All of this talk is largely irrelevant anyway as the performance of any particular M90 or GF-777 is dependant on so many variables.

In other words, one guys M90 can sound very different to another guys M90. I’ve heard some GF-777’s sound like distorting heaps but one particular one I heard was an overachieving powerhouse. :rock:

You’re not buying a brand new item, these boomboxes are way, way past their use by dates so don’t get too hung up on which model was ‘best’ when new way back in 1980!! :-)

No one has mentioned Sanyo or even Crown. I’m also as impressed with the Crown 850 for its deep lows and clean highs in sound!!!

crown 970 is the one to get, it has a handle lol 850 is also good along with the 980........i found the 950 very disappointing although the new owner loves it.

The 850 and 980 sound great, but a simple M70 would beat them in overall volume.

 

Never heard a 970, but supposedly that's the best Crown.

it sounds about the same as a 980 Reli but yea it's the best crown imho because it has a handle if nothing else...and it takes 10 d's verses the 980's 9 d's

 

the m70 is louder and cleaner sounding but id rather the 970 any day lad, im lucky i have all 3

I'll throw in a wildcard: the Panasonic RX 6400. It's loud and loud and very very loud! With Hardman (Mauricio's) speaker bracket customization it's even portable as a single unit. Of course at 44lbs without batteries "portable" is a very loose term.

If you really want to go for the Gusto get a good G f-777 and replace the speakers with modern ones this combination will absolutely f****** destroy any of the other boxes.

The GF 777 is a very powerful Boombox with shiteey speakers.


The one I have for sale has upgraded woofers,sounds great!

For stupid serious bass go with the Toshiba WX-1!! 3-piece though.

Is it the one you're selling that's got the upgraded woofers?

This bad ass as it all.., with modified 80 watts per speaker. Turn volume to absolute MAX, leave the room Before your hears burst, and enjoy a deep bass, clear mids and highs at 0% distortion. 😀

My vote is for the Telefunken Studio 1 and 1M.

Built like a brick shiteehouse and lots of power and 3 way quality speakers.  :stereo:

Not super portable though.

Yeah, the bass of the Studio 1 is astonishing, especially when you consider the time frame it was built.

It "Can be" carried and does take batteries, but fook me if I'm luggin' that thing down the block!

 

The Lasonic TRC-975 with the LBS system hit's freaking hard too.

So a box with the biggest bass and the highest highs....  where's the midrange?  Without the mids, it will just sound like loud ear annoying noise.  In other words, not accurate or balanced.  Take a amplifier with bass/mid/treble controls, turn the midrange all the way down and crank the other two all the way up and see what you got.

 

Bottom line, balance accurate sound is so much better.  Otherwise, just get a equalizer and distort the sound to your ears wishes.

 

M90, RX-7200.... both are awesome, loud and accurate sounding boxes.

The best thing to do would be to go to one of the Boombox meets and test all the boxes out for yourself and see which one speaks to you the most.

James is right!

 

I've heard people complaining about many high end boxes like M90, RX 5350 and GF777. It all depends on the condition in which they are after so many years. 

I remember how GF9696 sounded when I had it brand new out of the box in 1982. No distortion at all even at higher volume. I have 3 of those types and one sound the best of all, others are okay! Again one should not turn the loudness and bass all the way up, you are asking for distorted sound. ~Royce

Totally agree with Norm!

You would know better than me. Lol
Never heard an m90 or even came close to one. It’s got the looks... 😎 as for sound... I wouldn’t know.
But I’m listening to my Panny at this very moment and... dawm!!!! Lol.

Picking up a classic box tomorrow... My second one peace, the other one being a Sony CFS-500, finaly my RX-7200 as arrived. I hear good things about it. Trying not to expect to much. 🙂
