So the answer to my question is No? There are no good modern boomboxes?
Like your Avatar BTW[/quote]
That’s down to the individual and you’ll get a lot of different opinions on here. Since those posts are a bit same-ish so I thought I’d offer up a couple of decent websites assuming you’re new to this hobby you might find them interesting.
Thanks the avatar is eye catching. Hypnotises some folks even.

I've had a few modern ones. The only ones I have left are a few modern Lasonics and a TDK one which I do like.

Depends on the features you want but the Aiwa Exos 9, DJ Tech, TDK 2 or 3 speaker, and the i931bt Lasonics. If you want really loud boxes then look at the Bumpboxx and the Diamondboxx.

I've had a few Sony boomboxes throughout the years, which date back to as close as the early 2000's. A lot of modern boomboxes still hold up musically and audibly, but they're missing that "flair" that boomboxes once hold. Chrome accents, cool knobs, eye-catching meters, multiple radio bands, long antennas, etc. Boomboxes definitely shifted into a method of solely listening to music, rather than a statement piece or novelty item. Also, with the share of decent modern boomboxes, there are a PLETHORA of crappy boomboxes, which I'd say began in the late 80's because people didn't want to keep paying for quality.
To answer in short, a modern boombox is sorta pointless, seeing as there are many machines now that can do the job better and more efficiently. I just kept my Sonys for my nostalgia of 2003.
