Summary: I purchased the new version of the kaboom boom box locally thinking it would be of the same quality. I was wrong. I will say they have made it ipod compatible to a degree and it can play mp3's off of a usb drive. The bad is they redesigned the way the bass drivers vent and made them smaller. They use to vent out through tuned ports on the back of each side of the box, now though they vent through the front.
Summary: ok.. i have been waiting for this Kaboom to finally make it to the states.. i received mine today.. some things to mention.. this is a 40 watt kaboom.. not the 52 watt older kaboom.. the side firing subs are also smaller.. if you love the deep deep bass of prior Kaboom models.. dont buy this one.. if you like moderate "in your face" mid/bass.. then this Kaboom is for you.. it's almost the same size as older kabooms.. and has a managable wieght..
Summary: jvc have made a nice boombox but unfortunatly definatley aint the king of boomboxes, if you want the creme of boomboxes try going back in history and try and get your hands on a PHILIPS AZ8304 ..definatly king of the boomboxes ..
Excerpt: Für den Preis habe ich eine schönere Verarbeitung erwartet. Der Sound ist dennoch gut! Einem Freund der in meinem Alter ist, würde ich das Gerät nicht empfehlen, weil es wohl eher in ein Jugendzimmer passt, als in die Wohnung eines Erwachsenen.
