It’s been a long time since there was a product we were willing to buy 6 AA batteries for. Once you hit a certain age in life (post GI Joe/Transformers/TMNT) you don’t even really expect Christmas presents to need batteries. Yamaha is going old school with the boom box style PDX-11 Portable Speaker. Load up the stage-light-style PDX-11 with 6 AA batteries, throw your iPod/iPhone in the dock connector and get down. The acoustic experts at Yamaha understand the importance of bass, so they somehow managed to pack a 4″ woofer along with their unique two-way speaker system into the roughly 9″ x 9″ x 9″ package. There’s also a remote and four different colors available so you can customize your impromptu dance party to your liking.
