Boom Cases

Boom Cases

We like vintage luggage as much as the next guy, but with so many lightweight, airline-ready alternatives available, why not find something else to do with it... like turn it into a boombox? That's exactly what the creator of Boom Cases ($250 and up) did. Each case features a 3.5mm input for connecting a variety of audio sources, built-in amplification, a rechargeable battery good for 7+ hours of playback, and a built-in charger that lets you plug the case in when you're staying put for the night.

  • Denon 100 Turntable

    In celebration of the company's 100th anniversary, Denon returns to its roots with the Denon 100 Turntable ($2,500). This high-end record player features the company's high-performance direct-drive turntable technology, compatibility with the new DP-A100 cartridge, a five-year warranty, 100th anniversary logo badges, and a signed certificate of authenticity from the chief production engineer who hand crafted the device. For serious audiophiles or rich, vinyl-crazed hipsters only.

  • PVC Pipe Speakers

    We've installed a subwoofer in a bucket before, but it would take a little more ingenuity to come up with these. PVC Pipe Speakers ($200) are handmade by Chicago-based ikymagoo, and feature 3-inch magnesium/aluminum alloy full range drivers, a bass port on the end of the pipe/stand, three-way binding posts on the back, and a hand-painted high gloss lacquer finish. Unfortunately, they aren't powered, so you're going to need your own amp if you want to do more than just look at them. [via]
