Hey y'all, my girlfriend and I were digging through our garage and found a few boomboxes we would love to get some information on.  One is an "Aztron 34841" and the other is an "AutoSonic TSR-585."  We have been digging around the internet and found a little information on both boomboxes, however one website hinted that the, "AutoSonic's are extremely rare and usually is only found in Australia." We came to the forum to seek any information on these really cool old looking boom boxes and suggestions on what to do with them!

What country are you in?

 

The silver one is a re-branded Goldstar TSR-580, which is a very good sounding box if working properly.

I live in Southern California.  This is the only thread I found about the AutoSonic

I'm guessing the black one was made in Korea or Taiwan..?

I am not sure but I just threw some batteries in the AutoSonic and boy let me tell you, this thing is freaking awesome, it sounds beautiful!  But as far as the black one I was not able to get it to fire on.

Oh wow totally looks like the same thing.  I am going to try to play with them and see if I can do an 'easy' restoration/clean up lol.
