Many of the reviews mention the weight of this unit as a negative attribute, even saying that the unit is not truly "portable". I wonder if these people have ever owned true high-powered, quality speakers. This boombox is SO loud and sounds SO good, I'm suprised it doesn't weigh twice as much. If I had wanted a light radio with tinny, empty sound, they could be found for hundreds less in any discount pharmacy store. For those that claim you can't take this thing to the beach, poolside etc., I would recommend vitamin supplements. Not only is it easy to carry, you WILL be the envy of wherever you bring it.

I bought this as a gift for my wife. I considered a BOSE or CAMBRIDGE tabletop unit, but decided I would opt for something she could take poolside or on weekends to our small cabin. This radio looks gorgeous on granite kitchen counters, wooden bookcases, on top of the piano, on a desk, anywhere. Pre 1970, radios were made to look like furniture that would fit virtually any decor. Once things started going solid-state, manufacturers tried to make everything look "futuristic". Most modern radios are loaded with silver plastic, faux chrome, and redundant or decorative knobs, speaker grills and the like. Why on earth would I ever want to have something like that on display? This thing is a throwback (think Tivoli model 1).

Sound is exemplary. SO loud and CLEAN. I've tried it with a thumbdrive, iPod, and FM tuner. All great. No hop from the woofers, no clip from the tweeters. It sounds as good as any BOSE, without needing the counter space for the circuitous porting.

With its leather strap, minimalist style, hidden function indicators, and outrageous sound, I consider this to be the best dollar-for-dollar value in the portable audio market.

I would also second the advice to turn the volume on your iPod to zero, and turn off the iPod EQ.

I couldnt be more pleased.

Amazon link to 77000015402:
http://www.amazon.com/TDK-Record-...pg__header

Seems like it comes with Bluetooth, with FM/AM, power by 10pcs D battery. Then what's the difference to the 139usd one?
