You know what I like BEST about this radio...Like me, it has GIVEN UP on FM radio! Like me, it understands that Clear Channel, the company that owns all the radio station in the United States SUCKS and there is no reason EVER to tune in!

 

Looking forward to a full review when your's shows up.

Wow.....how come nobody posted about this before?  Aiwa was resurrected in Chicago, and they're selling a new-gen CS-880!

Looks good, from this point not bad for that US company which bought Aiwa brand name.

I am buying it by it's proposed specs. The look is wicked awesome. I love the TDK. But it just comes up a little short on power. I hope AIWA pushes it further. TDK specs are 35 watts output, AIWA claims 200 watt output. Which to me is likely divided by its 5 drivers. A guestimate of 50 watt for sub, 40 each speaker and perhaps 35 per tweeter would bee more than what the TDK pushes. Guess I'll know in October :yes:

Ha ha, they posted an April Fools version of it on Twitter.  Nice rendering, wish it was real!

Looks like my old paper shredder. It even has the same type of rear handle!
'Aiwa' really needed to go with that shape to get the ideal cabinet dimensions for BASS!
I can respect the function over form concept.

I bet it cranks with all the specs listed. Quick swap out battery concept is a great feature for day long sound events.

Looking forward to a user review!!

James.... :-)

at least it has some kind of line in. With no tuner or even a CD player leaves you with having to keep thinking of tunes to stream. I like to let music run it self sometimes.

Yeah. If no line in, I would not depend on blue tooth only. Not a chance

Honestly it's not the kind of box you'd carry on the street anyway.  Just doesn't have that kind of style.

D class amps are all about fantastic sound quality and extreme efficiency. 1/7th the power consumption of a similar output AB amp - wouldn't Boombox manufacturers back in the day have loved to have that tech in '78?!

Anyone out there who hasn't experienced a modern portable D class amp should give one a listen - amazing stuff!

Damn, that's impressive.

 

So far, this is the first modern system I would consider buying.

 

Here is another review:

 

Seems to be a solid unit. 

 

NO, you can't huff it around by the handle, but you could still hoist it up on your shoulder  :w00t:

I watched the 2 reviews so far Bill and I'm really liking what they are saying.
I'm really leaning toward this thing!
you gotta post a review when it arrives.

Well the 3 speaker TDK was awesome in my opinion on sound. Just had to many bugs. And the new BT TDK s--cks on loudness for sure

I emailed to get full specs on all speakers. This is the response. Thanks so much for the order. 200W is the peak capacity of the amps. 60W rms for the woofer 20W for the mids and 15W for the tweeters.

But elsewhere on the website it says only 100 watts.

 

The midrange speakers should have been given paper surrounds for better guitar, IMO.
