If you haven’t ditched your boombox yet – or if you ditched it and then bought another one when it became ironically cool to do so – it’s time to ditch it for good. The TDK Life on Record Sound Cube gives you a modern version of a portable stereo package. Fill up any room you drop it in with whatever tracks you’ve got on your iPod/iPhone thanks to the Sound Cube’s multi-directional sound capabilities. Even control the music on your USB flash or external hard drive with the front facing dial or plug in a guitar or mic and mix it with some drum and bass track. At 17 pounds we wouldn’t recommend hoisting it on your shoulder 24/7 while walking the block though.
