I'm going to try to get my hands on one to review in the new year so lets hold judgement until then.

I agree let's wait till somebody we know and trust tells us the real deal , that's good enough for me.
Luckily I'm too poor to be impulsive lol.

I feel the same way. If nobody here has one then I personally don't have any opinion whether it's junk or not.

I know it looks pretty cool though, impressive styling even if it is near identical to the 920. For me that's a good start.

Cool ! 

 

as i said in my earlier post, with todays tech there is no reason why this shouldn't sound great. have you heard the sound that comers from those little little beats pil speakers  ? not exactly HIFI but astonishing given the size. 

 

from the promo vid this looks to be a medium sized unit and from the ariel shot at 11 seconds the box looks pretty thick/deep ? plenty of room for a chunky amp/speakers  :thumbsup:

 

 

 

Having said that, i seriously doubt the build quality is gonna be up to cthe boomboxes of the 80's. i hope to be proven wrong  :yes:

  :yes:

 

 

The reason those pills sound good is because they were built with thick solid materials, and they're small anyway, so there isn't much chance of the plastic flexing and resonating and sounding boxy and crappy.  Not so with this GPO.  It's big and boxy, so it will sound like crap unless proper internal braces and plastic densities were used, like what Aiwa did to the EXOS-9.  

 

The reason the Aiwa sounds so good is because they put all their money into the amps, speakers, and internal structure & bracing, rather than chrome trim, LED's, CD player, tape deck, tuner, etc.

Such a shame. Another modern company dropping the ball again. The ones that look good sound crap and the ones that sound good look like shiat.
