Imo, it has the classic look, reasonable sound, nice size and weight to carry around,
If I sold all but a few of my boxes I would keep my 9191.

Yeah the 9191 has that classic look and is perfectly styled. Excellent first box. I don't have one but do have a 9292 which is similar but has LED VU meters and i love it.

Love the 9191...I too have one I would never part with

They come up all the time. In the uk they'll go around £100 on average but I've bought them for less than £50. If the deck isn't working then it's a real easy to work on box.
It would have to be absolutely mint to get anywhere near 190 euros

There are web site (not Ebay) where I can see and purchase a vintage boombox?

Good starter box for sure. Good value if under £100. Minter versions would go for more. How much more is up to you. In general, the longer you collect, the less you'll be prepared to pay for common boxes.
Heaps of info around on getting the deck working right (just in case it doesn't work as well as promised). Things to watch out for are the operation of the slider controls and the Mono/stereo/wide switch that only offers sound output from both speakers when in Mono and wide modes.
