Welcome aboard Wes. It is way to cool to have you as a member of Boomboxery. I also have many Lasonic boomers. If I could only have one new product from Lasonic it would be a replacement Band Selector & Function Selector Switch for the TRC 931. I have three full functioning TRC 931s ( I have replaced this switches from a donor/parts TRC 931), but the plastic gear inside these switches get brittle and crack rendering the switch inoperable. It is only a matter of time when this will happen to my Lasonic TRC 931s. :sad:

Welcome aboard!  Know any designers or product development people there?  Tell them to join and ask for our opinions about what makes a boombox great!  What better way to ensure your future products will succeed?

 

Oh, and bring back the 920!

Had my hands on a 951 a few months ago but sent it back as it had amp issues. Unit was mint condition too.

The reason it's so expensive is because only a hand full of them were made. We haven't even been able to get a hold of any ourselves just yet because all our stock went straight to Japan. We might be able to get a few more made that we can sell straight on our site but we don't know when just yet. 

 

As for the distribution, email me directly at wes@lasonic.com

I'm sure Albert would be interested

I also would love to own an original Mastermind edition Lasonic.

 

The FSAS i931's are still my favorite...and the sound is great...especially compared to the newer i931BT.

Bad boy bill. Do you have a copy of the user guide for the I931BT ? If so, any chance you can scan a copy? Also, does the USB have a limit read? I have a 16gb that it will not read. Yet my TDK reads it.

I believe I have user sheet. :lol: It's only a one sided sheet but I believe there might be a limit of 8 gb but I never use that so not 100% sure and it's not mentioned on manual.

 I totally regret selling my 1st gen 931 with original box a few years back. Would love to have kept !!

 

 Has anyone heard from Wes since January last year? It would have been nice to hear of upcoming retro repros..

well aware of lasonic as the TRC-935 was the second boombox i owned after my little yamaha PC-8. i don't have acces to the pics i took of it before it was stolen, but i customized it "duck rock" style.

 

i have a lasonic RELATED question... if lasonic and crown were actually the same company, what was the model name of the crown, i believe, boombox that had 10 or 12 inch woofers? i can't find info on that mystery box anywhere, but i remember it being named as a crown, and it having fake gold trim.

 

as to requests, how about toning down the "tacky factor" on lasonic boomboxes eg. no chrome and not so many colors... just a minimalist "eurostyle" high tech look. i know, most other people like shiny objects, but a plain charcoal grey box with matching knobs etc. and simple white lettering like a stereo component works for me.

 

for what it's worth... this is the tackiest boombox EVER! when i saw one next to the one i was told had 12" woofers in a shop around 1992, i couldn't stop laughing

 

DSC07717.JPG

had to re-post this alternate pic after the original got blocked

 

besides the toy looking lights and fake chrome, it's just so busy looking with all of those graphics.

 

regardless, my TRC-935 sounded great and stomped a dozen other boxes where i bought it and the 10 band EQ rocked. i would have preferred VU meters over 5 segment LEDs too
