Hi everyone- I have to ask:What boombox are you listening to or cranking way up to I should ask??This can be an ongoing thread-other days just put the "other" boomer your listening to.

Mine this week is:My original JVC-PC-55JW I bought brand new in 1985'.
There is just something special about listening to an original 80's boomer that you personally brought brand new.
It's so powerful-I love it!!

I'll have to get out all "The Papers"-Yes Tony,your not the only one that has all his papers on his original boombox.

So-let us all know what box your cranking out to!!
Have a super weekend-GB. :-) :-D :-P

Friday night it was Juice Newton on this Sony CFD-444, a recent Salavation Army thrift find. Not the biggest sound, but love the vertical CD player. (Yeah, it still works!)

Then you want the RX7200, I really like the looks of that one as well. To bad the digital tuner only goes up to 90 MHz, it was a Japanese only boombox. I'm surprised it was Japanese only since it's a gorgeous box and probably would have sold well elswhere.

Hi everyone-I know I srarted this thread about listening to my JVC-PC55JW and now here's a couple of pics!
Sorry-I forgot to take them while it was on.
Tonight I show a killer photos with it on and all the lights.
Bobby-Here's a close up of that original sticker.
I love this thing-many,many memories associated with my personal grail.Now don't give me a hard tome about the HSM clock.
I got it for 3.00 at goodwill and it's very loud-It will wake you up!
BTW-That is not a mirage-There's a JVC-PC-55C! right underneath this one and multiple 777's behind it!! :cool:
have a super weekend-GB. :-) :-D :-P

:morepics: :rock: :-P

Cloudy with a chance of showers outside tonight.

Inside... chillin' with music from MY TEEN YEARS on the trusty ol' Quasar GX-3661 (version of the Panasonic RX-5600... or was it the 5650???).

Anyway, it's Saturday night and IT'S MY PARTY!

This is what I'm "cranking" in my living room. I've got the M90, 777z, PH492 and FH5 hooked up via rca's. Playing various music through my laptop. But nothing sounds better then playing old school hip-hop/freestyle. I truely believe that's what they were made for.

Nice wall o' blasters there Peter, Out of all of thos boxes, which one sounds the best at medium volume???

I've got one of the Panasonic RX-DT707's playing some Bob Marley right now.

Ok, truth be told, that box is in my son's nursery (he's 2.5 months old) and the Bob Marley tunes have been made into lullabye music. He's on the floor with my wife trying to have a conversation.

Hey Jaetee,

The M90 and Sony FH5 have clear, full room filling sound at like 3-4. The DT75 booms the best bass at mid volume:-)
