I've got a lot of radios that I'd consider rare, ones that only a couple of other collectors have, like my red Perdisco, Denons and such.

But the radio I have that I consider the rarest is ironically the one I had in the 80s that I've recently scored as I've never ever seen another in anyones collection or any other place online.

And now, I have BOTH colour variations, the silver one I didn't even know existed until recently.

So I'd say this Philips of all my 150+ boomboxes is the most rare model I own.



Rock On.

Hey Skippy...That RX-F20 you have, does it have a line in/line out RCA jacks, and a built-in transformer? That looks nice! I also love that RX-5700! When and where did you get that one?


Hey Matrix,the RX-F20 does have RCA line in and line outs but it requires an 9 volt ac adapter to operate on ac voltage. :yes: :thumbsup:
The RX-5700 I for from BadboybillI traded a few boxes for it and my left nut,LOL!!!! :angelic: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hmm I'll go through mine today and post some pix.. but where does 'rare' stop? Is a DiscoLite rare?
I could say a lot of my radios are rare in .au just because they've been imported from the u.s or .jp.
Lasonics are ULTRA rare here, for example.

So are we talking rare based on your locality or rare based on what you see on Boomboxery?

Setttling this will sve me a lot of work!



Rock On.


I would like to see rare meaning rare full stop !
Disco Robo is meant to be rare but every collector in Australia
has at least 5 :lol:

So whats the rarest amongst fellow collectors on the forum ??

I think these are rare but also agree with many posters that a lot of these are geographically based.

Yes it is same, but I suppose that the cassette holder and turntable attachments comes packed together with the boombox when is new purchased.
So, because is portable you can decide what do you want to attach on back side before going out.
If those SG-740 have side connectors like on the picture below, then I was wrong :blush: , someone else has this boombox also.
However I'm still thinking that this is very rare machine
