So true man. I always wondered why they had an image of a dude carrying the box on his shoulder pointing to an exclamation mark symbol. Once I got to 30 on the volume and then found it went to 40 from there without breaking a sweat...at that point, I fully understood that symbol. If you cranked this thing on your shoulder aiming at your face you would experience hearing loss no doubt.

Hi, Reelcassette. Your Panasonic RX-CT900 looks interesting and neat, practically pristine. Pardon my asking, but: is its tuner analog or digital? And does it tune shortwave? (I have some interest in atypical bands like shortwave.)

 

Anyway, it’s always commendable to have the skill and the patience to restore such electronics, sourcing parts for them, cleaning filthier parts, testing them and then sharing the pretty pictures (and any videos) of the fixed-up “finds” with other fans. I’m not really “technically inclined” myself, but thanks for sharing.

This machine sports a digital tuner with FM/LW/MW.

Hay everyone, Haven't posted on here for aaaages...

I noticed that the condition many of you have kept your Boomboxes in is amazing, Many of them look as though you've only just taken off the wrapping paper...

its awesome,

 

Anyway i'm still posting, However seeing some of these above photos makes me really regret selling both of my C100f's back in 2010, hard times tho..

When i get them back i'll do to them what I've done to these...

 

Enjoy....!!

As always I'm cranking the Sanyo c7 I got from you and she's a tank lol.
3 years and its never moved because it spanks anything that even tries to take her spot.

Now that looks like a boombox one would love to have. Pleasingly uncluttered façade, likely respectable power rating (over 40 watts, yes?) and it even tunes shortwave in two bands: the familiar SW1 and SW2. (Tunes them digitally, to boot. Reminds one of a – of my – LASONiC DTS-98 … which, sadly, remains a non-functioning, internally wrecked mess upon delivery :sad: …)
