When closed, it looks like any ordinary wooden box. Open it up and you will be greeted by a control panel that resembles a battlefield commander’s radio from World War II. A polished oak chest keeps the interior safe from bumps and knocks. Features include a built-in AM/FM radio, a programmable CD player, a cassette deck (who listens to those these days anyway), twin speakers, and a headphone jack. Its aesthetics is enhanced with the presence of chrome corner guards and latches. The Spirit of St. Louis CD Boombox costs £299.99 and is powered by 8 D batteries.
