sale the other day.

Does Woot offer a bike mount for this?

Pass. I made my own earlier this year. 10" sub for bass in a truck box with 2 6" subs for highs with an iPod dock mounted at the top. It's all on 2" casters.

A full dozen for the 3-speaker version.

I think 8 D-cells was the record number needed out of all the actual boomboxes I had when I was a kid.

I've owned the two speaker version for almost two years. It's extremely heavy and has some questionable ergonomic choices, and some awkward software. But it is absolutely gorgeous, solid as a tank, and sounds incredible. I am a Grammy-nominated record producer, and I can tell you: this thing rocks.

Damn this looks like a fine new gadget! Really tempted and I know there's no need for another great sounding device, but it is sooooooooooooo sexy looking too :P Might have to sleep on this one...will have a clearer head in the morning.

I thought we were long past the age of dependence on D-Cell batteries for portable music? Oh well, at least now i won't have to track down a copy of "In your eyes" on cassette if needed.

Software? Boom Boxes don't need no software.

A Bluetooth solution for this can be added easily. I used one of these while testing the unit out. It worked really well.

My radio, believe me, I like it loud
I'm the man with a box that can rock the crowd
Walkin' down the street, to the hardcore beat
While my JVC vibrates the concrete
I'm sorry if you can't understand
But I need a radio inside my hand
Don't mean to offend other citizens
But I kick my volume way past 10
My story is rough, my neighbourhood is tough
But I still sport gold, and I'm out to crush
My name is Cool J, I devastate the show
But I couldn't survive without my radio
Terrorising my neighbours with the heavy bass
I keep the suckas in fear by the look on my face
My radio's bad from the Boulevard
I'm a hip-hop gangster and my name is Todd
Just stimulated by the beat, bust out the rhyme
Get fresh batteries if it won't rewind
Cos I play everyday, even on the subway
I woulda got a summons but I ran away
I'm the leader of the show, keepin' you on the go
But I know I can't live without my radio

... can't believe no one punched out an LL Cool J quote till now...

The real question is: Is it too heavy to lift over your head outside your girlfriend's window at three in the morning?

Since this thing has a USB port... would an android device work?

That boombox is a piece of art. Looks like a TDK VHS tape.

I have the two speaker one and it is ridiculously loud. We use it for pool parties and outdoor movies and you would've thought there was a PA system. The sound quality is very good as well - I've never turned it up to 11 (probably not past the "5" mark since it is just so loud) so I can't say if it gets distorted. I got a clearance model at Best Buy for $200 so this is a good deal. Just don't leave the batteries in when it is off - apparently there is an issue with the batteries draining unless you physically remove them.

Hi, I know the volt states 120v, but anyone who got this can help check if thats really the case? No dual voltage??

Mind helping me check the voltage on your boombox? Does it support 110v-220v?

In for two of the 3 speakers, one for my office and one for the house.

Wootgods, do I need to contact anyone to make sure my two separate orders ship to the two separate locations? I placed two separate orders with two different ship to addresses. Gonna be a real PITA to carry that 30 pound beast to a different location if they combine and ship to the same address.

Place one order to one shipping address. Then go back, change the shipping address, and complete the next order.

I did, thank you ThunderThighs. Just wanted to make sure they didn't get lumped together. I take the subway so carrying a 30 pound boombox on the train is not a wise idea, will likely get stink eye from my fellow commuters.

say...is anyone else bored w/ the fact that there is no way to contact Woot? I ordered a knife almost 3 weeks ago and all I get (for the last 3 weeks) is a stupid box that says "were packing your order up"...this is BS

I want one, but I don't have that kinda dough. Guess I'll just stick to my boombox from 1990.*no fancy usb port just radio, tape and cds.

Knowledge is power, but only if you use it.

i saw one of these last year and was really impressed by the sound quality. the only gripe i had with it is the fact that the device youre playing music from is not hidden at all. i hesitated because of that and i think at the time it was $300 at best buy for the 2 speaker set up.
