You have until the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2011 to rip your old cassette tapes to MP3, or purchase your mix tape favs in MP3 format and shuttle them to a USB stick. Why January? That's when TDK plans to resurrect the boombox era with the release of its Three-Speaker Boombox, CNet reports.
This modern twist on a boombox features three drivers consisting of a 15W woofer in the middle and two 10W stereo speakers on either side. Crunch the numbers and you'll find that comes out to 35W (RMS).
TDK retains the the same general form factor as those boomboxes you used to crank your Beastie Boys tracks with, but with a modern touch of gloss and connectivity options that include a USB port (supports iPhone and iPod touch), RCA, minijack, and a 1/4-inch instrument input.
If all this sounds groovy, start saving your ducats now. The Three-Speaker Boombox will run $500.
