Lasonic Bluetooth Boombox

Old school looks meet modern tech inside the Lasonic Bluetooth Boombox ($160). Resembling the shoulder-mounted boomboxes of yore, this system offers Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming, a 3.5mm input, a USB input, and an SD card reader, dual 15W full-range drivers, a real-time clock display, EQ, full-function remote, an alarm, and, of course, an AM/FM radio. Vintage hip/hop mixtape/playlist not included.

  • Tombox

    Speakers don't have to be old to look cool — but it definitely doesn't hurt. Made from reused discarded loudspeakers, every Tombox (€190-€250; roughly $230-$300) is unique, offering a built-in rechargeable battery that can last for up to two weeks, an oversized volume knob, a single 3.5mm cable and plug for hooking up your audio source, and retro styling that trumps any modern boombox. Also available in oversized plus models.

  • Bowers & Wilkins Panorama

    Fill your favorite TV-watching area with sound without filling with speakers with the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama ($2,200). This high-end sound bar boasts a mirror black stainless steel enclosure and a black steel mesh grille to help it blend into most systems, can be wall mounted, and offers a full range of inputs, including two optical digital, one coax digital, and two analog RCA, plus a subwoofer pre-out. But what's really important is the sound, and the Panorama has that covered with dual 3.5-inch subwoofers, two 3-inch midrange drivers, a single Nautilus aluminum dome tweeter, and four surround speakers, receiving a total of 100W of power. The downside? It weighs a whopping 32 pounds, so if you're going to wall mount it you'd better choose a sturdy surface — lest both it and your wall come tumbling down.
