Here is a little video of an UNBOXING of a radio I brought home from the UK Meet. HUGE thank you to Stereomad for the hook up and to Hisrudeness for the assist on getting it boxed up and helping me get it to and through the airport in London!

I agree with everyone, totally under rated box in both size and sound quality. 

 

She fits in real nice at home, had to boot the Emerson, but I am going to do a rework of the shelves to get her in

 

 

Glad your happy with it chris

 

Thanks Lee, you really live up to your name, you are STEREO MAD!

 

I don't know how you knew I wanted this one, but I appreciate it.  :thumbsup:

Yes they did, even though it was a stressful run at the end.

 

So, this was the finally deal, even though the flight was delayed, the check in times were the same, so on bag check, we were late. I had paid for one checked bag, the 920 case. I wanted to pay for the second box, the TV, but they wanted me to use a debit card, which for what ever reason wouldn't work. They don't accept credit cards. So as the clock was ticking, the guy ran to his boss, boss said just print a label and send it. So it was a free shipment.

 

However, I had to run the whole length of Gatwick with my back pack and carry on bag, in jeans and hiking shoes!, ended up missing the terminal turn off and went to far, then had to double back. I was a sweaty gooey mess when I got to the gate. I was sweating profusely for 20 minutes. AND THEN, the flight was delayed for an hour and a half!

 

Small price to pay for a free shipment! Saved $35. BTW, it only costs $35 to ship a box through the airline. Not bad!

Excellent video - and what a thoroughly nice Gent you are, Sir.  After all the hectic dashing about the flight was delayed?  There's a word for that!

Yeah, there is a word for that, it's easyJet!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: 

 

I suppose if I didn't want to use the poorly lit, dead end terminal at the farthest point in the air port I would have spent a mere 5 euro's more and flown Lufthansa :lol:  :blink:  But then I would have been 3 pounds short on my radio purchase  :w00t:  :lol:  :lol:

 

These things are very complicated. :hmmm:

I think feeding your box snacks and coffee is taking caring for your boombox too far Chris

That's what I thought, but someone (can't remember who, maybe Miles) insisted there is a color TV Boombox! What is the model of the other Sharp TV Boombox?

 

Rad score Chris! Congrats.

 

Thanks ralein1, My TV Boombox collection is coming along!


I have more radio's with TV's, but these are my biggest

Such a classy looking box Chris. Local member, Dan scored one of these a while back and I was amazed how bassy it was!! A real piece of useable art.

Congrats,

James..... :-)
