Summary: I bought this unit after reading all the reviews about it online. Everyone stated it was loud and had great sound. Although it is has deep and rich sound. It is not nearly as loud as I thought it would be. I have taken it out to several volleyball matches and people can stand right over it and hold a conversation. I have a Lasonic boombox and although not really as rich sounding it gets a lot louder.
Summary: Okay so when i bought these i was so excited but after a day of using it. I thought they were gona bump so loud but hell naa they dont. Its pretty cool that the boombox is portable but whos gonna carry this heavy crap on there shoulder, i tried it and it hurts. The woofer in the middle did its job and the boombox was loud but if herd other boombox bump loud or even louder but there cheaper and dont weigh 33 pounds.
Awesome finish, designed for retro, cool beyond the price! Sound is OK, limited bass response
It all started with a Kenwood turntable, Amazon

Summary: The whole TDK retro line is the coolest line in consumer electronics! I want it all! This fit and finish is great, interaction of remote and USB iPod charging is odd, but works. Looks like something from a 70-80s movie, would be awesome if it has better Bass.
Summary: This thing is really heavy. 14.5kg (32 lb). So make sure who and how would carry it if it's needed. Sound is superb. Looks really cool. Controls and user interface are acceptable. Yes, they could be faster, touchscreen button are lousy as usual, but nothing major. Functionality is rather limited: radio, usb-flash drives (with the proper interface - folder navigation and song selections, not just Prev/Next as for the 2-speaker TDK), also line-in or iPhone-in via usb-cable...
Summary: I got this because I'm doing my house in a contemporary design and I thought the way it looks kind of retro future would look slick on my new custom work bench in my garage. And it totally does and I like it for that purpose. But all these people who think the sound quality is amazing must not have ears... It's just okay.
Summary: Please see my review on the TDK Soundcube; I would recommend it over the higher model reviewed below. TDK Life on Record 77000015410 Sound Cube Audio System Bought on WOOT, and I found it curious it was shipped from Amazon. At $219.99 (no tax, $5 ship), I'm happy with it. 1. Build quality: Superb fit and finish. Feels very substantial. Love the handle. Heavy unit. 2.
Summary: This TDK unit sounds good... and it better for the price! Where's the CD player? There is'nt one! I am SO sick of the black monolith look on this and many other modern units! Where's the design, the look, the FEEL?? Some of you may not be old enough to appreciate the "Golden Era" ... 1973-1983, when the receivers and Boomboxes had a mostly silver finish, with a jewel-box tuning section, and bright chrome and brushed aluminum accents.
Summary: Good but not great... After several days listening, this is a good product with the build quality, aesthetics, and even the connections...solid is what I would describe. The letdown was the sound; it never opened up for me and after comparing it with other high-end and similarly priced competitors (Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Wireless AirPlay & Bose Soundock) it went back... It's a shame because I liked the build and look.
Summary: The TDK 3 Speaker Boombox stands out from other music players in its category. It should! The TDK 3 Speaker Boombox costs a great deal more than every other unit you'd logically compare it to. This stylish piece of hardware manages to pull off a modern yet retro appearance. Fittingly named, the 3 Speaker Boombox is profiled with three large uncovered speakers, two woofers and one sub-woofer.
