Hello everybody !

I am not really a collector but as I have a photography project about '80s, I bought several boombox.

I love retro item as I am retro computers and games collector, so I dislike having non functionning hardware.
I am trying to make these boombox as new as possible.

So I 've got :

Hitachi TRK-7620 / 3D7
Philips (Magnavox) D8304
Philips Roller D8008
Schneider TR 4815/19

Schneider TR 1821

Schneider TR 1850
Thomson MRK 472T

Welcome aboard, DP!  That little Schneider TR-1821 is very nice - also the Thomson MRK-472T.  I don't recall ever seeing that Thomson before.  :cool: :thumbsup:

Good work.

There were so many unique design elements on each boombox. Unlike today where everything is boring.

Welcome.

 

Its interesting that photography has brought you to boomboxes, because for many of us boombox collecting has led to, perhaps not an interest in photography per-se, but certainly an appreciation of a good photo and more effort in our own work.
