Wow! That's one amazing transformation. Imagine what that would look like with a bit of darkened perspex instead of clear stuff as it has now. So when it's dormant, it looks like the back window of one of those limos that young women barf in during their drunken nights out but, when you switch the box on, it could come alive with some pure white LEDs hidden in there.
Also, I need to know this: 9090 vs 8989, which is better and what are the differences between them in terms of the way they sound?
DUDE! Tinted Tuner Glass that goes clear when turned on! That's a SICK idea!
As for the 9090 vs the 8989....that's apples and oranges. They are so far apart in every way shape and form.
9090: Top controls, smaller in size, twin antenna's, slider controls, two analogue VU's, punch key cassette buttons, upside down deck, no line in our out, tuner light, loudness switch, stereo wide function
8989: Front controls, bigger in size, single antenna, knob controls, one LED VU, semi logic deck, right side up deck, line in and out, no tuner light, no loudness switch, no stereo wide function,
The few things they do have in common, they take 8 batteries, have battery strength meters, SW1&1 AM, FM, APSS music search, Metal CrO2 tape play back capability....oh and they both say SHARP on them!
I'll have to do a sound test between the two..
