You had me at "Nakamichi".

My main desktop stereo is Nakamichi System One Compact. I had it since the early 90's.

I've been actually wanting one of these for my stereo...



Panasonic tx-5500
(It even says "Bb" ...actually stands for B Flat... where the vacume tube is)

But it usually goes for super high price... and has no smartphone integration... If I can find one for right price, I would still grab one though...

Thank you! I should update the art if I can locate the original file... I no longer have that much hair on my head now

Re: Gen 1: Center Dash Handles

wonder how well that vacuum tube would hold up in a car... i know that Amps have issues with vibrations breaking tubes... and thats one expensive unit to maintain

I'm a mother phuckin evil genius... for real

To be honest... I think that vacuum cube is more of a gimmick than an actual functioning one...

Still, it sits there like a boss!
