Boomboxes might have been popular in the day, but for those who can appreciate the portability and the loudness that comes from a boombox, but would prefer a slightly modern take, JVC’s recently announced RV-NB90-B boombox could be worth checking out. The device will feature two subwoofers with a 4 channel amplifier, a CD player, Bluetooth 2.1, USB and FM Radio, and most interestingly there will be a dedicated cradle for your iPhone or iPod device. Safe to say that thanks to its USB and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, non-iOS devices like Android should have no problems pairing with it. The RV-NB90-B will offer a total output of 40W and can be operated either by battery or plugged into a power source. It is expected to retail for ¥37,000 (~$457) but no word if it will be made available outside of Japan.
